Posted by at 1:06 pm on December 7, 2016

Archie Comics has announced its participation in the historic Love is Love anthology graphic novel honoring the victims of Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub tragedy with two stories featuring Archie Comics characters designed to show support for the LGBTQ community.

Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, artist Stephen Byrne, and Archie legend Dan Parent have crafted two heartfelt and moving pieces featuring Kevin Keller, Archie, and other Archie Comics characters as they stand with the victims of this national tragedy and the entire LGBTQ community.

“For as long as I’ve been steering the ship at Archie, we have striven to showcase the town of Riverdale as a welcoming, inclusive and friendly place for everyone,” said Archie Comics CEO/Publisher Jon Goldwater.

“It made perfect sense to join forces with our friends at IDW and DC Entertainment to include Kevin Keller, Archie, and his friends in Love is Love. We’re honored to be part of such an important book and will continue to strive for a real world that’s as safe as Riverdale.”

The Love is Love collection, curated by writer Marc Andreyko, and features artwork from dozens of collaborators in the comic book industry. The project is designed to send a powerful message of support to the victims, survivors, and their families. All materials for the book have been donations and all the proceeds will go directly to the families and victims via EQUALITY FLORIDA.
