    I LOVE THIS SO MUCH, I CAN LITERALLY SCREAM ABOUT THIS FOR ETERNITY. This book literally picks up right after the show ends (I was wrong about the other comic) and it's fucking intense as hell. Full review to come because I'm too busy binging the rest of the books in this series and that ending was fucking INSANE.

    After reading:Oh ... whoops, I still need to review this. Heh heh.Before reading:Well OF COURSE I WILL READ THIS. I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AND STUFF.So yeah, for those of you who don't know, there are going to be these two graphic novels which basically fill in the gaps between The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra (which comes out ... who knows when, but sometime next year). So like, hopefully stuff will be explained. And yeah. I'm so tired I can't even think right now. But YAAAY I'M EXCITED. It still won't be the same as having the TV show, and I'll still be drooling like a rabid dog waiting for TLOK, but OH WELL it's better than nothing. Or than watching the original series fifty billion times.(JK, actually ... watching the original series fifty billion times is awesome. It never gets old.)ANYWAY, I read a leak from this book via Tumblr. (Sorry, I had a link but it doesn't work anymore ... It was probably taken down.)So yeah, I'm not really sure if I'm excited or pissed off. I guess it depends on how everything turns out. Basically, these are the spoilers as revealed by the leak: (view spoiler)[- Characters like Roku, Mai, Suki and the Kyoshi Warriors, Ty Lee, and the Freedom Fighters will be making an appearanceYAY. BRIGID HAPPY.- Zuko asks Aang to “end him” should he ever get out of hand like his fatherKind of clichéd, but .... *sighs* still very Zuko-like. Also if Aang kills Zuko, that would be, well, kind of stupid.- Roku agrees that Aang’s responsibility to the world is greater than his friendshipWow, Roku. You're a nice guy.- Yes…Aang and Katara refer to each other as “sweetie”.OKAYYYYYY. I ... just .... I don't even know what to say. If you read the excerpt, you'll see what I mean. Look, I'm a total Kataang supporter, but really, it's a little too much. Or maybe way too much. It's kind of overkill. Like, alright, I get that they're an item now, but the whole "sweetie" thing just feels uncharacteristic of both of them. It really weirds me out.- The colonies are indeed in a state of unrest, and there have been riots agains the peace movementWoohoooo. MORE VIOLENCE.- ZUKO RECLAIMS CROWN AS MASTER OF BAD DECISIONS AND GOES TO HIS FATHER FOR HELP IN THE LAST STINKIN PANEL.Oh, Zuko. You never learn ANYTHING, do you?! (hide spoiler)]Well, that's all I've got to say right now. And thus ends my nerdy little rant.

    If you're a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender, I recommend checking out this graphic novel!Why You Should Read The Promise:• The comic is set just after the end of ATLA, so this is the perfect book to read if the ending of the series left you wanting more!• The artwork is stunning, it feels like watching an ATLA episode!• Toph is a badass as usual• Zuko is the Fire Lord™️• And the promise is quite intriguing too.Buddy read with my brother Siamak

