Overview


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 Route 91 Strong, a non-profit organization.

Comic collection after the Las Vegas shooting – excellent Here you have a large amount of comics and essays following the Mandalay Bay shooting in Las Vegas. A large amount of writers and artists contribute to this benefit book, all condemning gun practice in the USA and praising those who helped in the hour of need. Obviously the contributions vary a lot and we will all have favourites. There's a lot to like and the presentation is professional, interesting, often heartfelt and eminently worthwhile. It begs the question: when will the US have the guts to do away with the Second Amendment and ban the weapons? I know that this is not an opinion that all will agree with but it seems obvious to me.
