The WHERE WE LIVE anthology is a riveting collection of both fictional stories and actual eye-witness accounts told by an all-star lineup of the top talent working in comics today, on Image Comics.

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 and communities persevere, and an appreciation of Las Vegas as a vibrant community.

WHERE WE LIVE also features stories from local writers and artists as they relate their personal experiences and reactions to this tragedy. One hundred percent of the proceeds for the WHERE WE LIVE anthology will be donated to an existing GoFundMe campaign for the survivors in Las Vegas.

********** ********** ********** **********

When a gunman fired on Las Vegas’s Route 91 Harvest music festival on Oct. 1, 2017, 58 people lost their lives and more than 800 were injured by gunfire. It was the worst mass-shooting in United States history, and follows a decade where the issue of gun violence has become more and more prevalent for those living throughout the 50 states.

In response, writer and artist J.H. Williams III, himself a Las Vegas resident and known for his work on Batwoman and Promethea, decided to curate a benefit anthology comic for those who were affected by the shooting. This year that project sees publication in the form of Where We Live, which is scheduled for release on May 30 through Image Comics.

“We also have some of the top comic book dealers in the world like Metropolis Collectibles, owners of the $3.2 Million first appearance of Superman comic book, and Dave’s American Comics, as well as Jersey stores like Zapp! Comics, Fat Moose and East Side Mags,” said promoter and founder Dave O’Hare.

“At its heart the GS Comic Fest is going to be a good old fashioned comic book convention that’s fun, fan friendly and affordable. We will have new and rare comics, art, toys and other collectibles,” O’Hare said.

“We decided to move locations to the Mennen Sports Arena, increasing our size to almost 25,000 square feet and over 200 tables and booths,” said Sal Zurzolo, O’Hare’s co-owner/promoter. “That along with the switch from one to two days allows us to bring in more A-plus exhibitors.”

“At The Garden State Comic Fest you can diversify your portfolio by investing in valuable collectibles,” O’Hare noted. “Wannabe artists can get advice from our published professionals. Individuals can sell their comics, get lucky and win a door prize or enter and win over a thousand dollars in prizes in the costume contest, art contest, and trivia contests.”

Also featured will be nationally renowned cosplayers (costume players), coming from around the country like BelleChere and Mikomi Chan, plus local favorites like Ruby Rinekso and Brea Biaa.
