The comic book devoted to the victims of Pulse nightclub tragedy will be published by the end of this year. Backed by DC Comics, IDW Publishing the book features one hundred short comics penned by a number of writers, benefiting the fund for Orlando survivors maintained by LGBT charity Equality Florida. ‘Love is love’ book will contain 144 pages of LGBT love stories.

Batwoman writer Marc Andreyko, who is organising the project, told 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.” A number of big comic book names including Damon Lindelof, Patton Oswalt, Phil Jimenez and Olivier Coipel will contribute short comics to the book, which will sell for $9.99. Andreyko quipped: “I purposely said it would be a one-page thing to get people to commit.”
