    korrasami was the first f/f ship I shipped in a tv show that actually became canon that shit still takes my breath away to this day. when I found out Michael Dante DiMartino was writing this comic I knew I had to have it. One, because the Avatar Universe is my favourite fantasy world .. honestly probably ever. I've not rewatched a tv show as much as I've rewatched Avatar, and any chance at slipping back into the world was one I was going to take Two, because Korrasami.

One, because the Avatar Universe is my favourite fantasy world .. honestly probably ever. I've not rewatched a tv show as much as I've rewatched Avatar, and any chance at slipping back into the world was one I was going to take Two, because Korrasami. I love them so much, and to see two bisexual women of colour depicted in a loving relationship is honestly rare. But it makes me so happy! And I wanted to see how their romance would continue after the sweet but entirely too short ending of The Legend of Korra this was literally everything I wanted . Turf Wars begins immediately after the end of the tv show and instantly the gay is hyped up by about 300%! I mean check this out ! So I definitely got all the cute and the kisses I needed, and expected. I basically just went into this wanting Korrasami, and to see all the Gang back together and I got all of that, so I was stoked. but this comic then proceeded to knock it out of the ball park by expanding on the universe and queer politics in an interesting and logical way I really liked the exploration of how sexuality works in the world, and how it fitted into each element and kingdom. Plus, Us Bisexuals officially get to claim Avatar Kyoshi as ours and I've never been more pleased. But genuinely, I think developing the world to be more considering of how sexuality works, and building more explicit sexuality into characters both old and new was such a great thing for this world. the downside is that the plot probably isn't the best There was some action and a fight over the spirit portal, the Triple Triad came back and a bunch of massive problems hit Republic City following Kuvira's attack, but this all happened very quickly. For me though, Avatar's appeal has always been it it's characters and world so it didn't actually bother me too much. And I expect that the action will be more prominent in following Parts. Honestly the most important thing about this is it made my heart go all 💓💓💓💓 . Thats what I came here for and that is what I got, and honestly I loved this so much and I can't wait for the next parts to be released Book one of SapphicAThon complete! (Can we talk about how I've finished three books today holy shit)

    Ahhhhhhhh honestly we need more stories about girls falling in love with each other instead of fighting over the guy. RTC after I'm done crying over everything that is Avatar.

    I don’t think I’ve talked about this much on here but I am utter trash for Korrasami and I cannot believe it took me this long to read this. This short graphic novel picks up where the show left off—Asami and Korra have left Republic City behind for a short vacation in the Spirit World. The art is BEAUTIFUL, and overall the story and pacing felt pretty similar to the show. A lot of the plot in this one focuses on showing Korra and Asami at the start of their relationship.

We also find out that a couple of other characters are/were also queer, and I really appreciated how nicely inclusive the novel was on the whole. Basically, I love these girls with all my heart and I cannot fucking wait for the second issue!!! :)))))) ------------------------- I just started this and it's already so gloriously gay.........korrasami is so fucking sweet and pure I could cry!! anyway I need more stories about girls who stop fighting over guys and fall in love with each other instead!!!!

    You mean "Legend of Korrasami" right? I'm thrilled at how balanced and healthy the relationship between Korra and Asami is portrayed. There are kisses, a talk about when they realized they had romantic feelings for each other, telling parents and friends they're a couple, and the two working together as well as complementing each other's skill sets and being supportive. There's a tiny bit of tension of course, because Korra's still naturally impulsive and a hothead, but it's corrected right away You mean "Legend of Korrasami" right?

Oh, and I adored Kya before but I'm even more in love with her now! It's more than what I expected to get and I'm so grateful and excited for more!

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I miss Legend of Korra so freaking much. Every couple of years, I get this insatiable urge to rewatch Avatar: The Last Airbender, and ever since Korra ended in 2014, I've folded them in together as one big rewatch. I find them both so lovely and comforting and fun and beautiful. I've also been reading Gene Luen Yang's official comics continuations of Aang and the gang, and really enjoying them, so you bet your ass when I heard that there would be an offici I don't know about the rest of you, but I miss Legend of Korra so freaking much.

