    I was very impressed when Congressman Lewis stated this comic book was how he first became aware of Dr. King and part of the reasoning behind creating his own biographical graphic novel today called March, just published.

    • Thanks so much for that fact!! I was wondering how prominent this comic was – the database holding the photo only had information on when it was printed, not how many copies were printed and actually read. Amazing context!! 🙂

      I am 100% going to have to pick up Lewis’ novel.
