    I loved all of the different story plots in this issue! Toph had to deal with her past as Aang tried to preserve the traditions of his nation. We saw a couple of bad-ass Katara moments as well as seeing Sokka shine! I love when the present coincide with past events (which happened in the last story line as well). I'm always happy to learn more about Air Nomad history and while this doesn't have quite the same exciting mystery as The Search had, it is still compelling.

    "Bad things always happen to my poor cabbages when you're around!" And the cabbage man is back! This dude always makes me laugh. Poor man though, his cabbages are always suffering XD. I'm still pissed with Toph's attitude, but well, nobody is perfect I suppose. I feel bad for her because her dad is an idiot. I hope we have more action in the next, and last, issue.

    I liked this one more than the first! It actually made me laugh a few times. As in Part One, I appreciate how mature the themes are, from conflict between tradition and modernization, to the nods at industrialization.

    This one is definitely much better than the first one. Toph feels more in-character, and Sokka is actually doing smart stuff this time around. I also really liked Yangchen's story; that was neat. And, as I did in the first volume, I really liked the Air Acolytes. I think that the minor splitting of Team Avatar let them each develop into themselves more. 4/5 stars.

    Highly enjoyable chapter. I deeply appreciate the way that this series has been wrapping up loose ends from the show while expanding the mythology. This volume increased the conflicts and risks to the characters, though little was resolved. I feel like the final volume will probably get the 5-star rating, the usual curse of the second entry in a trilogy. Hopefully, developments here will be seen in Legend of Korra.

    4.5 stars. This installment was fab. Not only do you get to be with the Gaang again, there's a cameo from a very dear and special character, baaackstory, Sokka being priceless, and a stupid cliffhanger to boot. Not a whole lot more you could ask for, to be honest. 4.5 stars. This installment was fab.

    Okay I actually enjoyed this one a lot more than I did the first part! It does have me wondering a few things it mentios that the Southern Water Tribe 'hasn't been doing all that well' but at the end of Book 1 Master Pakku and other benders were going to fix the broken bonds between both tribes.  We also know that Master Pakku went because of what happened when we see the White Lotus.  So this has me confused as to what happened in the Southern Water tribe and am also intrigued with the next stor Okay I actually enjoyed this one a lot more than I did the first part!

Also Lao was just such a mean father I mean Toph has separated from them but she has accomplished so much! Am intrigued to see how this wraps up!

    I love Toph. I love that we’re getting more about Avatar Yangchen, and I super love that they’re continuing the whole use a different style when telling a story technique.

    Review for all three parts under the cut. (view spoiler)[WOOOOH I’M DONE! Part one: OH SHIT TOPH’S DAD SHOWED UP. Though I can’t really say I feel very bad for her; I can’t wait for her to grow up and stop being so disrespectful and flippant to what’s important to the people she calls her friends. Speaking with Aang about the fact that the refinery is the future he’s working towards could have gone much more gently and respectfully. It is VERY rude to disrespect another’s culture and traditions. T Review for all three parts under the cut. (view spoiler)[WOOOOH I’M DONE! Part one: OH SHIT TOPH’S DAD SHOWED UP.

Speaking with Aang about the fact that the refinery is the future he’s working towards could have gone much more gently and respectfully. It is VERY rude to disrespect another’s culture and traditions. Toph is in no place to mock or insult it. So I’m VERY VERY CURIOUS TO SEE IF SHE’LL ACTUALLY GROW A LITTLE NOW. Part two: Man the feels I’m feeling are so conflicting right now. I feel bad for Toph because of her dad but FUCK SHE STILL COULD LEARN A MILLION TONS OF RESPECT. Aang is right in that Toph may have had a point about clinging too hard to the past but she STILL had no right to disrespect another’s culture like that. That was just plain rude and childish. But HOO BOY. CLIMAX BUILDUP. THIS IS SO GOOD. FUCK CORPORATE GREED MAN I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE EVERY ASSHOLE HERE PUT IN THEIR PLACE. Part three: Oh, Toph. Toph Toph Toph. You’re still rude as shit and have a LOT of growing up to do but somehow you always make me LIKE you again. And THEN there’s RETRIBUTION WITH HER FATHER. AND A COMPROMISE BETWEEN GROWING TOWARDS THE FUTURE AND KEEPING THE PAST TRADITIONS. AND ALL SEEMED TO WORK OUT SMOOTHLY. GOOD LORD what the world couldn’t do to learn these kinds of lessons. Overall, SO GOOD, and SO WELL DONE, and SUCH a worthy lesson to learn and perhaps most importantly to me - HOLY SHIT I’M CAUGHT UP AND CAN START KORRA NOW AS SOON AS I GET MY HANDS ON IT. OHHHHH MY GOD. I’M SO EXCITED OMFG IT’S KORRA TIIIIIME *runs off towards the sunset* (hide spoiler)]

