Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Search Part 1: 07/24/13
Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Search Part 1 by Gene Luen Yang starts where The Promise ends. Perhaps now after seasons of asking, we'll finally learn what happened to Zuko's mother.
Zuko, still reeling from the war feels his best hope for finding balance is in finding his mother. How can he help unite the different tribes when he can't even unite his family?
Part of this plan involves giving Azula a second chance. I think I'll be holding my breath throughout the remaining three part series, waiting for her to snap again.
Most interesting, though, are the flashbacks for Ursa's teenage years and early marriage. Her time before being the Fire Lord's wife hints at why she's missing now and shows why the family is as messed up now as it is.
