Love is Love #1
The comic industry comes together in honor of those killed in Orlando. Co-published by two of the premiere publishers in comics—DC and IDW, this oversize comic contains moving and heartfelt material from some of the greatest talent in comics, mourning the victims, supporting the survivors, celebrating the LGBTQ community, and examining love in today’s world. All material has been kindly donated by the writers, artists, and editors with all proceeds going to victims, survivors, and their families. Be a part of a historic comics event! It doesn’t matter who you love. All that matters is you love.
The 144-page book is comprised of two-page stories from some of the biggest creators inside and outside of the comic book industry, each telling a different story that drives home the idea that it doesn't matter who you love, all that matters is you love in the first place.
Creators such as Jason Aaron, Jim Lee, Paul Dini, Gail Simon, Steve Orlando, comedian/writer Patton Oswalt, and over 300 more all had a hand in Love is Love.
