If you haven't seen the Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon from Nickelodeon, don't buy this until you've seen all of it and read the first comic book in the series. There is a lot of back story you need to understand in order to read this.
Okay, first I will address how the book looked when I got it, which almost lost the product a star in the review process. It wasn't wrapped in any protective coating when it arrived at my door, so it was scuffed from something it had rubbed up against. There were black marks on the white cover and I was VERY annoyed. Luckily, my husband was a janitor and had a microfiber rag that took the scuff marks off without harming the cover itself. It saved Amazon's fifth star! (haha?)
Anyway. This book is INCREDIBLE. The storyline involves what happened to Zuko's mother, Ursa. I think every fan of the show wanted to know what happened to her, and the makers of the show never revealed it in the cartoon. I actually looked up the story on wikipedia a long time ago, but the description of events was so convoluted I couldn't get what really happened. Do yourself a favor and read this book. You will find yourself swept up in the tale and unable to put it down.
The art is a joy to view. Combined with the running commentary in the margins, everything is beautiful and purposeful. You can see the story unfold in the panels, but also through the eyes/words of the authors. The character development in this series never stops in the writing or the illustration.
This is a masterful telling of tales. I am proud to put it on my shelf.
It's clear to see that the Yang has a firm grasp of the characters, as the writing in this book is absolutely phenomenal. It is so honest to the source material that it genuinely feels like watching an episode from the show. However, they also take the opportunity to delve into more complex and mature themes, which is a nice change of pace. The art by the comic team Gurihiu is also outstanding. They depict an older Gaang while still remaining faithful to the character models. The way they portray bending is also incredibly impressive when considering they have to simulate motion in a still image.
Lastly, this book comes with annotations from the author and artists, making the whole process very gratifying. Every decision, both major and minor, are explained in depth throughout the book. Yang himself is a fan of the show and it is evident in the detail that he puts into his writing. Minor aspects of the show that weren't previously important come to the forefront of these books in ways that only a superfan could manage.
Overall, this book was an amazing read, and it felt like a return to the world that the show had so beautifully crafted. Once you start, you will remember exactly why you fell in love with these characters in the first place.

The book is huge. Massively, massively huge. Bigger than A4 paper. It doesn't actually make any trouble when readining, contrary to what other might say. Almost every other page is filled with commentaries from the creators, and at the end we also get lots of additional skecthes and cover designs - something always welcomed in collectors' edition.
The story is superb, much better than the one in "The promise", and it answers one of the most important questions fans ever had.
it is a must-have for any Avatar fan. Be sure, however, to get yourself a high enough bookshelf beforehand...