    I was hoping that by reading this it would rid me of some of my frustrations about the horrible disappointment that is The Legend of Korra, but all this book managed to do was make me mad about how it is handling of certain things.Let's begin.First of all colonization: Initially, the plan was to remove the fire nation citizens from the stolen Earth Kingdom lands, but Zuko basically allows himself to be bullied into changing his mind. The FN people living there are all like “we’ve lived there for generations.” Yeah, well you stole those lands from the Earth Kingdom in a war you just lost, so maybe you should get the hell out. You do not belong there. Have you forgotten that you're Fire Lord tried to burn the rest of the Earth Kingdom to the ground. I get we are supposed to feel bad for them because "they did nothing wrong" but they are reaping the benefits of Fire Nation oppression against the Earth Kingdom! They were put there as colonies to start integrating the Fire Nation and erasing the Earth Kingdom. It's ethnic warfare 101 and I'm expected to pity that? Seriously? Then, we get Zuko who is allowing himself to turn into the person her was in early Book 3. A spineless puppy who needs approval. So because you don't have everyone on your back, you back out. Yes, you have responsibilities to your people, but you also have to acknowledge the fact that you and your nation severely messed up. Plus, he goes to seek advice (view spoiler)[from Ozai (hide spoiler)]of all people! Like where is Iroh? Did he not come how with you? Or how about you talk to your girlfriend? Something? Ugh.Finally, Kataang. After the horrible shipping in LoK I have come to appreciate these two because at least there was a basis for their relationship, but even know it just doesn't click for me. Katara seems more like a protective mother figure to him than a girl-friend/future wife. Seeing them call each other sweetie was cute, though, although for a moment I wondered if they remembered each other's names. Overall, this left me frustrated and wanting to kick Zuko in the head. Hard.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Introduction: Now, I am a huge fan of the “Avatar: The Last Airbender” TV series and when I heard that there was going to be a comic book series that would continue from where the TV series last ended, I was so excited that I had to pick up this series! “Avatar the Last Airbender: The Promise Part One” continues from where the TV series ended its run and I have to admit that this was a brilliant continuation of the world-acclaimed TV series!What is this story about? After the events of “Avatar the Last Airbender” where Aang finally defeats Fire Lord Ozai and brings peace to the world, Aang along with the new Fire Lord, Prince Zuko, try to bring peace to the world by establishing the Harmony Restoration Movement. Unfortunately, when Zuko goes to visit the Earth Nation, he realizes that there are still tensions from the Fire Nation’s takeover and this might put his friendship with Aang to the test. What’s even worse is that before all this, Zuko asked Aang to kill him if he starts acting like his father and Aang is unsure of doing this, since he is a peaceful person who does not like to kill anyone. Will Aang go through with his promise to kill Zuko if he starts acting like his father?Read this volume to find out!What I loved about this story: Gene Luen Yang’s writing: I never would have thought that I see the day that there would be a comic book adaptation of “Avatar the Last Airbender” and manages to stick faithfully to the spirit of the TV series (unlike a certain movie adaptation of the TV series). Gene Luen Yang’s writing is both intense and hilarious at the same time and it brilliantly captures the spirit of the TV series! I loved the way that Gene Luen Yang wrote each character as they remain faithful to their TV counterparts, such as Sokka still being the comic relief of the group, Aang still retaining his peaceful and child like nature and Zuko still being the troubled son of the former Fire Lord. I loved the way that Gene Luen Yang added more character development to Zuko’s character as now we are seeing that Zuko is worried about becoming just like his father and is also trying to handle the duties of being the new Fire Lord. It really added so much drama and tension to Zuko’s character as we find ourselves wondering whether or not Zuko will become like his father and how he would handle the duties of being the Fire Lord without resorting to the same tyrannical tendencies of his father. I also loved the way that Gene Luen Yang made the stories flow so well with the events that happened in the TV series as it felt like I was watching another episode of “Avatar the Last Airbender” (or in this case, the fourth season that never came) and it makes me feel so delighted to see more development from each of these characters!Gurihiru’s artwork: Gurihiru’s artwork brilliantly captured the designs of the characters from the TV series such as Katara still having her long brown hair and large blue eyes and Aang still having his large blue and innocent eyes, while his bald head still contains the famous blue arrow tattooed on his head. I also loved the way that Gurihiru drew the characters’ clothing and the world they live in as it brilliantly reflects the culture of Asia, making the world truly exotic!Final Thoughts: Overall, “Avatar the Last Airbender: The Promise Part One” is a brilliant volume that superbly reenact the world-acclaim TV series and I am definitely looking forward to reading the second part of this series pretty soon!

    Original post at One More PageI never really go to the graphic novels section of NetGalley, but anything Avatar: The Last Airbender related is an automatic pick for me. I loved the series, so reading this was a definite treat.The graphic novel picks up immediately where the series ended (spoiler warning if you haven't watched the entire series yet), where Aang and Zuko and the rest of the gang were working on bringing back peace in the world. One of the things they were planning to do was to return the Earth Nation land that the Fire Nation invaded back to its rightful owners, but trouble looms when resistance comes. Zuko experiences a personal crisis and asks Aang to promise something...something that Aang wasn't sure if he can really fulfill. But a promise is a promise, right?What. Fun. I loved this graphic novel, and it brought back fond memories of the series I loved. I love that it picked up where it left off, providing excellent continuity. I love that everyone was there too, and honestly, I could imagine the graphic novel all animated and their voices still rang in my head (Dante Basco!). The funny and serious parts were pretty balanced, and the "oogie" moments were hilarious.It's also quite apt that I read this a few weeks before I got to watch the first few episodes of Legend of Korra. If you're a fan of the series, you really shouldn't miss this. The only thing I wish is that it was longer, or, that I have part 2 with me already! And part 3! Please, NetGalley, please have it in your catalog? :)

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.

