Titled ‘Love is Love,’ the comic is a collection of one- and two-page stories created by various artists and writers working together. It is set to launch in December.
The proceeds will go towards Equality Florida and their fund to aid victims of the Pulse Nightclub attack that took the lives of 49 people and injured 53 others.

Andreyko has worked on comics such as Batwoman, Manhunter and more. For ‘Love is Love,’ he recruited creators such as Phil Jiminez (known for Superwoman), Oliver Coipel (Legion of Super-Heroes) and comedian Patton Oswald.
“Events like this shouldn’t be compartmentalized,” he told NYT. “They should hurt and we should want to change for the better.”
