Congressman John Lewis's MARCH Dominates New York Times Bestseller List

August 15, 2016 / More →

Congratulations are in order for Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell. Their award-winning March trilogy has struck another milestone, as March: Book Three makes its debut appearance on the New York Times Bestseller List at #1.

In fact, the entire trilogy takes the top three slots, while March: Book One celebrates a full year of Bestseller status with its 52nd week on the charts, coming full circle from its own #1 debut.

In the wake of Book Three's release, demand for March has been staggering, selling out multiple printings. For several days in a row, each of the three volumes of March outsold every other book in America aside from J.K. Rowling's new Harry Potter adventure.

This triple-bestseller status is only the latest in a string of recent honors for March, the three-volume graphic novel memoir which brings the history of the civil rights movement to urgent new life through the eyes of John Lewis. In May, the nation's largest public school system, New York City Schools, announced the addition of March to their official "Passport to Social Studies" curriculum. A few weeks ago at Comic-Con, the authors accepted an Eisner Award (often called "the Oscars of comics") and led a commemorative "children's march" joined by hundreds of students and readers, with Congressman Lewis in "cosplay" as his younger self complete with trench coat and backpack. A recent New York Times article profiled the series' phenomenal success and its real-world impact on students across the country — including young activists who are being inspired by March to take up the mission of nonviolent protest in their own communities.

At last, the March trilogy is complete — but as Congressman Lewis reminds us, the march continues.


MARCH Outsells Every Book in America Except New Harry Potter

August 3, 2016 / More →


Thanks to years of support from readers, teachers, students, librarians, retailers, and more — and a cresting wave of publicity including Rachel Maddow's impassioned testimonial to the power of these comics — we are stunned and extremely proud to announce that, according to retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Powell's Books, the entire March trilogy is currently outselling every book in America that isn't the brand-new Harry Potter book.

Celebrate with Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell by picking up March: Book Three from your favorite retailer today!

Now, in the wake of the March team's recent Eisner Award and "Children's March" at Comic-Con, the trilogy comes to an incredible conclusion with March: Book Three, called by the Washington Post "sublime… an achievement on many fronts."

The early reviews are staggering:

  • "March is one of the most important graphic novels ever created — an extraordinary presentation of an extraordinary life, and proof that young people can change the world. I'm stunned by the power of these comics, and grateful that Congressman Lewis's story will enlighten and inspire future generations of readers and leaders." — Raina Telgemeier

Top Shelf Graphic Novels Win Three PubWest Book Design Awards!

June 8, 2016 / More →

Congratulations are in order for Top Shelf's lead designer Chris Ross, along with creators Ray Fawkes, Vince Locke, Troy Little, and Jeff Lemire!

This afternoon, the Publishers Association of the West announced the winners of their 2016 PubWest Book Design Awards, featuring no less than three "Gold" awards for Top Shelf graphic novels:

Junction True by Ray Fawkes & Vince Locke

Production Managers: Chris Staros, Chris Ross, and Veronica Haas
Designer: Chris Ross
Printer: Asia Pacific Offset
Inspired by its themes of surgical body-modification and interlocking parts, Junction True features an exposed spine and a vellum "skin" (dust jacket) which can be removed, inverted, and re-attached — which not only completes the circular painting on the cover, it also reveals a secret message coded into the flaps.

Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas adapted by Troy Little

Production Managers: Chris Staros and Chris Ross
Designers: Troy Little and Chris Ross
Printer: Tri Vision Company
The cover design to Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (color-coded to the "American Dream" which animates the book's plot) pays subtle tribute to previous visual adaptations of Thompson's work, while breaking new ground with the bold energy that characterizes Troy Little's style. A shimmering spot gloss on the front cover highlights the "bats" which Mr. Duke famously hallucinates in the book's iconic opening scene — are they truly there? Or only in your head?

Essex County (Slipcase Edition) by Jeff Lemire

Production Managers: Chris Staros and Chris Ross
Designers: Chris Ross and Jeff Lemire
Printer: Tri Vision Company
The cloth-bound limited slipcase edition of Essex County is an elegant celebration of one of Top Shelf's most critically acclaimed works. Two haunting sketches by Jeff Lemire of the book's enigmatic crow were transferred to a red foil-stamp on either side of the slipcase, while the book itself bears the image of the orphaned protagonist Lester in his superhero costume.

Congratulations to all the winners — these books are not just great comics, they're truly spectacular art objects.


March: Book Three — John Lewis's award-winning trilogy concludes in August!

