Yesterday, Dark Horse Comics announced that they would publish The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars, a trilogy of graphic novels written by Avatar: the Last Airbender co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino, illustrated by Iren Koh (Batgirl), and colored by Jane Bak with covers by Heather Campbell. Avatar co-creator Bryan Konietzko was named as a consultant on the books.
The first volume of the series will be released in June 2017. The story is solicited as follows:
Turf Wars begins with Korra and Asami leaving the spirit world and returning to Republic City only to find political hijinks and human vs. spirit conflict, as a pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. In addition, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal brawl at the city’s borders where hundreds of evacuees have relocated. In order to get through it all, Korra and Asami vow to look out for each other—but first, they’ve got to get better at being a team.
Turf Wars is advertised as an “official continuation of The Legend of Korra” TV series. That can only mean one thing.
Korrasami ships, raise the masts and get ready to set sail!