I've also been reading Gene Luen Yang's official comics continuations of Aang and the gang, and really enjoying them, so you bet your ass when I heard that there would be an official comics continuation of Korra, and written by one of the show's co-creators, no less, I've been waiting for it like a little kid on Christmas. The library finally got a copy to me last month, and after I read it (twice in a row), I immediately started rewatching Avatar: TLA. I'd finished both series within the week. Which is all to say, this book felt like Korra in all the ways that matter. But better because Dark Horse doesn't care (Like Nickelodeon did) if they show girls kissing and explicitly mention same sex relationships. Woooooo! The comic picks up right where we left off, with the newly relationshipped Korra and Asami heading off for a (romantic) vacation in the spirit world. They just go for it right away with all the Korrasami up in there, and I was just like yesssss, and had to put the book down for a bit to calm down. Actually, there's a whole part later where Kya is talking to Asami and Korra about her first girlfriend and they discuss the different tribes' attitudes regarding sexuality, and it was so interesting. (In case you're curious: the Water Tribe doesn't really care who you love, as long as you don't talk about your relationships publically, and they are private about sexuality in general; the Fire Nation didn't used to care at all, but Ozai and such made it taboo during the war because fascism, and only during Zuko's reign was it made legal again; the Earth Kingdom was historically the most resistant and traditional and while open condemnation was rare, it did happen; and the Air Nation (big surprise here) was openly accepting of any type of relationship. (P.S. Avatar Kyoshi was totally bi!) And now I will talk about something other than sex. As for the actual storyline, Korra and Asami come home early from their spirit world vacation and immediately have to start dealing with the fallout from the creation of the new spirit portal being and all the refugees created by the battle with Kuvira in the finale. This all felt very much like a beginning, and I'm not sure where it's going, but for now I'm just happy to have Korra (and Tenzin, Bolin, Meeko, Jinora, Asami, Varrick and Zhu Li, Su Lin and Lin and all the Beifongs) back in my life, and I shall continue to assume what's coming will be awesome. (Though it's pretty hard to top the greatness of season three, let's be honest.) I read this three times before I finally gave it back to the library. Looks like the next issue won't be out until 2018 and that is unacceptable. Oh, and look at Mako's face when he finds out his two ex-girlfriends are now dating each other: Priceless.

    I can't believe it's already been three years since the last episode of Legend of Korra aired. I remember getting up on Sundays every week, excited for another new episode of this show. I loved it so much, and this series will always have a very special place in my heart. (view spoiler)[I liked it more than A:TLA, don't @ me. (hide spoiler)] It felt amazing seeing all the characters I loved again in this comic. It was very short, which was the only disappointing thing, but now I can't wait until I can't believe it's already been three years since the last episode of Legend of Korra aired.

But, totally recommend if you love: - Korrasami - Beautiful drawings and landscapes of the Spirit World - Seeing a new layer of the world and learning new things about old characters - Tension between humans and spirits - A new and, I expect, formidable antagonist

    Some introduction I really liked The Legend of Korra TV series, even more than The Last Airbender, because it was more mature and with tighter plot (maybe except for the last season). I was quite disappointed that there'll be no Korra.... Recently I found out about the Turf Wars, and I was curious to find out what happens next. I'm not a fan of graphic novels, actually I think it's the first graphic novels that I read, but it's Korra :) Turf Wars continues exactly where the TV series left-off.

There's a new spirit portal in Republic City and we learn about Korrasami. Their romance and its revelation felt like very out of the blue, because there were no hints that would imply anything regarding a love story between the two. Anyway, it was nice, a ff romance, why not? :) My thoughts Let's move on to this graphic novel. The first 1/3 is all about their romance, and feels very cheesy. It's all about acceptance, who's going to accept them as a couple, who's not, their fears, how public acceptance should be like etc. Feels like the story concentrates too much on romance and almost like the author tried to educate readers rather than tell a good story. Second third presented new problems in Republic City, new villains, citizens with no homes, and human-spirit conflicts the new portal created. It was good, but after that there was another "too much romance part" (thankfully not a long one), but later things got more interesting again as the conflict between some villains and the spirits got heated. All in all, it's an interesting story that lays the foundations of things to come ahead. It could have been much better if they would have kept the spirit of the TV show throughout the whole novel and tell a good story rather go in different directions. The artwork is really great! I look forward to part 2! :) 3.5/5

