2016-09-25T00:23:50ZMedia Release -- IDW Publishing, with the support of DC Entertainment, will honor the victims of Orlando's Pulse Nightclub tragedy by publishing LOVE IS LOVE, an anthology graphic novel curated by writer Marc Andreyko (BATWOMAN, WONDER WOMAN '77). In the wake of this devastating event, Andreyko assembled a group of fellow comic book creators to contribute to the benefit project. Andreyko received an overwhelming response across the comic book community and beyond, with over 200 writers and artists lending their talents to LOVE IS LOVE, a collection of over 100 short graphic stories. All material has been donated by the writers, artists, and editors, with all proceeds going to victims, survivors, and their families via EQUALITY FLORIDA. LOVE IS LOVE will debut in comic book shops and bookstores this December. The anthology graphic novel is a 144-page love letter to the LGBTQ community containing moving and heartfelt stories—some using iconic DC characters—from some of the greatest talent in comics, including Phil Jimenez, Steve Sadowski, Paul Jenkins, Mike Carey, Matt Wagner, Marguerite Bennett, Aneke, Damon Lindelof, Patton Oswalt, Steven Orlando, Rafael Albuquerque, Jason Aaron, Jason Latour, James Asmus, Ming Doyle, James Tynion IV, Cecil Castellucci, Brandon Peterson, Jesus Saiz, Olivier Coipel, Leinil Yu, Elsa Charretier, and many more to be announced. "When tragedy happens, art responds. And after the Pulse massacre, the comics community responded quickly, decisively, and with open hearts," said project organizer and writer Andreyko. "I could not be more proud of this book, or to be a member of the comics community. The talent and emotion on every page is staggering. LOVE IS LOVE mourns the 49 lost, honors the survivors, and celebrates love in all forms." "When Marc brought this project to me, there was no hesitation about us getting involved," said IDW Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall. "To echo Marc's sentiments, we are proud of the hard work and talent that has gone into this project and to be involved in any way to support the survivors and their families in the face of tragedy." "We're deeply thankful to all the participants who donated their work to LOVE IS LOVE," said Sarah Gaydos, Group Editor for IDW Publishing. "The outpouring of emotion from their work honors the LGBTQ community, and helps express the grief we're all feeling." "Marc's heartfelt passion for this cause and this project has inspired everyone involved in LOVE IS LOVE," explains Jamie Rich, Group Editor of DC's Vertigo imprint. "As an editor on the book, I continue to be moved every day by the expressions of hope and love the contributors have put forth, and can only imagine the profound impact the book will have on readers, as well." The contributors behind LOVE IS LOVE have banded together to send a powerful message through their art that they stand with the victims of this national tragedy. Help spread the love this December and become part of this historic comics event. Pre-order LOVE IS LOVE here.

(image) Media Release -- DC Entertainment adds more phenomenal talent to its creative roster, announcing today that The New York Times bestselling author James Tynion IV will create comic book content solely for the company's DC and Vertigo imprints. Tynion has written for titles such as BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, BATMAN ETERNAL and CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER, and is the current writer of fan-favorite DETECTIVE COMICS since its relaunch in June.
"DC is home to my favorite characters in the comics industry, and now I'm getting the chance to write a lot of those characters twice a month in DETECTIVE COMICS, the comic book that gives our great company its name," stated Tynion. "Being part of the DC family has been a dream, and I'm happy to make it official. We are already working on amazing stories coming in the next few years, and I can't wait to get a chance to write them."
Tynion's association with the Dark Knight is extensive, beginning his career co-writing BATMAN's "Night of the Owls" storyline, as well as working with other Bat family members with his work on BATMAN ETERNAL, TALON, BATMAN & ROBIN ETERNAL and the popular DC/IDW crossover BATMAN/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. His current run on DETECTIVE COMICS displays an epic team-up that has never been seen before in Gotham. As a new threat arises, Batman will seek the help of Batwoman to recruit Spoiler, Red Robin, Cassandra Cain and even the villainous Clayface to push the young vigilantes to be the next generation of great heroes.
"We're incredibly excited that James is coming aboard as part of the DC Talent family," says Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief, DC. "You can see his love and enthusiasm for every member of the BATMAN cast on every page of his current run on DETECTIVE COMICS. Fans are going to be on the edge of their seats when they see what James has got coming up!"
At WonderCon 2016, it was announced that DETECTIVE COMICS would return to original numbering for the REBIRTH initiative, with Tynion as writer and art by Eddy Barrows and Alvaro Martinez. Tynion began his run on DETECTIVE COMICS in June with issue #934. This series ships twice monthly and the latest issue is out today. Pick up DETECTIVE COMICS #940 at a comic book store near you. For more information, check out his exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly.
