DC Comics and IDW are joining forces to raise money for survivors of the Orlando shooting, publishing a 144-page anthology comic called Love is Love.

The proceeds from Love is Love will go to the LGBTQ charity Equality Florida. Marc Andreyko, the writer who organized the project, compared Love is Love to other pop-culture charity fundraisers like Live Aid and “We Are The World.”

The comic will include over 100 stories between one and two pages long, including single-page artworks like the Rafael Albuquerque Batwoman pinup shared by the publishers. They haven’t revealed the entire creative team yet, but the New York Times announcement included an unexpected selection of famous names: comedian Patton Oswalt, screenwriter Damon Lindelof (Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness), writer/artist Phil Jimenez (Wonder Woman, The Invisibles) and artist Olivier Coipel (Thor, Avengers.)

Love is Love will be out in December, retailing at $9.99.
