Upside Comics use comics and graphic novels to promote literacy for children and young people. We support reading and creative writing. You don’t have to be “good” at drawing to make comics!

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 children’s future success and happiness (we also believe that comics are a cool way to get there).
