Scholastic to publish ‘Colin Kaepernick: Change the Game’ graphic novel

Kaepernick will work with co-writer Eve L. Ewing and artist Orlando Caicedo on the project.

Following the release earlier this year of the children’s book I Color Myself Different, athlete/advocate Colin Kaepernick and Scholastic have announced the upcoming publication of Colin Kaepernick: Change the Game, a graphic novel memoir detailing his high school years before he entered the spotlight of professional sports.

The graphic novel will be co-written by Kaepernick and Eve L. Ewing, who wrote Ironheart for Marvel, and illustrated by Orlando Caicedo. It’s also the latest project from Kaepernick Publishing, which also has another graphic novel, Dreamer, set to be released in February.

“I’m excited to continue to grow and expand Kaepernick Publishing’s relationship with Scholastic,” said Colin Kaepernick. “Change the Game is the true story of my high school years–a period punctuated by the trials and triumphs of adolescence. It was during this time that I began to grow unapologetically into my own identity, into my own sense of self. I hope this graphic novel encourages readers to nurture their own evolution and to trust their power—in a phrase—to change the game.”
