“San Diego, CA (September 21, 2016) – 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.”

Comic Book Artists Create Publication to Honor Orlando Victims

The comic book community is coming together to help the victims of theOrlando shooting. In December, DC Comics and IDW Publishing will publish “Love Is Love,” a 144-page comic book whose proceeds will benefit Equality Florida and its fund for those affected by the June 12 attack at the Pulse nightclub in Florida.

dear future wife,

i want you on your best days so i can witness that intoxicating smile of yours but, i also want you on your worst days so i can comfort you and remind you how amazing you are. how blessed i am to have you in my life. i want your tired smile and your drunken self, so i can kiss away that hangover. i want you on nights you can’t sleep so you can wake me up and tell me what’s on your mind, talk my ear off until the sun rises. i want you when you’re laughing at yourself because that is honestly the most beautiful thing ever. i want all of you, forever and always.

love,
your future wife

“Adventure Time: President Bubblegum” by Josh Trujillo, art by Phil Murphy

(Grade 3 and up) The former King of the Candy Kingdom has discovered something incredible: the long lost Constitoootion, which clearly states that Ooo should have a president. Which is fine by Princess Bubblegum–she’s grown weary of her duties as a princess, and would love to have more time for science. But then Bubblegum sees who’s running for president, and she realizes that for the sake of Ooo, she has little choice but to enter the race. But winning is just the first step: the new president of Ooo will have to deal with assassination attempts, an uncooperative Candy Congress, and something so dark and powerful that even the most incredible rainbow pantsuit can’t defeat it! This entertaining graphic novel reminds readers of all ages how surreal and exhausting elections can be. (4 out of 5 stars)

Gaelic fiction

this is an index of every currently in print work of Gaelic fiction that I am aware of, organized by genre and age/target audience (either middle grade/young adult or general/adult). if you’ve read any of these and think they should be in a different category (esp. realistic/contemporary stuff), please let me know!

this list comes from me going through Acair and Comhairle nan Leabhraichean’s websites and then subsequently going through the entire Gaelic fiction collection in the Sabhal Mòr Ostaig library, but I know it’s still incomplete.

middle grade/young adult
includes books in the Sgrìob, Crosgagan, Na Solais, Lasag, and Meanmnach series (all of which fall under the umbrella of “ficsean do dh’òigridh” but which vary wildly in actual target age and reading level). Broadly, Sgrìob, Meanmnach, and Na Solais assume the highest levels of Gaelic competence, whereas Lasag is specifically targeted towards learners and Na Crosgagan is aimed at a younger audience.

Invincible - Chronicles of Nick

Ash: What are you talking about ?
Nick: The kid dead on the ground. Fourteen, Ash. Fourteen. I’m fourteen.
Ash: Yeah ……?
Nick: Ash I’m fourteen.
Ash: Got it. Your fourteen. I’m so proud you can count that high. It’s a testament to the modern American educational system. But I should probably point out that you’re not the only one. I’m told you go to a school with a whole class of – get this – kids who are fourteen.
Nick rolled his eyes at the sarcasm.

Those are some pretty impressive designs to get embroidered on the back of a jacket, to be honest. But they’re still not as cool as the silk jackets that they used to offer back in the day.

A graphic novel about the chaotic and violent life of Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent
by Barbara Stok
SelfMadeHero
2015, 144 pages, 6.8 x 9.5 x 0.6 inches (paperback)
$15 Buy a copy on Amazon

After reading Vincent, a graphic novel/biography by Barbara Stok, I yearned for more. This thickly drawn, quickly read book actually became a spring board for me to research an artist whose work I’ve enjoyed for so many years but didn’t know much about. Through the bold, colorful pages of Vincent, I learned why Van Gogh was such a prolific artist and how his fragile mental health led to a surplus of problems. I discovered his obsession to start an Artist’s Society in the south of France with Gaugain and other contemporaries, and I read about the emotional and financial support he received from his older brother, Theo. Although Van Gogh’s life was often chaotic, violent and depressive, I’m glad Vincent led me to uncover more about the man behind “Starry Night,” “Sunflowers,” and “Irises.”

P.S. This book took award-winning Dutch artist Barbara Stok three years to complete and is the first in the SelfMadeHero’s Art Masters series. It’s also the most translated graphic novel ever produced from The Netherlands. – Carole Rosner

This is a great piece of silent sequential storytelling. We can understand exactly what’s going on and narrative captions are unnecessary. The fact that the majority of the action in the bottom right corner is just off-panel adds to the denouement.

It’s also interesting how much range Prado has. These are not the blocky characters that we’ve seen recently. Instead, these people are polished and sexy, which suits the theme of the story.
