The Legend of Korra Continues in New Comic Book Series


Managing Editor

Rejoice Korrasami fans!

Today Dark Horse announced that The Legend of Korra would be continuing in an all-new original comic story.

The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars will begin in June 2017 with the first of three eventual volumes. The story will be written by Avatar co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino and will be drawn by Irene Koh (whose work on the recent Batgirl: Secret Origins is gorgeous and you should be very excited.)

From Dark Horse:

Turf Wars begins with Korra and Asami leaving the spirit world and returning to Republic City only to find political hijinks and human vs. spirit conflict, as a pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. In addition, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal brawl at the city’s borders where hundreds of evacuees have relocated.  In order to get through it all, Korra and Asami vow to look out for each other—but first, they’ve got to get better at being a team.

Exploring Korra and Asami’s relationship is something we didn’t get nearly enough of in the television show, so to see these two work together for the first time as more than just friends is something that should have everyone very very excited.

On top of that, this is the first time that Korra will be a continuation set after the canonical end of the show. Korra‘s predecessor, Avatar: The Last Airbender, has had 4 different arcs told in this same format, and they are on par with the stories told on the original show. I am not joking. They are everything Buffy Season 8 could have been. Still mad you don’t know what happened to Zuko’s mom? GUESS WHAT THE ANSWER IS IN THE COMICS YOU GOTTA READ IT IT’S BANANAS.
