If you’re a fan of the movie and/or the Nickelodoen cartoon then it is time you pick up a sample of the comic. Having only watched the movie this comic makes perfect sense. I have a basic understanding of the characters. I think the main character, Aang, seems to have more life and character in this version than I remember from the movie version. Aang gets into a little trouble and uses his growing airbender skills to take care of the situation. This story has lots of fun action. Then a second airbender story! Two fun cartoon style comic tales for the low low price of free. This is a great time to bring new readers into comics.

If that isn’t enough reason to pick up this free comic and give it a try then remember that this same issue also includes Star Wars Clone Wars comic for free too. More than worth the cover price, this has a menacing Darth Maul looking Opress leering from the cover. This is a tale of anti-Jedi axe wielding action with off panel splatter hinting at space blood and gore.

This cartoony Jedi story is aimed at an older child than the airbender and the action is grimmer. These two cartoonish licensed properties make a nice pairing for an older child but may prove a little splattery for younger children. That seems to make an odd pairing.
