Are Avatars comics poorly written?

From what I heard of them, seems like it's full of stupid shit.

    They're all badly written, only read them if you're moronic and think it's necessary to understand why Cinemaphile hates canon ships.

    They suck and are basically made for the worst type of Avatar fans. I know there over-praised by the Kyoshi novels are like the only expanded universe stuff worth checking out.

        Nah even worse. The comics are for zoomer fans who think Azula is a victim of the writers hating women.

          The original writers of the show think Azula was done dirty. You can't stop the moronation when it's coming from insidde the house.

            on screen consistency trumps whatever post facto thoughts makers have.

            >I like this bad girl so they must be redeemed
            It's why these people should be kept as far away from fiction as possible

    >Zuko and Aang have to bust Azula out of mental hospital, despite Zuko being the Fire Lord who could order it, because we need action
    >When Aang heard Zuko has canceled decolonization, his immediate action is trying to kill Zuko without even trying to talk to him, even though it just a minor understanding
    Just seems like a far cry from the tv-shows writing

      They have some interesting ideas and the dialogue never feels out of character or anything but they suffer both from pacing, every one of them is a trilogy of books for no reason which results in them both being padded while sometimes also being rushed if some plot actually needs further fleshing out.
      Also the fact that they all take place immediately after the events of the show instead of years or decades later causes there to be a lot of contrived situations that only exist to set up backstory for Korra that feel out of place for the time they happen in.

      >>Zuko and Aang have to bust Azula out of mental hospital, despite Zuko being the Fire Lord who could order it, because we need action

      Nah even worse. The comics are for zoomer fans who think Azula is a victim of the writers hating women.

      They didn't bust her out though, Zuko did in fact just order her to be released into his custody.
      The events you have laid out didn't occur.
      >When Aang heard Zuko has canceled decolonization, his immediate action is trying to kill Zuko without even trying to talk to him
      While moronic regardless, The reason was because Zuko had previously forced Aang into agreeing to kill him the instant he did anything remotely opposed to restoring the earth kingdom after the war. It was an idiot plot.

      Funny seeing how the one about Azula possibly getting redeemed ends with her rejecting it becoming even crazier and more alone.

    Yep. They suck for the same reason TLOK sucks and it's because of Bryke having a shit ton of creative control over the story. And this isn't even a Star Wars Prequels situation despite people comparing the circumstances to it constantly. Lucas was never too interested in doing more Star Wars in the first place (and people neglect how he tried getting several of his director friends to do the job, only for them to refuse and insist he do it), and most of the key players at Lucasfilm had left or died or retired. Lucas really only did the prequels because he needed more money to work on new projects after his wife divorced him.

    With Bryke, things are different because Brian and Mike not only actively wanted to make more ATLA, but none of the key players who worked on ATLA were available to work on more ATLA material. And unlike Lucas (who genuinely is a talented and creative person), Brian and Mike just flat out suck at their jobs and don't understand what made ATLA special. I've read Rebel Genius by Mike and it shares a lot of the same writing frickups as TLOK and the ATLA comics.

    ATLA was lightning in a bottle and future ATLA media is gonna suck as long as Bryke are involved because they didn't make it interesting and fun, Ehasz and Walsh, the rest of the writers, and countless other people who worked on it did. Brian and Mike are hard-working people who know how to direct, but they're just not very good at writing or storytelling.

      Every thread compares SW to ATLA and it is a great comparison, classic hero stories. Some moments feel directly ripped like Guru telling Aang not to leave is just like Yoda in EDB. TLoK really feels to me like TLJ in terms of subverting expectations and it came first. TLoK could be a blueprint for all this media shit.

      People talk a lot about culture wars politics but for me it is this: people are incapable of writing classic heroes tales. Either because they are bad writers or because they've been raised on nitpicking YouTubers and hate tropes or because they see it as a type of storytelling beneath them.

      But when they apply this to these pop culture hits we get messes because they feel more like Tumblr fanfic than actual stories with arcs.

    They do basically the entire fire family dirty. Zuko is reduced to a pussified cuckold, Azula is schizo trying to get him to man up, Ozia loses all of little nuance and humanity he had in the show, and Ursa is a moronic rape victim as opposed to an actual character, much less a proud fire nation noble.

      How is that possible when he had none to begin with?
      He isn't even a character, he just a plot device in the show.

        Zuko says they were a happy family once. It turns out they weren't, and all of those touching flashbacks were a lie. Also, Ozai wasn't mourning Ursa's disappearance in the show, he was just, I dunno, hanging out at the pond for whatever reason. They never liked each other at all, and there were no good times.

          I mean that was the understanding of a kid who didn't know all the details, most kids from fricked up homes don't generally realize how bad their home lives are until they get older.
          Also it's possible Ozai wasn't always a complete dick to Ursa even if he basically kidnapped her.

            You see Zuko and Azula playing happily, and Ozai with his hand on Zuko's back in a paternal manner, and Ozai mourning Ursa. The old website said she was a perfect match for him, even. Now it's all gone. In return for the lost nuance you get a steaming pile of shit.
