"A riveting and beautiful civil-rights story… Lewis's gripping memoir should be stocked in every school and shelved at every library." — The Washington Post

"Essential reading... March is a moving and important achievement. While it looks a little different than your average comic, it does tell the story of a true American superhero." USA Today

"An astonishingly accomplished graphic memoir that brings to life a vivid portrait of the civil rights era, Lewis' extraordinary history and accomplishments, and the movement he helped lead... its power, accessibility and artistry destine it for awards, and a well-deserved place at the pinnacle of the comics canon." — NPR

"March offers a poignant portrait of an iconic figure that both entertains and edifies, and deserves to be placed alongside other historical graphic memoirs like Persepolis and Maus."— Entertainment Weekly

"When a graphic novel tries to interest young readers in an important topic, it often feels forced. Not so with the exhilarating March: Book One... Powerful words and pictures." The Boston Globe

"The civil rights movement can seem to some like a distant memory... Rep. John Lewis refreshes our memories in dramatic fashion." — The Chicago Tribune

"Superbly told history." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Dazzling... a grand work." — Booklist (starred review)

"A powerful tale of courage and principle igniting sweeping social change, told by a strong-minded, uniquely qualified eyewitness... the heroism of those who sat and marched... comes through with vivid, inspiring clarity." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Lewis's remarkable life has been skillfully translated into graphics... Segregation’s insult to personhood comes across here with a visual, visceral punch. This version of Lewis’s life story belongs in libraries to teach readers about the heroes of America." — Library Journal (starred review)

"This is superb visual storytelling that establishes a convincing, definitive record of a key eyewitness to significant social change, and that leaves readers demanding the second volume." — School Library Journal (starred review)

"Likely to prove inspirational to readers for years to come." — Barnes and Noble Review

"Probably the most important graphic novel release of the year." — Mental Floss

"Through Powell's powerful graphical recreation of Lewis's life, we slip past the political struggles and into the soul of a man of courage and belief." — Shelf Awareness

"Like the acclaimed graphic novels Maus and PersepolisMarch is a coming-of-age tale set against a backdrop of violent, historical confrontation. As in those books, the sweep of history is palpable on every page, but it is the prosaic, very human concerns of the protagonist that make the history breathe." — Chapter 16

"Powell intuitively captures all of the drama inherent in the congressman’s gripping, ultimately moving story. Teaming him with Lewis and Aydin has resulted in one of the must-read graphic novels of 2013 (and beyond). If I were King of the World I’d certainly put March on Required Reading lists in middle and high schools everywhere." — The Comics Journal

"The civil rights icon [John Lewis] is a modern Superman, and now he has the book to prove it." — Atlanta Magazine
