about

First you march, then you run. From the #1 bestselling, award–winning team behind March comes the first book in their new, groundbreaking graphic novel series, Run: Book One

Run recounts the lost history of what too often follows dramatic change—the pushback of those who refuse it and the resistance of those who believe change has not gone far enough.

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. AndrewAydin is an award-winning comics writer.
