This urgency became the foundation in this research to find alternative learning model for institutionalization process of demographic values, especially in improving the students' political literacy.

The population of the study were students of Mojoagung Senior High School in the academic year 2015/2016, while the sample were class XI Mojoagung Senior High School students, collected using purposive sampling technique. The selection of students at the high school level was based on the idea that they have rights as voters when there is an election. The right reflects the praxis of political participation which is the output of democratic education. The output can be obtained if the input in the form of political knowledge has been successfully transferred to the students. The instrument used in collecting the data was an objective test, while the data was analyzed using the test of data gain normality that was normalized (N-Gain). The results of this research showed that 1) there is a significant difference of political knowledge between students who used comic as their media and those who did not use comic media, 2) there is effect of using comic as their media can increase the political knowledge of the students.
