Columnist Michael Cavna has released his picks for Best Graphic Novels of 2015 in The Washington Post, and John Lewis’s second nonfiction volume of events of the Civil Rights Movement, March: Book 2, has topped the list. 

The title was also the top pick on Publishers Weeky’s 2015 list (see “PW's Top Graphic Novels of 2015”), but did not appear on Amazon’s list (“Amazon's Best Graphic Novels - 2015”).
