Aang and the gang are back in this 230-page compilation of mini-comics of their mis-adventures, as they made their way to fight the fire lord. Chronologically in order, the book was separated into 3 chapters: the water, earth and fire kingdoms. The length of the mini-comics ranged from 2 to 6 pages long. Every comic were stand alone reads and showcased quick adventures that happen "behind the scenes" of the cartoon. Humor, that the show was famous for, was evident within the panels. They were witty with a little bit of irony thrown in. Even if you don't laugh out loud at the gangs' antics, you will definitely smile. The pages are tight and glossy. Paper quality is similar to textbook pages. The colors and lines are sharp, clear and defined. The artwork was similar to the original style from the show but there were a couple of comics were slightly different. For most people, the font was a decent size and comparable to the standard size of comic books. If you have a hard time reading smaller font, it might be an issue. In the back, there are a few pages dedicated to the people, involved with the show, with a quick bio and some sketches (if you have the artbook, it was just a reprint of some of the pages).

If you are like me and came into "The Last Airbender" late, and never got a chance to read the comics, now is your chance to get the reprint. Even if you have read them, this is a great way to keep the comics in one place in one slim book. Even if you aren't a fan, this book is entertaining enough to hold its own. It was a fast read but you will definitely go back to your favorites and read it over and over again. Should you get it? Definitely.
