The charity book that intends to raise money for the survivors of the atrocious Las Vegas shooting has found its editor in former Vertigo and DC editor Will Dennis.
Former Dark Horse Executive Senior Editor Scott Allie who has recently gone freelance, was previously announced as editor on the book, but some reshuffling seems to have taken place.
When Eric asked me to join the team, I was really overcome with emotion. The magnitude of this tragedy is incomprehensible and if i can help in any way to bring some small measure of relief to the survivors, I’m there without hesitation. There’s already been an amazing outpouring from creators and I’m certain the end result will be extremely powerful.
He adds his name, and impressive résumé, to a growing list of comic book legends that include Neil Gaiman, Mike Mignola and curator JH Williams III.
And, we also have more details on the book’s thought-provoking content:
The book will include a variety of perspectives with key themes exploring: value of a compassionate society, 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.
Educational, informative and, above all, supportive of the survivors.
Again, more on this worthy project as it developed over the coming weeks and months.
