About the Author

Congressman John Lewis (1940-2020) was one of the "Big Six" leaders of groups who organized the 1963 March on Washington and was the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic memoir series March.

Andrew Aydin is an award-winning comics writer. He was the Digital Director and Policy Advisor to the late Georgia congressman John Lewis, and his coauthor for March. He splits his time between Washington, D.C., and Hendersonville, NC.

Nate Powell is a New York Times bestselling, award-winning graphic novelist; his work includes the March trilogy, Rick Riordan's The Lost Hero, and Save It for Later. Powell is the first and only cartoonist ever to win the National Book Award.

L. Fury is a lifelong resident of Houston, Texas. After a stint in the gaming industry and then marketing, she shifted her sights to long-form comics, illustrating the unreleased Double Barrel Shogun. Run is Fury's first graphic novel.


"This worthy successor to the late Congressman Lewis's March graphic memoir trilogy picks up in the civil rights leader's life during the 1960s counterculture revolution...This living history gives faces and voices to the legends of the civil rights era and connects their struggles to the present; the police brutality, voter suppression tactics, and segregationist politics of the 1960s are not so different from those Lewis was still making "good trouble" against at the time of his death in 2020. Lewis's stunning American story and legacy lives on in these pages."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review
"This is a fantastic choice for classrooms... will speak powerfully to anyone trying to make sense of their own values in the face of wider movements and calls to action."--Booklist, STARRED Review
"An intimate, powerfully revealing look at a crucial, complex time, through the eyes of a true American hero."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED Review
"As informative and essential an addition to the nonfiction comic canon as its much-lauded predecessors."--The Horn Book, STARRED Review
"Extensive biographical, reference, and artistic notes in the back matter will illuminate casual and student readers alike. Just as powerful as the 'March' trilogy, this paean to 'nonviolent soldiers' is principled, tragic, and stirring."--School Library Journal, STARRED Review
"Run is another indispensable chronicle of the life and work of one of 20th-century America's most exceptional figures, but it's also a mission statement for the work yet to come."--BookPage, STARRED Review
"There's a timeliness to Run, a reminder that the efforts to keep prospective voters from casting their ballots that are so much in the headlines these days are nothing new. It turns out the animus that drives so much of our nation's history is well suited to this form."--The New York Times
"Many of the moments in Run speak to related struggles today... Lewis wanted the lessons of the movement to outlive him."--The Washington Post
"The legacy of civil rights icon John Lewis lives on in Run: Book One."--TIME
"Run puts down a clear marker for future historians that is both true to Lewis's vision and meticulously researched. Run... shows the experience of Aydin and his team as visual storytellers and the strength of Abrams ComicArts as a "comics-native" literary imprint in supporting this kind of work."--Forbes
"Run is a startlingly relevant work of art that shines a light on elements of the civil rights movement that do not receive much attention, and shows how the struggle continues even to this day."--ScreenRant
"It is a powerful account of a pivotal moment... The artful combination of text and images paints a harrowing picture of the violence that continued to rock the movement."--The Atlanta Journal Constitution
"Run is a worthy successor to March, and in a way, it is almost a more vital work..."--Comic Book Resources
