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.

While this series has been on my radar for a bit, two things made me finally pick it up. One was Trump's attack on John Lewis. And the second was that I got a gift certificate to B&N. 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...
This tells about the childhood of John Lewis, how he grew up and what started him on his path. It goes on to show how when he was older, groups practiced non-violence in sit-ins and marches. They didn't argue. They trained so they wouldn't have reactions. I never knew how much actually was behin...
