    "I wanted so badly to wield power and change the world, I didn't concern myself with the consequences." OMG... this was just as beautiful as I had hope it would be. It gave the perfect ending for the whole ordeal, sure, but, more importantly, it treated my girl Kuvira with all the love and justice she deserved. I really fell in love with her character. Her growth and character arc are some of the best things ever. She was compelling at every moment of her journey and I felt her and "I wanted so badly to wield power and change the world, I didn't concern myself with the consequences."

Her growth and character arc are some of the best things ever. She was compelling at every moment of her journey and I felt her and understood her and she managed to make me feel so many things. I just love her. The fact that she shines through this comic just makes me so happy. She deserved it. Kuvira and Su definitely stole the comic for themselves and made of it what they wanted. Which turned out to be something gorgeous. Of course, everything else was solved accordingly and neatly. "You took me in when I was a wild, arrogant little girl and cared for me when no one else did. There were so many times over the years when you could have abandoned me, but you never did, not even when I was at my worst." _____________________I'm so not ready for this to end. Part of me has absolutely no desire to read it because once I start it is gonna have a very near end. The other part of me is so intrigue and needs to see what will happen and how it will end. It's a great feeling.

    3.5/5 - This installment seemed a little rushed unfortunately, but Im pretty happy with how they handled this sequel from the original series. But I absolutely needed more Korra and Asami, hopefully therell be another series in the future! 3.5/5 - This installment seemed a little rushed unfortunately, but I’m pretty happy with how they handled this sequel from the original series.

    Actual review: 4.5I loved the conclusion to this comic series. Even though I found it a little bit rushed towards the end, the story was interesting and action-packed.

This story could have benefitted from an additional edition so that the pacing is done right, but thats more of a preference rather than a Actual review: 4.5I loved the conclusion to this comic series.

The redemption arc, for instance, could have been drawn out a little bit more. Regardless, I look forward to many more adventures of Avatar Korra. I love being back in this world. And I love reading about my favourite characters over and over again. Keep the comics coming!

    Although I wish for these comics to be longer than three books per arc, I really love how they dealt with Kuviras arc. She is one of my favorite things about this series and to see her get redeemed in the end of this was such a satisfying conclusion. Really really looking forward to any future LoK projects Although I wish for these comics to be longer than three books per arc, I really love how they dealt with Kuvira’s arc.

    Nice ending for a redemption story. This arc is more Kuvira's journey than Korra but I love it. Gosh, how I miss this Avatar world. Looking forward to the next comics.

    Really great end to this storyline, has a good mix of cute moments with all the characters and wrapping up the political plotlines from the first two volumes.

    This was mostly Kuvira-centric and I have no complaints. A satisfying end to the series but I still wish there was more!

    Kuvira is the star of this series, no doubt. She is awesome.The end to the 'Ruins of the Empire' arc of 'The Legend of Korra' comics contains twists and turns, and stuff that is well developed and worth getting excited for. Its drama is worth the hype; worth the investment. As well as Kuvira, it showcases the Beifong women, by blood - three generations of them. The female empowerment isn't lost. There was no need for me to be worried about how Korra and Asami are going to get through everything Kuvira is the star of this series, no doubt.

There was no need for me to be worried about how Korra and Asami are going to get through everything together this time round. They are sweet. They are part of the beating heart of the comics. I don't know exactly how to say anything else concerning Korrasami without revealing spoilers, but...they definitely share a bed. I'll leave it at that.I only wish 'Ruins of the Empire' could have been a little longer, and that more characters had more to do and say. Korra might as well not be the Avatar for all the importance that's placed on who she is in this series. The Avatar doesn't factor into anything, and I swear she only uses her airbending - once, on one page - in 'Part Three', the climactic end. It's good that her not using her fists and physical fighting prowess is part of her character development; leaving her with her tactical brains and words to solve problems. But her using her bending powers at all is missed. Is Korra even the protagonist in 'The Legend of Korra' anymore? It's Kuvira who receives the most panel time. Not that her redemption arc isn't strongly written and believable. It is. And it's pretty amazing; I am proud of it. However, maybe Kuvira and Korra could have worked together, side by side, in a better substantial partnership. In clear contrast to their former deadly enemy status. Have them work through their differences - and similarities - as equals, in the same story. Just a thought.But Kuvira's arc is good enough on its own, I suppose.'The Legend of Korra: Ruins of the Empire, Part Three' is ultimately about trust, forgiveness, and family, as well as building a democracy. All of which takes time, and must be earned. It's about a family of women, coming to terms with one another's past actions, and loving each other anyway. It's about female relationships, in their myriad natures. Oh glory.'Ruins of the Empire' is more heavily sci-fi than fantasy, which is the polar opposite to the previous comic series, 'Turf Wars'. The variety, as well as the relevant political angle, is appreciated; even if it is slightly done at the expense of Korra herself as the main character and the Avatar.Final Score: 4/5

