The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire, Part One: 08/01/19

The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire, Part One

The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire, Part One by Michael Dante DiMartino and Michelle Wong revisits the political unrest in the Earth Kingdom. While the kingdom is preparing for its first democratic election, there is a holdout in one of the districts. Korra is forced by circumstance to work with Kuvira to talk down this remaining warlord.

As this is the first part of the next trilogy, the emphasis is on the set up. There's time spent on Kurvira's crimes as well as hearing the main character's thoughts on the election and on Kuvira's reformation.

Then there's the journey to the Earth Kingdom. There's the initial confrontation and the first test of Kuvira as an ally. Things don't go well. People over react and Kuvira loses much of the trust she had.

Volume two, which comes out in October will probably cover the aftermath of that first confrontation. Kuvira will probably be read as even more evil than she was in the initial story arc but will under extraordinary circumstances and personal sacrifice prove herself part of the team.

Four stars