    Miraculous books like this make me want to add a sub-shelf to my Goodreads LBGTQ shelf, called "They actually kiss in this". It is sad and really not at all surprising that, even today, a lot of the media we consume which boasts of content exploring various sexual orientations, in fact use nothing more than the dreadful and offensive queerbaiting technique, or otherwise resort to subtext: safe, risk-free options whilst still placing heterosexual pairings in the spotlight. And the need to bury the Miraculous books like this make me want to add a sub-shelf to my Goodreads LBGTQ shelf, called "They actually kiss in this". It is sad and really not at all surprising that, even today, a lot of the media we consume which boasts of content exploring various sexual orientations, in fact use nothing more than the dreadful and offensive queerbaiting technique, or otherwise resort to subtext: safe, risk-free options whilst still placing heterosexual pairings in the spotlight. And the need to bury the "Bury Your Gays" trope has never been more vital and cannot be ignored any longer. In an age of so-called "progress" and tolerance, the message, though likely unconscious on the writer's part, is nevertheless there in most media: "I and quite a majority of people still think you are wrong for existing. We might intentionally add in a little sexual tension between characters of the same sex, but that's for fanservice only, and we will never really have the secure balls to go anywhere with it, much less commit to a same-sex coupling. So it'll be death, or teasing played for laughs at your expense. No happy ending for you either way. I mean, you're only a very small minority, right? Ain't we progressive? Why aren't you people ever satisfied? Bye!" Yet here comes a comic for children - a continuation of a Nickelodeon cartoon - that features two bisexual, biracial main female leads kissing each other. On the lips. More than once. It also doesn't ignore or gloss over issues such as coming out to family and friends, and how the couple will work together both internally and externally with all the dangers they face. There is a history of same-sex relationships and how they are viewed in the different nations of the 'Avatar' world, to add to the worldbuilding that couldn't be aired on TV. 'The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One' portrays a more thoughtful, heartfelt and especially explicit LBGTQ relationship than any media for adults I have seen in a long, long time. Just thinking about how gratifying this little comic book could be for any young person reading and who is discovering their feelings regarding own their sexuality that is outside of conservative heteronormality, and working out any confusion, gives me hope for the future. It turns out that in the beloved, fantastical, Asian culture-influenced world of 'The Legend of Korra', most people are accepting of who you are, and who you love. So there shouldn't be any shame or fear of stigma or hate or ignorance anywhere in the real world. So, yeah, Korrasami! Michael Dante Di Martino promised and delivered beautifully. What I didn't get from the original series, which I am not a gigantic fan of but loved aspects of the last two seasons, I got in 'Turf Wars'. No subtext, no poor, barely-there development to leave me cold: Korra and Asami are officially a couple. In a plot about turf conflicts (obviously), and tensions between humans and spirits made to coexist, along with themes concerning homelessness, refugees and relocation, this comic's main focus is setting the introduction of the relationship between the headstrong and impulsive Avatar Korra, and the calm, levelheaded and no less determined industrialist and property developer Asami Sato. How they go about it and what it entails. They care for other people in their plights, as well as for each other. It is incredibly sweet. To see what the graphic novel business has achieved in 2017 what animation aimed at families (and adults, for that matter, at least in a mature way) hasn't quite yet...again, am I too hopeful a sod? Not even in 2016's 'Princess Princess Ever After', which I love, do the main queer characters kiss. This and 'Zodiac Starforce' are huge steps forward. 'The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One' is a very good book in other parts. The artwork is excellent and pretty to look at, capturing the feel of the show identically, if not better. There is action, politics ("I bet if spirits could vote, you'd change your tune!" Korra yells at the disgraced Republic City president), and the other women of 'The Legend of Korra' receive their due, even if they are cameos: the world's best organiser Zhu Li, my favourite little spirit guide Jinora, Chief Lin BeiFong, and the wonderful Kya. Not everybody gets to appear in the 80 pages of Part One, but we shall see in the sequels. Another thing I find interesting is the revelation that Fire Lord Sozin had decreed a ban on same-sex relationships during his reign. Seeing as he clearly had feelings for Avatar Roku in the original 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' show, I interpret this as both an expression of denial (linked with self-hated and shame; aka internalised homophobia) and a further kind of punishment for Roku, for the unrequited love in this instance. Also, (view spoiler)[ Mako's reaction to Korra and Asami coming out is... different, less enthusiastic than everyone else's. Given that he had dated both girls and screwed them over more than once, maybe, on an unconscious level, he views this resolution to the infamous love triangle as a threat to his manhood? A karmic middle finger to him? Again, perhaps this will be explored in the sequels. I hope the writers can still make him interesting without involving anything related to romance. (hide spoiler)] 'Turf Wars Part One' misses a point for being too short and not enough characters getting a chance to shine. But it is early days. Recommended to 'Korra' and non-'Korra' fans alike. To people who love fantasy - spirits, dragons, fantasy action, a diverse array of female characters; as well as race and queer representation this is a dream come true for me - and to people who desperately want to see a glimpse of a bright, hopeful future. For children are our future. Final Score: 4/5

