    So fun! 4.5 stars for this books, because the plot was kind of a mess, but overall I really loved it. There some important controversial topics and I loved exploring those, and of course Team Avatar will always be amazing. It could have been done better, though, which is why it wasn't a full 5 stars.

    I loved the spiritual story and can tell that it's going to be a prominent problem in the comics moving forward. What I love about this world and story is that at times I think I know what's going to happen and what's right (the correct path Aang must take to preserve his morals while also molding a new world). But time and again I'm surprised by what happens, that Aang found a middle ground between protecting and preserving while also finding room to evolve. I love these writers.

    It took me a lot longer to get into this volume. The problem, for me, is that Toph is my least favorite member of Team Avatar. I still like her, a lot, but not nearly so much as the others. The story is still fairly solid, and the quality is as every bit as high as it has been in the other post-Avatar comics. I really do think that people who like Toph more than me will be more happy with this book, and people who love her best will probably love it.

    This is really Toph and Aang their story and how the world has been changing after the war has ended. While Aang wants to drastically hold onto the past and the people that he has lost, he wants to honor and embrace the ways of his culture. Toph on the other hand has a completely different view about everything and is convinced that Aang shouldn't be living according to ancient traditions since they haven't been practiced and honored in over a hundred years. Toph is someone who lives in the now. This is really Toph and Aang their story and how the world has been changing after the war has ended.

In The Rift we can see how the story and the future of the world will lead up into the The Legend of Korra storyline and how much the industries have progressed and how people of different cultures are living together. Aang will find out how important and difficult it is to find balance in this world.

    This one revolved in Toph and Aang's relationship. More answers are again answered especially on Toph's relationship with her father. I also have a working theory that Sokka is indeed not Toph's husband as speculated in LoK because a new character here really resembles one of her daughters. Idk about it yet since I only watched the first ep and only saw references online HAHAHAH.

    Another fun addition to this already amazing series. The Avatar tries to protect the world from an ancient spirit, that is linked to a Air Nomad fesitval. I liked this one better than the previous entry. I loved how the book dwells with the theme of change and its effect on lives. The book also serves as a great arc for Toph, and her fans are highly likely to love this one.

    While The Promise and The Search felt very relevant and closely tied to the tv series, this collection seemed a little more removed. The story is still fun and the characters are still dear. Its story just lacked the political significance of The Promise and the fan-based emotional import of The Search. I still love that these writers have continued the Avatar story, and it's still worth the read for a fan!

    The balance between nature and human development is a complex and nuance one. This volume attempts to tackle that subject and falls short on a resolution- but that might be the intention. I'm always amazed by how this series never hesitates from tackling tough subjects. We see true depictions of oppression and forced labor all throughout this volume and people point it out. Shining light on what a wrong is the first step. In this case, this volume shows forced labor and a cruel boss.

She has a clear point of view and it makes sense. Its interesting how she gets to how she is in LoK.

I was a little disappointed that Zuko wasn’t in here. I was really looking forward to having an expansion on the events in The Search, so this one left me a little disappointed. However, it was still so good. I really did like getting more development on Toph. So, Aang wants to celebrate an Airbending tradition. He and the gang (minus Zuko) travel to the Earth Kingdom only to find that a Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom factory has been built on the spot. Plus, all of the important places are either gone or/and been torn down. This, of course, starts a little bit of a struggle in Aang. Aang wants to hold onto the past and practice Airbending traditions, even though they haven’t been practiced in over a hundred years. We see him grow upset, which is understandable. He wants to hold onto the past and his people. He wants to embrace and honor his culture. All of this makes sense. People in general want to hold onto the old ways. Aang has lost everything when it comes to Airbending culture and to want to hold onto that just fits so well with his character. Toph, on the other hand, wants to live for the now. This causes a lot of tension between these two. She believes that Aang should just let it go since these traditions haven’t been practiced in so long. She is the opposite of Aang and it was only a matter of time before these two butted heads. I’ve always enjoyed Toph’s character and have her be this blunt just fight her so well. She also receives a lot of backlash because of her actions. However, it also shows the gang that it’s okay to be open to new things. I’m going to be honest now. This one felt more like a filler book than anything. I did enjoy it and it does fit well into the world. It just felt like we are building up for the next one. Anyway, I did enjoy it and can’t wait until the next one.

    This might be the strongest arc of the Avatar comics, yet. It might not have the repercussions of “The Search,” but it’s wrestles with its thematics in a rich and rewarding way. Seeing these characters forced to grapple with the pressure of progress and the need to respect the past, without being bound to either of them, is fantastic and feels very right for the world of Avatar, especially considering where that world ends up in the “Legend of Korra.” Some of the tensions introduced between chara This might be the strongest arc of the Avatar comics, yet.