    Estoy entre un 3.75 o un 4 directo (por lo corto que es) pero las estrellas que le doy son las mismas, así que poco importa.La promesa es una trilogía que se desarrolla una vez terminada la guerra de 100 años, en un mundo que aún está tratando de construirse, y tiene como protagonistas a Aang, sus amigos, y principalmente a Zuko. Su nombre se debe a una petición que le hace Zuko a Aang al principio de este tomo y esa "promesa" es lo que lo llevará a un conflicto interior sobre qué hacer si lo que te pide un amigo te es imposible de hacer, por más leal que seas, puesto que te duele o no te creés capaz de hacerlo.Es corto, obvio, y se lee nada; tiene sus partes graciosas y bobas (como todo capítulo de Avatar en la serie) y tiene sus reencuentros con personajes que había olvidado. Vi la serie de chica mil veces y hace algunos años volví a verla toda completa, por lo que sí, me considero bastante fan. Sólo hace poco sube de la existencia de estos cómics, y como estoy ahora mismo aburrida en mi pieza, de vacaciones, sin ganas de dormir, me propuse leerla (puesto que encontré todas sus partes en una página para leer cómics online) y acá estoy, volviendo a mi infancia, leyendo sobre cosas que en algún momento me volvían loca, y sonriendo de ternura y nostalgia como una loca.Me sentí volver en el tiempo a ver a Aang charlando y pidiendo consejo al Avatar Roku; me volvió loca y me confundió un poco el ver tan "cariñosos" a Katara y Aang, aunque me dio mucha risa. Y me alegró, obviamente, leer sobre chistes de Sokka después de tanto tiempo sin ver la serie. En fin, fue un lindo reencuentro con mi infancia, y puesto que nunca tuve tiempo de ver Korra (aunque quiero), fue también una forma de volver a conectar con algo que en su momento amé tanto, y además, tener contacto con algo nuevo de la historia que nunca había visto/leído.Muy recomendable. En un rato o mañana sigo con la segunda parte.

    The great thing about this book is also the worst thing about this book. The characterization. Sokka's quips about 'oogies' and general obnoxious-ness are perfectly in character. Toph's rather rude nicknames for her students are perfectly Toph. Even Ty Lee's facial expressions (in the two panels she appears in) are perfect, and somehow Aang and Katara calling each other 'sweetie' seems like exactly the thing they would do. But Aang's agreement with Zuko (a major plot point) is so out of character that it ruined the book for me. If Aang refused to kill Ozai, an evil, evil man who had caused so much destruction and pain and death, then he would never even consider killing one of his friends, no matter how evil that friend became. *spoiler alert* Zuko going to his father for advice at the end of the book was also glaringly out of character. I know that his character struggled with doing the right thing throughout the series, and I know that he often relapsed into being the bad guy, but by the end of the TV series, he had gotten past that, and to send him to Ozai for advice instead of Uncle Iroh cheapens his character development. Overall, The Promise is a fun, quick read, but if you're as attached to the characters as I am, it'll probably be a disappointment to you.

    AFTER RELEASEWHY WAS THAT SO SHORT?!Also, the art style is wierd, I hope they change it.My main concern when I started reading this was that it wouldn't feel like an Avatar experience. But the author did a great job at capturing the essence of the show. Also, I ship Kataang. I was happy to see more of them together. HOWEVER, sweetie. That's all.Must have for any Avatar fan, and I'm extremely angry I have to wait until MAY (shit) to read the next installment.Pre- releaseOkay. So the show officially ended in 2008. This book is going to be released early 2012. I have one question. What the hell took so long? There seems to be some confusion (in Avatar-related forums) as to whether the amount of post season 3 comics will be restricted to The Promise series or whether it will continue past that. I'd like to point out that these comics are going to cover every event until the start of the legend of Korra series. Logic would lead us to think that such a large period of time would be covered in more than 3 installments. Hopefully these comics will live up to the incredibly high standards set by their parent television show, and not stink like a rotting elephant carcass. Seriously though, I'm excited.

    I was so excited when I got this in the mail!! I totally miss the world of A:TLA and was so chuffed to delve back into this world. I know this is part of the promotional material to set up for the next Avatar series, but I don't care. All I want is MORE ZUKO!! MORE ZUKO!! The art is beautiful and the humor asides are fun. I think in graphic novel form, the story seems a bit more juvenile than the cartoon, but I realize also that this first volume is the set up and not the climax/resolution. I can't wait to find out what happened to Zuko's mom. YAY!

