^ I don't believe you.

What distant rock do you live on that Bookdepository can't reach you? They ship for free to pretty much anywhere in the world.

I must pay a basic tax for transportation anyways. For a free transportation it is 2000HUF if the pack comes from the EU and can go up to 10000HUF (usually in the case of packs from the USA) if it comes from elsewhere. So getting the book from a foreign store is a bad business for me  Cheesy...

In that case, Bookdepository.com is €7.52 for the book plus 2000HUF taxes.

€14 isn't that much. I bet there are American shops where you'd pay more.

Oh, 2000HUF is the transportation tax only. I still need to pay the sales tax and some other stuff. But it will maybe stop at 30 Euro or such. A relatively good buy, but i need to wait for a better exchange rate.

Thanks for the tip anyways!

Hah! You guys are the lucky ones! For me, only transportation would cost nearly four times the cost of the book  (~2500HUF for the book, ~9000HUF for transportation) Cheesy.
Try german Amazon. It's 6 euro for shipping for one package regardless for how many goods are in there. You can also get Artbook and Lost Adventures.

And of course it's in Europe.

I am getting all my comics and video games from there, and i'm not even in Europe.

it in their best interest to keep these books coming. its something for the old fans to enjoy their favorite characters  while making some new ones in TLOK.

and I really do think the comics will do well. amazon will help a lot in that aspect. as much as buying from a shop is awesome, most people will get it online, which is great as well. after i read mine i will most likely write a quick review for the amazon page. i know how much those persuade me to buy, so i hope i can help someone pick one up as well

^^^Speaking of continuing the story, I wonder if Korra herself will have a comic, especially about her early years of Avatar training. :?

But in any case, I hope I can find a store with it. It was a scavenger hunt finding the last comic book in my area and I'd hate to order online. xD

I know of no comic book shops in my area (I was never, ever a geek for comic books) and I can't just ask my dad for his debit card number to order online ("What are you buying? What is this 'Avatar'? You are wasting my money!") so whenever I have money, I mosey on down to the local Barnes and Noble and order online from there at the customer service desk. Been doing that since I got the Avatar Art Book. Cheesy

Probably given that parts 2 and 3 will not leak a month in advance.

I'm hope that we will get the full list for all books soon.

But hear is Dark Horse take on it.

^ "Fantastic collection of 4 of the single Earth Chronicles series."

So I suppose it's a new version of the "The Tales of" series? I'm not sure...


EDIT: Ah, found it.

Earth Kingdom Chronicles
- Journeys Through the Earth Kingdom - This is a collection of 4 of the 6 Earth Kingdom Chronicles (Aang, Azula, Toph, & Sokka). If you want them all you will need to purchase Zuko & Katara separately. These look pretty promising as they are written in diary format, which means they should have insight into what the characters were thinking during the second season.

Quote
In this collection of four books, Aang, Azula, Toph, and Sokka tell about their exciting and eye-opening journeys through the Earth Kingdom. This amazing collection is a great way to gear-up for the summer 2010 movie The Last Airbender--it's sure to be a hit!

Well.... Undecided

I remember reading that once. This book is also the reason my library card has been blocked because I failed to return it in time. It was pretty good. Only thing I didn't like was the fact that Toph story was written in present tense the whole time. Don't know why, but that bugged me more than it should have. Tongue