Also, the whole history repeating itself, at least to some degree, was ironic and a bit funny. Whenever I was reading that specific part with the spirits I couldn't help but keep thinking "Well, doesn't this feels familiar?" And I can't help but loving it because it's so realistic in how we humans work. Brilliant. I don't really know when it happened but just my love for Tenzin, apparently, just grew tenfold with absence because that brief appearance had me swooning and grinning. Turf Wars features Korra and Asami being awesome as always, Zhu Li being the boss, Bolin and Opal being their adorable selves, Mako being clueless and Kya being the most awesome woman on earth. Can you ask for more? ________________ And I've made my way to The Legend of Korra. I'm in a bit of a comic mood this year and, well, since I love this world I decided it was not a bad idea to continue with some more Avatar for now and see what our sweet characters have gotten themselves into. Different than with the Avatar show I didn't watch Korra until recently so I'm kind of new to the world.

Korra will need all the help she can get since the spirit world is also in danger and the evacuees during Kuvira's reign are in desperate need of shelter. This was a nice intro to all the trouble ahead and I'm sure book 2 will definitely be more action packed but hopefully we'll still gets lots of Korrasami moments as well. Overall rating is a full 4*.

    4.5 stars. While Avatar is undisputedly an amazing show, I find that Legend of Korra speaks to me more. I find the aesthetical look of the show to be more appealing, and the themes that the show covered (self-discovery, oppression, equality, revenge, etc.) to be handled in a frank and engaging manner, while still maintaining the Avatar humor. And to have such a thing as the Asami/ Korra relationship be handled so well is another point in it's favor, a thing that this first volume really capitalize 4.5 stars.

The Avatar/Korra comics continue to impress, and here's hoping for many more to come!

    amazing stunning brilliant 10/10 want to read again The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One is official continuation of one of my all time favorite tv series The Legend of Korra and they are amazing. I love the illustrations, they are simply stunning, special shoutout for making background in bisexual flag colors when Korra and Asami are talking about their relationships. And yes, Korra and Asami, two sapphic women of color in established relationship are the heroines of the story and this is amazing stunning brilliant 10/10 want to read again The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One is official continuation of one of my all time favorite tv series The Legend of Korra and they are amazing.

And yes, Korra and Asami, two sapphic women of color in established relationship are the heroines of the story and this is everything I wanted. Okay I want to gush about how pretty and lovely everything is, but we will be their all night. The plot is so on point, well-paced and captivating. I think volume 1 is usually about introduction but as we all know characters and the setting from the series, so we are diving right back to the plot. Oh how i love it. Magic vs technology, aftermath of the battle and the city dealing with the portal to the spirit world in the middle of it. Political and societal problems are well-developed and i just can't wait to read part 2 & 3 & 4 etc, I'm hoping the comic will have many many volumes. And finally the characters. I adore Korra and Asami, they are amazing and they are amazing together. Plus we get to see Korra's parents meeting Asami, great scenes with Bolin, Mako, Kay and many faves from the tv series. I highly recommend to read The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One, but only after watching the tv series. It won't make lots of sense otherwise. And to point out once again, it is official continuation of the series and Korrasami is as canon as canon be. Just give my babes some love and watch & read it.

