Despite having no new graphic novel to promote, Congressman John Lewis, March writer Andrew Aydin, and artist Nate Powell returned to Comic-Con International in San Diego for their annual March panel on Saturday morning. Top Shelf Productions’ trilogy documenting Congressman Lewis’s civil rights crusade has concluded, but Aydin hinted that there might be another civil rights-oriented graphic novel in his future during the panel’s question and answer session.
When questioned by an attendee as to whether Aydin might continue to write additional stories about other historical “freedom fighters,” specifically referencing Congressman Lewis’ U.S. House of Representatives colleague Maxine Waters, Aydin simply stated, “Stay tuned.” Both the question and Aydin’s response generated massive applause from the hopeful audience.
Aydin’s brief and vague reply alone doesn’t point towards any definitive plans, but in conjunction with his interest in comics and history of lecturing about civil rights, his response indicates some desire in continuing his comics career. When later asked to elaborate on his potential plans, Aydin declined to comment. Aydin already serves as Congressman Lewis’ media director.
In reference to the completion of the March trilogy, Aydin stated at last year’s panel, “[March] was my purpose, for pretty much all of my adult life so far.” Aydin, 33, certainly has plenty of time to continue a potential comics writing career, should he choose to do so.
