Humble Bundle Offers Image Comics Collection - Update

| 7 May 2014 22:00

Update: Humble Bundle and Image Comics has added three additional volumes to the DRM-free collection. The Humble Image Comics Bundle now includes the first volumes of the dark alternate history The Manhattan Projects and conflicted teen superhero Invincible, as well as volume two of the Hugo-award-winning Saga.

Original Story:

Pay-what-you-want for digital volumes of nine titles from Image Comics, including Saga, The Walking Dead, Lazarus, and East of West.

The Humble Bundle is adding digital comics to its DRM-free shelf. Announced today, the Humble Image Comics Bundle offers nine Image Comics titles. Pay anything to get the first volumes of East of West, Lazarus, Morning Glories, and Fatale. Pay over the average to get the first volumes of Revival, Chew, and the Hugo-award-winning Saga. Toss in more than $15, and you get two volumes of The Walking Dead. You'll receive the first volume, which launched the book's popularity, and the latest volume, volume twenty. The comic books are DRM-free, and come in several formats, including CBR, CBZ, PDF, and ePub. The Humble Image Comics Bundle ends Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at 11 am PST.

Each digital comics volume collects several individual issues of each title. The Eisner-nominated East of West explores a world where the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse have come. Lazarus, nominated for the 2014 Eisner Award for Best New Series, explores a dystopian future where powerful corporate families defend themselves with a powerful Lazarus. Morning Glories finds students at a prep school trapped with something sinister, and Fatale mixes American crime noir with Lovecraftian horror. Revival is a murder mystery in the midst of the dead suddenly returning to life in rural Wisconsin, while Chew follows a detective with the ability to gain psychic impressions from whatever he eats. Zombie apocalypse series The Walking Dead is the inspiration for the television and adventure game series of the same name.

Like all Humble Bundles, sales from this bundle are split between the creators, charity, and the Humble tip. The charity proceeds for the Humble Image Comics Bundle go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit that works to protect comics from censorship. Image Comics also sells all of its digital comics DRM-free through its online storefront.
