I have read my first graphic novel, and surprise!–it was from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
(just kidding no one is surprised at all.)
I loved reading this. I was worried that it would be boring or that it wouldn’t flow right, either because I’m used to experiencing Avatar as a television show or because I’ve never read any comics before in my life, but none of that was the case. It went by so quickly, the artwork was gorgeous, and the characters and story captured the magic that is in the show. I couldn’t have been happier with it.
So, The Search. This takes place after The Promise, or roughly two years after the last episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
And it focuses on Zuko, Azula, Katara, and Sokka finding out what happened to Zuko’s mother, Ursa
And I love the way that the graphic novel tied in so many things from the show, like how we find out that Ursa had been a part of “Love Amongst the Dragons” when she was younger.
I wanted to make a list of my favorite parts of the graphic novel, but they will contain spoilers, so be aware!
Overall, a solid four stars. I was really impressed by this, but there were just a few parts that I think could have been improved or abbreviated. Overall, though, it was great. No major complaints.
