219 – The Promise

The Promise

Since we’re all super huge Avatar: The Last Airbender fans, we thought we’d give the post-show comics a try, starting with “The Promise” by Gene Luen Yang. We discuss this comic’s awesome success at carrying over the tone of the show, dealing with heavy topics like colonization and cultural appropriation. We also discuss some misses like questionable Aang character moments and disappointment in the resolution. Plus, we converse about DC’s Convergence event. For more episodes, go to www.WelcometoComics or support the show over at www.patreon.com/WelcometoComics. Next week: “The Search” by Gene Luen Yang.
