CNN Launches March: Book Two from Congressman John Lewis

Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Brad Meltzer talk about comics and the story of American civil rights, with the launch of the look of March: Book Two, from Top Shelf Comix.

marchMarch Book Two made a massive splash last San Diego Comic Con last year. And even though this second longer chapter will take till next year to see publication, I'm sure we'll see more of it there…

Book Two will be significantly longer than Book One, taking a step forward into the tumultuous events of 1961-1963 while continuing the framing narrative of President Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009. Major plot lines include the famous journey of the Freedom Riders, imprisonment at Mississippi's Parchman Penitentiary, and young John Lewis' involvement in helping to plan and lead the legendary 1963 March on Washington.
