The Legend of Korra (Turf Wars #1)

Relishing their newfound feelings for each other, Korra and Asami leave the Spirit World . . . but find nothing in Republic City but political hijinks and human vs. spirit conflict! A pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. What's more, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal all-out brawl at the city's borders - where hundreds of e...

    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 takeT...

    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.

    The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars, Part 1 immediately picks up after the ending of the TV series. And let me tell you, Korra and Asami (henceforth referred to as Korrasami) in the Spirit World WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE FEELS :"> In words using my mother tongue, SOBRANG KINIKILIG AKO. My Korrasami reactions aside, I like how the story is setting up for the conflicts arising due to the new spirit portal. In a way, it'll look like a great parallel on th...

    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 ...

    ❝[W]hat we have, it's kind of like the spirit world—it's special and rare. And not everyone is going to see it that way.❞ The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One is hands down one of my favourite reads of 2017. The artwork is absolutely stunning! I was legit staring in amazement at some of the illustrations for a full minute. The art by Irene Koh and the colouring by Vivian Ng is utterly perfect.i am incapable of writing a full "normal" rev...

    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 impu...

    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 y...

    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 onl...

    A bit too rushed on the spirit world vacation - but that's probably because I care more about the korrasami relationship than the actual plot lmao

    Some introductionI 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 co...

    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 p...

    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 relation...

    I don't really write Goodreads reviews—this is my first one, actually. But this book so deeply affected me that I couldn't keep all of my feelings within myself and between Messenger chats with my friends.I was going to write something that was long. A personal essay, really. But I will simply say what I have been texting to my friends with vigour in the past hour:I've been out for over three years now, since November of 2013, when I was 16 yea...

    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 ...

    4 starsI love the Avatar world and I love the Legend of Korra, even though I haven't officially finished watching the show... BUT KORRASAMI 😍 also the artwork is beautiful as well.

    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 ...

    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...

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA <3 Mal terminei de assistir o desenho e já peguei o quadrinho - que, por sinal, começa exatamente depois que termina o último episódio. Eu amo esse universo e tô ansiosa pra ver como as histórias vão continuar aqui :)

    Wow! This book was seriously something. I really liked the movie, but honestly, I think that this could be even better turned into a movie.Full review to come this weekend.

    Okay this was amazing!!! It was the perfect continuation of Korra's story, and I loved the F/F romance in this! I loved the art style and excuse me while I fangirl in the corner!

    This was a really great continuation for the TV show. I like a lot of the topics this series deals with. Im a bit sad that I have to wait for the next one to be released. (view spoiler)[Im sure a lot of fans will be also excited to finally see Korrasami explicit as a couple. (hide spoiler)]COMFORT RE-READ IN MARCH 2018:Still amazing! I always love to revisit this world and its characters (regardless of whether its about the old or the new onces)....

    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 lan...
