Though many Avatar: The Last Airbender fans celebrated the popular Nickelodeon's very first LGBT couple in The Legend of Korra after the series revealed that it was actually leaning in for a relationship between Korra and Asami during its final season, many were disgruntled over the fact that Korra had only implied the relationship between the two during the series final moments.

Now, according to a report by Entertainment Weekly, Dark Horse comics offers a great new follow-up to that tender moment where Korra and Asami take each other's hands and walk together to enter the Spirit World through a portal. A direct sequel to the series, The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars gives fans a look into the lives of Korra and Asami as they go on vacation.


Written by Michael Dante DiMartino, Korra series co-creator, and illustrated by Iren Koh, the new comic features the different problems being brought on by the new portal and how Korra and Asami deal ith it.

"Korra has to figure out how to find a new balance in the city with all this stuff that's gone on," DiMartino explained. "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 because of the portal."

With the new comic giving everyone a closer look at Korra and Asami's newfound love, The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars is definitely going to be a big thing for fans.