    I like the comics because I get to see a bit more of the Avatar world with the characters I adore. Usually, I feel like the Avatar comics have a good commentary on the real world. And I like reading about these interpretations and how it will hopefully inspire younger generations about peace and justice. However, the ending of Ruins of the Empire was not as satisfying for me. (view spoiler)[I would have liked more background on Kuvira growing up with the Beifongs.

(view spoiler)[I would have liked more background on Kuvira growing up with the Beifongs. I felt like the ending glossed over that. I also feel like the treatment Kuvira got was a too nice, too happy ending. She still got a punishment but it is basically house arrest while she was the leader of a movement that caused a lot of misery.That being said it is an okay comic. I will probably always enjoy them due to nostalgia and I don't mind that at all. (hide spoiler)]

    I thought this was a great conclusion to this story arc. Kuvira is a complex character, and I wish we would get an arc this focused on Azula! I really hope these Korra comics continue because theyre a fantastic continuation of the show. And its really something to watch Korra and Asami together. 5/5 stars.

    A solid ending to the arc, though many dramatic twists that occur earlier in the series are too easily resolved and the ending is uncharacteristically uncomplicated for this series. Felt a bit too much like a "comic book" ending rather than the thoughtful stuff we see on the show. I wish that (view spoiler)[un-brainwashing Asami had been harder--brainwashed partner has so much dramatic potential and it was so easily undone that it made it boring and retroactively low stakes (hide spoiler)].

Really enjoyed Kuvira's cunning, and the tangling up of her backstory that they did with this whole arc. It was nice to see how some series faves were not so great in the past, though (view spoiler)[Opal flipped to welcoming Kuvira wayyyy too easily and seemed to wipe away how cruel she'd been to her growing up. I wish we could have had that as an ongoing bit of tension that stretches into the next arc (hide spoiler)].Overall, would recommend this arc. Hoping the next one really pulls no punches when it comes to wrapping up. I would like to be devastated and/or impressed to the level I was in the series plsthx.

    So, seeing as there is no news or expected releases for the near future, this is going to be the last piece of Avatar content I'll consume in a while. Thankfully Ruins finishes with a nice bow and gives us hope for the next series.

    [This review covers volumes 2 and 3, since I read them both in quick succession]Korra and Kuvira attempt to stop Commander Guan's takeover of the Earth Empire on two fronts, but a series of double crosses and a brainwashing device make things a little difficult.This story moves at a breakneck pace, but it never forgets that this is Kuvira's time to shine.

I do enjoy how the Korra stories make use of the extended cast a little more than the Avatar ones do, and this is no exception, although Mako and Bolin do get a bit of a short thrift.The art's pretty too - Michelle Wong's as good a fit as any and all of the Avatar/Korra artists that have come before her.

    omg i definitely liked this more than turf wars. korrasami in here is more in-the-background focus but every affection displayed still made me go bark bark woof woof no thoughts korrasami only! the art style here reminded me of gurihiru's so the familiarity eased me a little. the plot made decent points and kuvira's attempt at redemption was understandable. i only wished we could see more of bolin and mako..... it would be great if the quartet could get a fair amount of spotlight for once.

    This volume felt a little bit rushed at some points (I wanted the thing not to be solved so fast) but I really enjoyed it as a whole. Kuvira got her much needed time and my OTP had a moment too. I'm kind of sad that it is over and I hope that there is going to be another story. The Legend of Korra is one of my all time favorite worlds and I'd love to be able to revisit it again and again. I feel like they are my friends and I really miss them. Until next time...

    My gay heart cant handle the korrasami or the kuvira in this comic. Its just wonderful thank you. Its a comic so it doesnt go as in depth as I would like but Ill take whatever I can get and this is already far more than I expected.Also the coloring in these panels were exceptionally well done, and I liked the way things were resolved in general. Keep making korra comics and I will keep reading them amen My gay heart can’t handle the korrasami or the kuvira in this comic. It’s just wonderful thank you.