I loved it!It had the same humour and the same feel as the show, I really am looking forward to reading the next two parts of The Promise.I love that Toph has her own metal bending academy and that Sokka still has his boomerang :PAlso every time Aang and Katara call each other 'sweetie', I just die a little inside. <3

    I took away one star because a) it's too short, and b) Aang and Katara saying "sweetie" felt too out of character for me. However, this graphic novel is bloody good and a great extension of the series. Now I just need to get the other two...

    It was way better than I expected-- way better than it has any right to be! And yet, it doesn't come anywhere close to the show, lacking the gut-wrenching emotional moments, intricate relationships and most of all the character development. But I suppose that's to be expected after only one issue. I enjoyed it, but it just felt... lacking.

    Review for all three parts under the cut.(view spoiler)[YOOOOOO.Each one of these parts read exactly like an episode of Avatar and I LOVED IT!Part one: Oh goddamn. I didn’t even know removing occupations and cultural identity issues would be a thing! It MAKES SENSE THOUGH I just didn’t even think of it! ZUKO THOUGH. ZUKO BBY WHY ARE YOU GOING TO YOUR FATHER. THAT IS THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD TO DO. But really though I’m just so impressed that it’s exploring the mixing of the four nations and that there’s no way everything - and everyONE - are strictly one nation or another. Identities don’t work like that! THIS IS SUCH A GOOD STORY OH MY GOD.Part two: It was good! But not as good as the other two. Toph and Sokka’s part seemed rather unimportant to me and just was there as comic relief, which works fine in anime-format but in a book, it just felt awkward and unnecessary. AND THE OTHER BITS WERE JUST HARD TO READ. I mean don’t get me wrong - the complications and emotions and strife involved are brilliantly complex and amazingly gotten across and is just SO GREAT and fits right in with the rest of the series. But these two feelings combined made this part my least favorite.Part three: MY FAVORITE OF ALL THE THREE. Holy shit what a good message for cultural acceptance and individuality and identity and a DIRECT no-no towards cultural appropriation. SO GREAT. And it all resolved (relatively) smoothly and laid out the story for the next comic and just AAHHH. DAMNIT THOUGH ZUKO WHY OH WHY ARE YOU TALKING TO AZULA. DID YOU NOT LEARN AFTER TALKING TO YOUR FATHER? YOU ARE GOING TO THE WORLD’S WORST PEOPLE FOR HELP AND ADVICE.Overall COMPLETELY AMAZING AND FANTASTIC, and PERFECTLY FITS IN WITH THE MOOD AND AURA OF THE TV SHOW. Do you know how hard it is to translate a show into a comic, and the same for the reverse? PRETTY HARD. BUT I SEE IT DONE PERFECTLY WITH ANIME ALL THE TIME. AND THIS IS NO EXCEPTION. HOLY SHIT SO GOOD. COMIC TWO HERE I COME. (And that much closer to KORRAAAAAA)(hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Absolutely content. When the TV series ended with so many loose threads and the new series Korra announced, I kept feeling as if there was a whole story left untold. This book, The Promise Part 1, continues where Avatar Last Airbender the TV series left off - with Aang's duty fulfilled, Zuko as Firelord and the rest of the gang helping in the peace effort, it seems like this book is just going to be about the gang having fun and chilling out in the Fire Nation. But their peace threatens to be destroyed...the Fire Nation people are restless, nations are mingling with nations, Zuko's path becomes hazy as he struggles between the image of his father, his father's legacy and who he might be turning into and Zuko makes Aang make the ultimate promise - if Zuko was to ever turn into Firelord Ozai, Aang is to destroy him, friend or not. Cute, funny, suspenseful and a joy to read, bender friends will be taken on a journey of a lifetime!!!

    This review is for all three volumes, since it's really just one story and I read them all in one sitting. Sadly, I didn't like this nearly as much as Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Search. There's nothing terribly wrong with this story, but there's nothing terribly good about it, either. Yes, it does have the feel of an episode or two of the show, but these would not have been my favorite episodes. Not enough happens, and the same characters have the same arguments over and over again. And Toph's struggle to teacher a handful of misfits how to metalbend is almost insultingly small potatoes compared to everybody else's storylines. Some good moments, but not quite enough.

