    While the election for Earth Empire is drawing closer Kuvira’s trial for her crimes against the world are beginning. Only when one commander in the Earth Empire refuses to surrender Korra, Asami, Mako and Bolin and they have to make a drastic decision that can put everything in jeopardy.

    This comic basically takes place shortly after the

    series ended and continues with Zhu Li as president of Republic City.

    King Wu has announced that a democratic election is about to take place which will change the unbalanced fate of the Earth Empire. But there is one commander who is disrupting this plan.

    After Kuvira surrendered and is now forced to face the tenants of her crimes she wasn’t expecting that her part wasn’t played yet. There is something that needs to be done.

    How freaking soft are Korra and Asami?? It just brings out a huge grin on my face whenever I see them interacting with each other.

    Team Avatar is back together for this special mission! Even King Wu is joining their forces. It actually felt a bit like the old days and it was great to see how strong the friendship between all of them is. I’ve never been much of a fan of Mako, but I like him an awful lot more as a character now that he’s not dating Korra and Asami anymore and is actually very supportive of their friendship and a good friend of theirs. I’d say that’s a great development in his character. Also I need to point out that I adore Bolin okay, he needs to be praised as well.

    I need to add in some judging Korra in here.

    This issue deals with some heavy topics involving politics and war, and how far commander Guan is willing to go to get what he wants. And he doesn’t bend easily. For a moment it made me think that Kuvira genuinely wasn’t as bad as she was during book 4, but only for a moment. Because Kuvira was definitely an evil and corrupted dictator, and commander Guan shares the same views and beliefs that Kuvira used to.

    Tension is rising as the election date for the Earth Empire draws closer and it appears to be falling to shambles. Luckily Korra and Asami support each other through this and have each other’s back until the end. Can y’all see how much in love these two are with each other? I have no words for it.

    I need to say that

    this was illustrated by

    and I love her artstyle which still feels very close to that of Irene.

    Guess now all I have to do is to patiently wait for Part Two to drop.

    The Korra graphic novels continue to be excellent! This one is really interesting, and it’s giving me “The Search” vibes in terms of Kuvira being the Azula of this story. Although I expect Kuvira will see much more redemption than Azula, for better or worse. The political angle of this story is probably my favorite. 5/5 stars

    Fans of the series will definitely enjoy this. It's written by one of the creators of the show and the art and coloring is right in line with the show. The Earth Kingdom has decided to hold its first democratic elections but must still deal with remnants of the army.

    Heh, solid.

    Could have used more action, though. It felt like the first episode of a whole season.

    But 'The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire, Part One' is a nice and relevant follow-up to the series, where you just have to find out where it's going. 'The Legend of Korra' comics are getting more and more political, but it's never boring, nor is it overt in its allusions to certain political climates in the real world.

    Heh, solid.

    Could have used more action, though. It felt like the first episode of a whole season.

    But 'The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire, Part One' is a nice and relevant follow-up to the series, where you just have to find out where it's going. 'The Legend of Korra' comics are getting more and more political, but it's never boring, nor is it overt in its allusions to certain political climates in the real world. It feels like a natural progression, organic even, not a smack-on-the-head, "GET IT? GET IT? GET IT? RELEVANCE!" preachy message. Despite the politics - the teaching of the ways of a successful and/or failing democracy - there's plenty of room to breathe and enjoy a good story, with characters you care about.

    Everyone is in-character and lovely and understanding of one another. The dialogue is genuine and humourous at times. As usual, the art is great and stays true to the animated show. I barely noticed the change in artists.

    And who could neglect to mention Korrasami! The couple are a good team, and they do kiss again! Finally! Yey!

    Plus, I'm relieved that, while the comic saga seems to be building up Kuvira's redemption arc, her terrible crimes (like attempted murder, and actual murder) are not glossed over or forgotten about. Each character has good reason for not forgiving her and trusting her. I do like her - I love complex female villains; we get so little of those - but I know she shouldn't be given an easy pass. I want to see a female villain go through well-written character development and redemption, which have nothing to do with falling for a guy (seriously, in all fiction, name me one other female ex-baddie who DOESN'T change because of a guy on the good side. I don't think there are any).

    Korra is less impulsive, and more calm, level-headed and reasonable than before. It's a nice, consistent progression for her; as a person, a friend, and as the Avatar. Other shout-outs to female characters in this comic include: President Zhu Li Moon, and Naga the polar bear-dog! And of course Asami and Kuvira. Since this arc will focus on the Earth Kingdom, there will be little to no inclusion of the Air nomads and characters associated with Republic City, and will feature Suyin Beifong and her family.

    'The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire, Part One' - Too short! But I'm looking forward to Part Two.

    Final Score: 4/5
