Update: It looks like this leak is actually fake. A commentator by the alias of Zhaolives brought this to my attention and explained that this picture is actually an early concept art of Mako that the artist Joaquim dos Santos did back in 2010. Here’s a link to the full picture with Santos’ signature.
It looks like our first potential Book 2 leak has finally arrived. I have to give Avatar Jesal (Avatar Commentator on YouTube) props for finding this one, but I think we can all agree that this leak is not exactly confirmed. It surely looks likes it could be from Book 2 since we can clearly see the snow in the background as well as the clothing Mako is expected to wear, but nothing is official.
I say this because even though this does look fairly real, there are a lot extremely talented artists out there that can recreate things and make them look professional. Remember when I posted about the potential leak of Zuko and his Daughter from Book 2? That turned out to be some fan art someone posted to the internet.
I’m not quite sure how this specific leak could ever really be confirmed until the Book actually airs, but at least this gives us something to chew on as we wait for the new Book to release.
