DC Entertainment has teamed with IDW Publishing to honor the victims of Orlando's Pulse Nightclub tragedy by publishing Love Is Love, an anthology of over 100 short graphic stories curated by Batwoman and Wonder Woman '77 writer Marc Andreyko. All material has been donated by the book's writers, artists and editors, with all proceeds going to victims, survivors, and their families via Equality Florida.
In the wake of the Orlando shootings, Andreyko recruited a group of fellow comic book creators as collaborators, and received an overwhelming response across the comic book community and beyond, with over 200 writers and artists lending their talents.
Love Is Love will debut in comic book shops and bookstores this December. The anthology graphic novel is a 144-page love letter to the LGBTQ community containing moving and heartfelt stories—some using iconic DC characters—from some of the greatest talent in comics, including Phil Jimenez, Steve Sadowski, Paul Jenkins, Mike Carey, Matt Wagner, Marguerite Bennett, Aneke, Damon Lindelof, Patton Oswalt, Steven Orlando, Rafael Albuquerque, Jason Aaron, Jason Latour, James Asmus, Ming Doyle, James Tynion IV, Cecil Castellucci, Brandon Peterson, Jesus Saiz, Olivier Coipel, Leinil Yu, Elsa Charretier, and many more to be announced.
"When tragedy happens, art responds. And after the Pulse massacre, the comics community responded quickly, decisively, and with open hearts," said Andreyko in a statement. “I could not be more proud of this book, or to be a member of the comics community. The talent and emotion on every page is staggering. Love is Love mourns the 49 lost, honors the survivors, and celebrates love in all forms."
Love Is Love can be pre-ordered now.