    I just finished I my first (!!!) watch of Legend of Korra and still very much wanted to see more. This gave me what I wanted. The new villain/problems don't have all my interest, but I am definitely sticking around for these characters <3 (especially Korra and Asami) I just finished I my first (!!!) watch of Legend of Korra and still very much wanted to see more.

    I'm satisfied. Teeny tiny issue here: I think Korra reacted too angrily when Tonraq advised her to keep the news about her and Asami a secret. I know she's on the fiery side but she also matured quite a bit during the last years so this felt like a tiny slip into ooc territory. Then shortly after she was passive when the incident with the air nomads and the amusement park guy happened. But maybe it was because she was surprised that her normally calm and levelheaded girlfriend was so furious at I'm satisfied.

It's interesting how the art style is still Avatar-style but whereas Atla-comics with Aang are brighter (colourwise), the LoK comic leans a bit to the darker shades. Though plotwise and conflictwise both series have the same amount of "darkness" and politics more or less, though Atla has characters who goof it up a notch with some of their antics and lines.

    I did not watch the show, so when I picked up this comic, I was a little lost. Not “lost” necessarily, but it’s just that the moments didn’t hit me as hard because I didn’t already have a strong bond with the characters and the world. Without watching the show prior, you get the distinct sense that you’re missing some powerful story arcs and character development. I’d probably recommend that if you’re about to read this comic, you either watch the show that proceeded it or you read a synopsis, so I did not watch the show, so when I picked up this comic, I was a little lost.

    I wanted more pages !!! That was so good! In Turf Wars Part 1 Korra and Asami goes to the spiritual world, after the battle and the new portal creation in the cartoon. The two spend a few days full of adventure, but after a little confrontation with a spirit that is against the approach of humans and spirits, they decide to return to the human world. Korra takes Asami to meet her parents and she cames out. Korra's parents are pleased with the news, but Korra's father warns that some people may not b I wanted more pages !!! That was so good!

The two spend a few days full of adventure, but after a little confrontation with a spirit that is against the approach of humans and spirits, they decide to return to the human world. Korra takes Asami to meet her parents and she cames out. Korra's parents are pleased with the news, but Korra's father warns that some people may not be as positive and advises them not to advertise about the relationship. Korra gets annoyed with this and decides to go back to Republic City with Asami. Asami manages to calm Korra and says that in part she understands what the Korra's father meant. She confesses that she isn't ready to tell everyone about them at the moment. Korra apologizes for having acted without consulting her before. In the republic city conflicts are occurring between gangs, refugee people feel insecure without their homes and elections are approaching. Things don't improve with an entrepreneur who wants to use the portal as a tourist center. In the midst of all this chaos, Korra and Asami end up arguing, Asami is injured in a confrontation between spirits and a gang and Korra saves her. She ends up kissing Asami and the others find out about the relationship. The art is very beautiful and the story exciting as well as cute in the moments with Asami and Korra. I just wish there were more chapters, I can't get enough of Korra.

    I don't really see how this could be better, unless parts 1 and 2 were together in one volume, because I'm eager to see where it goes next. This picks up right where Korra left off, and you get to see Korra and Asami's vacation together in the spirit world, their first kiss, and them beginning to tell people about their relationship. There's also set up for the main plot arc, but they do the right thing here and give the people what they want: a spotlight on Korra and Asami's relationship, compl I don't really see how this could be better, unless parts 1 and 2 were together in one volume, because I'm eager to see where it goes next.

This still feels miraculous that they became canon, so having the comic sequel focus on it is perfect. Plus Kya is bisexual! The Air nomads were accepting of all orientations! Avatar Kyoshi was bisexual! This is a world that isn't entirely accepting, but it's also not entirely anti-queer. It's complicated. Which I think is a good choice. Love it. Can't wait for the next one.

    Lucky I follow Bryan Konietzko at Tumblr and came across this interview with Michael Dante diMartino and Irene Koh about this next journey of Korra: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/mb... And this book presents that in a simple and beautiful way. It is as enjoyable as the TV series.So good to meet the Korra characters again and hear the names of the places in the Avatar world like Ba Sing Se. It is like a trip down the spirit...I mean memory lane.