Seeing these characters forced to grapple with the pressure of progress and the need to respect the past, without being bound to either of them, is fantastic and feels very right for the world of Avatar, especially considering where that world ends up in the “Legend of Korra.” Some of the tensions introduced between characters didn’t hit as hard as they wanted to, and resolved themselves too quickly to feel consequential. But those are side-effects of the broader story Gene Luen Yang is telling, and he tells that story really well. Some of his dialogue still feels stifled at times—something all of the Avatar comics have struggled with thus far—but for the most part the character’s voices are spot-on, and that’s arguably the most important thing these stories get right. It’s just nice to revisit these characters again, especially after just finishing a rewatch of the series. Also, I’d be a fool not to praise the art of Gurihiru. The work they do in these stories is just consistently excellent. They flawlessly capture the look of the show in every way, whether it’s a new outfit for a favorite character or a stunning realization of a brand new environment or a new character altogether, every page is a joy to look at. The motion they convey is great, and while the action doesn’t always pack as hard of a punch as I’d like, they deliver the goods where it counts the most and there’s not a single panel that doesn’t look amazing.

    Really happy to have Toph back. She rules at everything (and her dad is a sucky wet blanket who doesn't deserve a daughter this awesome, hmph). Otherwise, this was great but not epic. Basically another fairly obvious lesson it takes Aang absolutely sodding ages to learn. The art was amazing as ever, though! Really happy to have Toph back.

Order of Enjoyment: The Rift (#3) The Search (#2) The Promise (#1) Religion Avatar Yengchen appears to Aang, and he believes it's a sign to revive some Air Nomad holidays. I liked the dialogue between Toph and Aang about the merits of holding on to a religion and traditions from a different era. I generally agree with Toph that it's okay for cultures and societies to evolve. Just because something used to belong to a culture, doesn't mean we need to keep those practices on a pedestal in our world today. (view spoiler)[ Of course this particular tradition ends up being kind of important... (hide spoiler)] On the other hand, I really feel for Aang who wants so badly to connect and keep his culture alive, but only has tenuous remembrances of his childhood. It's a beautiful, worthy cause that he bears alone. Pride The rest of the Gaang criticize Toph as being insensitive for refusing to participate in Aang's recreation of the holiday. I understand her principles, but I also think it's okay to bend (haha bend...) your principles out of respect for your friends and to open yourself to new experiences. . The Environment When Aang heads to the sacred Air Nomad meadow, he finds a churning refinery in it's place. The argument of technological progress at the sacrifice of the environment was super well done - for the four nations to continue building peace, joint ventures like this need to become more common. Not to mention the crazy technological advances that the refinery is encouraging - Satoru has designed bending free engines and machines (they're not as efficient right now, but they're providing opportunities to non-benders). So basically this one company is making huge strides in both inter-nation harmony and technology - an objectively amazing thing. However, it's built on sacred ground and is unacceptably polluting the river. Like most things in ATLA, the answer is to find the balance between the world's needs (view spoiler)[ I thought that making all the pollution the result of the illegal iron mine kind of trivialized the issue. Yay, now they can rebuild without the environmental or moral impediments?? Would have been more interesting to have to contend with that pollution, but it is a <300 page comic book so I get it (hide spoiler)] Past vs Future Roku gave Aang some shitty advice in The Promise, and because of that (view spoiler)[ Aang cuts ties with him, which made it harder for him to access all the preceding Avatars. The reconciliation scene gave me major Zuko-Iroh vibes which I loved. (hide spoiler)] Again, it's all about balance. Aang can't disregard the lessons from the past, but he also can't let them rule his future. Satoru As an engineer maybe I'm biased, but I liked him a lot, and he's a cute fit for Toph. At one point she puts her hand on him to check if he's lying, which she's never needed to do before. You go Toph! Toph We got a little more background into how Toph evolved into the blunt, no-nonsense badass she is. No one is without flaws, but I thought she handled (view spoiler)[ her dad (hide spoiler)] well. I loved the scene where (view spoiler)[ she's holding up the roof of the cave and her dad apologizes, getting all emotional about possibly dying, and she's just like 'Sure, but I'm the greatest earthbender that ever lived, gtfo'. (hide spoiler)] -------------------------------------------- Even though Aang continues to be more hot-headed/mean and stubborn than he was in the show (so far the biggest faults of the books) this has been the most enjoyable (so far!). Which surprises me a little because Zuko isn't in it at all and him and his angst are usually my favourite. P.S WAIT ACTUAL BIGGEST FAULT OF THE BOOK - WHY DID THEY DRAW IROH LIKE THAT?? IROH DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THAT.

    I enjoyed this one more than The Promise or the Search. Glad that Toph worked things out with her dad and that Aang was able to fix things with Roku and the other Avatars. And does Toph and Satoru have some chemistry there? Oooooh.
