I first came across The Last Airbender cartoons in January of 2010. I remember I was flipping channels and stopped on Nickelodeon because there was a bald kid running around manipulating the elements, and it peaked my interest. I only planned to watch a little bit, but a few hours and episodes later, I was hooked. Of course, I came into the re-runs of the third book, fire, so I was completely lost, but Netflix comes is very handy for a crisis like that. And, Netflix was running them through instant play, no less, so I had instant gratification and watched the entire series in a few weeks. Imagine my surprise, and excitement, when I found out there was a movie coming out by my favorite director, M. Night Shyamalan! Of course, I HAD to go see it, and I tried to buy up all the comics, but Barnes and Nobel was all out, so reading the comics never did happen, but oh well, I saw the cartoon series and the first movie (which I did love-acting abilities aside, the effects made it worth it, in my opinion), and I was in heaven. The other day I came across The Last Airbender: The Lost Adventures on Netgalley, via Dark Horse Comics, and instantly requested it because, though I'm not really a comic book person, I had originally wanted the comics for the series, and this comic book has bonus materials! Of course, I highly enjoyed it; the adventures are funny/interesting and gave me a new perspective, making me want to watch the entire series/movie all over again (and I probably will soon). I really did enjoy this comic book, and recommend it to all fans of The Last Airbender, but be forewarned, if you haven't seen/read the series in its entirety, some of this comic book won't make sense, since it jumps around from place to place, adventure to adventure.

I love the Avatar series! I personally think it's one of the most thought out and beautiful cartoons on tv right now. So when I saw the opportunity to read this I just had to try, luckily Dark Horse and NetGalley let me and I'm so happy they did!This is a must for any Avatar fan! These stories take place in between the episodes and are great additions to the show. I admit there were times where I wanted to know how they did certain things and a lot of those questions were answered here. Not to mention some really great "what-ifs" were answered too. Some of these were simply awesome! For instance have you ever wondered what would happen if Bumi and Toph fought? How they managed to get a Fire Nation Navy ship in the third season? Or maybe you were wondering what happens when Aang gets a cold...Trust me these are worth reading. They are really enjoyable stories but you won't find a lot of the same depth in most of them. There is even a cute story about the bender-creation contest that the creators held, which I thought was amazing for them to do.The book is separated into the seasons of the show and the stories in chronological order which really helps you place where each little story goes in the timeline. Some of the artwork is very familiar and others are little more sketchy and rough around the edges, but for me it didn't diminish the book any. it actually made it more enjoyable because you can tell just how many people actually put work into this series. At the end they include some numerous sketches and some stunning background artwork for the show, which is a nice added bonus for those who like the show visually.I recommend this for fans of the show, especially the younger ones who are sure to enjoy it. I'll definitely be buying this once I get the chance.

I picked this selection because my son is huge Avatar fan. I've watched some of the cartoon episodes and the movie with him but I can't say I have followed it well. I can't think of anytime I have read an Avatar book either.Knowing that, I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic novel. This is a collection of stories that have not been previously published. They touch on parts of the Avatar story but do not tell it. I will say it helps to have some background knowledge of the characters and the world of the last airbender but you do not have to be familiar with the plot to enjoy this collection.The tales are short and humorous. They would entertain any reader but young readers may find some of the wording too advanced (mostly the Asian names). However, the story lines are simple and enjoyable. Though the series revolves around Aang, a male character, there are a couple of strong female characters that would entice any adventurous girl. I think my favorite tale had to do with the two girls having a girl's day out. One doesn't want to go to do girly stuff so the other goes overboard with being tough. In the end, they learn that girl stuff can be fun and tough.This is a must have for any Avatar fan and a great selection for those who like Nickelodeon's action and comedy mixes.

The stories are pretty good, but they are short. If you are okay with that; then you will enjoy the book.

The book is made up of 1 to 2 page short stories based on all the episodes of the entire series. Though each story allows you to reminisce, there isn't much content to allow the reader to get into the story.

Even though I dont have I am talking about when I got hooked I was tring to find something to watch and I stopped because I saw action. Ilove action so I got hooked. It was funny it had action it was amazing and itwas like I couldnt take my eyes off the screen! Im just saying all in all if you dont warch it you need to start. Exept the Legends of Kora is too serious they need to put more humor in it and its hard to understand. I mean why she always so serious now when she was little than she was kind of funny she said" IM THEavatar and you have to deal with it" and started bending three elements.

I remember coming across Avatar. I adored it and when the series was over I started to brake down crying so now I have probably watched every episode 5 times but I am looking for some episodes.

I really enjoyed this Avatar book! It's a collection of many comics, new and old. Some are from things like magazines and other older editions, but many are new. It was wonderful to read through the first time, and I still will go back and read a comic now and then, but it's not something I pay too much attention to anymore. It looks great on my shelf (which I'm fine with, I love to have anything Avatar!) and it's not hardcover but it is nice and shiny and sturdy! One thing that threw we off was a lot of the inconsistent artwork. Many different artists worked on this book, so some of the art is great, while some is not so great. Also, make sure that you know and understand the whole series, because the adventures jump and skip around (though the comics are split into Book One, Two, and Three, and then there's a little section in the back with two extra comics that don't really go into any specific Book). Overall I really recommend this to any Avatar fan, young or old, male or female!
