Anyone think there's hope, with the growing danger of the criminal gangs, that we'll see some of their culture and background? Like full The Godfather, Part II-style flashbacks and explorations of their code and lifestyles?

Not with the first couple of comics, I don't think. However, that does make me think of how much story potential there is in Republic City. Part of me is really surprised by how slow the comics are being released.

But it'd bring him one step closer to my "secret history with Hasook" theory  Cheesy

This would make Mako about 400% more interesting, so I'm all for it.

And you get to be Bi! And you get to be Bi! Everyone is Bi!

Seriously, I can't believe there is that much focus on this nonsense. I would've preferred if the world of Avatar was just "whatever" to people being homosexual. Now it makes the ending to Book 4 even more awkward, because Korra and Asami seemed comfortable with one another.

I'm all for the two developing their relationship in the first part of this series, but I really do not want it to bog down to "Dur, they hate us, cause they ain't us". Avatar has turned from a story about adventures and action to a political agenda driven comic.

I'm not ready to condemn it like this before the comic comes out. It might be a well-told, good-impact story that actually justifies its own existence. (Certainly, the AtLA comics have failed to offer any justification for existing beyond being More.) And it almost has to be more interesting than the Evil Amusement Park plot.

Granted, I don't think the Mike is likely to tell a particularly good version of that story given the existing setup, but as an engineer, I can't just dismiss remote possibilities.

I'm hoping that as I don't really care for the central relationship (at least, not in the material provided so far), at least I might find one of these other LGBT characters interesting/ well-handled. And I'm hoping the Evil Amusement Park thing is better than its filler-episode-sounding description.

Anyone think there's hope, with the growing danger of the criminal gangs, that we'll see some of their culture and background? Like full The Godfather, Part II-style flashbacks and explorations of their code and lifestyles?

Yeah, I hope we get a lot more Triad info. I really wish we'd gotten more on them in the show. One thing that sounds interesting is how the Triple Threats are clearly a multi-bender organisation, but the Red Monsoons and Agni Kais stick exclusively to one element. Would be interesting to see if there's reasoning for that- say, old wartime prejudices that refuse to go away, or because they originated in other countries- and how it affects their operations/ relationships to each other. (Interesting thought- is the Triple Threat Triad the only one that would have accepted both Mako and Bolin?)

Part of me is really surprised by how slow the comics are being released.

Yeah, I'm surprised by how slow it's been, considering that they announced them just a few months after the show ended. (Though... I guess they were very early in development then?) But it got delayed because the artist had to drop out, and then I think the new artist needed an extension. But it's weird considering how smoothly the ATLA comics tend to come out.

Well, 72 pages x 3 assuming that's how many books we get out of this arc. I think it's possible, but it will probably just be about the villain's motivations and background more than anything else.

Since I was posting about something else and there hasn’t been any other news we have a little picture from Koh again:

Got to wonder if Rohan will show any signs of bending, or maybe he’ll actually get to say something. After all, Tom-Tom got to talk in the comics.

Based on the available plot descriptions and interviews, the trilogy will involve-

- Pompous developer plans to turn spirit portal into amusement park
- Triads have reemerged and are fighting where the evacuated RC citizens are currently located (new characters Tokuga and Wonyong)
- Zhu Li sets her eyes on the presidency during the housing crisis
- Korra and Asami deal with their new relationship

That's quite a bit of stuff, so I'm guessing the story threads will converge in some way. (Developer has triad ties, for example, or some of the criminals will reform towards the end and help with the housing problem).

Maybe we'll get to see what its like when a child first develops bending? I could see it being a comedic mini-plot with Tenzin trying to coax Rohan into proving whether he can bend or not. I also wonder if that picture is from the second volume.

It would be kind of interesting to know when bending usually starts to show itself. The earliest examples we have seen are probably Korra at age 4, but she is probably quite exceptional in that regard. Then again, we have Kiyi who with little to no training started showing bending, and she’s probably not much older that kora was. Rohan is in an age similar to Korra and most likely Kiyi too, so who knows.

Toph learned to earthbend when she was a toddler.  There's an interview on the site from about ten years ago where they talk about this. I think they said something along the lines of, if you're 5 and you haven't shown signs of bending, then you're not a bender.

Time for a little new stuff from Koh’s blog:
http://prom-knight.tumblr.com/post/161912065243/unrelated-panels-but-good-faces-i-liked-while
We have three new panels of some ladies from the comic book.

We also have a convention schedule from Koh:
http://prom-knight.tumblr.com/post/161862389993/consigning-schedule-2017
And a slightly more detailed post about the Queer Comic Expo:
http://prom-knight.tumblr.com/post/161788323183/2017-queer-comics-expo
This certainly seems to be in the spirit of the promotion that there has been about the comic so far.

^yeah they're odd. Kya seems to suffer from 'anime mouth' a bit, and while the last one is pretty, it just isn't korra?

The mouth thing is true, and I think another problem is that anime emotes seem to be creeping their way into the designs. I'm pretty sure that stupid raised bang that Koh has added to some of Korra's pictures may become emotive.
