Highlight of Comic Con, maybe ever? Civil Rights legend, Rep. John Lewis appears on a panel to discuss his graphic memoir, March: Book Two and then does a little cosplay dressed as his younger self from the March on Selma.  Wait, it gets better!  Then Congressman Lewis led two dozen third-graders from Oak Park Elementary on an impromptu march through the hall!!!  Read the full story from Michael Cavna here.
