Comic Review: Avatar, The Last Airbender: The Promise
For fans of the show who can never get enough Avatar this is a welcome edition. Dark Horse brings back Aang and team Avatar as if they never left, with the help of author Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Level Up) and artist team Gurihiru (Fantastic Four, Spiderman).
Zuko is now the Fire Lord and ruling is never as easy as it seems. With the war over, now is the perfect time to spread peace. The harmony restoration movement is there for just that reason, to return Fire Nation colonies in the Earth Kingdom back to their people. A seemingly easy task but with many unforeseeable consequences.
Instantly, you are drawn back in to everything you love about Avatar. Aang with his words of wisdom and moments of complete childlessness. The stern but lovable Toph Bei Fong and the continuation of her own creation-metal bending. Sokka, the loyal maker of plans and catchphrases. The wonderfully bright and warm coloring prepares you for that happy, tingly feeling that you only get from the world of Avatar. It’s good to be back.
