This is it.
The end.

It is an open ending- Zhao's misadventures with spirits could continue, but I'll end it there. It's a good place to stop.

Thank you everyone, for reading this long, very long, too long exercise in storytelling (now if I can make as many pages for my personal projects...).

The Avatar universe belongs to Mike, Bryan, Nickelodeon-Viacom-MTV.
All the characters belong to them, but a few of the extras are my own creation.

Wow. You know how to tell a great story. You didn't 180 Zhao, you didn't make him something he's not, but you did make him grow outside what we thought we all knew of him. I have enjoyed reading through this and the skill in the drawing and movement of the characters made this something really special. I know I will return to read through again. And thank you, for making me root for the very small good part of Zhao. 
Phoenix-of-Athena Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2014 brilliant and beautiful.  I never would have thought that I could like a character like Zhao, but you obviously changed that.  :D
Truly, this is perfect.  You embody the character of the show, with your odd bits of humor, and every characterization (of characters) is spot on.  And that's not even mentioning your gorgeous artwork!  I absolutely loved this.

I am angry . . . but thoroughly satisfied all at the same time. I commend your art and fantastic story writing abilities (Lord knows I couldn't write a sizable story to save my life).

All beginnings are some other beginnings end. A really nice introduction to what would be an epic tale.

Now THIS...

Is a story.

Thank you for making this (and my evening). :D

I saw some of your work on Reddit about the peril of leaving the spirit portals open, with Zhao coming back and seeing Tenzin.  In the comments, someone said, "If you liked that, you should read this" and linked to Water Tribe 001.

I did like that, so I did read this...all in one sitting.

Thank you very much for making this.

Great comic. Much better story than Korra. Too bad you're not in there team(maybe yet, lol). I do hope we'll see more of this goodness in the future.
