Waiting on Wednesday *33*

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly 'hump-day' feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where us book bloggers get together & spotlight an upcoming release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick for this week:

Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Search Part 2 

Release Date: July 23rd, 2013

Author: Gene Luen Yang


In search of their long-lost mother, Fire Lord Zuko and his deadly and insane sister, Azula, have brought Avatar Aang and his friends into a mysterious forest... but what they discover within may be more than they can face. Will they, too, be lost in these woods forever? Written and drawn by the creative team behind the best-selling Avatar: The Promise, Gene Luen Yang and Gurihiru, in collaboration with Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, this is the ultimate continuation of Avatar and the perfect companion to Legend of Korra!

I wanted to switch things up this week, and what better way than with an exciting Manga release!  The Search - Part Two, follows Zuko, Aang and the gang as they continue their search for Zuko's mysteriously absent mother.   I absolutely loved the previous Avatar Manga Trilogy The Promise BUT I also found the cliffhangers at the end of each book to be absolute torture so again, I'll be waiting till all 3 books in The Search trilogy are out before jumping in!!  I can guarantee that once book 3 comes out at the end of October that I will devour all three - probably in one sitting :D

Thoughts?? Any fellow Avatar fans?

  5. I admit I'm not really all that familiar with the story, but my sister used to watch the anime a lot when it was on German afternoon-TV.
    I agree about the manga-tendency to cliffhangers though!! You wait forever, read it in an hour or two, and then agonize for a couple months more :P I support your decision to wait till October! Thanks for stopping by hun :)

  6. I've seen the show, but didn't know about the Manga. I really like the cover of it though.

  7. My kiddos LOVE Avatar! ;) While I have only read manga that my oldest daughter has asked me to read, I do know all about Avatar. I didn't realize it was in print (my kids watch it on tv) so I'll have to pick it up. Thanks for sharing, Micheline! :)

  8. I'm with you in loving all things Avatar, but I've yet to read these books! Your love for the first manga trilogy is definitely encouraging me to read it though!! I miss the characters a whole bunch. Especially after seeing the way the movie RUINED them - Ugh.
