Summary: C’RONA Pandemic Comics is a collection of short comics and essays developed to help youth understand the complexities of living through a viral pandemic. Each focuses on a different theme: the biology of the COVID-19 virus; the relationship of wild animals, particularly bats, to the pandemic; and the impact of the pandemic on tribal communities. Created by a group of artists, educators, tribe members, and scientists, this comic book provides an engaging way to learn about the COVID-19 pandemic from a cast of fictional characters—a parrot, a fox, a goat, a bat, a mouse, a coyote, and a ghost.

C’Rona Pandemic Comics

In general, I don’t read comic books. But, I had to try this one when I saw that it was about the Covid-19 pandemic. I found it interesting and informative. This book is a great way to connect with youth during this pandemic.

It’s a bunch of short comics but there are also a few essays that go over the subjects of the comics more in-depth. I would recommend ages 10+ for reading level and understanding.

I didn’t even know there were nonfiction comics until now. This makes me wonder what else is out there. Although the comic is nonfiction there are characters. The characters are cute and believable. I especially liked reading more about bats and how they relate to Covid-19. They aren’t the bad guys we make them out to be.

I recommend this comic compilation for youth who have questions about the pandemic.
