What we know is we can foster public support for the goal of empowering children who live in inner city and rural communities with the knowledge, tools, and abilities found in the pages of the premiere illustrated literary medium that is Comic Books! Strong anti-bullying and all-inclusive messages are found within the pages of Comic Books! We have proven repeatedly that you can change hearts and minds when you present the written word and picture stories in a balanced and thoughtful way!

Since 1996, we have given away more than Two Million Comic Books! In the last year alone, Comics4Kids INC direct programs and outreach efforts likely connected with upwards of 10,000 people! We want to leverage the community to dramatically expand this outreach to take the message about imagination and creativity and their importance to every household! Currently between static sites, we at Comics4Kids INC are endeavoring to inhabit a 25,000 + square foot building, to house the following: Main Reading Room, a separate Special Collections Reading Room, an expanded Exhibition Gallery/Convention Hall, Film/Media Screening Auditorium, Seminar Room/Classrooms, Visiting Guest Studios, Salon/Foyer, Collections Archives, Printing Press, Long Term Collector/Institutional Archival Housing (Vault), and a convenient Student Lounge! We want imagination and wonder in this decade to be like the Science Fiction boom in the 20’s and 30’s. We want an enterprise where our community finally recognizes and understands the potential and importance of this work. This is a huge vision and I think some of the most important work of our time. Your support will enable this vision and help usher public support for our Comics4Kids INC Comic Book Reading Library in the Northwest!
