I’ve been a big fan of artist/writer Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Avatar: The Last Airbender) and have many of his graphic novels on my book shelf. He just released his epic 2 volume series Boxers & Saints.
Retrenders had a busy weekend so we haven’t had a chance to write a review on the first two episodes of the new Nick series Legend of Korra. But if you missed the first two episodes you can watch them on Nickelodeon. Click on this link: Welcome to Republic City.
You can also download the debut episode for FREE on Apple iTunes: Legend of Korra Vol. 1. And you have the option of buying the HD episodes for the entire season for $29.99USD.
We will have a review up but one of our bloggers wants to get into a few more episodes before a write up. The jury is still out for me until I get a few more episodes in because there are so many questions on the back story of old and new characters. I have questions about Zuko’s mom, what happened to Sokka, who did Toph Beifong marry, and what happened to the Kyoshi Warriors? So many questions! So right now I just want to have fun watching it and exploring this new universe of characters and story lines.
To some of us who have watched “Avatar: The Last Airbender”, we have heard about the newly anticipated spin-off sequel! The general plot of the whole show is that every century or so a savior is born with the ability to manipulate the four elements of water, fire, air, and earth. The person with this ability is called the “Avatar” and it is the Avatar’s job to keep the balance of the world stable. Each avatar is a reincarnation of a previous avatar. This season’s new main character is a young girl named Korra, the cartoon will talk about her coming-of-age story and her new role as savior of the world.
