Much has been written, said and one in honour of the tragedy that shook Orlando and the LGBT community.
Support has been offered, money has been raised, and solidarity has been shown. But now, DC have revealed that they will be producing a special comic book with the proceeds doing to the Equality Fund in aid of the Orlando shooting victims.
The home of legendary superheroes Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman will be teaming up with IDW Publishing to create a 144 page comic to support the families and victims of the Pulse tragedy.
The comic will be appropriately titled Love is Love, and will contain 100 stories no more than a page or two in length.
Marc Andreyko, the comic book and screen writer behind the project, spoke to the New York Times: “I’m a child of the 80s; I grew up with ‘We Are the World’ and Live Aid. Events like this shouldn’t be compartmentalised. They should hurt and we should want to change for the better.”
When discussing the relatively short length of the pieces within the comic, he said: ““I purposely said it would be a one-page thing to get people to commit. I was e-Harmony-ing people. Mixing and matching and seeing who felt right.”
The people who contributed to the comic include Damon Lindelof, Patton Oswalt, Phil Jimenez and Olivier Coipel.
The Love is Love comic is going to cost $9.99 and will be out in December, with the funds going to Equality Fund as previously mentioned. I can’t wait to see what stories they have in store for us!
