The opening edition of The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars showed the titular protagonist, Korra, and her female crush Asani passionately kissing. This kiss is historic for the comic book because it never included same-sex kisses before. The pair met each other on the animated TV show of the same name, which was a continuation of Avatar: The Last Airbender, a cartoon about four kinds of superpowered humans locked in conflict. The last episode of the TV programme ended on a cliffhanger, with the pair going on holiday to the Spirit World. They did not express love to each other but they were holding hands and it was easy to guess there was something between them. n the new comic book, the couple is about to return from their travels when Asami takes the plunge. “Before we go,” she tells Korra, “there’s one last thing I want to do on our vacation.” And then they kiss. The TV show’s co-creator Bryan Konietzko had previously confirmed that Korra and Asami are in love and there is no denying it.
