Brian Michael Bendis has announced that he is working on a short story with artists Michael Avon Oeming and Taki Soma to appear in Image Comics' planned anthology to benefit the survivors of the Las Vegas Shooting, Where We Live.

“On October 1, 2017, Las Vegas, Nevada suffered the worst mass shooting in modern American history, resulting in 58 deaths and over 500 injured. It broke my heart. Las Vegas is my home,” said J.H. Williams 3, who is organizing Where We Live. “I felt like something needed to be done to help in a unique way. A week passed before the shock cleared enough to decide I wanted to help create a benefit book project for the survivors, along with oversight from Eric Stephenson, Scott Allie, Dave Stewart, and Wendy Wright-Williams."

I’m thankful for them and Image Comics offering so quickly to do this. With this book, titled Where We Live, our hope is to not only help those in need after this tragic event, but to also somehow start a real conversation on avenues for preventing this sort of violence from happening again in the future. We ask that you join us in this effort. More details will be forthcoming soon.” - See more at: https://imagecomics.com/content/view/where-we-live-anthology-to-benefit-the-survivors-of-las-vegas-shooting#sthash.GS1SBElt.dpuf

Although Bendis recently signed a "exclusive" deal with DC Comics, those agreements routinely have exceptions placed in for the contracted creator to work on some outside comics projects.

Where We Live's release date is unknown.
