Trilogía terminada. Ya quiero conseguir la que sigue. Adoro esta historia, el mundo y a Aang.
No amount of words or clever gifs can describe the frustration I've had with this comic book continuation of one of my favorite shows: Avatar: The Last Airbender. I have never been one to believe that a show being geared towards older children (7+) should be above criticism and good writing. A:TLA had that in bundles and so it is disappointing to see that this mini-series did not continue that. The big problem is that it is handling a very complex issue in a very narrow viewpoint that is very ha ...more


La verdad que pensé en ponerle cuatro pero ese final lo cambió todo.

Fue el mejor tomo de los tres; todo fue demasiado intenso, pasaron muchas cosas memorables, me encantó todo!!!
Volver a ver al tío de Zuko con sus típicos chistes me dio cierta nostalgia. Los alumnos de Toph me dieron mucha risa (sobre todo El Oscuro) y Aang y Katara en éste no estuvieron igual que pesados que en los anteriores, sino que además, sus escenas presentaron varias reflexiones que luego sirvieron en la historia.

Review for all three parts under the cut.
(view spoiler)
The exciting conclusion to the "promise" graphic novel trilogy really makes good on its promise! Back in the beginning of this story arc, newly crowned Fire Lord Zuko made Aang promise he would "end him" if he lost touch with the good and started becoming his terrible father, but in consulting with his disgraced, imprisoned dad, he started to get confused about the sacrifices a Fire Lord needs to make and what constitutes the right stand for a leader to be making when faced with war. Now he cont ...more

I have no idea where to even start. I will say that it's good I'm not doing a video review for this because I would start rambling and never stop.

I know a lot of people haven't been too thrilled with The Promise from the beginning, and this (the last one of this storyline/arc/whatever) just made everyone hate it more I think. I wasn't very happy with it either. I appreciate what their trying to do with this story, but I don't think they pulled it off very well. The idea of exploring the "new" wo
Yep, that was good. Maybe really good. I particularly like the way you can see events here starting to lay foundation for the world you see in Legend of Korra, with the mixed cultures and metal bending, etc. Definitely checking out The Search and The Rift.
This was by far the best of the three. The comedy was right, the characters were right. It was just good. The only issue is that it did not take us all the way to Captial City. I know there is another series comming out now, so i hope it takes up to then.

This was really good, i just wish it had taken us up to present in the Avatar world. I can only assume i will be spending more money in the future. Part of a Master Plan? I believe so.

Wow! What a great conclusion to this series. It's always fun to go back into the Avatar world, and get to see moree of Team Avatar's adventures.

I love how the comic-books keep the same tone as the show did, and it's always fun to see how both humor and serious themes are blended in.

What I liked most was the realization of the change in the world, and how two nations can co-exist with each other. This diversity that is beginning to appear in the Avatar world is what I really like, and it shows t

Primero, vamos a hacer la fácil de repetir las virtudes que enumeré en la reseña del número anterior y que también se aplican a este:
¿Escenas humorísticas muy bien logradas? Hay.
¿Personajes queribles y creíbles? Hay.
¿Tensión política y social y dilemas éticos? Hay.
¿Dibujos expresivos y diseños logradísimos? Hay.
Falta la música y un par de detallitos más y esto casi pasa por un capítulo de la serie original. Y eso siempre es una buena noticia.

A eso sumémosle una resolución más que digna y coheren
I love everyone in this tea shop.
4.5 stars
This is the conclusion to the first in what will probably be several graphic novels that bridge the end of Avatar: The Last Airbender to Avatar: The Legend of Korra. While I enjoyed "Korra" for the most part I had some problems with the series in pacing and also some of the sloppy writing of new characters. I was immensely pleased to see Aang and company captured so very well in Gene Leung's adaptation.

In the last two books (which I had not reviewed here) we found team Avatar in the mi
The final part of this initial post-TV series story wraps things up nicely. The highest compliment I can pay it is that it feels like a good adaptation of a TV episode. Thanks to the participation of the show's creators, it carries the story forward and feels like it has substance, instead of just being a random, inconsequential adventure for Aang and his friends. I can hear the actors' voices saying the dialogue in my head, and the art really captures the look and feel of the animation, even wi ...more
Technically there are spoilers here, but if you've gone this far in the series, you should know what's going to happen in the last third.

Same as the last two volumes, I've arrived at Part 3 because I enjoy the world, story, and characters and the comic does a very nice job carrying on the legacy.

Here we have the final culmination of the Harmony Restoration Movement, Toph's Metalbenders start bending metal with Sokka's help and a revelation of Toph's, and Aang and Zuko have to face up to the Prom

Primero que nada. QUE BUEN FINAL.
AH Me sentí como en algùn final de temporada.
Este cierre fue excelente. El remarco de las conclusiones fue muy bueno.
Sobre todo porque sigo diciendo KORRA! Es excelente la mente de estos escritores.
Ya voy a continuar con los que sigue porque me siguen lkenando tanto como la serie y es una gran secuela.
Para los que tengan duda de comenzarlo a leer, NO LA TENGAN. Si son fans de la serie les va a gustar.
You cannot really separate the four nations, because in the end, everyone is the same. Everyone is part of a whole.

