Comic book writer Marc Andreyko was hit hard by the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., so he decided to do something about it, reaching out to mastermind what became the new 144-page all-star comic book anthology "Love Is Love."


Andreyko wrote an homage to the 1950s romance comic "Falling In Love," with a happy couple walking through a park and seeing straight, gay and transgender couples of all ages, illustrated by legendary comics artist George Perez.

Andreyko said he was inspired and overwhelmed by how everyone came together on the book, with companies even granting permission to use characters from Superman to Archie.

"If it's the last thing I'm known for, or the only thing I'm known for in my obituary, I'm good with that," Andreyko said. "The fact that this book might make a teenager in Oklahoma's life a little bit easier and give them hope — I mean, what's not to like about that?"
