The Legend of Korra Lives on With Graphic Novels From the Original Creator
The last time we saw Korra, she was heading off to the Spirit World with Asami in season 4 of The Legend of Korra. Fans were ecstatic to see the pair finally together, but were less enamored with the fact that the popular series would not be returning for a fifth season.
However, much like its predecessor, Avatar: The Last Airbender, the beloved series will see the light of day once more – in graphic novel format! It was announced back in October 2016 that series co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino would be writing the new series, but we are still just as excited today as we were then.
The three-part graphic novel series, entitled Turf Wars, will pick up right where the show left off. Korra and Asami’s relationship is beginning to blossom as new threats emerge upon their return to Republic City. Chaos has erupted due to the new spirit portal, a developer and his plan for an amusement park, and the triads reuniting. When DiMartino sat down with EW back in October, he had this to say:
It’s gonna take place right after the finale, so it’s focusing on Korra and Asami’s relationship as a new threat emerges. It’s kind of like the aftermath dealing with the new portal in the city, and all the evacuees coming back to find their homes wiped out cause of the portal.”
Turf Wars is set to debut in June and is being published through Dark Horse Comics. Aside from DiMartino writing the graphic novels, Irene Koh will be handling the interior art, while Heather Campbell will be taking care of the covers, one of which you can see below:
What say you, fans? Excited that we are getting closer and closer to the release of Turf Wars? Do you wish they would have continued the story on TV, or are you glad that they have moved over to graphic novels? Let us know down in the comments section!
Before you do that, you absolutely have to check this out. A Twitch streamer completed Skyrim using only voice commands and it is absolutely ridiculous. By ridiculous, of course, we mean awesome!
