Reading Champions: Our New Comic Literary Program

As Hero Nation continues to grow, we've been hard at work developing programming that we feel can truly make a difference in the Ypsilanti community. Because comics have always served an essential part of our mission, we thought it was only fitting to create a program around them. That said, Hero Nation is happy to present:




Reading Champions is a program that seeks to improve youth literacy by providing escapism through comic books, manga, and an engaging literary curriculum. The program includes the Hero Nation Library,  a growing collection of comics and manga, and the Comic Book League, an after-school program— created in partnership with Bright Futures — that engages youth to think critically about storytelling in comics and manga.


Donate Comics

If you would like to donate comics or manga to our program and the Hero Nation Library, please visit our donation page. 

We can't wait to see where this goes. But for now, we're off to champion new worlds.
