The comic series is broken up to 3 issues per storyline. I found this first storyline to be kind of like the author just getting their feet wet in the Avatar universe. The second story, The Search, is where it really starts to get good. But I still recommend the Promise just so you can be treated to Toph's Metal Bending school. It's perfect! There are also some other story elements that you might be sorry you missed if you skip ahead.
And, I know it's noted elsewhere, but the creators of the show work closely with the creation of this series as well.
BOY, did I love this series!!! I have a few things I wish were different -- I actually wish that Azula -didn't- join the group, I liked that she was sort of "left broken" at the end of the Airbender series, as an example. But that's pretty nitpicky, honestly. This series is fantastic. This brings up all the "what's next?" questions I had at the end of the Airbender show. Of course Prince Zuko is going to have struggles as a political leader now, and this series shows all of that stress and all of the hard choices he's faced with. Of course there are challenges with blending families. This series is smart, mature, funny, and doesn't take the easy way out with any of the issues it tackles -- issues affecting smaller groups, and issues affecting huge-world-scale stuff.
Granted, I'm coming from the show, so those of you who have been following the comics might say otherwise. This is my first ATLA comic.

Yeah yeah,I know,it's about Zuko...,again but still,it's all good.
I like Toph and her down to earth attitude,the way she explains fireworks
to Sokka.Not forgetting the lovely Katara and the way she levels her attackers
when she and Aang visit Yu Dao.It started with Katara just wanting to put out
the small fire in Aang's clothing,ha ha.
All great stuff with the usual battles,failed diplomacy,and family 'doom and gloom'.
Excellent artwork of course and some great dialoque along with the renowned facial
expressions.Women worriors make up at least 50% of the characters and deservedly so.
What would Avatar be without the Women worriors,right ?
So 10/10 for Avatar,the last airbender,as if anything less than 10 was even possible...
I've taken a star off because I was disappointed at how short this was for the price. I'm suppose to pay £6-7 for each part that I could read in half an hour. I know this is fully coloured as opposed to black and white manga but I feel that the content didn't warrant the price. However, I'm still a sucker and I'll be eagerly awaiting the next instalment since it does take roughly 6 months for each part to be released.
After reading, I can say it's really great! As an avid fan at this point I was keeping my eyes and fanboy-sense peeled for anything that was out of order with the canon, or things likes characters doing/saying things they wouldn't in the show, and it was pretty tight! It was co-written by the show's creators though, so that'll be why. It definitely does the job nicely of extending the series, and so far it's set up an interesting plot - one that isn't just black and white, good and evil, which is always nice to see. As long as they stay on track and stay true to the world of the show as they have so far, this is going to end up being an awesome set of books that I look forward to reading.
The only things I'm not thrilled about is that the books are being released very slowly (luckily I chose the right time to buy this one, since book 2 is coming out this month, but after that I'll have to wait with the rest of the fandom), so the story's going to be left hanging and incomplete for long stretches of time, which is unfortunate because it's going to leave a nagging feeling in the back of my mind for months (especially after the actual ending of TLA rounded the story off so nicely). That, and Amazon's price is a little high considering how short the book is (I tried to pace myself to make it last but it's hard not to finish the whole thing in 20-30 minutes, no exaggeration).
Still, lovely art that really pops, nice writing, I look forward to more! Definitely worth a buy if you miss the TLA characters like I do.
A lot of people will think this is just a kids series but its very political, extremely fun, sometimes very moving and a bit spiritual as well. I think this is great for both, adults and children!
