Over $100K in WHERE WE LIVE anthology proceeds given to benefit survivors of Vegas shooting one year later

Image Comics is pleased to announce that local New York Times bestselling artist J.H. Williams, will grant the proceeds raised by the WHERE WE LIVE anthology book published by Image Comics this Friday, September 21 at 12 PM to Lisa Fine Survivor, Co-Founder & President of the non-profit, Route91Strong. The event will be held at Red Rock Resort & Spa, 11011 W Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135.

“When Jim first came to me about this project and his plans to support and give back to his community in Vegas, I knew Image had to do this,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “I think people everywhere have been looking for ways to reach out to the survivors, and a year later, I am thrilled to sign off on a check for over $100,000 that we look forward to seeing go toward rebuilding lives that were ripped apart on that tragic day.”

Williams added: “Wendy and I are so thankful to Image Comics, and to everyone who donated their time and talents to this effort. And thank you to everyone who has purchased Where We Live, or will be soon. The book wouldn’t have been possible without everyone’s support and caring. You’ve all helped people.”

J.H. and Wendy Williams along with survivors Lisa Fine and Christina Caria will be joined by special guests and survivors of the Vegas Shooting that occurred a year ago on October 1st.

WHERE WE LIVE anthology (ISBN: 9781534308220) is available now and can be purchased at your local comic shop, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.

ABOUT WHERE WE LIVE ANTHOLOGY
“On October 1, 2017, Las Vegas, Nevada suffered the worst mass shooting in modern American history, resulting in 58 deaths and over 500 injured. It broke my heart. Las Vegas is my home. I felt like something needed to be done to help in a unique way.” — JH WILLIAMS III, Artist & Curating Editor

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 line-up 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 & communities persevere and an appreciation of Las Vegas as a vibrant community.

100% of the proceeds for the WHERE WE LIVE anthology will be donated to Route91Strong, a non-profit organization.

"Man. Myth. Legend. Ladies Man." There are many words that can be used to describe Manny...unfortunately, none of those apply. "DJ, Cat Lover, Man-Child, Wookie" will have to do.
