    Yes, I'm biased, but that doesn't change the fact that this was a great installment to the series. Usually, the middle comic is where the story drops as it is setting up the third and final installment of the trilogy, but that's not the case here. Corrupt politicians, Indian and Muslim representations, romance trouble, supportive friendships and relationships, humour, action, plot twists and intrigue...What more could I have wanted from this worl...

    This had everything I have ever wanted.Korrasami being cute.Zhurrick being the literal definition of married.One frame of Kainora which is not much tbh but it's more than we've gotten in years so we'll take what we can get.

    I mean I still love the world and the characters and KORRASAMI [and how awkward Mako is lmao] but overall there was just something missing from this volume and I didn't enjoy it as much as the first one. I think part of it was the art style which I thought looked vaguely hurried and unfinished, and also that the plot to me was suffering from 'middle book syndrome' where it just seems like it's kind of a bridge to get from the beginning to the end...

    How can I only ever rate other than 5 stars for this? I am honestly screaming so hard right now that I'm surprised my upstairs neighbors haven't contacted the police or something. I've been more than excited ever since it was announced that a comic about Legend of Korra was in the making. I wanted more of this incredible world and its character especially since the show ended just when Korra and Asami their relationship had begun. The first comi...

    So good! The comic is a gift that keeps on giving! I love seeing Korra and the squad!The illustrations are lovely and the plot is going strong, I love wars for powers, both between the gangs and for the presidency. I'm seeing a lot of ideas relevant to our modern society and I'm living for it!The characters are amazing as always. I love seeing Korra and Asami in their day-to-day interactions, Bolin and Mako are being kickass cops. Special shoutou...

    'Turf Wars Part Two' is very middle-book, with everything moving towards the conclusion in the next book, reaching no resolution on its own. There is less time for character development, and like the previous volume it is too short! The subplots are many as to make me wonder how each of them will possibly reach a real conclusion later on in such a mini-miniseries. There is less Korrasami as well, as this comic volume is mainly plot-driven (slowly...

    This is so good! It really reads like an episode of the show. Also, Korrasami. 😎❤🏳🌈 5/5 Stars. This is so good! It really reads like an episode of the show. Also, Korrasami. 😎❤️🏳️‍🌈 5/5 Stars.

    I don't know what to say except that I love all these characters so much (especially Lin Beifong) and I'm near tears at how happy I am to get more of them. The art is gorgeous, and the story is exciting and engaging, and Lin Beifong is a total badass. Also, hooray for my favorite bisexuals!

    I actually liked this one even better than the last. It was funny, well-paced, intriguing... it also set up a lot of things for the next part. AND THAT CLIFFHANGER AT THE END I'M SO MAD.Also the Korrasami

    Tokuga uses his new found powers to make a play for Republic City while Korra is trying to figure out what happened to the creatures of the latest Spirit portal. Korra must also deal with finding a missing Asami.I really love the dynamics of Korra and Asami's relationship as well as Mako's stepping up to protect the city. Lots of great action.

    My poor poor Korrasami feelings. How can I wait five months for the last part -.-

    Great second act!(view spoiler)[It really feels like a second act since Asami being captured is certainly a low point for Korra.I love the idea of Zhu Li Moon as the new president! I hope the elections are in the next comic and that she will win.Tokuga's plan has formed more and I think Part Three looks like it will be mainly a showdown between Team Avatar and the Triple Threats.Also, Raiko is still an ass.(hide spoiler)]

    Still excellent content, still in love with this world and cast. I think the color work adds so much, and the political tones of the plot showcase strong competent women taking charge. Quick read, energetic pace, fun world in which to spend a few hours!

    General discussion review: what I personally thought of Turf Wars part twoI very much enjoyed part two of Turf Wars.STORY- I felt that overall the story was a good middle ground and was where it needed to be, yet without any parts that stand out to me as a drag or slow down point; it stayed pretty constant and held my interest the whole way.As always, suuuper excited about the Korrasami relationship and to see where that goes. Seeing how they slo...

    I had to pause to reread the first volume, because I couldn't remember the details of what had happened. I think these books really do read better as a single entity, rather than as installments, but I'm too impatient to wait for them to all be published. My hesitations with the first part were addressed here; we get a lot of plot, but it's handled deftly. Again, I think having the show's creator writing these does a lot to keep them feeling like...

    One of the innate problems of a book series that comes out every month versus a TV show that comes out every week is the ability to recall details about the last adventure. As much as I'm enjoying the Avatar series of graphic novels, it is definitely more fun to binge-read each three-part story than it is to read them as they come out.This volume continues the American Prohibition Era-esque gang wars set up in the previous volume. It's fun, despi...

    I didn't enjoy it as much as the first part, some parts of the plot just didn't make that much sense or directly fell into some absurd cliche (C'mon, damsel in distress anybody?). I feel like some of the characters, included Korra, have gone back to their Book One selves, and even if I love Korrasami since I first watched the series, I have the feeling they're just pushing it in these comic-books, like this pairing deserved so much better writing...

    A classic middle bridge of an issue, but blessed are we for Korrasami. Can never express how great it feels to see them in such a supportive environment. (And not be the only queer characters, either!) I wish these were longer to really flesh out the subplots and character development, though.

    Gorgeous artwork again. Looking forward to the tie-up in V3 of "Turf Wars". Right now, there's so many unexplored threads ~ especially the potential political uprising of the refugees, who seem to be being used as pawns for a variety of players in this match.Korra's impulsiveness and brash actions without careful analysis of potential consequences will continue to get her into trouble, I'm sure... Also: KorrAsami = adorable.

    As this is part 2 of 3, I can't say much without spoilers, but I really enjoyed this volume! The art was still fantastic. I really felt like I was watching an episode of the show! I was glad to see more Mako and Bolin buddy/brother cops, and more of the Tenzin family. Also, Zhu Li and Varrick! So good to see them again! I love this continuation of a show that I really enjoyed, and I need to get the Avatar graphic novel continuations soon! 4/5, am...

    Ugh this story is so good though? Plus Korrasami is lovely and that ending needs to go jump.

    Well this book managed to make the conflict I thought would not be very engaging into something extremely intense. I feel like my feelings on this volume would change depending on how volume 3 plays out since this is a lot of build. The Mako and Bolin sections weren't my utter favorite but came together in the end in a satisfying way. There is still a nice number of queer moments here but the focus leaves the queer world building and that is a bi...

    I really wanted to like this better than book 1 and I did. For one Zhu Li for president is so boss! Korra and Asami’s fleshing out of their relationship was refreshing. I liked that Asami had more of a presence, I can’t complain about her getting kidnapped because I saw that coming. For a few minutes I went back and forth about what to score this, I thought about giving it four stars, but my editing and writing background wouldn’t let me g...

    Reading these is as frustrating as reading a great web comic that only gets updated once a week. There's just not much here. It seemed like it took FOREVER for this second book to come out, I want to say months to a year but maybe that's my imagination - and I read it in like minutes. It is supposed to be a "trade paperback" but honestly, these are barely longer than like 1.5 or 2 at a stretch single issues of a comic and just put into a slightly...
