It’s been a long time since we’ve heard an update about Dark Horse’s announcement that they would continue the beloved cartoon The Legend of Korra through the comics—over two years, to be exact. Still, better late than never, and the news that the comic will finally arrive in June 2017 is good news indeed.


The first collection will be called Turf War and follow-up immediately after the events of Season Four, just as Korra and Asami had recognized their feelings for each other. Now they’ve returned from the spirit world to find New Republic City in chaos, with the assistance of a giant spirit portal inside it.

Turf Wars is only the first volume of a planned three-graphic novel series from show co-creator Michael DiMartino, with “feedback” from Bryan Konietzko, the other co-creator, and art by Irene Koh. And apparently it’ll be out in June of next year. We’re holding you to that, guys.


Rob Bricken was the Editor of io9 from 2016-18, the creator of the poorly named but fan-favorite news site Topless Robot, and now writes nerd stuff for many places, because it's all he's good at.



This news delights me so much. I know most people consider A:TLA to be a more balanced, all-around better show, but maaaan there is just something about Korra that appeals to me so much. I can’t wait to have more of her and Naga and Asami (listed in order of importance) in my life.
