The award-winning Zootopia Comic has proven to be a very popular children's franchise since the television show became a sensation in 2021. After all, what kid doesn't want to live in a world like Zootopia? In this brand new book from IDW, kids get to meet their favorite animal friends in the most innovative way. And in a world where animals can talk and interact with each other, these friends become quite invaluable.
In Zootopia, nature takes its natural course-not a controlled voyage by an ever increasing number of cars. The city of Zootopia lies on an island in the Pacific Ocean, and animals come and go from all over it every day. Because animals are naturally social, Zootopia was created as a place where animals could go to the bathroom, eat, and generally relax. The only rule they have is that all Zootopians need to stay together. As a result, there are no humans to disturb the peace and well being of any of the animals living in Zootopia. If an animal wants to move, they have to go through the same process as the rest of the Zootopian citizens.
Everyone knows that animals are intelligent and social animals. They have to interact with each other to keep them happy and healthy, so they don't feel like they are being left out by the human population. It's a fact of life, and one that is explored in this innovative kids' book.
Nick and Serena, two cousins, are the newest members of the Zootopia City Council. The children quickly learn that they have a lot in common. Like the rest of Zootopia's citizens, they are required to obey the law, respect other animals, work hard, and give to charities. If they break any of these rules, they will find themselves suspended from office.
The Zootopia comic covers many different topics. For example, there is a story that follows Serena and Nick as they try to save a bald eagle named Hank. It shows the two cousins helping each other and working together to solve problems. In another story, the twins reunite after finding themselves lost in the jungle. There is also a love story between a lion named Tai Lung and the beautiful rabbit named Rabbit.
One of the greatest things about Zootopia, though, is that it is written as a fantasy story. Animals are shown to act and react to situations as if they were real people. In the beginning, it is not very clear how animals truly interact with each other. Only a few examples of this kind of behavior are shown, but it soon becomes apparent that they can form lasting relationships. In fact, animals are so emotionally attached to their friends that they will do their best to protect them from bad guys.
Another great thing about Zootopia is that there are so many recurring characters. Judy is the main character, but she has a companion named Lion and there are other minor characters like Fido, Rex, and Mr. Croc. The various animals play a major part in the plot, but each of them has their own story to tell. They also help solve the various mysteries that occur around the city. Even though some of the story lines are predictable, the characters manage to keep you guessing just enough to make you laugh.
Overall, Zootopia Comic is an enjoyable read. If you have never seen the movie, it is definitely a good place to start. The animation is excellent, and the story is even better. No one could ask for more from a movie. You can't go wrong with this popular animated kid's movie.
