Publisher: Top Shelf Productions
Top Shelf delivers one of the year’s most important graphic novels with March: Book One, which begins the true story of Congressman John Lewis’ experiences during the civil rights movement in America. As the once-chairman of Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the last living member of the “Big Six,” Lewis brings historical authority to this formative period in our nation’s history while his incredible life provides a deeply personal window on segregation and the strength of nonviolent protest. Eisner-winning artist Nate Powell delivers some of his most beautiful work to date, bringing dimension to the farm life of Lewis’ youth and the tense exchanges of lunch counter sit-ins. With an impressive slate of media coverage already in the works, this is a book everyone will be talking about.
