Running for 52 episodes between 2012-2014, The Legend of Korra was a sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender. Just like its predecessor, it created a very dedicated fan base who loved the show dearly.
If you are a Legend of Korra fan then you’ll be pleased to know that, just like Avatar: The Last Airbender, Dark Horse Comics has continued where the cult animated series ended through a series of graphic novels. You’ll also be excited to know that this is written by Korra and Avatar co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino, in consultation with the other co-creator Bryan Konietzko.
With so many graphic novels already available, it can be hard to figure out which Legend of Korra graphic novel you should read first. Luckily, this reading order guide is here to make it easy for you. Read on to find out the recommended reading order and other helpful details.
