When you’re tired of playing Poptropica, you can always take a break, relax, and read a comic or two. The database of original Poptropica comics can be found here! Use the index below to choose a comic. To view each page, click on it, and press the left or right arrow keys to go back and forth.

Note: If you find that the images are too small to read even after clicking on a page to bring up the gallery carousel for that comic, click on “view in full size” in the lower-right corner (may need to scroll down to see this on smaller screens).

Poptropica Graphic Novel, Volume 1: Mystery of the Map

A freak thunderstorm during a hot air balloon ride rips brother and sister Oliver and Mya and their companion, Jorge, from the “normal” world to the dangerous, unpredictable, and mystical world of Poptropica. The kids embark on a perilous journey to discover the truth about this mysterious place… and the shocking reason they were brought here.

Poptropica: the Comic Strip

Two young heroes, Oliver and Jorge, get thrown into the foreign world of Poptropica and have to survive the troubles thrown at them in this crazy adventure, which released a new strip every day from 2014–16. The images below only go up to week 8, so see below for where to find the rest of the strips.

To catch up with the official Poptropica series, check out these two Google Slides compiled by Invisible Ring:

  • Part 1/2 starts from the beginning and goes through islands with monkey people, Frankenstein monsters, balloon animals, dinosaurs, puppy newspapers, minotaurs, pirate penguins, chocolate everything, dentists, devils, werewolves (and the moon), a hotel, and vegetable Frankensteins.
  • Part 2/2 picks up where Part 1 left off with vegetable Frankensteins, then goes through islands with a Wizard of Oz theme, flying monkeys, cleaning supplies, a desert, robots, and the wild west.

For the record, back when the comics were still being released, you could read them daily on the Daily Pop, the GoComics website (which started later), weekly on the Creators’ Blog (which catches up with the Daily Pop every Sunday), Funbrain (which is ahead of all the other options), or the official Poptropica Comics iOS app. None of these options currently offer the comics, so the above Google Slides are the most complete record publicly available, though it is reported there remain some yet to be found.

Funnily enough, none of the lands explored by Oliver and Jorge in the comics (which are made by Paul Gilligan & Kory Merritt) are actually in the game Poptropica. Still, since they appear in official comics, these exotic locales can be considered Poptropica canon.

  1. It looks like Poptropica: The Comic Series hasn’t updated on Funbrain since about Spring-ish, but it DOES update on GoComics! — ➡ 😎 :mrgreen: Smart Popper :mrgreen: 🙄 ⭐

  2. I love the Mystery of the Map series. Out of all of the comics, it’s probably my favorite. The actual Poptropica series (the one with just Oliver and Jorge) is second only because after I get to a certain point, my computer glitches and I can’t go any farther!

    1. In fact, one of the only reasons that I kept coming to Poptropica for a while is…. *dramatic pause* I didn’t want to miss the new Mystery of the Map page(s)!

  3. When Jorge and Oliver are locked in the balloon animal jail in Poptropica: The Comic Series, there’s a poster in the background that says,”Wanted- Dr. Hare”

  4. My favorite Poptropica comic is the Graphic Novel. I don’t know if my favorite character is Oliver or Octavian. It’s pretty split. Reply by saying who your favorite character is in the Graphic Novel!

  5. Will you be able to put the second graphic novel, The Lost Expedition, on this comic page? I’d love to read it here, but if you can’t for any reason, I totally understand.

  6. To Staff of the PHB: I am not allowed to buy it in the stores because my parents are not big fans of Poptropica (more equivalent to burning The Lost Expedition if they ever find it before I do) so please get The Lost Expedition on this page plezplezplez thanks in advance if you can! (If you can’t, it’s okay, you aren’t being forced, I totally understand.) Oh, and just for the heck of randomness:
    ( ) ( ) I like to play Pop so gimme da book ()() But no pressure 😉

  7. My brother and I loved reading the Comic series on gocomics, now it’s disappeared. I wish they had published a book compilation when they abandoned the comics for the graphic novels (the time it stops is when they start). This is why I prefer owning physical books over ebooks. You don’t have anything. This blog are missing mcguffin island, library, Atlantis,and Dr.Frankenstein island on which they are left indefinitely. I haven’t found a better collection anywhere else.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
