Love is Love: DC Comics To Honor Pulse Orlando Victims
DC Comics and IDW Publishing are coming together to release a special edition comic this December. It’s called ‘Love is Love’ and the project was organized by comic book writer Marc Andreyko.
Most importantly is the reasoning behind ‘Love is Love’ – that being the comic book community joining together to help the victims of June’s Pulse Orlando shooting. The proceeds will be going to Equality Orlando; specifically to the fund that organization started to benefit the shooting victims.
As a comic reader and fan and someone who has lived in the Orlando area and had loose connections to many of the people involved in the tragedy at Pulse, I’m really excited for ‘Love is Love’…although to be honest, I’m not even sure whether I’m more excited for the stories or the art. I mean, look at the Batwoman picture above – it’s amazing!
‘Love is Love’ will be 144 pages long and include more than 100 stories, as each story will be just one or two pages. The short length of the stories was determined early on, as Andreyko knew that keeping each one brief would make artists more likely to commit to the project.
Andreyko also helped bring many of the writers and artists together, comparing doing so to e-Harmony and explaining that he was “Mixing and matching and seeing who felt right.” The creators signed on to ‘Love is Love’ include Patton Oswalt, Phil Jimenez, Damon Lindelof, and more.
While there isn’t any information yet on an exact release date or whether ‘Love is Love’ will be a comic book shop exclusive or available online as well, we do know that the price is set at $9.99. I for one will definitely be keeping an eye out for more news on how to get my hands on a copy of ‘Love is Love’ as soon as possible.
