Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise, Part 1 - Gene Luen Yang, Bryan Konietzko, Michael Dante DiMartino, Gurihiru 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: - 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?!Well, that's all I've got to say right now. And thus ends my nerdy little rant.