    AGAHGAARHRGH I MISS THIS SERIES SO MUCH!The war is over of course but peace has not been achieved. The first presumed step to restoring peace is to return all fire nation colonies implanted in the earth kingdom to the earth kingdom. I’m surprised by the lack of sympathy and understanding I see on other reviews claiming the Fire Nation is the only oppressive force. Yes, they invaded the land, and yes, it is not rightfully there’s but that was 100 years ago! The colonies made 100 years ago are not the colonies of 100 years later- there has been clear integration of the two cultures and it is not the simple solution of uprooting the fire nation- things are too complicated for such a simple solution, and in order to not repeat the mistakes of the past, simply uprooting one group of people (yes even people not rightfully there previously, but they are rightfully there now. They should not be blamed for the faults of their ancestors) only continues the cycle.This is like saying all white people should be blamed for slavery- even though less than 5% of white people today are related to slave owners. You can’t hold against people what happened in the past- they were born into it, how is it there fault? I’m not saying the Fire Nation is in the total right, but to achieve right and justice and fairness in the end, for all people, then there has to be a compromise that works for all and is fair to all. Otherwise, animosity is just bred and there is another war brewing.Naturally, Zuko must care for his own people and their needs as well. I think it was right in the end he planned to meet the earth king to discuss this further with Aang. Aang and Katara have these sugary sweet moments and I….I like them, I do, but there’s such a special place in my heart for Zuko and I really just want to see him happy. I feel like he has to deal with the most out of everyone- struggling with himself and now he has to struggle with others just as he’s beginning to understand himself. I liked that he went to his father in the end. As much as I respect Uncle Iroh, and believe he is Zuko’s real father or at least the father that counts the most, if there’s anyone that understands what it’s like to be Fire Lord, it’s Ozai.I love Zuko forever.

    It was nice to be back with Aang and the gang. The art style retains a very similar style to that of the tv series.Set after the events of the finale in season three. Zuko and Aang plan to remove the Fire Nation colonies to restore harmony between the nations. However, over the decades, the Earth Kingdom citizens and Fire Nation colonials have intermarried, forged relationships and have no desire to be uprooted or exiled. The years have changed the dynamics. Still, despite that, there are factions on both sides determined to reclaim the Earth Kingdom's land and send the invader's packing.Iroh decided to stay on in the Earth Kingdom and runs the Jasmine Dragon, his tea shop. Aang and Katara are now a couple.Zuko makes Aang promise to kill him if he ever starts to turn into his father, a concern that has been haunting him since recently visiting him in prison. He worries that the legacy of his blood might have to end with him. Aang promises very reluctantly to do so.Skip to one full year later:Zuko is not sleeping. He feels that there is someone there with him. There have been five attempts to kill him since he has taken the throne. He has to have guards while he sleeps and at this point is becoming paranoid.In this case, Zuko is not overreacting. He is attacked by a masked girl accusing him of betraying his people. He defeats her and it is revealed that she is the Kori, the daughter of the mayor of Yu Dao, the first of the Fire Nation colonies. Kori's father may be a Fire Nation citizen, but her mother is of the Earth Kingdom.She tells Zuko that his father would never have engaged in this plan, allowing the Earth Kingdom and the Avatar to intimidate Zuko into agreeing to this plan, no matter how detrimental it is to the Fire Nation citizens.Zuko keeps visiting his father trying to get him to tell him where his mother is. And Ozai keeps messing with him, dangling the truth just out of reach, taunting him, preying on Zuko's fears and worries.Toph meanwhile has started a metal-bending academy, but so far her three students are abysmal. They each have very distinct, over-emotive personalities.Roku insists that Aang should keep his promise and kill Zuko since he has reneged on his promise to support the removal of the F. N. colonies. Roku says that this is an example of his relationship with Sozin. They had been close friends and Roku had many opportunities to end him, but he did not and Sozin plunged the whole world into one hundred years of war. Aang resists the idea. He wants to talk it through with Zuko first.Smeller-bee, Sneers (sp?) and Long-Shot are among the protestors outside Yo Dao.I hated that Zuko was at odds with the gang. So determined not to become his father but listening to his poisonous words. Desperate to do right by his people but unable to communicate why uprooting the colony is wrong.Aang gets so upset that Zuko's men attacked them (supposedly on Zuko's orders) and then that Zuko physically stopped Katara and would not allow her to go after his soldier.After Zuko tries to explain why Yu Dao and the remaining older colinies should remain. Aang insists that the four nations must be separate. Katara reminds them the Earth King should be part of whatever choice comes next.When Toph explains "oogie" :)Zuko is not talking to Mai nor explaining what he is thinking/feeling. Still, Mai knows that he has not been sleeping so she invites the Kyoshi warriors to guard him, including Ty Lee and Suki.It ends with Aang and the others off to set up a meeting with the Earth King and Zuko going off to the prison to ask Ozai for advice.But why did they have to have Zuko go bad again?
