Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rift, Part 3: is the conclusion of the Rift trilogy.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rift, Part 3 by Gene Luen Yang is the conclusion of the Rift trilogy. When last we left our intrepid heroes, most were trapped in a collapsing mineshaft. Saving them causes even further trouble, awakening an ancient warrior hell bent on destroying factory sitting on the site sacred to the Air Nomads.

Ang faces and uncomfortable situation where he may be forced to destroy the factory in order to save the workers, or face going against an ancient spirit and perhaps further upsetting the balance between the human and spirit word.

Ang

Toph meanwhile does her best to reconcile with her father. The tension between them hints at her future disconnect with her children which is addressed in the final season of The Legend of Korra.

Talented as I am, I can't compose poetry when I'm freaked out of my mind.

Along with the big picture story of the ever present struggle between tradition and progress, and the sacred and the secular, there's the humor that gives both series its humanity. There's a poet, one of Toph's proteges who is struggling with creativity.

Poor cabbage vendor.

And there's of course, our old friend the cabbage bender. As long as Ang's around he can't catch a break.

Five stars
