I found the dynamics this storyline set up in parts 2 and 3 very engaging. But part 3 while visually stunning fell apart at the end in terms of plot and character. The most compelling element of the antagonist in this story, particular the first volume, is that he's not a villain. He's a dissident who fought a war to preserve his culture and a new post-war momentum is preventing the very preservation he sought to defend. His foe is rendered incorporeal, no longer embodied in any single soldier he can fight but in the hearts of his own community. So he is introduced in a very jovial way and he has a great point, if misguided. The second volume indicates the violent ends his philosophy and commitment have. But they're still realistic. Here, the antagonist has devolved into a two dimensional villain--which would be fine if it were consistent like Ozai, but it's not. And the resolution for the character is fairly tidy for a series that often concludes with ambiguity. It also appears to exhibit some disregard for life that The Last Airbender fought so hard to preserve in its series finale.

Also Zuko's presence is underutilized. While there is logic for him and the Earth King to be in this story, they feel like convenient plot devices more than integrated elements.

Conclusions are hard. And while the art is impressive, I found this one a clunker for such a strong entry into the series.
