The June 2016 shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando was one of the most tragic events of this year, sending an arrow through the heart of the LGBTQIA community. There have been several tributes already, as well. Now, two of the biggest publishers in comics are joining forces to create an anthology to benefit the survivors of that horrible event.

DC Comics and IDW Publishing announced yesterday that they are teaming up on a comics anthology, the proceeds of which will benefit Equality Florida, specifically to the fund that benefits the survivors of the Pulse shooting.

The anthology, called Love is Love and edited by Marc Andreyko (Manhunter, Batwoman), will contain 100 1-2 page stories across 144 pages by an all-star team of comics creators including: comedian Patton Oswalt, Damon Lindelof (Lost), Phil Jimenez (Superwoman) and Olivier Coipel (The Unworthy Thor).

According to Comics Alliance, several creators like Steve Orlando, Iain Laurie, James Tynion IV, Molly Osertag, James Asmus, Ryan Ferrier and Ming Doyle also announced their participation via Twitter.

Love is Love is set to drop in December, and will retail for $9.99.
