Princess of This Zoo

“I’ll take good care of you, do you hear? Your father asked me to. And you know what? You’re the Princess of this zoo.” – Celestin

Zoo is a wonderfully-drawn and well-written comic by Frank and Bonifay. Set just before the First World War, Zoo tells of the story of four people–a doctor, a sculptor, an orphaned child, and a Russian woman with a troubled past–and how a menagerie helped them become a family.

Glimmer of HopeThere are 3 books in total and each book tells of the different phases in each character’s lives, but most specifically, the journey of Anna, the Russian woman who traveled halfway around the world to redeem her soul.

The animals in the comic are wonderfully-drawn, to the point you would wish that the zoo was real.

Sculptures of MeThere are certain sexual depictions in the comic and is not suitable for younger readers.

I found the story slightly difficult to understand at first, but as the story progressed, I found it interesting, deep and meaningful. I give this story 5 stars out of 5.
