MARCH: BOOK TWO cover revealed!



I'm pleased to announce that we've unveiled the cover of March: Book Two! This continues the memoir trilogy of Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis, moving from the stand-in protests of Nashville in 1961, through the Freedom Rides, imprisonment at Parchman Farm, the Children's Crusade in Birmingham, the evolution of SNCC, and the historic March On Washington in 1963.

Amazingly enough, the cover was revealed on CNN, previewing a segment set to air on July 20th. More info on that full program in the next few days.

March: Book Two is co-written by John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, drawn and co-edited by me, and will be released in early 2015 from Top Shelf.

March: Book One recently won a Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, a Coretta Scott King Author Honor Award, and is nominated for 3 Eisner Awards to be determined at next week's San Diego Comic-Con! It's on the school curriculum in over 30 states, and will be read by over 15,000 incoming freshmen at 3 major universities (so far) next month. Exciting to be a part of this journey!
