So, if we go with the "Satoru is Lin's father" and "Satoru is an ancestor of the Sato's" theories, does this make Lin and Hiroshi half-siblings?  Shocked

Satoru apparently means "To know" or "To understand". It seems these will be his character traits. Maybe he and Sokka will have a mutual understanding of each other since Sokka is an inventor as well in some aspects. Things will get hostile when they fight for Toph's affections by trying to build her the best invention ever.

And then, Satoru is a red herring and by the time Satoru and Sokka finished their feud, Toph's prince is already carrying her away on a white horse while she punch him in the arm.

Guys, my Rift Part 1 is already on its way! Wooohooo, it is time to count the hours until it arrives  Cheesy!

Also, I think this Satoru will be a bad guy. But Scooby Doo style, so he will start as a slightly shady good guy only to be revealed as the Gaang busts his monster costume  Cheesy.

I wonder if Satoru awakened Yangchen's dark spirit? The happy-go-lucky attitude could just be the guy trying to hide how badly he screwed up.

Where did you order it from? I order from Amazon and they don't usually get it to me until a few days after release date.

Anyways, I'm not expecting Satoru to be the villain. I expect whatever happens to be his fault but it won't be on purpose and he'll help the gaang put things right.

I agree, I'm guessing Satoru dropped the ball somewhere, but I don't think he's intentionally doing anything wrong.

I will retract all my criticism of Gene Yang's work if, after Satoru's date with Toph, he (Satoru, not Gene) kills himself on-panel. Bonus points for it being right in front of Toph.

Or the dark spirit attack him and then say something like "Nah, it's okay. You didn't even knew how he looked like, muhaha" and then warp away to kick puppies.
Bonus point if he let Toph hanging on something to confuse her before warping away.

That Satoru is really obviously going to be a problem. The plot is about technology defiling sacred land, and he is the one dealing with that business. And he was really accommodating to the main characters when he was introduced. Maybe Toph will gravitate towards him because he goes against tradition in her eyes or something, seeing as she had great issues with it.

Didn't they do the Technology vs Nature issue back in the Northern Air Temple episode? Why are they doing it again?

The biggest question in ATLA since ever. Will Yangchen have a white or AN orange wedding dress?

^^I don't think it's technology vs. nature, but more like technology vs. tradition. That's also what they went for in the "we must forge our own path" path they took in the Book 2 finale, and I think that is also going to be what Aang and Toph's probable rift will be, judging by that "That's just how it's done." flash back.

Norther Air Temple wasn't really technology vs. nature. Nature didn't really play a part in it. Northern Air Temple was more about, as ideae said, technology vs. tradition. The episode dealt with whether Teo and friends had a right to live in the Temple since it wasn't theirs and they were defiling what Aang considered sacred.

^Still, it's been done before in AtLA and in a way that was more emotional (Aang's former Air temple). Honestly, I think I'm going to like this comic simply because I expect nothing from the plot or characters and I want to read this for two things: Toph and having my heart crushed by canon destroying Yangchen/SLF ship (is it a coincidence that canon destroys ships?).

Amusingly enough... yes.  Using "canon" to refer to authoritative rules and works dates back well into the middle ages (and has nothing to do with cannons), while "ship" derives from "relationship."

Canon doesn't need to sink ships, anyway... it just tends to happen when fandom floats ships that canon could never allow.  XD;

Hopefully, the tradition versus modern debate takes a backseat once the Gaang start digging into the festival's history and Toph's character arc gets going. I imagine the factory is just the beginning, before a much bigger can of worms opens dealing with Yangchen's dark spirit.

Maybe Yangchen wears an orange wedding dress while SLF is a bride in white?

Does anyone wish for Toph to reconcile with her parents in this story? Sure, she may have written a letter to them in the series but would she talk to them face to face after a year or two? How do her parents feel about her? Do they regret how they raised Toph? Are they still stubborn or have they disowned her because they are embarrassed (it does happen in noble families).

Whatever the case is I hope it's addressed since we are going to learn about Toph in this comic and possibly Book 3 since Lin is her daughter.
