On October 1, 2017, Las Vegas, Nevadasuffered the worst mass shooting in modern American history, resulting in 58deaths and over 500 injured. It broke my heart. Las Vegas is my home. I feltlike something needed to be done to help in a unique way." -- JHWILLIAMS III, Artist & CuratingEditor

This "unique way"was the genesis of the WHERE WE LIVE anthology--a riveting collection ofboth fictional stories and actual eye-witness accounts told by an all-starline-up of the top talent working in comics today. All the creators havegraciously volunteered their time and talent to help bring some sense to thissenseless act and, in the process, raise money for the survivors and theirfamilies.

The book will include avariety of perspectives with key themes exploring gun violence, common sense guncontrol, value of a compassionate society, mental health stigmatization,aftermath of tragedy and how individuals & communities persevere and anappreciation of Las Vegas as a vibrantcommunity.

100% of the proceeds forthe WHERE WE LIVE anthology will be donated to Route 91 Strong, a non-profitorganization.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Including 95 comics by nearly 200 creators, this massive, powerful volume documents a wide array of voices and stories raised in protest against gun violence, created as a response to the October 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas. Eyewitness Lee Schoeppner's memories of the tragedy are single frames: a bloody cowboy hat, a gunshot, his wife running. "When I think back, I see static images. I guess that's my mind's way of coping," says Schoeppner, whose story is captured panel by panel in "Lee-Haunted." Some entries feel raw and furious, such as "Untitled," a rant from Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers): "Every time we go on goddamn Twitter or Facebook, the world reminds us it's gone to shit! But! None of us know what to do." Other pieces paint historical contexts for Americans' relationship with guns, including "Reconstruction" by Malachi Ward (Expansion), about how African-Americans used guns to defend against white supremacist mobs. But, often, few words are necessary: a heart-stopping page by Mike Mignola (Hellboy) shows a person destroying a machine gun in front of a pile of blood-red skeletons. The figure shouts only one word: "Enough!" The crowd of creators in this packed volume shouts along-enough-with its rallying call to action. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
