First "The Legend of Korra" Graphic Novel To Be Released In June 2017

Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra wrapped up back in 2014, but that doesn't mean the end of the line for Korra, Asami, and the other heroes of Republic City!

Korra's predecessor, Avatar: The Last Airbender, has continued its story in graphic novels, and now Korra is poised to do the same with a three-part graphic novel series from Dark Horse called Turf Wars. The first installment is due out June 2017 from series co-creator Michael DiMartino and artist Irene Koh (with feedback from the series' other co-creator, Bryan Konietzko).

The Legend of Korra famously ended with a romantic pairing between its two female leads, with fans endearingly calling the couple "Korrasami". Turf Wars is set to pick up right where the series left off, as Korra and Asami return from the spirit world to find Republic City in disarray. The new spirit portal has caused no end of chaos, as a pompous developer plans to turn it into an amusement park and the triads reunite just in time to cause trouble for the city’s many evacuees.

"Korra has to figure out how to find a new balance in the city with all this stuff that’s gone on," DiMartino recently told EW. "It's gonna take place right after the finale, so it's focusing on Korra and Asami’s relationship as a new threat emerges. It's kind of like the aftermath dealing with the new portal in the city, and all the evacuees coming back to find their homes wiped out cause of the portal."
