Smoke and Shadow
« on: September 29, 2015, 01:36:19 PM »
Whose read it?

Thoughts, feelings, otherwise?

spoilers (click to show/hide) I like where they are going with this whole maiko thing. And dare I say Zuko looks so grown up, I love this art! Very handsome haha!! And they address Ursa's going back into the fire nation palace well I think, subtle enough, yet it's there.

Got my copy about a week ago. Got my theories, but won't spoil the story for anyone who hasn't read it yet. ;D

I'm dying to read it myself, I cant wait to get my hands on it, but I know it's not coming to this beck of the woods any time soon so guess we'll just have to wait and see until I can get my hands on a hard copy. For the meantime I'll definitely be reading it online when it's posted. Story line looks real promising =D

It wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't already up?

Finally read it. Really liking Mai as a character. Anyone up for spoilers, or no?

I haven't seen or heard all that much about this particular series of books; I'm wondering if people are just being close-mouthed about it, or... what.

Any thoughts?  I'm thinking about getting them.

OMG! Caroline-chan5 told me this morning that part 3 came out TODAY, 2 weeks early! Called my comic shop, and sure enough, it's in & a copy has been put aside for me! :D

I just got my copy and I have to say overall I liked Smoke and Shadow.

I won't say anymore than that to prevent spoilers.

Could have Azula been a stealth mentor to Zuko? If you don't know what a stealth mentor is here is what is stated on tvtropes.net; Stealth Mentor:  Implied to be what Azula was being to Zuko all along, helping him be a better Fire Lord through a reverse psychology act of claiming she's trying to make him more ruthless, which has the opposite effect and she seems pleased with this.

Azula did have a very intense looking face while listening to Zuko's speech but if you look closely Azula does have a small smile. While would she be smiling if her plan to make Zuko like her was not working?