June 7, 2016 / More →

This August, Congressman John Lewis collaborates again with Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell for the searing conclusion of the award-winning graphic novel trilogy MARCH. Through an unforgettable literary and artistic narrative, MARCH portrays the surpassing courage, sacrifice, and revolutionary nonviolence that transformed American society in the 1960s, narrated firsthand by one of the key figures of the Civil Rights Movement.

"March is one of the most important graphic novels ever created — an extraordinary presentation of an extraordinary life, and proof that young people can change the world. I'm stunned by the power of these comics, and grateful that Congressman Lewis's story will enlighten and inspire future generations of readers and leaders."
— Raina Telgemeier

By the fall of 1963, the Civil Rights Movement has penetrated deep into the American consciousness, and as chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, John Lewis is guiding the tip of the spear. Through relentless direct action, SNCC continues to force the nation to confront its own blatant injustice, but for every step forward, the danger grows more intense: Jim Crow strikes back through legal tricks, intimidation, violence, and death. The only hope for lasting change is to give voice to the millions of Americans silenced by voter suppression: “One Man, One Vote.”

To carry out their nonviolent revolution, Lewis and an army of young activists launch a series of innovative campaigns, including the Freedom Vote, Mississippi Freedom Summer, and an all-out battle for the soul of the Democratic Party waged live on national television.

With these new struggles come new allies, new opponents, and an unpredictable new president who might be both at once. But fractures within the movement are deepening ... even as 25-year-old John Lewis prepares to risk everything in a historic showdown high above the Alabama river, in a town called Selma.

March: Book Three
by Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell
A 256-page graphic novel with French flaps, 6.5” x 9.5”
ISBN 978-1-60309-402-3
Diamond order code: JUN16-0408

Civil Rights Icon John Lewis Brings Graphic Novel Education to NYC Schools!

May 5, 2016 / More →

NEW YORK (May 5, 2016) — When John Lewis was a college student in Nashville, Tennessee, he attended a workshop on nonviolence that changed his life. Based on the principles of Gandhi and the recent Montgomery Bus Boycott, it also included a comic book — Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story — as a take-home study aid in nonviolent resistance. “That little book became like a Bible for us,” says Lewis. Fifty years later, he teamed with co-writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell to adapt his own incredible life story into a series of award-winning graphic novels, entitled MARCH. The MARCH series is a #1 NYT-bestselling phenomenon, earning a Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, becoming a popular selection for university reading programs, and prompting the Washington Post to write, "There is perhaps no more important modern book to be stocked in American school libraries than MARCH."

Now, this groundbreaking graphic novel series reaches the nation’s largest public school system. Congressman Lewis and his MARCH co-creators, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell, visited New York City today to address hundreds of the city’s social studies teachers about teaching the civil rights movement and their graphic novel series, which is being added to “Passport to Social Studies,” an expansive new curriculum developed by the New York City Department of Education. Students study the civil rights movement in the 8th grade, and now, teachers may choose to utilize lessons developed by the Department of Social Studies that feature scenes from MARCH, to discuss milestones such as John Lewis's speech at the 1963 March on Washington.

In today's session, New York's teachers had a rare opportunity to hear from a seminal figure of history whose story is vitally relevant to the modern day — and who now presents that story in a powerful new format for engaging today's students.

Teachers across the country, at every grade level, have embraced MARCH as a dynamic and powerful visual testimony of the civil rights movement, narrated by one of its major figures. For example:

  • "MARCH has become essential reading in my courses... From the poignancy of Lewis’ childhood sermons with the family chickens to the courage of Freedom Riders nearly trapped inside a burning bus, each panel of MARCH rewards close readers, inviting analysis and critical reflection." — Qiana Whitted, University of South Carolina
  • MARCH brings the African American freedom struggle to life as no other memoir can. Told through the lens of Lewis’s remarkable biography, MARCH encapsulates many of the most important themes of the Civil Rights Movement, and American history more generally. Students at all levels will find that the vivid illustrations and quick pace make the narrative exciting to read, while also allowing for in-depth understandings about the complicated themes of race, equality, and perseverance in twentieth-century America. Nate Powell’s lines remain true to the horrific reality of U.S. history, while somehow highlighting people’s agency and humanity in the face of American racism and violence.” — Dave Gilbert, Mars Hill University
  • "I have never had to ask students to put books down before, until MARCH." — Judith Marks, Olney Charter High School, Philadelphia, PA

MARCH, FEAR AND LOATHING, and THE STORY OF MY TITS Land Five Eisner Nominations!

