I seriously don’t get why the ATLA comics get so much hate.
Of course they’re not going to hold up to the cartoon, but they’re artistically stimulating, full of action, plot-driven, and most importantly, THEY CONTINUE THE EPIC STORY WE ALL LOVE WITH ALL OUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS!
I’m personally grateful for the comics. Thank you Bryke and Gene.
GARAK: I’ve missed you. I’ve been genuinely concerned for your safety. Lunch hasn’t been the same without you.
This is said in The Search Part II, so it never really happened. I don’t feel like Garak would actually have said something like this at this point in the series; it’s not subtle enough. But since Julian was hooked up to the simulation deal, this likely means that Julian either knows Garak misses him or wants him to–or both.
HEY I had no idea that this happened, but right back when The Search first came out, Dante did a read for several different lines in the comic and put them up on his YouTube. They were across 3 different videos so I compiled them all here. Some of them are really good (particularly towards the end). It’s so cool hearing his Zuko voice.
Here’s the sources for the videos, they’re worth watching as he gives some commentary and stuff too:
Did I tell you what happened at the play? We were at the back of the theater, standing there in the dark, all of a sudden I feel one of ‘em tug my sleeve, whispers, “Trudy, look.” I said, “Yeah, goose bumps. You definitely got goose bumps. You really like the play that much?” They said it wasn’t gave 'em goose bumps, it was the audience.
I forgot to tell 'em to watch the play; they’d been watching the audience! Yeah, to see a group of strangers sitting together in the dark, laughing and crying about the same things…that just knocked 'em out. They said, “Trudy, the play was soup…the audience…art.”
