    Faith Erin Hicks does a wonderful job continuing the series. The art looks like the next season you haven't watched yet. If you're a fan of the cartoon, you'll dig this. Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    First off I want to say that I still think that the illustrations are absolutely breathtaking, even though the art style has changed. It still has that same familiar feel to it, one that I love to return to. I have read all of the Avatar related graphic novels that have been released so far and I honestly cannot remember how many of them that have been.

That's why I'm going to continue reading every new graphic novel that will be released, just like I did with this one. It's just that after having read that many of them the plot of them doesn't exactly surprise me anymore. It's very easy for me to pinpoint what's going to happen very early on. That doesn't mean that I don't enjoy reading them. In fact I love to find out about this world, the nations and all of its citizens as I possibly can and to see how much the world is developing after the war has ended. Technology is making huge progress. But of course with each development chaos is not far away, as we all know by now. ↠ 3,25 stars Imbalance, Part One ★★★ Imbalance, Part Two To be released

    I feel like we keep seeing this same pattern of events happen in all of them mini comics, but it was a nice lead into some of the main conflicts we see in the Legend of Korea series. Also I’m seeing a ton of hate on the new art style, but I honestly kinda like it.

    *I received this book as an eARC from Dark Horse Books in exchange for an honest review* I love that the world of the Avatar has continued via comic. This is the first part of the newest story of Aang and his friends. The bender vs non-bender conflict appears in this graphic novel. Toph's father's company's city is booming. It's a city full of industry. It has the vibes of Republic City from The Legend of Korra. One of the topics of this story is how progress can leave some individuals behind.

Main Plot: Team Avatar goes to visit Toph's Father in Cranefish Town ( Soon to be Republic City), which was Fire Nation territory until the war ended. Which the town had boomed with rapid growth. Upon Toph's Fathers request he asked Aang to stay for guidance in a government less and criminal stricken town. With also non-benders being suppressed. Many non-benders feeling unsafe to walk home due to benders targeting them to loot them. A huge battle between Firebenders and Earthbenders in the middle of a heavily populated pocket of the town. The non-bending citizens get caught in the crossfires and their homes are destroyed. Aang and Toph offer to rebuild the crumbled homes. But the non-benders refuse help from benders since it is was caused their homes to crumble. All while this is going on the benders who started the battle had disappeared. So the group of Aang, Katara, Toph and Sokka disband to go to the council meeting and factory respectfully. Aang and Sokka come to the divided council with non-benders and benders sitting on opposite sides of the room. Lao (Toph's Father) proposes that he will ban bending on the streets to keep crime down. Which causes an argument among the council both sides of the council speaking of their concerns. But they come to a solution that they will create a police force of benders to keep the non-benders safe and to stop crime. One of the council members proposed that they could use her private security team (which is a bad idea, but I am getting ahead of myself). But all is agreed. Toph and Katara go to Lao's factory which Toph owns a share of. Even the factory underwent some huge changes, no benders worked in the facility anymore. Also the hired guards out front were non-benders. There is a huge demand for refined metal now because of the rapid growth in the city. In the middle of the night, the factory is compromised. Toph and Aang hunt down the two people who caused the explosion. We then soon find out that the coucil member who offered her security team to become the police force was behind the attack on the factory. She also seems to have plans to take over Cranefish Town. Side stories: Sokka is complaining he hasn't been able to see Suki. Sokka finds an awesome water tribe helmet that he wants to buy. With all the turmoil going on Aang takes Katara to an unpopulated island (which is building to become air temple island). I loved how this comic is becoming the bridge to both of my beloved TV series. This is definitely a must read if you are a huge fan of this series.

    I'm going to get this out of the way now: I am so distracted by how much Aang has grown up. In a good way! But in every other panel Aang is in, the first thing I think is, "Damn, this kid is growing up so fast *proudtear*" New A:TLA sequel story, this time focusing on the bender vs. non-bender conflict we see prominent in the first season of Legend of Korra. Some things are predictable; like this new villain, 100% called it the instant she showed up in her first panel.

