We've written about the Humble Bundle before here at ComicsAlliance, but let's be real here: It's kind of the perfect idea. Being able to pay what you want to grab a whole cartload of comics while also supporting a charity is a setup that has literally no downside, and it's almost impossible to take advantage of -- especially when it's something like the new Boom! Studios bundle.
For the next two weeks, you'll be able to pay what you want for a massive amount of downloadable comics while also supporting the good work of the Comic Book Legal defense Fund. And, if you pay at least $15, you'll get ComicsAlliance favorites like Lumberjanes, The Midas Flesh and Bee and Puppycat thrown in for good measure.
The interesting thing about this particular bundle is that it includes some very recent comics. Books like Lumberjanes #4 and Midas Flesh #8 were only released this month, and RoboCop #2 actually came out in stores today. Being able to get them here digitally is a pretty big deal.
I like comic books a lot, and since I tend to fall pretty close to a Scrooge McDuckian philosophy when it comes to spending money, I like getting them as cheap as I possibly can. And because I've taken superhero comics pretty seriously ever since I was a kid, I've also tend to be pretty into helping people out whenever I can. That's why I'm always glad when something like the Dynamite 10th Anniversary Humble Bundle comes across my desk and gives me the opportunity to get a gigantic stack of comics for whatever I want to pay, while also getting the money to some very good causes.
In this case, it's well over 100 pages of comics and a 328-page art book from Dynamite's past decade of publishing, including Grant Morrison and Mark Millar's Vampirella stories, Gail Simone's relaunch of Red Sonja and a collection of Alex Ross's art for the publisher for around $15, with the proceeds going to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Doctors Without Borders.
Image Comics' Humble Bundle offer, which ended about two weeks ago, was a notable success with tens of thousands of readers naming their price for contemporary comics. Top Shelf Productions is part of the site's newest book offer, which will benefit Doctors Without Borders and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
Buyers can snag three Top Shelf books through the site: March Book One by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell; From Hell by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell and Ed Piskor's Wizzywig.
If you're not familiar with Humble Bundle, here's the deal: Deals.
Specifically, they're deals with proceeds that go to charity. So far, the site has offered comedy albums, downloadable video games, ebooks, and even movies, but it's teaming up with Image Comics for its first-ever digital comics deal over the next two weeks or so, and buyers can choose how much of the money they spend goes to creators and how much goes to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. The books in the offer are the first volumes of Saga, Fatale, East of West, Lazarus, Morning Glories, Revival, and Chew, and two volumes of The Walking Dead.
