Saturday, June 2nd   12p-3p

Please join us in supporting this meaningful collection of perspectives, experiences, and cathartic stories.

 

Guests Include: Greg Pak, Erica Schultz, Justin Jordan,

Monica Gallagher, Matthew Dow Smith, Liana Kangas

 

The WHERE WE LIVE anthology is a riveting collection of both fictional stories
and actual eye-witness accounts told by an all-star lineup of the top talent
working in comics today, on Image Comics.
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 and communities persevere, and an appreciation of Las Vegas as a vibrant community.
WHERE WE LIVE also features stories from local writers and artists as they relate their personal experiences and reactions to this tragedy.
One hundred percent of the proceeds for the WHERE WE LIVE anthology will be donated to an existing  Route91Strong campaign for the survivors in Las Vegas.
********** ********** ********** **********
When a gunman fired on Las Vegas’s Route 91 Harvest music festival on Oct. 1, 2017, 58 people lost their lives and more than 800 were injured by gunfire. It was the worst mass-shooting in United States history, and follows a decade where the issue of gun violence has become more and more prevalent for those living throughout the 50 states.
In response, writer and artist J.H. Williams III, himself a Las Vegas resident and known for his work on Batwoman and Promethea, decided to curate a benefit anthology comic for those who were affected by the shooting. This year that project sees publication in the form of Where We Live, which is scheduled for release on May 30 through Image Comics.

SHADOW HERO

:01 FIRST SECOND

(W) Gene Luen Yang (A/CA) Sonny Liew

In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. He solved crimes and fought injustice just like the other comics characters. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity;
the Green Turtle was the first Asian American super hero.
The comic had a short run before lapsing into obscurity, but the acclaimed author of American Born Chinese, Gene Luen Yang, has finally revived this character in Shadow Hero, a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the Green Turtle.

UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL (2015B #1-6):
SQUIRREL REALLY GOT ME NOW (V3)

MARVEL COMICS

(W) Ryan North, Chip Zdarsky (A) Erica Henderson, Joe Quinones

New series, New Avenger!
With her unique combination of wit, empathy and squirrel powers, computer-science student Doreen Green – a.k.a. the unbeatable Squirrel Girl – is all that stands between the Earth and total destruction. Well, Doreen plus her friends Tippy-Toe (a squirrel) and Nancy (a regular human with no powers). So mainly Squirrel Girl.
And what hope does the Earth have if she gets hurled back in time to the 1960s and erased from history? At least Nancy will never forget her friend, but what invincible armored Avenger can she call on to help, through the magic of social media?
Decades apart, can they avert doom, or will everything go wrong forever? Howard the Duck hopes not – he has an appointment for a crossover!
