{English} Avatar - The Last Airbender: The Lost Adventures

For fans of: the Nickelodeon series
Published: 2011 (Dark Horse)
Pages: 240

 Blurb: This volume collects the long-out-of-print, fan-favorite comics previously published in Nickelodeon Magazine and with the Airbender DVDs, plus over seventy brand-new comics pages. That's twenty-six stories set in Airbender continuity, by a host of top-notch talent, many of whom worked on the original animated series!
Twenty-six in-continuity stories, plus bonus content!

My opinion: This is a really cute collection of mostly short comics. They're set during the TV series "Avatar - The Last Airbender" and (just like the series) divided into three books. Most of the adventures happened on various travels of Aang and his friends, but some follow Zuko and Co. as well.

Before reading this I thought the stories would be longer and that we'd find out more about the backgrounds of this series. But some stories don't really have much going on and they don't give us really interesting information. Some were only 2 or 3 pages long and had mediocrely funny punchlines. Something that kids would laugh about, perhaps. To be fair, the characters ARE kids.

There were many writers and artists who worked on this and of course, every cartoonist has their own style, but some stories looked very different from the original style. Apart from those few, the others were very similar.

I don't want to go into detail about what's happening in the stories, because that would take way too long. A thing that they all have in common is that they perfectly fit into the TV series. They could be cut out scenes or flashbacks.
So if you were/are a fan of "Avatar - The Last Airbender", you should definitely check this out!


My rating: 4/5 Buttons
