Top Shelf Productions is proud to present the first volume of MARCH, a graphic novel trilogy co-authored by Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) and Andrew Aydin, with art by Nate Powell (a New York Times bestseller, Eisner Award winner, and finalist for the LA Times Book Prize). 

MARCH is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis' lifelong struggle for civil and human rights (including his key roles in the historic 1963 March on Washington and the 1965 Selma-Montgomery March), meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation.

In MARCH, a true American icon teams up with one of America's most acclaimed graphic novelists. Together, they bring to life one of our nation's most historic moments, a period both shameful and inspiring, and a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.

Après avoir indirectement causé la mort de son propre frère, Hiro vit rongé par le remords. Deux ans ont passé quand il se réveille soudain dans le noir, menotté et coiffé d’un mystérieux masque de lapin. Au bout d’un couloir, le corps sans vie d’un adolescent, et sept autres victimes terrifiées, enfermées dans une étrange salle de tribunal. Mais aucun d’entre eux n’est vraiment innocent… Coupables d’un crime resté impuni, tous incarnent un des péchés capitaux : gourmandise, avarice, paresse, orgueil, luxure, envie et colère. Le procès peut commencer… À la fois juges et bourreaux, ils devront choisir toutes les douze heures celui d’entre eux qui sera sacrifié.