Like the first two parts, this was a quick read with my two boys. They paid perfect attention from start to finish, even though I'm sure they didn't remember all the references to the show or the political plot. As for me, I was shocked by a few turn of events (one of Aang's choice's in particular) but these never felt out of character. I'm a big Gene Luen Yang fan and he captures the humor and turmoil of the show very well. But we dove into these excited to learn more about Zuko's mother and I ...more
Aang has finally realized that he cant rely on the past t create a new future. With colonies intermixed with different nations a new type of lifestyle has emerged.

Zuko is on the hunt to find the truth about his mother with help from ..... Azula.

I cant wait to find out what really happened to their mother, anyone who has watched the show knows that thats one of the series greatest mysteries that has never been solved.
I am in love with the avatar world I hope they continue to write more comics so

Avatar Aang arrives at Yu Dao, the Fire Nation city on Earth Kingdom soil, before the armies of both countries make it there. He fails to convince the local Fire Nation people to leave. They claim that they are too fully integrated to go--this is their home. Then the Earth Kingdom army shows up to remove the Fire Nation descendants by force. Soon enough the Fire Nation troops arrive and things go from bad to worse. Katara convinces Aang to separate himself from the conflict so he can think clear ...more
This is a review of the set of three Promise graphic novels. The graphic novel continues with the young heroes having to make adult decisions and realizing that everything is not so cut and dry. Zuko, always full of conflict, is the first to admit the complexities of the situation, and turns to others for advice. The perspectives of the others from former Team Avatar of what Zuko is doing are understandable given their age, and Zuko did a horrible job explaining his position. He needs some commu ...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).

(This was definitely my favorite of the bunch because it addressed the major issue I had with the first two, so I'll talk about all of them here).

The plot itself was perfectly enjoyable and interesting. As a brief series it's definitely done the job of filling in the gaps between the original series and Korra. On that score, the series is approaching the plot in the sort of linear fashion that Korra has embraced (which I personally enjoy). It's hard to have the sort of rambling, albeit entertain
What started off as a promise to a friend turns into something greater than even the Avatar in the epic conclusion to The Promise. With the Earth King's blatant ignorance of the outside world coupled with the Fire Lord's insistence on doing what he thinks is right, the Fire Nation colony of Yu Dao is about the become the starting place for a new war if the two sides cannot come together and find a solution to fit both their needs, and the needs of their peoples.

Avatar Aang is stuck in the middl

A veces los sueños son la manera en que los espiritus revelan a una persona la respuesta a sus problemas.

Pues para ser la última parte estuvo bien. Ese final deja con ganas de leer ya lo que sigue, me encanto Azula, toda loca y esos dibujos fueron laskdjskla así. Muy buenos dibujos, un poco de comedia, drama, todo, muy buen fin para dar inicio al siguiente cómic que es La busqueda.

I decided to write a review for the whole trilogy with my review of this third volume. While each volume has a lot going on in it, they form one cohesive story with each other so that this is the most practical way to review them.

The story begins with a summary of the series Avatar: The Last Airbender, and comes to the moment immediately after the end of the series. Every one is at Uncle Iroh's tea shop celebrating, Aang and Katara kiss and form a relationship, so on. We see a peace treaty betwe

This is just like watching one of the episodes. Helps to set up what is seen in Legend of Korra
Hayley Stone
The art continues to be as beautiful as ever in this final chapter, and the story's conclusion was not only satisfying but full of as much heart as the show. If you enjoyed the Nickelodeon series, you should absolutely read these graphic novels. With that said, I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next A:tLA installment, The Search.

A great end to a well thought out story. So glad this exists! It didn't just answer my questions to what happened after the cartoon ended, it satisfied my need for the further adventures of the characters I love. Sometimes a comic continuation of a story will shift from the original and feel a little off, but this three-volume series never did.

While many readers will find only a fun story in The Promise, it's actually a fantastic introduction to post-colonialism for kids. Yang included so many r
Kind of felt like a rip-off. Part 3 was shorter than both parts 1 and 2, and there were no surprises in the plot since we knew how it had to be resolved, (because Legend of Korra has already aired). I still want to read The Search because I'm dying to know what happened to Ursa but they'd better not be so stingy with the story in that series...
Well that was better than I expected.

The romance wasn't so sappy, and I loved the political stuff going on. Everything was amped up, and I genuinely enjoyed this addition to the ALTA comics.

From all the controversy over the Harmonic Restoration Movement, there is now the start of a new war. People finally have to decided whether the fire nation people should be moved out of the fire nation colonies. I really liked the political aspect. There are pros and cons to each side. Although the comics
