That was fun! The book is a great successor to the animated series, at the level of best episodes. It takes many threads from ATLA to their closure and, at the same time, plants some seeds for TLoK.

The story's main theme is family and it works very well. We can explore relationships between siblings (Azula/Zuko vs Katara/Sokka), parents and their kids (Ozai vs Ursa), as well as romantic love (Ozai/Ursa vs Ikem/Ursa and Aang/Katara). It is written well and plays on the reader's emotions. I admire how this story gives a new context to ATLA and helps to better understand its characters.

The worldbuilding is great, authors use inspirations from many Asian cultures (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Hawaiian...), so all designs are very thoughtful. The art is very good - a pleasure to look at, even if you are not interested in the story (comments, artworks, and WIP sketches only make it better). However, when Azula appears she dominates the frames. The authors clearly had a thing for drawing the crazy Azula and it looks rad every single time.

The third act is a bit disappointing. The plot resolves and we get to the end, but nothing of it feels earned by our heroes. It's more the result of lucky coincidences than their actions and it seems rushed. When you combine this with some prior "deus ex" moments and rather a poor setup... it loses 0.5 stars for an adult audience, but I guess (pre-)teen fans of the animated series will be fully satisfied (5/5 for them).

The characters in this set of graphic novels were absolutely true to the show. It's a great continuation of a the story. ( )

Again, like the last book "The Promise", I think these comics are some of the best action adventure material ever written. It is always fun to see where the writers take these characters and seeing how different writers manage to keep every character consistent throughout the franchise is amazing. I think almost ever Avatar related is amazing and this is no exception. I'd recommend this to anyone. ( )

The search for a parent. A group of friends growing up. An epic sibling rivalry. Unexpected connections. Perhaps a little too neatly tied up in the end, but sometimes you need a story like that. And, as always, the art and writing are great. Maybe I really will research the series this summer ( )

This collection of comics based on Avatar: The Last Airbender follows on from the previous story, Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise. You don't necessarily have to read that one first, but I would definitely not try reading either of them if you haven't seen the series; it'll just spoil everything and not make any sense.

The Search's storyline finally resolves the single biggest dangling plot thread of the series: what happened to Zuko's mom? It's nice to get some closure on that, and the comic also gives us a lot of interesting backstory. (Although the one bit of backstory I was really eager to see -- the details of what actually happened the night Fire Lord Azulon died -- turned out to feel weirdly anti-climactic, after all the time I spent wondering about it.)

I must say that while this was good, and had some rather lovely moments, it didn't delight me nearly as much as The Promise. Part of that might be that it's a much simpler story. But I think it's also that this one features lots of Azula, and I'm just not thrilled about Azula's turn from psychopath to delusional psychotic. That's not really the comic's fault, though, as it's just following through on where the TV show went. (It's also something that nobody but me seems to be bothered by, so, hey.)

Still. There's some beautiful artwork here, and some nice thematic stuff about identity and family, as well as being a story that I think it's important to Zuko's character to tell.

The edition I have also features some commentary by writer Gene Luen Yang, artist Gurihiru, and series co-creator Michael DiMartino, who has a number interesting things to say about the development of the story. ( )
