March: Book One

Book 1, March Trilogy

John Lewis and Others

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Top Shelf Productions is proud to present March, a trilogy of graphic novels co-authored by Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) and Andrew Aydin, with art by Nate Powell (Swallow Me Whole, Any Empire, The Silence of Our Friends, The Year of the Beasts).

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 joins 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.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jul 15, 2013 – The long-overdue move to chronicle American history in graphic novel form takes another great step forward with this first volume of a projected history of the civil rights struggle. Instead of taking an all-inclusive, Eyes on the Prize–style approach (an epic undertaking that hopefully is on another artist’s to-do list), March is told from the perspective of Georgia congressman John Lewis. Listed here as coauthor with Andrew Aydin, Lewis frames his story as a flashback told to a few inquisitive visitors in his Washington office as he is getting ready to attend the inauguration of President Barack Obama. It’s an occasionally creaky device that slips sometimes into hagiography, but Lewis’s tale is a resolutely dramatic one regardless. Highlighted by dark, neo-noirish art from Nate Powell (The Silence of Our Friends), March tracks Lewis from his hardscrabble childhood on a remote Georgia farm to his gradual awakening to the pernicious evil of segregation and his growing leadership role in Martin Luther King Jr.’s nonviolent resistance movement. If the book strays too far from Lewis himself at times, that’s because the momentousness of what’s happening around him cannot be ignored. Superbly told history.

History

Looking forward to the second book.

Excellent story and medium to reach a broad audience.

It's clear a huge amount of work went into making this book great, and even more work (on John Lewis part) to live a life that should be shared with everyone. Parents, please consider sharing this with your children and young adults. I'm very much looking forward to the second volume.

awesome story, one for the ages

one of the most important stories in American history is finally available in graphic novel form. Thanks Top Shelf. Can't wait for book two. I will definitely be sharing this with my daughter who is five years old. Stories about true courage in the face of evil are not told often enough. Our children need to know that GOD is revealed through the actions of people who embrace righteousness and justice. Thank you Congressman Lewis.
