Upside Comics use comics and graphic novels to promote literacy for children and young people. We support reading, creative writing, design and illustration.

Upside Comics is a small charity. The organisation was started by people working in schools and youth charities who love comics. We believe that literacy is the key to childrens’ future success and happiness.
