    You needn't create a full vacuum. It would be far more efficient to simply bend all the air out of someone's lungs, and keep it that way.

    Has anyone else seen the giant hardcover version of The Promise, the "library edition"? I just saw a copy in B&N. It's got some annotations from the writers and artist, as well as sketches and designs at the end. It's pretty cool.

    That's awesome! The copies I got from the library were three separate books.

    Just read a scanned version of it.
    WTF?!!! :mad: Please, please, please don't tell me that Ursa's letter is true and that Zuko is illegitimate. That's just all kinds of wrong, and completely destroys Zuko's story arc in the original series. DO NOT WANT. Please let it be just Ursa lying out of kindness to her old boyfriend... Or that Ozai faked the letter... Or something...

    Unfortunately, it makes too much sense. I suspect:

    We'll meet Zuko's father. My guess is Zuko keeps the throne via Iroh and the fact Azula is crazy

    Having Zuko be the son of Ikea (or whatever the bloke's name is) completely undoes his whole journey in Book 2, where he became physically ill because of the two heritages that fought inside him - Roku's and Sozin's. And it also undoes the effect of "The Avatar and the Fire Lord". It's cheap, controversial for controversy's sake, and very much out of character for the series.

    IDK, I'm gonna trust Katara that it's an incredible tale. ;)

    Bloody hell.

    I agree with Maria on this issue. Zuko is too good a character, formed from such complexity, whose arc is so wonderful, to be dealt such a... soap opera-esque blow. Which as has been pointed out, is totally out of character for the franchise. This feels like a cheap dramatic smack in the face for all those who have followed Avatar over the years.

    I don't see how it makes any sense.

    Thus, I have to believe we don't yet know the truth. I'm consoled by the knowledge that the chief revelation in a story is very rarely revealed at the end of Act One.

    But last year, we didn't know if Legend of Korra was going to premiere in 2012 or 2013, and then all of a sudden they announced it would be released in 1-2 months. So it's the same thing they did last time.

    As Maria said, fantastic news if true. With so little information about the air dates coming to light I was beginning to worry that Nickelodeon, knowing they had a hit on their hands, were going to make everyone wait. And yes, trailer PLEASE!!!!!!

    Read the first of The Search.

    So Zuko isn't Ozai's biological son.. Unless Zuko missed a letter, or "our son" was taken out of context. If it's true, it's only a surprise because they actually went there. I think I'm more disappointed for the fact that it means Iroh isn't really Zuko's uncle.. but, I don't feel completely opposed to it. I agree it makes his struggles about family seem rather wasted, but on the other hand, "removing" him from Ozai may be the only thing that will finally snap him out of it.

    I'm going to speculate that Azula is Ikem's child as well. Dun dun duuuuuuuun!

    Not read the issue... is it possible Zuko just has a half-brother out there and they're doing a bait and switch?
