Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love is Love is Love It is such an easy, simple truth really. One we learn as small children. ‎Love Is Love. But some people forget this and grow into hate, which is unfortunate and causes so many problems in the world. Love Is Love is a graphic novel published in 2016 By IDW Publishing and DC Comics and was organized by writer artist Marc Andreyko. Started after the horrors of the Pulse Nightclub domestic terrorist shooting on June 12, 2016, the creators involved volunteered their time with the money raised going to survivors and victims families. Love Is Love is a thick, 144 page volume, that won the Eisner Award for Best Anthology and made the New York Times bestsellers list. Love Is Love contains tons of one page and two page and so forth contributions from a legion of storytellers. They range from all sorts of genres and feature creators that I have and have not heard of. The various styles utilized give this wonderful volume a taste of the differences the comics form promises. This feels like the idealized world of graphic literature Scott McCloud wished for in his Understanding Comics series. I am sure this has been done before, but I wonder if it was ever for a cause that celebrated diversity as much as that book did. Sometimes it is a pinup, sometimes a full story, and sometimes a slice of humanity, but they all propel forward the message very powerfully. One notable and important contribution is J.K. Rowling lending her Harry Potter characters to the cause. Dumbledore leads the way here, delivered by artist Jim Lee. All these diverse talents are unified in one simple message, and they convey it so very very well. Love Is Love. One some unlearn as they grow up. It is such a shame that this is reality. Hopefully Love Is Love can help fix this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kinda neat The idea is neat, but with one page only stories everything is relatively shallow. Some pretty art.
