For years, fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra have burned with one question—what happened to Fire Lord Zuko’s mother? Finding a clue at last, Zuko enlists the aid of Team Avatar—and the most unlikely ally of all—to help uncover the biggest secret of his life.
• This is the perfect companion to The Legend of Korra!
• The official continuation of Airbender from its creators!

The newest thing here would be, that Zuko finds a clue and that he is going to ask his friends to help.

Next year is shaping up so well for Avatar, multiple books and comics announced and Book 2 Spirits of Korra. 2013 is going to be The Year of Avatar.

    Awesome. Now I can tick off the days on my calendar. :P

    Though has the price gone slightly down, compared to The Promise?

    Nope, that is the price the books have always been.

    My LCS charges the Us cover price in euros and it was €10.99

    march 2012? :p So it’s out already?! It should be 2013!
    I think the ally will be Azula since she is also on the cover and indeed very “unlikely”. :D

    Yeah, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t exist. Since Nyla couldn’t seek out Aang either but then is was just due to the fact that his sense was disguised by the Lion Turtle.

    I’d be quite disappointed if that was what happened to Ursa. :P

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    We have confirmation that the series will involve spiritual stuff, which would make sense given how Nyla could not locate Aang.
    The key thing is how and why is Ursa in some way related to spirits, unless it it to do with being related to Roku.

    Umm. I believe that 2013 is the year of Doctor Who! The 50th anniversary is in 2013!

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    That may be, but I think a comic series that may answer something we have been waiting years for, Book 2 of Korra and other merch beats out a yearly anniversary of the original Dr Who show especially when it is also the 30th anniversary of Return Of The Jedi. New Content beats out nostalgia for me.
    Plus this is AvatarTheLastAirbenderOnline not DoctorWhoOnline. The avatar year makes more sense.

    Its not just nostalgia though. They are bringing back everyone Doctor and Companion from the past episodes next year.

    Ok, but as I said Avatar Site and the most avatar stuff at one time we have ever gotten,
    Should I also add that there is a power rangers and Kamen Rider event coming up where every ranger and rider appears to mark an anniversary ;)

    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    I think it happened a year or two back, though always likely to happen again.

    2013 The Year of Avatar is what I am sticking with
    -Book 2 Spirits
    -The Search Part 1 and I assume 2 and 3 also
    -Korra Young Novel Revolution and possibly the others
    -The Promise becomes the first Avatar comics to get the Hardcover treatment
    -SDCC 2013
    -The Podcast will have it’s first Birthday
    -Avatar The Last Airbender turns 8 and The Finale has it’s 5th Birthday
    -The Legend Of Korra Turns 1
    -This Site’s 3rd anniversary

    So I am pretty excited for Avatar Stuff next year more than anything else :)

    You like Doctor Who as well Callum? These are my two favorite shows, tied for favorite, so I guess that makes this the year of the just-pure-epic-groovy-awesomeness for me :P

    As do I my friend! It’s interesting, I’ve encountered a good many Who fans on this site. I guess Doctor Who and Avatar have certain mutual appealing qualities. Or you could just say that they’re both just awesome. :P yeah, I think I’ll go with that….

    This is so exciting to the point that I think we should make a sign up list for “The Search Trivia” if Airspeed decides to do one lol.

    Do I know anything about comics, well it's Ricardo's job to impart me with the knowledge of the Avatar comics with his energybending!

    Well it is going to be like 13 months probably before the series is complete and all 3 parts are out. The list may be premature, but I will most likely be doing a special trivia for The Search.

    What does it mean when it says ‘The official continuation of Airbender from its creators!’

    Kinda confused, MAYBE I’m a wee bit tired. Its late here in the UK.

    i know that this part prob wont show ursa. but i cannot wait to see mother and son reuniting. plus i have a strange feeling that azula MIGHT become good. all her anger stems from the point of her mother favoring zuko over her. maybe if azula lets all her thoughts out to her mother, maybe all that negative energy will go away?

    Joey Reply:

    I’ve got a theory about this. At the end of promise part 3 (nonspoiler) you see Ozai being pushed in a wheelchair behind Zuko while he is talking with Azula, then in the mirror Azula looks exactly like her father in the wheelchair in the reflection. I think it could be some foreshadowing about how Azula is going act during the plot. maybe Zuko will be influenced by Azula like he was with Ozai? maybe she becomes just like him? Anyway: theres plenty of proof that the two wheelchairs are different. maybe its not intentional and im just crazy. :P

    i got the notion that Zuko was speaking to Azula while this mystery wheelchair guy was riding in the background.
