Dark Horse Comics has announced a new The Legend of Korra graphic novel series, continuing the story of the fan-favorite animated series. Written by series co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino and illustrated by Michelle Wong, Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire follows Dark Horse’s previous Legend of Korra graphic novel series, Turf Wars. Here’s how Dark Horse describes the new series, which features the return of animated series villain Kuvira:
On the eve of its first elections, the Earth Kingdom finds its future endangered by its past. Even as Kuvira stands trial for her crimes, vestiges of her imperial ambitions threaten to undermine the nation’s democratic hopes. However, when Korra, Asami, Mako, and Bolin disagree on the solution, drastic measures will be taken to halt a new march to war and Korra must decide whom to trust as the fate of the Earth Kingdom hangs in the balance!
The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire Part One is scheduled to hit stores in May 2019. In the meantime, check out the full cover and a preview of six pages from the book below.
