Peace on Avatar, before peace in real life

Well I have two things I have my wish list that I want to add, both involve Eska consistently, though one is for more comedy purpose and the other is more serious emotional purposes. Though both ideas can kind of happen in the same story I guess.

1) Eska meeting Opal, we already got a hint on how Eska would handle it in Book 4 during that failed Wu coronation. I just want to see the three of them together, and having Opal react to finding out what kind of girls Bolin went out with before her. It would be hilarious.

2) Korra's immediate and extended family be together and do some family stuff. Meaning Korra, Tonraq, and Senna doing something together with Desna, Eska, and Melina. I feel bad for those 3 that Unaloq choice spirits over them, and it was clear in his fight with Unaloq, that Tonraq he does care about his nephew and niece even though they are only related to his brother by his brother who has issues and resentment against. The Korra, Tonraq, and Senna are a happy loving family for the most part, the Unaloq's side was devote of that, it would be nice to extent the olive branch to the less fortunate side of the family.

A preview of Turf Wars is out and feature Korra and Asami's date in the Spirit World. It's cute. I don't want to be a perv but I think this is the first time we've seen any one from the Krew in swim wear for one panel.

The colours are great and the art style takes a little getting used to.

Eh... Asami maxed out the swimsuit fanservice in The Aftermath.

Whoops, I meant to say Korra in her swimwear. I know some people were waiting for Korra to be in swimwear for a long time.

My takeaway from that preview is that, without Mike and Bryan's blog posts, the viewer/reader would have no real clue that this is supposed to be a romantic vacation from those first few pages, as opposed to a couple of girlfriends just having fun. Which is...consistent, I suppose. Heck, I legitimately wonder at this point if Korra is even aware that Asami has the hots for her.

The art is nice.

Dragon bird spirit!

Kind of BS that Asami would be better at rock climbing. Heck, doesn't she have nails to be concerned about?

The giant rock spirit is kind of cool.

"We've been through a lot worse together" -- honest question. What exactly does Asami have in mind that Korra and her went through that is so much worse?

I think the closest we got to Korra's swimwear was that scene in Book 4 where she's in the healing pool... and you can only see her from the shoulders up. Different from the one in the comic though.

Yeah, I thought that too  Cheesy

"We've been through a lot worse together" -- honest question. What exactly does Asami have in mind that Korra and her went through that is so much worse?

Depends on what she means by 'together', I guess. In terms of being next to each other, I think the worst they've gone though together is fighting some bandits and henchmen. I guess they technically fought the Colossus together (at least, until Asami got ejected)? Otherwise, most of their worse stuff happened when they were separated.

-----------------------------

I really like the artwork, and the colouring is really nice. Also, Asami got to look dishevelled for once!

Nitpick: why does Korra apologise, when going to the Spirit World was Asami's idea?

Otherwise, most all of their worse stuff happened when they were separated.

I think this is a bit more accurate. All of the good stuff also happened when they were separated to.

I'm trying to think of how many other times I saw a man hold another man's hand while they were swimming together and neither were in need of medical attention due to a health condition so the hand holding would be to get the other person out of the water versus deep diving like how Korra is holding Asami's hand.
I am also doing a mental search for such situations that I've seen women in similar straits.

It's not a "baby, you're my forever girl" and I'm not defending it, but they might be trying something reserved here as an opener aside from how many hoops were implied to have jumped to get to this comic introduction.

The rock climbing seems like it would be in poor taste if Korra was better, perhaps? They traveled there with their bodies so bending is possible so if Korra was winning the reader might think Korra was using her bending on the rocks. Granite, I'd give the natural climbing ability to Korra even without bending perhaps the artist and writer subscribe to the school of thought that Korra is only good at bending and can't do other things to an adept degree like so many pieces of fanfiction claim.

And in terms of 'together' it could be how the group talks about them being a team when they work better far far away from each other. So maybe it was a spiritual togetherness?

And as for the nitpick...well it was Korra that tore open a portal in space-time in the first place which only happened because she reopened the original portals back in season 2 so everything bad that can happen is pretty much Korra's fault.

I think the sooner we all accept that a lot of retconning is going to have to go on with Asami's character and interactions with Korra, the faster the comic can get going.

They've been sleeping together for three years and they teamed up to defeat Amon Jr's Nightmare Engine at Simanzi. Just roll with it.

That Could Have Been Executed Better

So basically make a fanfiction. Got it, will... wait oh. I guess this is more of a "fan justification" than a fanfiction though.

I'm interested to see who the rock spirit is, though. And how they play him, especially considering he appears to be stationary. So unless he gobbles up a bunch of stupid tourists, unless he can teleport, I don't know how he would directly be a threat.

Koh has posted some additional thumbnails on her blog showing of some of her favorite expressions:

No word on what part of the comic these are from though.

Oh, and since no one else has actually posted a link to it:

Koh also provided a better look at the swimwear for the two girls. Guess we can also get a more definite answer about what Korra’s abs look like.
