The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series, Book One: Air by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I think it’s appropriate for me to start this review by saying that I’m a huge fan of “Avatar the Last Airbender”, as well as its subsequent spin off series, “The Legend of Korra.” So earlier this year when I was accepted to read a galley containing this very rare look at the behind the scenes of the show and collective art development, I jumped for joy. This is a stunning collection of reflections, backdrops, character designs and examinations of the art behind the first season of the show. I loved the full color pages as well as the progressive development and design of each of the characters. It gave a more intimate view of what went on behind the creation of the series, and it was nice to know the creator’s intentions and reflections delving into this series, from beginning to the end of the subsequent season.
A must have for any collector who loves animation and especially for those who love Avatar and the Legend of Korra.
Overall score: 5/5 stars
Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher.
