About The Legend of Korra and Avatar: The Last Airbender Graphic Novels:
Dark Horse’s award-winning Avatar: The Last Airbender program has seen multiple number-one New York Times bestsellers and continues to grow. The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire Parts 1-3 is the latest series in an ongoing partnership between Nickelodeon and Dark Horse to bring fans the very best in graphic novels.
The book featured in the live reading is the first of Dark Horse's Korra graphic novels, The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One, published in summer 2017.
This three-part graphic novel series is written by Nickelodeon TV series co-creator and executive producer Michael Dante DiMartino, drawn by Irene Koh, with covers by Heather Campbell, and consultation by TV series co-creator and executive producer Bryan Konietzko.
Turf Wars begins with Korra and Asami leaving the spirit world and returning to Republic City only to find political hijinks and human vs. spirit conflict, as a pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. In order to get through it all, Korra and Asami vow to look out for each other—but first, they’ve got to get better at being a team.
