Next Week: March is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis' lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis' personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement. 

Book One spans John Lewis' youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall. 

Many years ago, John Lewis and other student activists drew inspiration from the 1958 comic book "Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story." Now, his own comics bring those days to life for a new audience, testifying to a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.

Unfortunately, Deadpool considers him something of a sidekick, and it's always the sidekick who takes one for the team. And Bob's got the bruises and mental scars to prove it.

Next Week:  Another fan chose book for March Madness, Superman Secret Identity: In this critically acclaimed work from writer Kurt Busiek (ASTRO CITY) and artist Stuart Immonen (Ultimate X-Men), an alternate “Clark Kent” encounters complications the real Superman never had to handle: a career, a wife, children—a real life. 

Despite his iconic name, Clark Kent from Picketsville, Kansas, is just a normal kid whose parents thought they were being clever. He can’t fly, or see through walls, or shrug off speeding bullets—that is, until the day he can. And it’s all much harder than it looks in the comics.

Follow Clark across the decades as this man with powers tries to prove he can make the world a safer place without sacrificing everything.

May the 4th be With You

No sun ever sets on the evil empire, so of course there is no time off for a minion of the empire.  However, IF I were to get a day off, and on a Jedi holiday no less, I would like to relax with a Star Wars cocktail.  I haven't tried any of these personally, but I hope at some point I will be able to.  Enjoy, and May the force be with you!
