My siblings and I always watch Avatar: The Last Airbender every Saturday when I was in high school. I admit that I love Aang and the gang, and their reckless journey to study all four elements to defeat the Fire country. Because of some television issue at the present, I don't have the chance to watch Aang and the gang again. Sad to say, I miss most of their adventures already and I don't have any idea what I read inside of this book.

At last, this collection of out-of-print, fan favorite comics

On average, actually pretty good. The best thing about all these stories, I think, is just how much they feel like they belong with the cartoon. The short stories could be scenes from a "real" episode, and the longer stories feel like they could be episodes themselves. There's a little variety in the art, but the quality is pretty consistent. And a few of the stories actually flesh out some aspects of the show. There's nothing really ground breaking, but I think most Avatar fans will be pleased.

I don't mince words when I say that Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of my favorite animated shows in any consideration, and I know many people, younger and older than myself, who love the series as well.

"The Lost Adventures" compiles some of the original Nickelodeon comic shorts from their magazines, plus some rare miscellaneous stories and fan-related creations in the mix. A wide selection of artists and writers, some of whom worked on the original series, combined their efforts to form this

This was so much fun!
I would go as far as to say that Avatar was one of my (if not the) favourite tv show(s) growing up. I spend a lot of time pretending to waterbend and fighting the fire nation when I was in elementary school - huh, the good old times.

This comic was an amazing, fast read! I love Avatar's humour and especially - it's characters and the artwork.
This is a collection of many different short stories surrounding Aang and Co, written and animated by different artists. Alas, I liked

I... am not all that impressed. This collection of stories is definitely cute, don't get me wrong, but it adds very little. There were a couple stand-outs - 'Relics' and 'Combustion Man on a Train' (despite the latter's ridiculous title) added nicely to Aang's character in little ways. Mostly, though, these read like brief vignettes and don't contribute that much to the overall story of the show - which is good, I suppose, since it prevents the show from feeling like there were plot holes.

This collection, subtitled The Lost Adventures, will be popular with hardcore fans, probably teenagers more than anyone else. I realize many adults, or at least adults who are young at heart, are fans of the series. I count myself among them but I am not as fond of this collection as I am of the animated series. Each of the stories take place in between the episodes, so there was a great deal of downtime and none of the youthful drama which is the main reason why I enjoyed the series so much. So ...more

A must have for fans of the much-loved animation series. As a huge fan myself, I simply adored every single page. The attention to detail, both visual and contextual, is just amazing.

The cover gives off an almost "fancomic" aura about it, so I was pleasantly surprised to see how "official" it all seemed, and that many of the comics were written by people who worked on the show.

This fun-packed volume really helps to fill the void of the end of the series, as well as the less than stellar Shyamal

Me encantó de principio a fin, los dibujos son increíbles, y las historias cortas que complementan la saga original me hicieron reír mucho, sentía en cada página el movimiento, la voz y las expresiones de los personajes justo como cuando veía la serie; simplemente mirando los dibujos. Súper recomendado si te gustó la serie Avatar, es importante recalcar que para poder leer este libro debiste haber visto primero la serie para poder comprenderlo :)

LOVED IT!

After Korra's finale I just needed to read this to remember how awesome Aang's gang was. This book is a very good reminder of why I loved Avatar in the first place. It's funny and positive in every way. And as much as I love Korra's episodes (last two seasons to be honest), Team Avatar #1 is still the best way to put a smile on way face.

Excellent job, Mr. Konietzko! I'm gonna really miss this universe.

Oh this is precious. Reading this was like blasting through a bunch of bonus episodes—the tone is spot on, and it felt like a bit like getting a great hug from a friend you haven't seen in a long time. Watching The Legend of Korra has made me nostalgic for the old Gaang, and this felt like a great visit.

Tons of short stories about the GaAng, so many that it gets a bit old. In the end it's an enjoyable book though and if you liked the TV show then you'll like this. A lot of short stories actually add context to situations that were in the show which was cool. Just like it's television counterpart this what at times funny and at times emotional. Except for maybe for 3-5 out of the 20 or so stories in this book, this book was worth reading at least once. The stories are good enough for one read th ...more

The main problem I had was that I was expecting a long story instead a bunch of short stories. Mind me, they were good: funny and adorable but due to its lenght, it is imposible to go deeper into any of the characters (though if you are reading this, it is probably because you miss Avatar: The Last Airbender series) but anyway it isn't what I was looking for.

To sum up: cute and funny short stories, but nothing that made me feel I needed to read.

