There’s a certain kind of nonfiction comic book that is worthy, important and educational — and dull as dishwaterMarch, the third and final volume of which publishes this week, is not that kind of comic book.

At the heart of March is John Lewis, Georgia representative and Civil Rights hero, telling his story from his wannabe preacher childhood in rural Alabama to the march on Selma and the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965.

A project that began because Lewis loved a 10-cent comic book about Martin Luther King back in 1957 has now succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.
