The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part Two: 11/22/18
The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part Two by Michael Dante DiMartino and Irene Koh is the second installment of the first comic after the end of the series.
The original animated series set up a city that was growing faster than it could cope with the basic planning a community needs. Filling in those gaps are corrupt politicians, rivals gangs, unscrupulous business moguls.
Current political climate has inspired the tonal shift in the comic. Now Republic City is being flooded with refugees at a time when the spirit world is trying to force everyone out. There's also a new race for the presidency. Meanwhile the gangs are gaining power. Crime is up and unchecked.
Meanwhile Korra is doubting her ability to find a peaceful solution to the turf war between the spirit world and the human residents of Republic City. Of course, her relationship with Asami is suffering too.
There's a lot of threads that will need tying up in Part Three.
