    Some months have passed since I read the first installment in this series, but that didn't seem to matter because as soon as I started to read this I was sucked back into this universe as if no time had passed at all. For some reason that always tends to happen whenever the Avatar the last Airbender universe is involved because it has been playing such a large part in my life for nearly half of it.

    Some months have passed since I read the first installment in this series, but that didn't seem to matter because as soon as I started to read this I was sucked back into this universe as if no time had passed at all. For some reason that always tends to happen whenever the Avatar the last Airbender universe is involved because it has been playing such a large part in my life for nearly half of it.

    I had to chuckle when I saw that Sokka's intrusted detective-hat made a reapearance and I immediately got flashbacks to that episode where Sokka and Katara try to prove Aang's innocence.

    The story in the second installment of this series has definitely quickened after the factory of Toph's father has been attacked and it creates turbulance in the small Cranefish Town. A rift between benders and non benders is being created and of course it's up to Team Avatar to stop this rebellion before it gets out of control.

    I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but there were a couple of things that I as a devoted Avatar fan want to point out because they made me proud and happy okay.

    Suki is back! I had actually been complaining about the lack of Suki in the comics so I wasn't prepared for Suki to suddenly make an appearance in this one, but I'm

    complaining because what's not to love about Suki. She deserves more appreciation.

    There is a point where Team Avatar has to go undercover and when I saw Aang's disguise it made my whole day! I'm not even joking. It's always an incredibly hilarious sight to see Aang with hair.

    Toph plays a vital point in this comic we aand re rewarded with plenty of illustrations where Toph displays her displeasure about the whole situation. To this day Toph is still my favorite character in the avatar series

    Also whenever Katara and Aang were exchanging judgemental looks with each other I went :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

    So overall I liked Part 2 a lot more than I did the previous one and that's maybe because the story was finally kicking off in this one and the rift between benders and non benders is increasing.

    . As such, there are more gradually developing political tensions than fast-paced bending fight scenes and action sequences, but I don't think that's a bad thing by any means (and honestly, the illustrations are so lovely I'd devour them regardless of the story).

    I knew where this instalment was heading for the cliffhanger, and I'm excited to see that once again Aang is faced with this choice - particularly because of the ramifications that could come from it in this new political/economic climate. I can't wait to see how things conclude in the final issue!

    I love the dynamic of Team Avatar. That classic humor is present. It's also cool to see the designs beginning to grow up, showing the youngsters aging. Suki is back in this volume! And Toph is an awesome badass.

    I give this comic volume a 4/5. I always love stories continuing Team Avatar's adventures post-tv series. The animosity in this volume parallels well with modern politics and discussions about privileges.

    Faith Erin Hicks does a wonderful job continuing the series. The art looks like the next season you haven't watched yet. If you're a fan of the cartoon, you'll dig this.

    One thing I can definitely say about all these Avatar books (for both Korra's and Aang's stories) is that they are very high quality, true to the Avatar world, and with brilliant illustration work. They are a great way to continue the series and enjoy more tales from our favorite characters. With Imbalance, our Team Avatar must confront the dissonance between benders and non benders - and those willing it create a suprem

    One thing I can definitely say about all these Avatar books (for both Korra's and Aang's stories) is that they are very high quality, true to the Avatar world, and with brilliant illustration work. They are a great way to continue the series and enjoy more tales from our favorite characters. With Imbalance, our Team Avatar must confront the dissonance between benders and non benders - and those willing it create a supremacy on one side, once and for all.

    Story: Toph's father's factory was blown up - with Toph inside! She escaped injury but she's mad and she needs Team Avatar's help to solve the mystery behind the sabotage. A meeting with a friendly City councilwoman in Cranefish turns up new clues and unearths a conspiracy to subjugate non benders to bender will. Can the team create peace and fix this unbalance?

    Imbalance #2 does feel like a middle book in that it starts off where another book ended - and then finishes with a cliffhanger to lead into a third in the series. But that's ok - there is a clear story arc here and the last pages leave us looking forward to more.

    Although the illustrations do make everyone seem around age 13 or so, they are clean and bright and nicely match the original tv series. Sokka's impishness, Toph's aloofness, Aang's earnestness, and Kitara's drive are all perfectly captured in the artwork. I can almost see it animated.

    The story itself has all the great personality quirks - Sokka lost none of his fun and for once, feels less buffoonish here. If anything, he and Toph take center stage in most of the story as he does detective work and Toph just rushes right into things. Aang, Kirara, and Suki are along for the ride, but it is a fun one and captures all the spark of the original TV series writing.

    In all, a great story that is true to the Avatar world and wonderful fun. It's not as serious as Korra's world but that playfulness makes for a very fun read. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

    These felt like the characters from the show. Well done!

    Great volume, it has all of your favorite hits: a Toph-heavy story, Sokka's investigator hat from the Avatar Day episode, Sokka's Mr. Fire disguise from the Fire Nation dance party episode, and NO Aang-Katara smoochie-smoochie. A little Sokka-Suki smoochie-smoochie though.

    The gang gets to the bottom of the bender vs. non-bender conflict simmering in Cranefish Town, and the tension builds. It got awfully dark with the inclusion of the phrase "They will not replace us". I don't think I have seen

    The gang gets to the bottom of the bender vs. non-bender conflict simmering in Cranefish Town, and the tension builds. It got awfully dark with the inclusion of the phrase "They will not replace us". I don't think I have seen the Avatar series reflect current sociopolitics quite so resoundingly as this. I will chalk that up to Faith Hicks' excellent writing.

    Looking forward to the release of volume 3 later this year! At some point I hope that the series of graphic novels will end; as much as I love more time with these characters, I really don't need a complete accounting of the decades in between The Last Airbender and Korra. The final page brings up a big issue bridging the two series, possibly pointing to a planned end to the written series? Who am I kidding, as long as there are sufficient readers/buyers, they will probably keep putting these volumes out. I am supremely grateful that at least they are faithful to the original show, in tone, character, and quality.

    Great graphic novel.

    This was a great addition into the story of ‘Imbalance’. Even though the ‘villain’ was predictable, I enjoyed reading about the changing dynamics between the main players of this story. Benders vs. Non-Benders was a conflict I was always interested in, and it’s great to see a story focusing on each point of view.

    I especially enjoyed Sokka and his returning ‘costumes’ (Wang Fire might be one of my favourite disguises of all time), as well as Toph, and the beginning of her futur

    Even though the writer has changed, I’m glad they are continuing with the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics. It’s great for my nostalgia.

    I've said this before and I'll say it again, it's so interesting seeing how we went from the ending of

    I really like seeing how they handle the power struggle between the benders and the non-benders.

    Seeing the gang in action, being just so

    and yet more mature and grown-up and wiser is delightful and fills my heart.

    Yet, I still have that small problem of not completely liking the art style, which is kinda important in a comic. I'm, certainly, more used to it now than I was in the first issue but still not a complete fan of it.

    I just liked the other one better.

    Can't wait to see what happens in the last issue.

    _______________

    I love the themes that are treated in this!

    RTC!

    Time to catch up to this before I have to read many of them XD

    I wanted to read it just as it came out, but, alas, life got in the way and it isn't until now that I have the time to do so. Which is a bit sad because now I don't remember all that well what was going on.

    But well, comics are nice to read so I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy it.
