Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Lost Adventures is a massive collection of short stories from the animated series fans have fallen so in love with. After the popularity bump that came when Avatar: The Last Airbender moved to Netflix, I was inspired to read through as much of the comics as possible. So far, it’s been absolutely worth it!
For perspective, there are literally twenty-six stories in this collection. It’s a lot to go through, but also totally worth it. They vary from being quick, short, and happier moments, to deeper and more integrated stories, tying in with larger plots or events.
Though more often than not, they really are just quick vignettes from the world and characters. Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with that. I know I enjoyed it, though admittedly I did like some of the stories more than others (not all that surprising, really).
What I loved about this collection is that it seemed to give a moment to each of the primary characters. Not just the core of Team Avatar, but many of the secondary characters as well. And yes, that does include Momo and Appa! So have no fear on that front.
