Description

On October 1, 2017, Las Vegas, Nevada
suffered the worst mass shooting in modern American history, resulting in 58
deaths and over 500 injured. It broke my heart. Las Vegas is my home. I felt
like something needed to be done to help in a unique way." - JH
WILLIAMS III, Artist & Curating
Editor

This "unique way"
was the genesis of the WHERE WE LIVE anthology-a riveting collection of
both fictional stories and actual eye-witness accounts told by an all-star
line-up of the top talent working in comics today. All the creators have
graciously volunteered their time and talent to help bring some sense to this
senseless act and, in the process, raise money for the survivors and their
families.

The book will include a
variety of perspectives with key themes exploring gun violence, common sense gun
control, value of a compassionate society, mental health stigmatization,
aftermath of tragedy and how individuals & communities persevere and an
appreciation of Las Vegas as a vibrant
community.

100% of the proceeds for
the WHERE WE LIVE anthology will be donated to Route 91 Strong, a non-profit
organization.

Review quote

LIBRARY JOURNAL (STARRED) -- The graphic anthology
9-11: Emergency Relief raised money for the Red Cross. The recent Love
Is Love supported victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting, while Puerto
Rico Strong assisted Hurricane Maria disaster relief. Now Las Vegas
residents and curators J.H. Williams III (Batwoman; The Sandman:
Overture) and wife Wendy Wright-Williams offer a collection of 75 short
comics from creators around the world in response to the 2017 mass shooting, the
worst in modern American history. Eyewitness accounts, quirky parables and
allegories, commentaries from varied viewpoints, and fictional entries about
violence, victims, and community comprise this devastating, kaleidoscopic work
compiled by former DC/Vertigo editor Dennis, with assistant Michael Perlman. The
more than 160 contributors, including numerous comics luminaries-Neil Gaiman,
Mike Mignola, Gail Simone, and Fabio Moon as well as curator
Williams-present various art styles that collectively exhibit beauty,
thoughtfulness, and visceral punch in depicting tragedy and compassion: how
"Everything matters. Everyone matters." Proceeds will be donated to
Route 91 Strong. Verdict This wrenching and inspiring read deserves
prominent display in all public and high school libraries to encourage
meditation, understanding, and discussion among everyone willing to look beyond
the headlines.
