Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, and a trio of Air Acolytes witness the seating of the first coalition government with representatives from both Fire and Earth Nations, then they travel to a sacred site to celebrate an ancient Air Nomad festival—but trouble’s waiting for them. Aang runs headlong into an unexpected conflict between his desire to resurrect his lost Air Nomad heritage and his vision of global unity among the Nations, and Toph stumbles into emotional tension between her past and present lives. It’s an intelligent, entertaining story that ends with a juicy cliffhanger.
Story, characters, and art preserve the feel and appeal of the original and continue to nicely fill the gap between ATLA and The Legend of Korra while weaving a tale that stands quite well on its own merits and strikes a good balance between thoughtful interaction among the characters and dynamic action. Whether you’re a fan or are simply looking for a solid fusion of comic art and storytelling in an intriguing speculative universe, you won't be disappointed.
Story: Aang wishes to continue to follow traditions. But this collides with Toph's laid back attitude - she's tired of what she considers meaningless acts and being told to do something without being told why. When Aang takes the group and his students on a pilgrimage to a sacred airbender location, he finds a factory and shanty village that is polluting the air and water - and desecrating his memories. The head of the factory is a fan of Toph's and convinces her that the way forward is through automation. But Aang and Katara fear that this advancement into technology is causing serious harm. As well, Aang is guided by the spirit of the previous airbending avatar, who is desperately trying to tell him something is wrong. Both will butt heads on how to address the situation.
The artwork is fun and really stays true to the Avatar mythos. It's amusing to watch Sokka get into trouble in the background as Aang and Toph propel the story. It may seem a bit cartoony and overwrought at times, the messages pounded a bit too hard with extra visual cues, but make no mistake this is a quality piece.
The book is a nice transition leading up to the Legend of Korra - the beginning of the industrial age and comingling of all the tribes. Both Toph and Aang have good points to make on a complex subject: Aang focusing on preserving the past and tradition with Toph looking toward the future and making a better life. Both accurately note that each is afraid of the past: Aang of losing it and Toph running away from it.
In all, a great middle school read for fans of the series. Reviewed from an ARC.
Good thing The Rift Part One came out.
Let me start by saying, no Zuko is not in this one. The cover doesn't include him and the first dialogue is pretty much saying that he is not going to make an appearance. Even though I'm a major Zuko fan, I understand considering The Search focused on him and his relationships. But, that doesn't mean it can't still be an excellent story!
A lot of this story seems to focus on the fact that Toph and Aang are foils to each other. Since Toph is generally more vocal, Aang is accompanied by three air acolytes so he can throw passive aggressive jabs at her and say he's teaching his students... this in unlike Toph who outright calls Aang's ideas foolish. Depending on how and where you were raised, you can feel either side is more right. However, both of them have solid reasons as to why they feel the way they do.
The conflict and tension between these two characters continues to rise throughout the story. I almost feel it's a conflict that was bound to happen. Even in flash backs with Toph and Aang during the Legend of Korra you can see that even though they are really close friends, their completely different demeanor causes some tension and fights.
Sokka is funny as always and the mild, loving sibling banter between him and Katara is always amusing and relateable to anyone with a sibling.
As we've come used to with the Avatar Comics, it ends in a twist. You do kinda see it coming with the stories set-up, but it ended at a perfect scene that makes you hungry for more!
The only complaint that I have is that I feel that Katara is a little out of character. She is usually extremely protective over Aang and tends to act as his more aggressive voice. We already know that her and Toph have had conflict in the best so I'm not sure why she just took such a backseat in this book. The reasonable answer, I assume, is she is two or three years older by this point and has matured, but she is still pretty young.
Anyway, definitely worth the buy if you've been reading the comics or just a fan of the series. If you are new to the comics, I highly suggest buying The Promise and The Search trilogies first.
He takes his Air Bending apprentices and his friends to a clifftop with a massive statue of a woman. This spot is where the festival traditionally begins. They start to go through the rituals but Aang can't remember who the statue is (it's clearly not Yangchen) or why they do certain things. He says, "That's just how it's done." This sets Earth Bender Toph off since she grew up in a sheltered home where her parents always told her "that's just how it's done" whenever she questioned anything. Aang and Toph almost start to fight. The group heads down the hill to a field where the feast used to be held. The field is now an industrial town where a coalition of Fire Benders and Earth Benders run a refinery. The local river is polluted though the industrialists say it's from natural causes, not the refinery. Aang sees the whole thing as a violation of sacred ground but Toph sees it as the future of harmony that they've been working for all along.
The story is an interesting look at the tension between doing things "the old way" and "the new way." This issue seems a little slanted towards the old but not very slanted. The situation could go in many different directions. Based on the previous graphic novels, it will be very interesting to find out what's really going on and how Aang and Toph will patch up their differences (plus there's a big surprise at the end of this issue).
Remember Avatar: The Last Airbender from Nickelodeon? I watched that thing religiously over and over again until the end and then again. Then came Legend of Korra which I'm loath to watch because I fear that it might tarnish my memory of Aang. What if I love Korra but Aang must surely be dead for her to live... So nope, even though I added it to my Hulu queue i will not be watching it for a long long while.
Avatar:The Last Airbender has changed quite a bit since before the beginning of Legend of Korra. I haven't realized how much until now.Strange thing, the Airbender clan still exists in drove but I haven't seen any signs of power though. The writers did note that there were people without bending skills. My concern was that Aang had air acolytes which i presume he teaches Airbending to. No sign of them performing on their own so far though, so Aang is still the last airbender. Phew... took me a while there, huh?
I love the panels and the drawing. It's just as it should be; just like watching the real thing. The panels are strong and help you go along with the flow and if you're reading it on a tablet, it's even better especially cuz you can scroll down with reasonable progression.
I loved this series and i am eagerly awaiting Part 2. When it ended i was like "Really though? It was just getting goood. Noooooo". Yeah. It's that good. This series focuses more on Toph, our resident bad (blind) girl! She is tough as nails as her name suggests and her bending skills really are magnificent. Aang could learn a thing or two from her. Yep. The Avatar could and is learning from Toph herself. In this series we get an indept look at Toph's past. It's exciting. We get to see why Toph is so independent and well...though. Just barely though. Sadly, I will have to wait till Part 2 to see what the heck is gonna happen. The horror. I hate to wait! Oh well ~~
Check out this magnificent beast if you love Toph and will like to see more badassery from her. Oh as well as sheer stubbornness!
