Early this year I had the honor to participate as comic letterer on 23 contributions featured on “Where We Live”, a benefit comic anthology curated by JH Williams III, Wendy Wright-Williams, Will Dennis and Eric Stephenson, with all the proceeds to be donated to a fund of the survivors of the Las Vegas mass-shooting in October 1st 2017.
From the official press release:
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 lineup 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 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 GoFundMe campaign for the survivors in Las Vegas.
