“WildeHopps isn’t actually canon!”

In all seriousness, Nick and Judy, while they have the potential to be the best couple in Disney history, never actually leave the territory of “best friends” in the movie. WildeHopps is purely hypothetical until a sequel shows otherwise.
Of course, best friends make for the best couples, so by all means continue shipping them!
We’d be out of work if you didn’t.
Still, we don’t see very many comics taking the other side of things, where Nick and Judy are just best friends who have each other’s back in every instance – including scoping out potential partners for each other, and being totally prepared for the morning after. Axel Eg Andersson… part of me loves this, and part of me hates it. But both parts enjoy it, so I have no regrets featuring this!
