From the Author:

Michael Bitz is the Executive Director of the Center for Educational Pathways, a nonprofit organization that establishes creative pathways to academic success for underserved youth.

Review:

“Michael Bitz is a leading scholar among those of us who study the pedagogical potential of comics....You are in for an exciting and illuminating read.”
―From the Foreword by James Bucky Carter, University of Texas at El Paso



“Whether you’re an educator, a writer, an illustrator, a parent, or a Superman fan who got drawn in by the word ‘kryptonite’ in the title of this book, I know you’ll find this work fascinating, relevant, and possibly life changing. Enjoy. I’ll see you in the funny pages.”
―From the Foreword by Jim Davis, creator of Garfield



"I've had the opportunity to work with some kids coming out of the Comic Book Project and I could see firsthand the results of passion intersecting with education. The Comic Book Project changes lives. Educators in all fields should be aware of Michael Bitz's groundbreaking work."
James Sturm, Director, The Center for Cartoon Studies



“What is it about writing, designing, and publishing comic books that so deeply engages kids who might otherwise resist reading or writing an unassigned word? In this highly useful book, Michael Bitz not only explains the success of the Comic Book Project, he also gives in-school and after-school educators tools and resources to get started.”
Lucy N. Friedman, President, The After-School Corporation
