Top Shelf Productions is proud to present the first volume of March, a graphic novel trilogy co-authored by Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) and Andrew Aydin, with art by Nate Powell (a New York Times bestseller, Eisner Award winner, and finalist for the LA Times Book Prize). March is a vivid, first-hand account of John Lewis' lifelong struggle for civil and human rights (including his key roles in the historic 1963 March on Washington and the 1965 Selma-Montgomery March), meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. In March, a true American icon teams up with one of America's most acclaimed graphic novelists. Together, they bring to life one of our nation's most historic moments, a period both shameful and inspiring, and a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.

Anyway, damn John Lewis this is great. Too often books do not deserve the awards they get, but this one does. The fr...
When I read Maus last year, I was surprised at how well a graphic novel is able to tell a story with such an impact. Reading March: Book One, I'm strengthened in my beliefs that it is a very good medium for these kind of stories. I happened to get this book as a surprise (for signing up to a newslet...
When I read that Rep. John Lewis was going to have a graphic novel I thought this was bizarre. Admittedly this was my biases: I associate GNs with Batman, the X-Men, etc. I also wasn't really intended to read this because I've never really been into comics/GNs, etc. But after hearing the trilogy was...
Although Dr. King played in inspirational role in young John Lewis' life, his story was more than being Dr. King's sidekick. I think Lewis' story is one of similar stories from the time and place - young people restless for change while also respecting their elders' feelings and opinions. Book one i...
