A work of art is coming together for 1 October.

Local artist J. H. Williams III is putting together a special comic book. You won't see superheroes and villains. The colorful pages will share true stories from 1 October survivors, witnesses, and everyday people doing heroic things.

"When reading some of the content, talking to some of them it easily can put us in tears," said Williams.

The comic book will be called  "Where We Live". Money made from it will go to the victims.

"We want it personal. We want it to personalize these people. You know, that they're not a statistic," said Wendy Wright-Williams, a contributor to the project. This project is unlike anything Williams has tackled in his long career.

"There's so much weight to working on this stuff that anything else but quite and focus on the material felt like that was the only way to do it," said Williams.

You can already preorder the book at local comic book shops using the code MAR180600. They're hoping to finish the book in May 2018.

They might not be superheroes, but they're hoping the money from this could save the day for a victim in need.
