It’s been a long time since we’ve heard an update about Dark Horse’s announcement that they would continue the beloved cartoon The Legend of Korra through the comics — over two years, to be exact. Still, better late than never, and the news that the comic will finally arrive in June 2017 is good news indeed.
The first collection will be called Turf War and follow-up immediately after the events of Season Four, just as Korra and Asami had recognised their feelings for each other. Now they have returned from the spirit world to find New Republic City in chaos, with the assistance of a giant spirit portal inside it.
Turf Wars is only the first volume of a planned three-graphic novel series from show co-creator Michael DiMartino, with “feedback” from Bryan Konietzko, the other co-creator, and art by Irene Koh. And apparently it will be out in June of next year. We’re holding you to that, guys.
