About us

In the AWC universe, superheroes from all backgrounds work together to address issues facing us in schools, workplaces, and society, in general.

Comics have long been a medium for telling stories to teach, educate, inform and entertain, and AWC continues this tradition with a focus on education and using the comic book form (print and online) as a pedagogical tool to create engaging content to promote learning and retention of information among its readers.

Anti-bullying workshop

“Students often get bullied ….. I feel like everything that Aaron said and talked about helped the students understand the ramifications of bullying and why it’s everyone’s job to stop bullying. It’s a serious issue that everyone needs to be aware of and if we start educating our students when they are young, especially by using comic books, it really makes an impact on how they see themselves. Everyone want to be a hero and every  single person is capable of being one! I really enjoyed the workshop. My kids all said: That was the best day ever!” Grade 3 School Teacher, Toronto, Canada

Strength of the exercise: “Allowing for student voice.” Grade 3/4 School Teacher, Toronto, Canada

Strength of the exercise: “Student involvement as role playing; open discussion; appreciation and attentive listening; visual impact of the comic; student empowerment to bring about change.” Grade 5 School Teacher, Toronto, Canada
