John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell on Rachel Maddow

I don't watch Rachel Maddow much - I don't have a television, but she's one of those handful of people on tv news who I respect the hell out of because of the work she's done. She's also something of a geek. She's talked about comics in the past, but last night she had Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell on to talk about the book "March". Admittedly I think it's the second best interview with the three that you'll ever see (this is what you get form an opinionated writer who has interviewed them before, so I admit that I may be biased)

All that aside, it's a great book – important and well-written and beautifully made. Also right now (and I hate sounding like an ad or a paid shill) but Top Shelf is offering a digital bundle where you can buy both March and the great old comic book "Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story" with the proceeds going to the Fellowship of Reconciliation, which continues to promote pacifism in the world today.

John Lewis is one of the great American heroes and he and his work and life deserve all the attention they get and then some.
