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 co-leading 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.

Andrew Aydin is an award-winning writer and Artist-in-Residence at the Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII) at Georgia State University. He was the Digital Director and Policy Advisor to the late Georgia congressman John Lewis, and his co-author for March and Run. Visit andrewaydin.com for more information. 

L. Fury is a lifelong resident of Houston, Texas with a BFA in animation from Sam Houston State University. She dove into comics full time in 2015 with the humor webcomic Bastard Comics before shifting her sights to long-form comics, illustrating the unreleased Double Barrel Shogun. Run is Fury’s first graphic novel.
