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 an historic comics event! It doesn’t matter who you love. All that matters is you love.


This won’t be a standard review because this isn’t a standard comic. It’s a memorial to all those who perished during the slaying at the Pulse Night Club in Orlando early in 2016. There is no plot or story only a simple subject: Love. Love told through poems, one page stories, splash pages, and written words from all different viewpoints. Not only about the shooting or about the LGBTQ community but about being human and the pain others inflict sometime without rhyme or reason.

This book is powerful. Few comics require breaks and breathers because it’s so heavy with emotions. You will feel something different with every turn of the page. This is not a light read but sometimes people need to come out of their comfort zone to truly understand what is happening in the world around them.

Love Is Love


The book is backed by an all-star cast of different creators from all across comics. Artists and writers such as Jason Aaron, Dave Acosta, Robert Aguirre-Sacasa, Rafael Albuquerque, Jason Shaw Alexander and Laura Allred just to name a few as this is only the first row in a massive sheet of talent which went into creating this book. Each brings a unique and original style to this book which blends together to create a work which is truly a marvel to behold.


This book, much like Heroes: The World’s Greatest Super Creators Honor The World’s Greatest Heroes 9-11-2001, sets out to continue a never ending task. It tries to find hope and make sense in a world which is full of fear and intolerance. All of the profits of this book will go to help the victims and families who were scared by the tragedy which occurred on June 12th, 2016. Buy a copy and maybe even get one for the person in your life who didn’t know how to feel or responded to the event in a negative way. Maybe this book will help to open their eyes and understand the world a little better. Just keep a box of tissues handy. You will need them. I sure did.
