    ↠ 5 twinkling stars, and it deserves much moreIt's been well over a year since the first comic in this series got published which was a release which we all had been anticipating for years, especially after the show ended. Now we've reached the conclusion of the Turf Wars series which has been an absolute blast from the beginning.I'm having some difficulty with trying to put my love for Korrasami into words, and I don't think that I can or will...
  • E.
    Korrasami is so fucking canon you guys. My heart is swole :')
  • Jhosy
    Again ... A wonderful volume!And Korra finally tells Asami those three little words: "I love you"aaah ... my heart!I can't wait for the new volume!

    4.5 stars.I'm glad they are now continuing the Korra storyline in comics form, and this micked it off in grand fashion. (While I love Avatar, Korra always spoke to me more.)
  • Manisha
    A solid ending to a good story. I liked the team work, I loved the characters, and I hated the sketchy art style. It improved towards the end of this edition, but the beginning was a mess. I hope the next comic has better art work.
  • Devann
    Although I'm still not wild about the sketchy art style and sometimes messed up proportions, I did enjoy this volume a lot more than the second one. So glad we got a neat story like this that focuses on the aftermath of the series, both in terms of what happens next for Republic City and also for Korra and Asami. This volume does a good job of tying up all the loose ends and was a really fun read.
  • Ashley
    I just really miss Legend of Korra. That is my main takeaway from reading this three-part comic series over the last year. I just did a rewatch of Avatar the Last Airbender and Korra at the beginning of the year, but I might have to do another one. It's just so good.I think I might have also read this wrong. I read each issue as they came out, and looooved the first one. But the second two, less so. It had been months since I read the preceding i...

    I enjoyed part three the most. Even though some things were a bit simplistic, iyt had more emotion to it and it carried on with the overall spirit of the Avatar universe rather well. Also, go Korra and Asami! <3
  • Alison
    If you loved LoK as a tv show, the comics are a great extension + continuation of the story. These characters are wonderful, and I'll follow them to the ends of the earth.
  • Kelley Harrington
    The ending of this one made me unexpectedly emotional. Avatar Aang throwbacks and endings where LGBT characters survive and thrive have that effect on me I guess. <3
  • Χρύσα Αναστασίου
    I enjoy reading about Avatar Korra too much and I cannot get enough of her adventures. Part three gave us another glimpse of Republic city and the spirit portal which was amazing once again. A lot of things happened in this volume and the story moved forward in a way that left me with a huge smile on my face that will take some time to fade.More Korra, please!
  • James Bowman
    (This review covers all three parts of Turf Wars.)A solid continuation of Legend of Korra. The Korra-Asami relationship (and the reaction of others to it) is handled fairly well, as is the dramatic plot of the titular turf wars between rival bender gangs and between political factions in Republic City. The main villain wasn't very deep, but he gets points for an interesting design concept. (His rival in the Creeping Crystals had more promise.) Th...
  • Gillian
    3.75I honestly do prefer the TV show then the comics. I'm not a big fan of the art style these comics have in it but I do appreciate that Michael Dante DiMartino is making more comics for this world that I love so much. The one thing I really did enjoy about this three part series is that we got to learn more about the Triple Threat Tirad more. They were also an interesting gang and I've always wanted to know more about them. I'm very excited for...

    The plot here is pedestrian, but you know what? Sometimes I don't need innovative. Sometimes I just want to watch happy lesbians be happy together. Add in some nice character moments and the continued expanding role of my personal fave, Zhu-Li, and this was pretty much the perfect accompaniment to a weeknight night cup of tea on my sofa.

