Reading is an extremely active, complex, mental and personal process that concerns both the reader and the text. It is now generally believed that a range of reader with text factors affect the reading process to a considerable extent. So, teachers of EFL need to be aware of the important role of teaching materials. Thus, this study investigated the impact of comic reading materials on reading comprehension. Six general texts and pictures were given to the control group and six comic materials were presented to experimental group in usual English classes during 20 sessions. At the end, a general reading comprehension test was administered to both groups and the results were subjected to relevant statistical analysis, t-test. The findings of this study revealed that teaching reading ability through comic texts and pictures is more efficient than teaching it through general texts and pictures.
