If you have read Turf Wars, Part 1 and want to speculate on what happens next in Parts 2 & 3 with fellow fans, you can do so here. As usual, all forum rules apply.

So, has anybody been looking for any news lately? Well, I have a little:

We have yet another interview, but this time there is something new at the end, the cover for the third part of Turf Wars:
http://ew.com/books/2017/08/08/legend-of-korra-comic-team-talks-korrasami-queer-representation/

And a little something from Koh’s blog:

No idea if this is also relevant for part 2 or 3, but it part 1 at least we can play a little game of where’s Waldo with the new named extra, Jargala.

We also have some development sketches for the covers.

She pops up in the first fight scene between the triads. She's a member of the Creeping Crystals, if I remember correctly?

Interesting that Koh was originally going to draw the covers, until they got Heather Campbell to do it. Maybe they wanted something that looked closer to the show for the cover?

Not really a fan of that Part 3 cover. I thought the first two were better, but on this one some of the faces look a bit wonky? (Mako especially.) Also this is nitpicking, but I think Asami's eyes are the wrong colour?

Have to agree with Nausicaa with the 3rd cover and the faces. They just look kind of stiff and unnatural. Also is it just me or does Asami look like Azula in that cover? xD

Yes! She looks weirdly like Azula there. ...Plot twist?

I am also not a big fan for the cover art for the 3rd one. Asami does kind of look like Azula there. And is it just me or does Mako look like Avatar Wan there?

Mako looks awful in the third cover. but they can simply be early drafts so you never know.

Not much news lately, but this is certainly interesting to see in hindsight after all those odd Amazon previews:

Wow, Amazon needs to sorely update their "Preview" system if the pages are random. I can't imagine how many books have been spoiled as a result.

Yeah, an algorithm that limits things to the first 30% of pages should be easy to code. Or give publishers the option to limit things to one of a set of percentages (25, 50, 75, 100), or even type in their own (I would specify 37% of any book I publish).

But Amazon doesn't need to care, so they won't ever care. That's the benefit of being the biggest. Everyone else just has to get out of their way or get run over.

I hope that the angry rock spirit allies itself with the villian who's name I can't remember. He could use his lizard look to fool everyone into believing that he's actually a spirit and beat up Korra with his new army of angry spirit followers and gangsters. I also want to see korrasami torn apart, it pains me to read through that junk. Please give other characters spotlight focus! Mako and Bolin driving around being policemen would be better than the first book and Mako needs to redeem himself after being fodderized, the poor fool can't catch a break and I'm getting flash backs to Book 4... Dark times on the sidelines...

I want a rematch.

Oh and actually show Jinora being a master who doesn't need help taking out random mooks.

Maybe if he just stand side-way, where the spirits can only see his mutated face, he has a chance of convincing them.

Also, why are spirits always so douchy ? They keep being like "respect us ningens" but when something bad happens, they're like "TO THE HILLS"

That might not be necessary lmao. Painted Lady, Iroh and Hundun are just as much spirit as the pokemon esque spirits. So with half his face being lizardy he can sell it even more along with receiving +3 intimidation points for each mortal he fools.

Avatar news from the New York Comic Convention was apparently rather sparse, but at least we finally got a release date for part 3 of Turf Wars:
http://avatarthelastairbenderonline.com/turf-wars-part-3-release-date-is-june-13th-2018/
It will be released on the 13th of June 2018.
