While the cartoon was largely self-contained, there were a few loose ends left by The Last Airbender, one of the largest of which is what happened to Zuko's mother, Ursa. The Search sets Aang, Katara, Sokka, Zuko, and Azula on a quest to learn the truth and possibly repair Zuko's broken family.

Matt Kindt’s Mind MGMT is still my favorite comic out there. The story is so multi-layered and fantastical that every issue earns your complete attention. I have found myself devoting more energy to unraveling every detail of this comic than anything else I’m reading. This is as much to see these deeply flawed and fascinating characters as to witness the revelations that show up on nearly every page of this incredible comic. Every issue that I have read is like the best episodes of Lost, without the negative baggage that the show piled up toward the end.
Judge Dredd Year One is not a typical year one comic; Dredd doesn't suck at his job. This might seem like a silly thing to mention, and longtime Dredd readers will simply shrug and say, “Of course, he doesn’t; he was designed to be good at his job. Do you even Wikipedia, bro?”
This is the G.I. Joe book I’ve been waiting for. This book has it all: Joes kicking butt, witty banter, methodical villains plotting evil schemes, and, of course, tons of explosions. Fred Van Lente and Steve Kurth have delivered the perfect combination of action, humor, and drama to make any ordinary Joe happy.
WINNER ANNOUNCED BELOW!

A story about Hitler Youth in the dwindling days of World War II is most likely few people’s ﬁrst choice for compelling comics reading, but writer Tony Keaton and artist Andrew Herbst have managed to craft an intriguing and, at times, even emotional story about the things we do in youth and how they affect us in age.

There are many conflicting theories about what happens to us when we die. This is my new favorite. R.I.P.D. is a straightforward buddy-cop story about two dead cops patrolling a new beat. Sherriff Roy Powell is the grizzled veteran, just three weeks from retiring from the Rest in Peace Department. His new partner is the recently-deceased rookie, Nick Cruz. Together, they will work to solve Cruz’s murder, deal with a domestic disturbance, and try to stop a madman from taking over Hell.
One of my favorite genres is the end of the world. I know that it’s everybody else’s too, but I love a good apocalypse. The Massive gives us the best apocalypse. Basically, for no reason that anyone knows, the Earth has decided to try to kill us all. Earthquakes, floods, droughts, fires, and Roland Emmerich are all let loose at once, effectively destroying shipping lanes, coastal cities, and entire ecosystems. As a result, the world descends into that familiar post-apocalyptic madness that is so interesting. The Massive follows the crew of the Kapitol, an environmental action group’s ship, as they try to locate their missing sister ship, the Massive. They also contend with pirates, warlords, and general thugs.
