Where We Live Anthology to Benefit Las Vegas Shooting Survivors

Where We Live Anthology to Benefit Las Vegas Shooting Survivors
WHERE WE LIVE ANTHOLOGY TO BENEFIT THE SURVIVORS OF LAS VEGAS SHOOTING

PORTLAND, OR, 10/31/2017 — Image Comics is pleased to announce the forthcoming WHERE WE LIVE anthology curated by JH Williams III, Wendy Wright-Williams, Scott Allie, Dave Stewart, and Image Comics’ Publisher, Eric Stephenson. Proceeds for the anthology will be donated to an existing GoFundMe for the survivors in Vegas, to be announced. Details for submissions will be forthcoming.

“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,” said Williams. “I felt like something needed to be done to help in a unique way. A week passed before the shock cleared enough to decide I wanted to help create a benefit book project for the survivors, along with oversight from Eric Stephenson, Scott Allie, Dave Stewart, and Wendy Wright-Williams. I’m thankful for them and Image Comics offering so quickly to do this. With this book, titled Where We Live, our hope is to not only help those in need after this tragic event, but to also somehow start a real conversation on avenues for preventing this sort of violence from happening again in the future. We ask that you join us in this effort. More details will be forthcoming soon.”

The book will include a variety of perspectives with key themes exploring the: value of a compassionate society, the need for communication/conversations, mental health stigmatization, access to healthcare, gun violence, common sense gun control, history of the 2nd Amendment, why the 2nd Amendment is important to gun owners, role of the NRA in national & local politics, balance of safety & privacy/freedoms, aftermath of tragedy and how individuals & communities persevere, role of the media in tragedies, ongoing need for survivor support, and appreciation of Las Vegas as a community.

“This acerbic book promises to be a nice balance to all the more serious fantasy stories in comics right now, and that it looks good while doing it is icing on the cake.”
—Uproxx

“MAESTROS is manic magic! We've waited too damn long for Steve to have his own
book but this was worth the wait. MAESTROS is a Skroce Hadron Collider where
panel-packed action slams into his wicked sense of humor releasing some of the most
original and gleeful fun comics has seen in some time.” —Lana Wachowski, creator
of The Matrix and Sense8

“Skroce’s expert sequential storytelling and detailed style are a rare treat, and the
opportunity to see him drawing exactly what he pleases is the kind of comics
serendipity that only the creator-owned realm can offer.” —Paste Magazine

"MAESTROS is a masterpiece, with one of the best first issues I've ever read. Steve is
somehow an even greater writer than he is an artist. Get ready for your new favorite
comic." —Brian K. Vaughan

“A beautifully drawn book pulsing with details you can't imagine, featuring wizardry
cloaked in a sheen of sarcastic sleaze.” —The Oregonian

“With MAESTROS, Skroce demonstrates his true expert level conducting skills at
weaving together a story and artwork that leave the mind yearning for more.”
—Comicosity

STEVE SKROCE—STORYBOARD ARTIST FOR THE MATRIX TRILOGY—UNLEASHES MAESTROS THIS OCTOBER

"MAESTROS is a masterpiece." —Brian K. Vaughan

PORTLAND, OR, 07/18/2017 — Superstar comics and storyboard artist Steve Skroce (WE STAND ON GUARD, Wolverine) will take on both writing and art duties in his all-new, totally irreverent and fantastical action-comedy MAESTROS this October from Image Comics.

The Maestro and his entire royal family have been murdered. Now, his banished son from Earth will inherit the Wizard King's throne along with a spell that turns its user into GOD. With enemies everywhere, will this Orlando-born millennial be able to keep his new magic kingdom?

“MAESTROS is a finely seasoned stew of everything I love about the fantasy and action adventure genres,” said Skroce. “I tried to create a universe where all my beloved magical characters and settings might exist together, side by side. The protagonist, Willy Little, isn't a chosen one; he's granted ultimate power through blind luck—but can a nice guy stay nice when no one ever says 'no' to him again?”

MAESTROS #1 (Diamond code: AUG170542) arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, October 18th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, September 25th.
