On The Cheap: The Latest Humble Bundle Features ‘Kaptara,’ ‘Bitch Planet’ And More To Benefit The Human Rights Campaign
I’ve been keeping my eye on the Humble Bundle for a long time now to find good deals on cheap comics, and one of the things that still surprises me every time there’s a new one is that there’s always something brand new in there. Take, for instance, the current bundle, which focuses on creator-owned comics from Image. Not only does it have Image mainstays like Invincible, Phonogram, and Saga, but it also includes the first volume of Chip Zdarsky and Kagan McLeod‘s Kaptara, collecting the first five issues of the series.
Folks. Kaptara vol. 1 came out less than a month ago. #6 isn’t even out yet. So on the off chance that you need an economic justification to get a whole bunch of comic books and support LGBT advocacy group the Human Rights Campaign, just imagine that you’re paying full price for Kaptara, Bitch Planet, and Just The Tips, and getting 47 issues of Invincible for free.
Actually, to be honest, Kaptara is available in the “pay what you want” tier along with great recent stuff like Alex de Campi and Carla Speed McNeil‘s No Mercy, and that’s definitely something that you should check out even if you don’t go for the option grab everything. That said, the sheer amount of stuff that you get for $20 would make it worth it, even if the HRC wasn’t a cause worth supporting.
It is worth noting, however, that while I’m assuming they put Saga vol. 4 on there because everyone who wanted the first three already has them, but this is like the fifth time I’ve bought that first volume of Phonogram — and the second time I’ve bought it in a Humble Bundle. But if “I have too many copies of Phonogram” is the worst thing that results from this, I think we can consider it a pretty solid deal.
The Image Humble Bundle runs through January 27.
