Humble Bundle has joined forces with Image Comics to offer a week-long collection of popular independent comics through its “bundles” program. Fans can name their own price for indie titles like Saga, Bitch Planet, and more.
Humble Bundle has found success by partnering with geeky media companies, game developers, and publishers to offer bundled content to nerds of all stripes. The website also allows anyone to donate part or all of the proceeds to different charities. This week’s charity is the Human Rights Campaign. In a statement, Image said that it wanted to raise awareness for the campaign while spotlighting queer content.
Image Comics is pleased to announce an all-new Humble Bundle digital sale…set to bring awareness to equality and to support the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. This Humble Bundle highlights some of the series from Image Comics that are created by or significantly feature LGBT characters.
Fans of indie comics can pick up a number of popular titles from some of the biggest names in the industry, including Matt Fraction, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Rick Remender, Brian K. Vaughn, Scott Snyder, and Warren Ellis.
The comics bundle currently includes 18 indie comics that you can unlock by deciding how much you want to pay at each level. Items available at the lower levels include grabs like Alex De Campi‘s No Mercy, Snyder’s popular horror series Wytches, and Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s other punk rock comic, Phonogram.
Image has also included a “New Arcs” collection, featuring first issues of popular new series like Paper Girls by Vaughan and Cliff Chiang, Monstress by Young Adult author Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda, and Mark Millar and Rafael Albuquerque’s much-buzzed about Huck.
Higher-tier titles include DeConnick’s ever-popular Bitch Planet, available to fans who offer to pay at least $20 per bundle.
The sale runs through Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016 at 11am PT, with more comics appearing throughout next week.