Some things are predictable; like this new villain, 100% called it the instant she showed up in her first panel. And I know how the police force is going to go down in future installments just based on the themes being explored in this new story and, sadly, how it relates to the real world. We're back to the themes relating to progress, but this time how developing technology and an industrial revolution can put people out of work, and how the displaced workers, their skills no longer needed and with no other ways to survive, resort to criminal activities. So in the spirit of the A:TLA graphic novels, I'm prepared and excited for another trilogy of an extremely nuanced argument. Is it March yet? (view spoiler)[(Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but is Cranefish Town going to be the future Republic City? I thought it was going to be Yu Dao, but the geographical features here are way more familiar to Republic City than Yu Dao's. Either way... looks like we're seeing the makings of the council that Sokka will become of (and looks like the council he's going to play a big role in shaping) and the police force that Toph will run! YASSS.) (hide spoiler)]

    This was better than I expected. Or maybe my standards for the Avatar comics have gotten really low since the North and South trilogy (which was terrible). Anyway, I was sceptical of how bender vs. non-bender hostility would be developed in this story – especially as considering that there was never any such hostility seen in the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender (which made season 1 of The Legend of Korra all the more absurd), and the hostilities in the immediate aftermath of the 100-Year War This was better than I expected.

But Imbalance Part 1 did a good job of developing bender vs. non-bender hostility organically, while making it clear that the nation-based hostilities have far from vanished. It also does a good job of tying the new divide to technological changes, which makes for a logical step towards the world of The Legend of Korra. And we see the beginnings of Republic City – cool! On the negative front – the story is still far from subtle, and like several of the Avatar comics, has an apparent ‘well-intentioned extremist’ as its villain (view spoiler)[(the quotation marks denote my scepticism about Liling’s intentions – my guess is that she’ll have turned into a moustache-twirling villain by the third part) (hide spoiler)] . It feels very been-there-done-that. As seems to be the norm among these comics, Katara is turned into Aang’s supportive girlfriend with no story, ideas or agency of her own. It's a really annoying sidelining of a character who was the most active one on the show. Nonetheless, I’m cautiously optimistic about the rest of this story. Faith Erin Hicks seems to be a better writer than Gene Yuen Lang. At the very least, she has toned down Toph’s abrasiveness – Toph was seriously edging into insufferable territory in the previous comics. (I just hope she manages to keep Toph’s metal-bending students out of the story – they are utterly tiresome, one-note characters.) While I preferred the art style of the previous comics, the new artist is not bad either. Bring on Imbalance Part 2! (Well, not until April.)

    Imbalance (Part One) is the latest instalment of Avatar: The Last Airbender comics. Reading it feels familiar - it mirrors a lot of what is happening in our present world. Much of the book is devoted to the theme of unfettered and unconscious progress. It examines how such "progress" tends to leave the poorest behind while the wealthy take undue advantage to accumulate more. For Avatar fans, it is important to note that Imbalance events occur way before any of the four main characters (Aang, Kata Imbalance (Part One) is the latest instalment of Avatar: The Last Airbender comics.

For Avatar fans, it is important to note that Imbalance events occur way before any of the four main characters (Aang, Katara, Toph, and Sokka) had children. It focuses on the technological and economic advancement that came after the war. As usual in an Avatar series, this story has the four companions helping folks, solving complex problems, and busting skulls.

    Solid 4 stars. What better way than to end the year with some Avatar: The Last Airbender? This is a first part, so nothing too important happens and it is short... But the characters are amazing as always, the world is still the inspired world I grew up with, the art is gorgeous, so not much to complain really. And the antagonists have a lot of potential, I was surprised. Can't wait to read the rest of the arc and the comics before this one. Need to catch up.

    Thank you to Dark Horse Comics, Random House, and Edelweiss for the e-arc in exchange for an honest review Another wonderful continuation of one of my most beloved series/franchises (and with each new trilogy, it gets closer and closer to completing the bridge between Last Airbender and Legend of Korra. The illustrations - and the colouring, in particular - were beautiful. A must-have addition for any ATLA fan.

    In March 2019? Oh my, I am not that patient. I should have waited first and then read. Overall, it is a nice spin and a nice new chapter with promising evil plans, Toph being sweet and Sokka trying to came up with new names. Zuko and Suki are welcome to show up in the sequel if it ever reaches me.

    This picks up after the events of the TV series. The characters had the same feel of the show and it was interesting to see the avatar and friends deal with problems after the war is over. The art style was colorful and the shading and shadows were very pretty.

    I really liked the art style of this one and it was rather nice to see a bridge start to form between the Last Airbender and Legend Of Korra. Toph in particular is always fun.