  • Aleksandra
    Beautiful finale to the trilogy! Korrasami scenes are iconic, Zhu Li is strong and beautiful and I love her, the art is so pretty!I'm so happy we are getting more The Legend of Korra comic books!
  • hope ❅
    Excuse me while I cry.
  • Hayley
    3.5 stars.Definitely not my favourite out of the three, but still good.
  • Ariya
    Who cares the plot is vaguely flawed and the idea isn't very original (compared to the first two volumes we have new groups of people and intense politico) when you have two favorite people kissing and confessing love to each other? I mean, everything else doesn't matter, right. Also Zhu Li is ready to be the kick-ass president for the republic city! Whooooo
  • Kirsten
    The story is aces, and I love the ending! The art seemed a bit rough or rushed in this one, though; I’m not sure what was up with that, but Asami’s face was really weirdly shaped a few times.
  • Sara Muniz
    Action Packed and ExcitingFirst of all, I gotta face it for me and many others one of the most exciting aspects of this series (Aside from the fact that the Avatar Series is just amazing in general) is the development of Korra and Asami's relationship. There's definitely a lot of that here, the reader gets to see how the two compliment each other, and we get to see them fighting for and protecting each other. The ending is inspiring, definitely l...
  • Artemis
    What a wait! And what a conclusion! Contains just the right pacing, beats, action, and character moments, all leading up to a climax in the spirit world. Not a battle, for peace will reign there until the end. Peace can reign anywhere, it can be shared, it can be achieved. Any people can coexist together, if only we all allow it to happen. It is so satisfying to see justice served and happiness for everyone in a story such as this. Its popularity...
  • Katrina
    This has nothing to do with my rating, but I still feel like I should explain that I took a long time to read this book because I was still very bitter about a preorder gone wrong. Since it was the final Korrasami book (at least with Irene Koh as the illustrator), there was a special release day event down in LA, and I preordered a copy that had been signed (and sketched in, I believe!) by the Avatar/Korra creators. Except the release day came an...
  • Alexis Sara
    I loved Turf Wars, this book was my favorite of the Avatar comics but beyond this I think it's a great story on it's own (although I imagine you need a degree of context to enjoy this). This volume really had a lot of action and while I think the threat was basically nothing and I felt more or less none of the tension other then a meta level "The writer thinks I should be afraid of this nothing baddy" overall I just love the character interaction...
  • G
    Disappointing. DiMartino still could not come up with a good reason for keeping a goddamn portal to the afterlife in the middle of the city. Korra could barely work with the spirits before she decided to leave the portals open, and most human-spirit interactions we've seen in the past haven't exactly been positive, how would letting MORE spirits into the world rectify that? Why not put more effort into trying understand the spirits that are alrea...
  • Alan
    Enough griping, and now to get back on point. Korra was arguably one of the best American animated series ever, yes I mean ever (at my advanced age I'm including Johnny Quest and The Venture Brothers). Turf Wars was meant to a continuation of the series, and it does pretty much picks up from where the run ended.There's enough action to keep those who want some explode with their story entertained, but what should not be overlooked during the cour...
  • Adam Stone
    It feels like aeons since the last part of this story came out, and I was a bit worried, as I didn't remember anything about the first two chapters, other than that I enjoyed them.Luckily, like the best of serial writers, DiMartino puts you right in the middle of the story while adding references and flourishes in the dialogue to remind you how the story progressed this far. And those references never felt forced or clunky.The ending of this book...
  • Paul Decker
    This is the third and final installment in this first continuation of The Legend of Korra story. I enjoyed the focus on Korra and Asami's blossoming relationship. They're official girlfriends! This arc got all the initial reactions from the main and minor cast out of the way so their story can continue to progress. Overall, it was a great coming out arc. I like that the series gets to continue in a different form, but I feel that some of the dept...
  • Vicki
    This review is for the entire trilogy.Predictable though the plot was, it was the funnest romp that brought my heart much joy. KORRASAMI! ZHU LI! ZHU LI x VARRICK (is there a ship name for them? There ought to be if there isn’t)! I also adored the Kya reveal in the first volume, just fyi. Brief though her cameo was, YAS QUEEN SLAY WITH YOUR PERFECTION. Jargala is also my favorite new character introduced and I hope we get more of her in future ...
