Weird Enough Productions

Using superheroes and comic books to improve literacy and address the mental health crisis among teens and children.



The Big Picture:
Weird Enough Productions runs a national education program that combines diverse comic books with an anti-racist and equity-based learning curricula. The organization has already brought positive stories into the lives of two million children — helping them find their inner superhero. The result? Ninety percent report improved literacy and digital citizenship skills, and, crucially, improved mental health. 

“I founded my organization with the hope that I could use the same stories that helped me find my inner hero to support students everywhere.”  — Tony Weaver, Jr., founder, Weird Enough Productions