April 19, 2016 / More →


Comic-Con International announced today the 2016 nominees for the Will Eisner Awards, widely considered among the most prestigious in the comics industry — and Top Shelf Productions is honored to see three books named in five nominations.

March: Book Two, called one of the best books of 2015 by dozens of publications, has already won multiple awards this year. Now, this acclaimed work of civil rights history by Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell joins a handful of other works in a tie for the year's most Eisner nominations, with nods in three categories: Best Publication for Teens, Best Reality-Based Work, and Best Penciller/Inker.

Jennifer Hayden scores her first Eisner nomination, as her witty and heartbreaking memoir of illness, family, and maturity, The Story of My Tits, earns a place in the Best Reality-Based Work category.

And finally, one of the strengths Troy Little brought to his adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was his wildly expressive lettering — and the Eisner committee agrees, handing him a Best Lettering nod, his third career nomination.

April 14, 2016 / More →


“Simply wrenching... Benjamin Frisch subverts the iconography of family cartooning, exposing the seedy underbelly of America’s obsession with the perfect family.” — Jessica Abel, author of La Perdida and Drawing Words & Writing Pictures

“Required reading for the coming sanity wars, this story is the stuff of my nightmares... Cute-ify this monstrosity any way you like, Mr. Frisch, I will be in the fetal position weeping, giving you a thumbs up for a job brutally done.” — Paul Hornschemeier, author of Life With Mr. Dangerous and Mother, Come Home

“Best Emerging Graphic Novelist” The Austin Chronicle

Pre-order now: the divine second half of Eddie Campbell's epic BACCHUS!

April 14, 2016 / More →


"Bacchus mixes air hijacks and ancient gods, gangland drama and legends, police procedural and mythic fantasy, swimming pool cleaners and classics. It shouldn't work, of course, and it works like a charm. ... Eddie Campbell is the unsung King of comic books. ... The man's a genius, and that's an end to it." — Neil Gaiman

"A story of surprising richness and gravity… Bacchus stands as one of Eddie Campbell’s crowning achievements as writer, artist, and executive creator." The Comics Journal

"Campbell's breakneck inking and skittering Zip-a-Tone accents perfectly complement his fantasias of the god of wine and cronies wandering through the twentieth century." — The Village Voice

"Campbell is one of the premier cartoonists of his generation." Publishers Weekly

"No one else in the medium combines emotional truth, literary intelligence, and formal daring with such adroitness and elegance." Booklist

Eddie Campbell’s Bacchus is a true epic, spanning a decade of work, over a thousand pages, and several millennia of alcohol consumption.

In Bacchus, the visionary behind From Hell (with Alan Moore) and Alec: The Years Have Pants presents his version of “an American-style comic book,” filtered through his own brilliant, whimsical, and wide-ranging sensibility. With a fine blend of action, comedy, suspense, and an ear for a great story, Bacchus brings the gods and myths of ancient Greece to modern life, as if they had never left.

Nearly 600 pages, this deluxe volume collects the second half of the Bacchus saga (including 1001 Nights of Bacchus, Hermes vs. the Eyeball Kid, The Picture of Doreen Grey, King Bacchus, and Banged Up), with new notes and commentary by the author.

The Son Rises in the West... as APOCRYPHA NOW hits Emerald City Comicon!

April 5, 2016 / More →

Mark Russell and Shannon Wheeler have brought down the house at comic-cons and book festivals all over America with their book God Is Disappointed in You and its accompanying live presentation, a rip-roaring hour of Biblical comedy.

This weekend, the duo return to Seattle for a special advance debut of their Biblically brilliant sequel, Apocrypha Now, at Emerald City Comicon! Catch their new panel on Sunday at 2:30:

God is Disappointed in You 2: Apocrypha Now
Sunday, April 10th, 2:30p.m. - 3:30p.m.
Room: T301
It's the second coming! Their first book, God Is Disappointed in You, was an irreverent-yet-faithful adaptation of the Bible that got everyone talking. Now, Mark Russell (Prez, The Flintstones) & Shannon Wheeler (The New Yorker, Too Much Coffee Man) are back with a follow-up book, Apocrypha Now, about the stories that DIDN'T make it into the Bible. Some of these stories were forgotten, some suppressed, others were just too freaking weird for the Bible (and that's saying something). In a special advance release for Emerald City, Apocrypha Now is about what the Bible DIDN'T tell you.

They'll also be signing, sketching, and telling their favorite preteen-Jesus stories at Booth #1804 (IDW Publishing) on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

Meanwhile, check out the recent preview excerpt of Apocrypha Now that recently ran over Easter weekend at Nerdist.
