Maiko was ruined by DA PRUMIZE.

I mean, I'm not implicated in Shipping that much but the Maiko break-up frustrated me to no end.

I can't think of anything clever to say.

I would have been fine with it if it was set up well but it just kinda came out of nowhere. It wasn't justified. Gene should have written more Maiko stuff to lead up to the break up instead of focusing 3/4 of part two on Toph and Sokka's pointless shenanigans.

Part 2 of the Promise is the only comic that I dislike.

It felt like fillers, especially because the metalbending school plot could've be a minicomic, I mean, we're dealing with a crisis over the colony and stuff, who cares about all this Toph's subplot when it seems that a war will happen ? it look like Gene had no idea about what he was going to do with Toph and Sokka and just added the metalbending school to give importance to them.

Yeah. It came across as filler for Toph and Sokka and nothing more. It wasn't the good type of filler either..

It also doesn't help that I don't like the way Gene writes Toph.

I think Gene writes Aang, Katara, and Sokka just fine but when it comes to Toph...I don't know, its like he takes her most annoying traits and turns them up to eleven.

In the comics Toph just comes across as a little to cocky and bratty,, more so then she did in the actual show...and she annoyed me in the show. In the comics she makes me want to bang my head against the wall sometimes.

It's really the only reason that, even though it's plot is more well told then The Promise, The Rift is so far the least favorite series for me.

I just can't stand Toph in it. At least in the Promise she had a minimal role in parts 1 and 3.

I'm kinda hoping that the next trilogy is about Aang, Katara, and Sokka returning to help rebuild the South (the two sisters in The Rift seem to be taking it in that direction) if only because there is no way Toph could fit into that storyline.

Completely agree, I hope that she won't stick around too much, not to offense her fans or anything but it's true that she's way more bratty than anything.

To me it was the other way round. I didn't care about the colony plot because I knew how it would end and where it would go from there. I cared about the Toph plot because I didn't know what would happen (at least not for sure) and Toph is my favourite character in AtLA. That's why I think the decision to add those two was for people like me who don't care about stuff when their know exactly how they end.

When it comes to these comics, all I want to know is whether Suki's story about the origins of the Kyoshi Warriors in the Free Sukka Comic was the real deal or a very smart narrative window to Suki's background.

I'd say yes. I think they're creator-approved and generally written to be canon.

Well it is confirmed in that Mai will be in the next comic trilogy. I'm sure they will end up together at the end. I do agree That Zuko's relationship with Mai needed more time in The Promise, but perhaps the new comics can fix that. The Rift actually fixed my greatest gripe with The Promise, that was Aang disconnecting himself from Roku.
