Turf Wars Part Two is the second installment of the Turf Wars trilogy. It was released in comic book stores on January 17, 2018,[1] and in mass market retailers on January 31, 2018.[2]

Overview

Recovering from the fight and furious for revenge, Triple Threats member Tokuga solidifies his ties with the duplicitous Wonyong.

Meanwhile, when Republic City's housing crisis reaches its peak, Zhu Li sets her sights on the biggest public figure in the city—President Raiko—in a bid for the presidency!

With her friend's success, the future of the spirit portal, and the wellbeing of Republic City's citizens at stake, can Korra remain neutral and fulfill her duties as the Avatar?

Synopsis

Korra, Tenzin, and a couple more airbenders are on Oogi's back headed for the Spirit portal. Korra is determined to assure the spirits that she will be neutral after the fight one day earlier. However, as they fly through the portal, they find the Spirit World barren, with all the flowers that were previously growing in the field now dead. Korra is surprised to learn this, and Tenzin comforts her, saying that he knew the place was special to her and Asami. Meanwhile, Jinora has started meditating, and Kai is wondering aloud who would be powerful enough to do this and why. Korra reasons it is the spirits trying to send a message to every human who comes through the portal, warning them to stay out of their world.

Ikki thinks that will not help, as the portal is still open, and tries touching one of the wilted flowers, something Korra tries to warn her against, but to no avail. A vine shoots up, ensnaring Ikki's arm; thinking quickly, Korra uses a firebending slice to free her. Other vines begin attacking the other airbenders, and Tenzin orders everyone back to Oogi. Kai is already ensnared, but is saved by Jinora on her glider.

As they cross back into the physical world, they find the United Forces under the command of General Iroh setting up a perimeter around the portal, on President Raiko's orders. Korra tries explaining that she was attempting to ease the tension between spirits and humans and that having the United Republic's military surrounding the portal would only anger the spirits more, prompting Iroh to explain that that was not what he intended. Tenzin tries convincing him to get the military to leave. He offers the Air Nation's help protecting the portal instead. He is supported by Ikki, who mentions there was nobody better for the job. Iroh considers the offer, but ultimately rejects it as he has his orders. He suggests taking it up with Raiko instead. Annoyed, Korra leaves to talk to Raiko.

At the Republic City Police headquarters, Lin reads Mako and Bolin's report on Tokuga's attack on the new spirit portal. Reaching the end, she inquires what the last part says, as she is not able to read the handwriting. Bolin explains that it says that Korra and Asami kiss, prompting Mako to reiterate that he only wanted his younger brother to finish the report and not write a romance novel. Bolin defends himself by stating that he found it to be pertinent information the chief should know about. Lin scratches her chin, somewhat surprised. She berates Bolin for his sloppy handwriting, mentioning it looks like a possum chicken scratch. Bolin apologizes, but Mako changes the subject, mentioning that Korra suspected that Tokuga was sent by Wonyong Keum to attack the airbenders. When Lin asks on what grounds the accusation was made, Mako simply responds by stating it was plausible and that they could bring the businessman in for questioning. He is interrupted by Lin, however, who states that she will not bring him in with no evidence, as he is Republic City's most powerful and well-connected land developer which him hard to get to. As they leave, Bolin states that the lead could be a dead end, but Mako, unconvinced by this, suggests paying their twelve-toed friend a visit.

Confronting Ping in his cell, Mako tells him that the police are trying to track down Tokuga and that he might be helpful, though Ping answers that Tokuga changes the Triple Threat Triad's hideout every day, so he does not know its most recent location himself.
