Now, to celebrate the launch of both titles, MARCH publisher Top Shelf Productions has partnered with the Fellowship of Reconciliation (original publishers of THE MONTGOMERY STORY) and digital-comics leader ComiXology to share these powerful and timeless works with Rep. Lewis’ colleagues in Congress. Each member of the House and Senate is receiving a complimentary digital copy of both MARCH: BOOK ONE and MARTIN LUTHER KING AND THE MONTGOMERY STORY.
In a statement accompanying the gift, Congressman Lewis noted that the MARCH project “…is not just my story, it's the story of a movement, the story of a generation that stood up for justice in our country.
“Just like the comic book I read more than 50 years ago, it is my hope that this graphic novel can inspire new generations to speak up and speak out, to make their voice heard, and, hopefully, to make our nation a more just and peaceful place for all.”
MARCH: BOOK ONE is the first in a trilogy, with the second and third volumes planned for 2014 and 2015.