I've previously read another graphic novel from Avatar which was supposed to be the original story, but it was actually based on the movie which was not good at all. Plus, it had the characters appearance changed so when i got this one from NetGalley, i had my doubts of what i will see.


As it seems, this one is created of some of the original creators of the series and some others new ones. It has 4 parts (Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, Bonus Stories) with each one of them includes short stories of 5 (m

I picked this selection because my son is huge Avatar fan. I've watched some of the cartoon episodes and the movie with him but I can't say I have followed it well. I can't think of anytime I have read an Avatar book either.
Knowing that, I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic novel. This is a collection of stories that have not been previously published. They touch on parts of the Avatar story but do not tell it.
I will say it helps to have some background knowledge of the characters and the world of

For anyone who doesn't know, Avatar: The Last Airbender was a show about a boy named Aang and his friends, Katara, Sokka, and Toph. They three nations (Air has been wiped out): Fire, Earth, and Water. The Fire Nation had taken over and was waging a war for domination over the other three nations. Aang is the avatar, the one who is meant to master all four elements and keep peace in the world.

In The Lost Adventures, we get quite a few fun tales about their adventures outside of what the show was

Are you a fan of the animated "Avatar: the Last Airbender" (not the movie)? If you are then this book is for you. Aang and the gang return for a series of 26 short comics, some of which have never been published before. The book is dived into three sections to match the TV show--water, earth, and fire.

If you're looking for full length feature episodes in comic format then you'll be disappointed. If you're looking, however for stories that flesh out what went on in betwe

Anthology collections and I are always a boring type of review, because invariably there are some good stories and some bad ones which even out to a pretty decent experience with some bad bits thrown in. This is probably the strongest anthology I've read so far, with all of these tales capturing both the hilarity and the serious edge that the world of Avatar built up over 3 seasons. Even the silliest little tale is a worthwhile investment and creates a new bond between our characters. Some of th ...more

So this year I haven't read everything I've wanted to due to health whatevers. I replaced the usual sustained reading with something I could actually do: binge watching! Still feeding the narrative hunger just in the form of entertaining television. "Avatar: The Last Airbender" (and the sequel series "Korra" which I'm currently watching) are filled with great characters and story and this particular book collects the odds and ends of smaller comic book stories that were printed during the show's ...more

I am a huge fan of this series that aired on Nickelodeon for three seasons. The series takes place in a universe inhabited by four primary cultures tied to the four basic elements (fire, water, air, and earth). In this universe, certain people are gifted with the ability to “bend” their culture’s element; that is, they can manipulate the element in order to attack, defend, move, heal, etc. (e.g. earthbending might be used to cause the dirt at your feet to form a giant shield in front of you).

Recommended to Innastholiel by: It’s A:TLA. Come on.
I did rate the individual stories, but I didn’t calculate the average, because this is A:TLA we’re talking about, and that’s kind of an automatic five stars for me. If you’re looking for a sort of extension of the original TV show, then The Lost Adventures is definitely the way to go. It mostly focuses on the more care-free moments of the show, but there are a few serious ones in there, too.
Honestly, if all comic books/graphic novels/whatever were this enjoyable, I’d read them more often. The Lo

This graphic novel is a nice treat for all of the Avatar fans who miss the original timeline of Team Avatar's adventures! While I did enjoy reading these extra stories, I have to admit that they were not as good as the original show (not that I necessarily expected them to be), but I was surprised by the lack of quality in comparison to the insanely creative TV show.

Some of the comic art is really badly done - the creators collaborated with a bunch of different artists and writers, but the stor

It is rather hard to accurately rate this book, simply because it is comprised of many different stories from various writers, artists, and conceptualists. Some stories are quaint, bright, and fun, while others are detailed, moving, and serious; yet others are informative or, in truth, quite odd. Still, when looked at as a whole, the rating must be middle-of-the-road for me, as there were many stories on both ends of the quality spectrum. My favorite ones showed me some element missing from the ...more

This collection of extra short stories that take place throughout the original Avatar: The Last Airbender series is a bit lackluster. Most of the stories don't add much of anything, in my opinion. There were a few good ones that I really enjoyed reading but, for the most part, I wouldn't consider them worthy of a re-read.

My first ATLA graphic novel! Whoo! :D

This one was super good! I loved getting to see some of the stories that occurred before/during/after the tv show. I liked that so many different writers and artists collaborated on this as well. It was neat getting to see and read how each of the contributors interpreted the characters, in both art style and the way they were written. I did find some of the portrayals a little off though, and some of the stories were repetitive of both the original show's st
