Nickelodeon is preparing to air Legend of Korra Book 2 in the near future.

Back at last summer's Comic Con, co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko machine gunned some teaser facts about what's to come

  • Team Avatar will travel to the Southern Water Tribe.
  • Concept art for the Southern Air Temple was also shown
  • Book Two, called Spirits will take place six months after the events of book one
  • It will explore and even visit the Spirit World with a look at how the "Avatar" lineage began
  • Korra was previewed traveling through a storm to find a glowing iceberg very reminiscent to the iceberg Aang was trapped in.
  • New costumes were also showcased
  • Asami is now the head of her dad's Future Industries
  • Tenzin's brother Bumi has a larger role
  • His sister Kya is also a new regular
  • Korra's expanded family will be introduced. The creators mentioned that Korra was inspired by MMA fighter Gina Carano, which explains her build.

Hello everyone! I'm proud to announced that the sequel to Avatar: the Last Airbender - The Promise is being released today. Amazon and Barnes and Nobles are having it on April 2 while Right Stuf has it with a special discount, 33% off Dark Horse graphic novels until March 21.

For those who are new to these trilogy comic book series, I recommend reading the the Promise trilogy before reading the Search.

The Promise takes place after the war where Fire Lord Zuko and Avatar Aang have to deal with aftermath of the war, moving Fire Nation colonies that are in the Earth Kingdom.

This series of digests rejoins Aang and friends for exciting new adventures, beginning with a faceoff against the Fire Nation that threatens to throw the world into another war, testing all of Aang's powers and ingenuity!

Story by Gene Luen Yang and Art by Gurihiru.

The Search is about Fire Lord Zuko searching for his mother. Fans will finally find out what happened to her.

Crunchyroll has some preview shots. I arranged in order. Since it's not a manga, it's read from left to right just to inform you. I had the same confusion when I read the Promise Part 1 for the first time.

Thank you and please support the creators and enjoy the books!

For those who are new to Legend of Korra, here is a synopsis written by Wales.

Synopsis

Seventy years after the Hundred Years War, Avatar Aang has passed on and the time has come for the new Avatar to be selected. Finding a young waterbender named Korra, it is evident she is the new Avatar as she sets off to begin her training of the four elements. Already having mastered fire, earth, and water at a remarkably early age, she has one element left to master: air. With a mass shortage of airbenders in the world, the responsibility is left to a man who knew Aang too well: his youngest son Tenzin. However, Tenzin cannnot train Korra in the South Pole so she must relocate to Republic City; the iconic city Aang and Fire Lord Zuko created to be a center of peace in the world between benders and non-benders.

However, Korra quickly discovers that beneath the beauty of the city lies the underbelly of crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to tear republic city apart. Knowing that her responsibilities involve keeping the city peaceful, she discovers new allies in the form of pro-bending brothers Mako and Bolin and an even greater threat than she ever could have imagined. The leader of The Equalists, Amon. Behind the mask is a scarred man who has a power that makes even the quick tempered and fierce Avatar crumble to her knees.
