This was honestly the best investment I made this month! The Last Airbender is one of my all time favourite shows. What? Yes, I’m an adult. Shut up, it’s not for children. Anyway, I recently watched the show for the third time and I was left craving more, so I got this and it hit just the spot. I spent one incredibly pleasant afternoon reading it.
The art was amazing. I don’t read comics and graphic novels much for some reason, but I’m always so impressed by the art. This was no exception. There were several different art styles, ranging from really ‘authentic’ looking art, where everything looked more or less like stills from the show, to little cartoony characters.
The stories ranged from short, silly stories that had very little to do with the main plot, to longer, deeper ones that told us a thing or two about the internal struggles of the characters throughout the show, perhaps a little bit more in depth than the show had time to explore. But mostly, they were just hilarious.
Tiny, baby cartoon Zuko being used as a ball was just everything. This was the last ‘extra’ story in the book and I just died.
This is probably my shortest review ever, but there isn’t much more that I can say about it other than that it was great. If you’re a fan of the show, it’s definitely worth getting these, as they do fill in some details of what happened throughout the three seasons. I’m really looking forward to getting the continuation comics and reading them.
