Avatar Volume 1: The Last Airbender
Avatar Volume 1: The Last Airbender transports you to the South Pole, where a tribal village is doing its best to survive the harsh conditions. It has been a hundred years since the Fire Nation attacked, disrupting the peace that existed between the Water, Earth, Air, and Fire nations. At the same time, the Avatar also vanished, leaving the people desperate. For years, the other planets have been trying to fight Fire in vain. Katara and Sokka, her warrior brother, are out fishing in the sea when they catch a boy encased in an iceberg. Aang, the boy in the iceberg, is just twelve years old, and like other boys his age, he is carefree. However, it is clear that he is carrying a huge secret that he is keen to keep from his new-found friends.

Could Aang be the Avatar needed to bring an end to the war in the world? Well, Katara and Sokka have no idea that Aang could save them all. However, some individuals know that Aang is no ordinary boy, and it doesn’t take long for the water tribe to identify Aang as an Airbender and the Avatar. Prince Zuko, for example, is keen to capture Avatar. He knows that even if he kills Avatar, he will simply be reborn, so he has to devise ways to capture him and keep him alive. Aang, on the other hand, has to learn how to control Air, Earth, and Water and ensure that Fire doesn’t take over the other three nations. Will the young man accomplish this considering all the forces working against him?

This comic ties in with the cartoon series by the same name. The pictures are borrowed from the cartoon making this a perfect buy for any Avatar collector. This book is fun even for readers who have not watched the cartoon series. The author gives a detailed account of the four nations and the remarkable benders who made use of elemental magic and martial art to control their native elements. There is also adventure, and as Aang, Sokka, and Katara navigate the stormy seas, you will find yourself holding your breath. The dialogue between the characters will make you smile, and it is fun how the kids respond to the different challenges they encounter in their lives.

Avatar Volume 1: The Last Airbender is a perfect book if you are looking for a tangible token of the Avatar series. Even if you have not watched the series, this book provides a great summary. The plot is beautiful and timeless, and the coming of age story is nothing but outstanding. While the lines are easy given the target audience, they are also impactful. It is fun seeing Avatar grow, manage to bend the four elements and accomplish tasks he previously thought impossible.

The Legend of Korra
The Legend of Korra is a must-read if you are a fan of the Nickelodeon show by the same name. This book starts where the show ended. Korra and Asami have left the Republic City to visit the Spirit world. As they relish their feelings towards each other, these two girls are happy to escape the Republic City’s human/spirit conflicts and political hijinks characteristic. However, things in the Spirit World are not as smooth as they anticipated. A pompous developer is planning to build an amusement park on the new spiritual portal, which is sure to severe the connection with spirit. It doesn’t help that the triads have also realigned, and hundreds of evacuees have relocated to escape their brutality.

To overcome all these challenges, Korra and Asami vow to be there for each other. However, before this becomes possible, they first must learn how to work as a couple and a team. A good part of this book focuses on Korra and Asami at the start of their relationship. It is easy to understand their anxiety since theirs is no ordinary relationship. Both of them are just learning to be comfortable with each other and to be honest about their relationship with friends and family. Despite the initial challenges, it is amazing how healthy Korra and Asami’s relationship is. There are going to be kisses and deep conversations when these two wonderful characters realize that they are in love with each other.

This is a short graphic book characterized by beautiful art, intriguing characters, and an enjoyable storyline. It is exciting seeing an F /F relationship thriving with minimal, if any, drama from the lovebirds. Aside from the main characters, there are also other queer couples in the story making this a perfect read for young people who are unsure of what steps to take where their same-sex relationships are concerned. It is refreshing having an inclusive novel with a fun storyline and great characters that will stick in your mind long after you are done reading the story. There is something comforting about this book and its predecessor. Do not be surprised if it moves you to watch these classics once again.

Korra and Asami are forced to come home early to figure out ways of dealing with the greedy developer, and refugees created the last battle.
