The Promise is a quick and entertaining read about Aang's adventures after the war was ended.
It's very nice to see all of the characters, and humor is great as usual.

Aang and Katara calling each other 'sweetie' gave me the oogies though.
Onto the next one. ( )

Category/genre: Young adult novel
notable: Graphic novel

Dante illustrates an imaginative and creative story through his writing as readers are emerged into a new world containing magical adventures. Aang is a young boy who has the power to defeat every nation, he is the last of his kind. Aang goes on a journey to defeat the evil enemy and describes the obstacles he faces in doing so. This book is great for readers who love the graphic novel style and are interested in reading an imaginative and creative story. ( )

This is the aftermath of the avatar's victory.

I'm like Toph when I read the word "Sweetie". It also gives me the oogies.

What the hell, Zuko? C'mon, You're being indecisive again. Not good. Not good. ( )

I think I need to rewatch the show now. This book had all the good jokes and banter. I liked the still drawings of bending, though nothing will beat the animations. The show ended on such a high note. These comics don't negate all the work that was done to defeat Fire Lord Ozai, but they do a good job of telling the post-war story. There are lots of loose ends to tie up. Also the story of how a bunch of teenagers can become real leaders, not just necessary default ones. Too bad about those oogies. ( )

Short mini-review.

Upsides: The comic is set post-series (which is AMAZING), the character dynamics made me squeal like the fangirl that I am, the artwork was really close to how it is in the tv show, the story is pretty much great, IT'S POST SERIES. :D

Downsides: It's really short, they did some ridiculously stupid things with the characterisation (I mean, ok, I didn't expect it to have the brilliant characterisation and character building that the show has, but reaaaaaallllyyyyyy, I'm side-eyeing the whole situation with Zuko. I don't really believe that that big of a character shift would happen in such a short time), IT'S REALLY TOO SHORT.
