Drawing MARCH with Congressman John Lewis!

I'm proud to announce that I'm drawing MARCH, the autobiographical comics memoir of civil rights icon, Congressman, and true badass John Lewis
(Check out the Publishers Weekly announcement here!)

John Lewis is the sole surviving member of the "Big Six" of the Civil Rights movement, was a founding member and chairman of the SNCC, early organizer of the Freedom Rides and groundbreaking lunch-counter sit-ins across the South, worked closely with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy throughout the 1960's, was integral in the historic marches from Selma to Montgomery, and generally helped smack institutionalized white supremacy in the nuts and changed the face of 20th century American society. He's currently one of the U.S.'s most progressive Congresspeople, and is a gentle dude.

Top Shelf Productions will be publishing MARCH in 2015.
