Comic Review: Avatar, The Last Airbender: The Promise

Avatar, The Last Airbender:he Promise

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.

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!!

This is truly a treat for the Avatar fans out there. 26 mini stories from all three books (Water, Earth, Fire) plus, 2 stories that take place after the end of the series. This Dark Horse title brings together all the various artists and illustrators that have worked on these stories.

Come one, come all and read the untold tales of the Avatar and his crew during their quest to bring peace to the four nations. Hear such stories as, where did the last of the Airbenders hide? When was Zuko and Mai’s first kiss? Who would win in an Earthbending showdown–Toph or King Bumi? Come and find out!

So much fun to be back in the world of avatar again. It’s nice to see where these stories lie in terms of the the actual events during the TV show. The humor is back and in full force with none of it feeling out of place or forced. With the varying artist’s you get to see their interpretation of Avatar. Any Avatar fan would be more than happy to have this comic.
