Brad Meltzer, who is widely known for his Justice League of America comic book series, is all set to present his new graphic novel titled I Am Gandhi: A Graphic Biography of a Hero .
The novel iswritten by Meltzer and illustrated by about two-dozen top artists and published by Dial Books, will release in May 2018.
Meltzer had been working on his children’s book “I Am Gandhi,” which was published in October, to help students learn about the Indian human-rights icon.
“I gave the script of it to my 15-year-old son. I just wanted him to hear the message. As he was reading, I was reading over his shoulder. And then it hit me: I needed Gandhi’s lessons as much as he did,” says Meltzer.
“We get to put Gandhi’s message into the world. As I told my son that first night: ‘No one wins in a fight.’ Right now, the world needs to hear that. We need more love in the world and less hate,” he added.
The top artistic slate also includes Art Adams, John Cassaday, Carlos D’Anda, Michael Gaydos, Stephanie Hans, Phil Jimenez, David LaFuente, David Mack, Alex Maleev, Francis Manapul, Steve McNiven, Saumin Patel, Stephane Roux, Marco Rudy, Kamome Shirahama, Bill Sienkiewicz and Abhishek Singh.
All royalties from the book will go to Seeds of Peace, a nonprofit group that seeks to cultivate future global leaders.
