“For years, fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra have burned with one question—what happened to Fire Lord Zuko’s mother?
Finding a clue at last, Zuko enlists the aid of Team Avatar—and the most unlikely ally of all—to help uncover the biggest secret of his life.”
*Slams fists into table*
This comic made me want to curse in the best/worst kind of way.
I WANT TO KNOW.
I NEED TO KNOW
WHAT THE F HAPPENED TO HIS MOTHER?!?! WHY?!
There were some big events going down in Part one. Zuko is my FAVORITE Avatar character. Only closely outrunning Sokka. Reading this comic made my curiosity BURN. I miss these guys so much.
I’m so glad I get to experience more via the comics, but one day it will all be over. I really can’t think about it right now.
The art in this installment is GORGEOUS. Believe it or not, this is my first Avatar comic. I haven’t had the chance to read/buy the others. It’ll definitely be high on my 2016 priority list.
Anyway, I love Zuko’s story arc, which is without a doubt the most compelling character arc in the series.
What happens at the ending? NOT OKAY. NOT OKAY AT ALL.
It’s an exciting notion, but I love Zuko’s redemption arc, and if that ending is correct, BOOM.
That arc is blown to smithereens.
I hope Uncle Iroh knew what the F he was talking about in the animated series. I REALLY don’t want that letter to be true.
I’m REALLY hoping that Zuko’s mom was leading on Ozai, so she’d have an even greater means of escape.
Please, please, please let it be a fake-out.
Anyway, this comic was 100% enjoyable and now I CAN’T WAIT to read the rest. I’m so sad that The Search Part Two isn’t already in my hands. I spent all the moolah I had left at ALAAC2015 on Avatar comics. (two, actually, I could only afford two.) and Now I’m banging my head into any hard surface in the vicinity, purely because I should have definitely saved more money….for more comics. Obviously.
Because apparently I have no self-control when it comes to books/manga/comics. 😛
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to alternatively cry rivers over my bookshelf and my bank account.
Also, here’s a picture of me meeting Gene Luen Yang! He probably hears this all the time, but he’s SO TALL. I’m only 5’1 so I’m glad his friend volunteered to take the photo of us. I would have had a hard time getting us into the same frame with my shrimpy arms.
Unfortunately, his friend was almost as tall as he was, so I ended up looking kind of squished…and blurry. Ah well, it’s PROOF IT HAPPENED.
