My favourite part? The story itself. A lot happens between the end of The Last Airbender, and The Legend of Korra. Some of what happens, like the building of Republic city, is covered or mentioned in The Legend of Korra, but these books help to flesh out what happens between these two points a bit more, adding more backstory and history to the Avatar universe.
The art is great, as usual (Gurihiru, the same artist team that did "The Promise" and "The Search", also worked on "The Rift"), but in terms of plot, I felt like the story wrapped up a bit too quickly at the end.
So far, I've ranked the Avatar comics like this (from best to worst): The Search, The Promise, The Rift
This library edition is a nice hardcover, colour release, with some side notes from the creators and character design sketches at the end (basically, the same format as the previous "Avatar library editions")
I think that any Avatar fan will be pleased with this book
For anyone unfamiliar with the AtLA universe; the series, to me has always been surprisingly deep and symbolic - especially for an animated show. I felt taken aback at times during my initial viewing of the series as to the stirring moral undertones the writers tackle and the positive lessons you can draw from these characters' actions. Part 3 of The Promise series really brought out all of those aspects for me while staying exciting and fun! This was by far the most intense of the entire trilogy. It was filled with a sense of urgency and even a touch of destiny about what needs to be done to really restore peace to the world...WHILE staying true to oneself in the process.
Aang really kicked butt in this one, like he usually does when he gets down to business and makes stuff happen. You can tell the Avatar has been changed for the best by the trials he suffered in the past...but there is also still much confusion about his ties to the Avatar legacy. Zuko, who remains one of my favorite characters ever (and easily THE BEST transformation ever seen) was also really changed by everything he's lived through and the family he's had.Read more ›

Amazing read going in depth to the story and character development, speedy delivery, corner of binding was slightly dented in what I am assuming was from shipping. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Nickson Silva
