J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, has kindly given permission to use images of her characters in a new book dedicated to the Orlando Pulse victims, reports Pink News.

In June 2016, a lone gunman entered the LGBT nightclub in Orlando Florida and opened fire on the crowd, killing 49 people.

The aforementioned artwork will be a part of an anthology comic book titled “Love is Love” with all proceeds going to those affected by the tragedy.

Jim Lee created the large illustrated collection which will feature 100 different images remembering the fallen.  

Lee’s drawing unifies Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley and Albus Dumbledore, collectively creating a giant rainbow with a quote taken from the fourth novel, “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” in which Dumbledore says:

“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”

The authors of “Love is Love” say the comic book community wanted to honor those lost in the Pulse massacre.

“Co-published by two of the premiere publishers in comics – DC and IDW, this oversize comic contains moving and heartfelt material from some of the greatest talent in comics, mourning the victims, supporting the survivors, celebrating the LGBTQ community, and examining love in today’s world.

They add, “All material has been kindly donated by the writers, artists, and editors with all proceeds going to victims, survivors, and their families. Be a part of an historic comics event! It doesn’t matter who you love. All that matters is you love.”

The book is scheduled to release on December 28, and copies are already going quickly.
