Humble Bundle Teams up with Image Comics to Offer All-Graphic Novel Bundle

Humblehumble bundle Bundle is one of the first websites to make the pay-what you-want concept work with bundled content, and today they are announcing a deal with a comic book publisher for a graphic novel bundle.

The Humble Image Comics Bundle launches later today, and for the next two weeks readers will have the option of setting their own price for a bundle of Image Comics graphic novel titles.

The bundle includes Fatale Vol 1. by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, Morning Glories vol. 1 by Nick Spenser and Joe Eisma, East of West Vol. 1 by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta, and Lazarus Vol 1. by Greg Rucka, Michael Lark and Santiago Arcas.

Anyone who pays above the average payment will also pick up 3 bonus titles, and the big spenders who pay $15 or more will also get Vol. 1 and Vol. 20 from The Walking Dead. The 3 bonus titles are Revival Vol. 1 by Tim Seeley and Mike Norton, Chew Vol. 1 by John Layman and Rob Guillory, and Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples blockbuster bestseller, Saga Vol. 1.

Humble Bundle and Image Comics will also be adding additional bonus titles half way through the promotion; anyone who spends above the average will also receive The Manhattan Projects Vol. 1 by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra, Saga Vol. 2, and Invincible Vol. 1 by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker’s.

As with past bundles, customers will be able to choose how to divide the money between Image Comics, Humble Bundle, and one of several charities. This time around Humble Bundle has added a new charity, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

In related news, Humble Bundle also announced plans today to launch a Book tab on the HB website. They expect to have the new page up by 13 May, and it will be dedicated to ebook and audiobook promotions. Humble Bundle plans to offer two audiobook or ebook bundles each month. Over the past couple years Humble Bundle offered several ebook and a couple audiobook bundles, but those bundles were all one-off events.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. I’m curious where you got the list of books they’ll be adding at the mid-point from. I don’t see them listed on the website.
