The purpose of this study is to identify the factors that led students to experience reading anxiety and the effectiveness of using comic book (pop-art) as a reading material for students to overcome their anxiety in reading. A survey was conducted and data was collected via questionnaire and interview. The questionnaires were distributed to the students to obtain information needed for this study. Based on the findings, the study revealed that majority of the respondents preferred to read comic book (pop-art) as a reading material in order to help them overcome their anxiety in reading. Besides that, majority of the respondents obtained higher achievement in the post-test which was conducted using the comic book as the reading passage.
