UPDATE on March buttons:

Grateful to so many of you for showing your support. All of our buttons were spoken for in less than six hours. Happy to say that now everyone's package is in the mail and on the way. 

Hearing from so many of you who weren't able to order buttons but wanted to, we decided to make more.

These are 1.75 inch, pin backed buttons with a mylar cover. All parts (and the machine used to make them) are made in the USA. 

If you want to get them in time for Christmas, order by December 10th.

Remember, you can also download the free template and make your own.


Last night we wore a button on our lapel to the National Book Awards:

So many of y'all asked if there was a way to get more, we decided to do two things to make them available to as many people as possible. 

We are making the template available to download for free. This template contains 12 March logos, sized and spaced for 1.75 inch buttons. Feel free to use this PDF to generate buttons for any purpose you like.  


If you would prefer to purchase buttons, we have a limited quantity that we are packaging in units of 10.  These are 1.75 inch, pin backed buttons with a mylar cover.  All parts (and the machine used to make them) are made in the USA. 

MARCH goes to Comic Con, Wins Eisner

March: Book Two won an Eisner! I could hardly believe it. It was the capstone to what was arguably my most favorite San Diego Comic Con ever. Seriously. From debuting March: Book Three, to selling out on Friday (!) of advance copies of the 2016 X-Files Annual I wrote, to winning an Eisner, to both starting and ending a day hanging out with Eddie Campbell--this was the Comic Con I dreamed of when I was a kid. 

On Friday, the whole team was asked to present three categories at the Eisner Award Ceremony which was a big thrill unto itself, but the highlight definitely came when, long into the ceremony, we won an Eisner for "Best Reality-Based Work"--a surreal evening by any measure. Seeing Rep. John Lewis bound on to that stage reinforced the weight of our work over the last eight years and the extraordinary journey it took to get there. We also received some incredible news about the future life of March that we'll be sharing in the coming weeks (soon! I promise).

Some coverage:

The Guardian - " US congressman wins Eisner award for graphic memoir of civil rights struggle"

The Frame on 89.3 KPCC - "Rep. John Lewis wants his graphic novel, 'March,' to inspire young activists"

ALSO -- Only a few more days until August 2nd and the release of March: Book Three nationwide. Watch The Rachel Maddow Show on Tuesday (8/2/16) at 9pm on MSNBC to see Rep. John Lewis, Nate Powell, and myself talking about the new book and a beautiful animation of Nate Powell's art put together by the always-exceptional Maddow Team. 

MARCH Nominated for Ignatz Award!

Woke up to a text from Nate Powell this morning, sharing the good news that MARCH has been nominated for an IGNATZ award for Outstanding Series. I feel tremendously honored to have our work nominated alongside so many other exceptional creators.
