Aydin, Andrew : Run

Book One

First you march, then you run. From the #1 bestselling, award-winning team behind March comes the first book in their new, groundbreaking graphic novel series, Run: Book One

"Run recounts the lost history of what too often follows dramatic change-the pushback of those who refuse it and the resistance of those who believe change has not gone far enough. John Lewis's story has always been a complicated narrative of bravery, loss, and redemption, and Run gives vivid, energetic voice to a chapter of transformation in his young, already extraordinary life." -Stacey Abrams

"In sharing my story, it is my hope that a new generation will be inspired by Run to actively participate in the democratic process and help build a more perfect Union here in America." -Congressman John Lewis

To John Lewis, the civil rights movement came to an end with the signing of the Voting Rights Act in 1965. But that was after more than five years as one of the preeminent figures of the movement, leading sit-in protests and fighting segregation on interstate busways as an original Freedom Rider. It was after becoming chairman of SNCC (the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee) and being the youngest speaker at the March on Washington. It was after helping organize the Mississippi Freedom Summer and the ensuing delegate challenge at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. And after coleading the march from Selma to Montgomery on what became known as "Bloody Sunday." All too often, the depiction of history ends with a great victory. But John Lewis knew that victories are just the beginning. In Run: Book One, John Lewis and longtime collaborator Andrew Aydin reteam with Nate Powell-the award-winning illustrator of the March trilogy-and are joined by L. Fury-making an astonishing graphic novel debut-to tell this often overlooked chapter of civil rights history.

'On Thursday, the Congressman and his publisher announced that his next book project, to be called Run, will be another multi-part graphic novel, picking up where March left off. "In sharing my story, it is my hope that a new generation will be inspired by Run to actively participate in the democratic process and help build a more perfect union here in America," Lewis said in a statement.' Time Magazine

"Rep. John Lewis's story as a civil-rights leader is so big, even three graphic novels couldn't tell it all?"Run," its first volume slated for release in August, continues the story, following him through the backlash against the civil-rights movement and the tensions that helped splinter it, putting him on the path that would ultimately lead him to Congress." The Wall Street Journal

'...Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), the civil-rights hero who documented some of his story in the acclaimed graphic-novel memoir "March" - and who will continue to chronicle his civil rights fight in the recently announced comic book "Run."'' Washington Post

"Rep. John Lewis' graphic memoir series for young readers, "March," about his civil rights work with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was supposed to be a trilogy. But a new book, "Run," is coming, and more are on the way. Lewis, a civil rights hero, won the National Book Award for "March: Book Three." Abrams ComicArts will publish the next book, "Run: Book One" in August, the publisher said in a news release. Based on Lewis' experiences as a young man in the civil rights movement, "Run" picks up where "March" left off, telling the story of his struggle to lead the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, for which he was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Lewis rejoins his "March" co-authors, writer Andrew Aydin and illustrator Nate Powell, and add a new illustrator in the mix, Afua Richardson. Richardson is known for her work on Marvel's "Black Panther World of Wakanda" and "Genius" by Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman." The Los Angeles Times online
