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.

Really great to see the whole gang back together and see how things came to be at the stage we are seeing on The Legend of Korra now. ( )

So I was worried this wouldn't hold up to the show, because I loved the show so much. But it held up well! It's that wonderful mix of srs business and shenanigans that made me adore the cartoon, with some interesting plot developments.

I really can't wait for the next one. ( )

The "sweetie" part was a bit much. You don't need to shove Kataang down our throats, k thx.

Everything else was good, though. :P Like reading an abbreviated version of the show. I can't wait to get my hands on the second installment. Then I'll probably be whining for the third. ( )
