HUMBLE BUNDLE launches pay-what-you-want IMAGE COMICS bundle

HUMBLE BUNDLE launches pay-what-you-want IMAGE COMICS bundle

Posted on April 29, 2014 by Kat Salazar

Humble Bundle has teamed up with mega-publisher Image Comics to launch the Humble Image Comics Bundle today, offering up digital editions of nine New York Times bestselling, Eisner award-winning comic books starting at as little as one cent. Customers can pay what they want and choose where their money goes. The promotion runs for two weeks on https://www.humblebundle.com

Customers can name their price for Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta's EAST OF WEST, VOL. 1, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark's LAZARUS, VOL. 1, Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma's MORNING GLORIES, VOL. 1, and Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' FATALE, VOL. 1. Those who pay more than the average price will also receive Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' SAGA, VOL. 1, Tim Seeley and Mike Norton's REVIVAL, VOL. 1, and John Layman and Rob Guillory's CHEW, VOL. 1. Paying $15 or more will unlock Robert Kirkman's THE WALKING DEAD, VOL. 1 and VOL. 20, completing the bundle of nine comic books.
 
EAST OF WEST is a New York Times bestseller and was nominated in the "Best Continuing Series" category for the 2014 Eisner Awards. LAZARUS was nominated in the "Best New Series" category in the 2014 Eisner Awards. SAGA is a New York Times bestseller, and has multiple Eisner Awards, a Hugo Award, and nominations in the 2014 Hugo awards and in multiple categories for the 2014 Eisner Awards. CHEW is a New York Times bestseller and Eisner Award winner. THE WALKING DEAD is a New York Times bestseller, multiple Eisner Award winner, and the series for which the hit AMC television show of the same name is based upon. 
 
Customers can choose how their payment is allocated: between the comic book creators and/or the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of the First Amendment rights of the comics art form and its community. Since Humble Bundle's launch in 2010, $37 million has been raised for more than 20 different charities and non-profit organizations.
 
The Humble Image Comics Bundle ends on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. PDT.

Well done for teaming up with Humble Bundle for this promotion, they do a great job promoting independent media and it’s great to see comics taking the stage.

I hope to see more of this in future!

This is great news! I picked this up already.

Is there any way to have these purchases show up in my Image Comics account? I think this would be a great incentive to spur more purchases from Image, help further the reach of Humble Bundle, and help out the CBLDF.

Not interested as there’s no way to buy every TWD issue drm free. :///

Great bundle!
Saga Vol. 2, Invincible Vol. 1 and The Manhattan Projects Vol. 1 were added yesterday. The Humble Bundle website states the offer runs until May 13.
It’d be great if there was a way to sync to the imagecomics.com account.
Will digital versions of volumes like these be offered on this site? Is Is there a reason for only offering single issues here?
