Avatar: The Last Airbender: North and South, Part Three: 07/05/18
Avatar: The Last Airbender: North and South, Part Three by Gene Luen Yang came out last year as we were in the middle of our move. This volume also happens to be the last of the comics that span the gap between the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender television series and the start of Avatar: The Legend of Korra.
Part Three finishes up the plot of the gentrification of the Southern Water Tribe's main village. It's becoming a regular city and a lot of the money and effort is from the Northern Water Tribe. There is also corruption and some of the bad feelings that come to a head in the early bits of The Legend of Korra.
Reading this volume, though, it's obvious that it's the end of Yang's time writing for Avatar. Open plot threads are sewn together nicely and neatly. The foundation for plots needed for Korra is laid. It's a good last volume but as a stand alone it lacks the drive and punch of previous ones.
There's now a Legend of Korra comic, also by Dark Horse, but written Michael Dante DiMartin and illustrated by Irene Koh.