    A wonderful middle volume to this story about the world adjusting to its new status quo! What's happened: Since the last time we saw our heroes, they've been trying to convince a refinery that they're causing pollution and need to stop. Aang is finding his feet as an Avatar who still misses a way of life that's gone, so he's throwing himself into instructing the Air Acolytes, while Toph is charging forward into a new scene that changes the rules and embraces metalbending as the way of the future. A wonderful middle volume to this story about the world adjusting to its new status quo! What's happened: Since the last time we saw our heroes, they've been trying to convince a refinery that they're causing pollution and need to stop. Aang is finding his feet as an Avatar who still misses a way of life that's gone, so he's throwing himself into instructing the Air Acolytes, while Toph is charging forward into a new scene that changes the rules and embraces metalbending as the way of the future. Aang wants balance and peace, but sometimes that comes at a cost. Confronting Toph's father at the refinery feels like a mistake. He spurns her, pretends not to recognize her, and turns away. She and Aang don't want to leave the refinery until they accomplish their mission, but now they're being confronted by the Rough Rhinos--the muscle that will handle them if they don't comply. The refinery's management just wants to start production up again after the earthquake that just hit and now these kids are making it hard. Sokka, Katara, Aang, and Toph, with the Air Acolytes, must face these guys. Aang finds himself instructing Toph not to be so rough because the way she's taking her anger out on her opponents seems dangerous to him. She doesn't want to be talked to like she's one of his acolytes and is super offended. She tosses out a funny about "didn't you hear I invented metalbending?" when a hoodlum seems baffled when she can use a chain to trap him. Toph becomes angry when one of the Acolytes listened to Aang and stopped using heavy machinery against their opponents because it might hurt them. She believes the peaceful ways Aang is teaching them are from a world that doesn't exist anymore in a world that's changed. Once the threat is dispatched, Aang decides he's going to do what he came to do: take his Air Acolytes and celebrate the festival of Yangchen. Yangchen was the last Air Nomad Avatar in the line before Aang. He's been having trouble communicating with her lately but this ritual should help. Unfortunately the tree he remembers incorporating into the ritual when he last did it with Monk Gyatso is now a stump. They enter a restaurant, which turns out to be owned by the good old Cabbage Guy! And he is NOT thrilled to see them, and also doubly offended that they brought their own food. (They agree to buy cabbage cookies for use of the space. Cabbage Merchant is still suspicious that something bad will happen to the cabbages because the Avatar is here.) Meanwhile, Toph is having it out back at the refinery. Satoru, who works for his uncle there, defends his "flunky" actions by saying his uncle was there for him in a way Toph wouldn't understand. She seeks out the boss and gets in to see her dad. He again denies her and says she's not the daughter he raised. She says she can't believe he could be so blind (I didn't really like that, even though it was supposed to be said by a blind person; usually blind people aren't so find of blindness being used as a synonym for willful ignorance or obliviousness). They discuss their issues and his refusal to acknowledge her amazing contributions to training the Avatar and starting a metalbending school. And also meanwhile, Sokka and Katara have defeated the Rough Rhinos partially through the use of ice in waterbending, and Sokka throws away a stick of dynamite that ends up exposing a secret passageway that they investigate. It's an underground mine that's been the source of the pollution and the earthquakes! But for some reason the dangerousness isn't making the workers leave. Some of them are displaced Water Tribe folks and they're pretty sullen about how things have gotten worse for them, and Katara was oblivious to it as part of the Avatar's golden team. They are forced to face dangerous conditions to make a living. Aang finally gets to have his meal in honor of Yangchen and manages to connect with her. She explains that their connection was patchy because Aang refused to take Roku's advice that one time and now their relationship is damaged, so his relationship is damaged with the whole line. This is Yanchen's festival, though, so he can connect with her. Yangchen shows Aang a flashback with her confronting a grieving spirit that attacked the city, General Old Iron, and she had to deal with him. This spirit was very close with another spirit, Lady Tienhai, and she rejected him after he didn't approve of her closeness with and protection of humans. Then over time allowing humans to have their way with the land led to Lady Tienhai's death. So General Old Iron wants to destroy humans, leaving Avatar Yangchen to negotiate with him. They came to an agreement way back then, and the ritual of Yangchen is one of the agreements they made. Sokka interrupts Toph's discussion with her father and demands that they order the mine workers out of the dangerous conditions. Toph's dad didn't even know about the mine until he goes down to investigate. But it's too late; disaster strikes (and the jerk in charge of the place indirectly contributes). The mine collapses. Sokka escapes with one of the Water Tribe women, but Katara and Toph and many others are trapped. Iron is pressing down on them and Toph's metalbending is all that's keeping them alive. I LOVE that a battle between old ways and new ways isn't so simplistic as it sounds and does not involve a guided lesson to make everyone only respect one perspective more than the other. There is so much nuance here and I love that these heavy, confusing issues are being tackled by teens who have to speak truth to power.

Satoru was a nice add in this comic (I'm going to guess that he will probably be Toph's baby daddy), it was great to see a softer side of Toph as there was only a few of those moments in the show. Lao and Toph's rekindle was sweet and I wonder if she will rekindle with her mother.. An interesting theme that flows throughout all of the comics I've read so far is the struggle between the old and new world; I thought it was perfectly done in here. Aang, especially, was prevail in that theme; He's the bridge between the spirit and human world, he was raised in the distant past but now lives in the present. He's always being torn in two places but because of his knowledge of both sides we always see him overcome his obstacles. The back ground story on why and how the festival started was great! (Once again I would love a book or something of Spirit World stories.) It was neat that we got to see a lot of Avatar Yangchen as I don't recall seeing or hearing barely anything about her in the TV show. I was tearing up when Avatar Roku and Aang rekindled, I believe the relationship between the past selves and the present is so special (view spoiler)[ I hate LOK for destroying it!! (hide spoiler)] What I didn't like was the random angry water tribe girls, I felt like they were there for extra drama, the only good thing they gave us was a look into the current state of the Northern Water Tribe.

    This felt like a typical ATLA episode, to be honest. And I laughed out loud in certain instances, which proved it. Sokka was, as always, the brains and the funny guy. Katara was the Waterebending Master we all know and love. Aang was finally able to connect with one of his past selves through the Spirit World, as well as learn why the tradition was important. Toph meets her father for the first time since she left home with the Avatar... and things don't go well. And finally, they might all die. This felt like a typical ATLA episode, to be honest.

    I continue to vastly enjoy these continued adventures with Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, Zuko and others. We get more of Toph and her past, in the form of her estranged father, catching up with her and challenging her choices. Then there is the interactions of Katara and some girls she used to know back home. Good installment!
