Comic Review: Avatar, The Last Airbender: The Search, Part One
It’s the one question that was left unanswered and deliberately teased at the end of the TV series. We all want to know what happened to Zuko’s mom. Dark Horse Comics has finally decided now is the time to answer that question. Who better to tell this story than the guys from the last series (Avatar: The Promise), writer Gene Luen Yang ( Loyola Chin and the San Peligran Order, American Born Chinese) and artist team Gurihiru (Wolverine: First Class, Hulk: World War Hulks).
Now that things have settled down in the Earth Kingdom for Fire Lord Zuko, he can turn his attention to more personal matters. Namely, what happened to his mother and where she is. With his father being the only person who knows the truth about her, there is only one other person who is able to help him. His sister, Azula, might be the only person who can help Zuko find their mother — if she can be trusted.
This book is great. It’s nice to see the flashbacks of Ursa throughout the story. It gives you a sense of what kind of person she was and how she came to be married to Ozai. The book is setting up the next two; when you get to the end it’s just getting into the swing of things. It just makes me even more excited for the next two parts. I can’t wait!!
