Humble bundle is one of the best things to happen to comics. It gives publishers a platform to reach broader audiences while doing something good for various charities. You pay what you want and in return you’ll receive a UNICEF aid package size drop of comics, some you’ve probably read, others you may have missed. There’s no doubt about how much of a value Humble Bundles can be. Even if charity isn’t your thing. Today, Aspen Comics is joining the cause and bringing a bundle ranking right up there with other top publishers such as Dark Horse and Image Comics.
Available now on the Humble Bundle website is the Aspen Comics bundle. Paying what you want will net you digital copies of: The Four Points: Volume 1, The Art of Aspen: Volume 1, Shrugged: Volume 1, Michael Turner’s Eternal Soulfire: Volume 1,Michael Turner’s Soulfire: Volume 1, Michael Turner’s Fathom Blue: Volume 1, Michael Turner’s Fathom Kiani: Volume 1, Michael Turner’s Fathom: Volume 1, Executive Assistant Iris: Volume 1, and Charismagic: Volume 1.
Anyone paying more than the average will get the added: The ZooHunters #1-3, Legend of the Shadow Clan: Volume 1, Michael Turner’s Soulfire: Omnibus Edition 1, Michael Turner’s Fathom: Omnibus Edition 1, Lola XOXO: Wasteland Madam: Volume 1, Lola XOXO: Volume 1, Jirni: Volume 1, Jirni: Volume 2, Executive Assistant Iris: Omnibus 1, Damsels In Excess: Volume 1, and Charismagic: Omnibus Edition 1.
Pay $15 or more for all of that plus Michael Turner Sketchbook: Digital Remastered Edition, Michael Turner’s Fathom: Swimsuit Edition, Michael Turner’s Fathom: Killian’s Tide, Homecoming: Volume 1, Ekos: Volume 1 Preview, and Aspen Extended Edition.
The Michael Turner sketchbook alone is worth forking over the cost of two In-n-Out meals. Perhaps the most exciting thing about the bundle is once again seeing Michael Turner and Geoff Johns EKOS preview pages. The book was put on hold and never got to fully exist before Turner’s passing, but how great it could have been can definitely be seen in those pages.
In total the comics compiling the bundle are valued at $585. Not only do you chose what you’ll pay but you’ll also choose how much of the money goes to the Hero Initiative. A worthwhile organization dedicated to taking care of comic book creators who’ve fallen on hard times. You also have the option of adding a second charity to receive a portion of your contribution.
The Aspen Comics Humble Bundle is available from now till April 6. Check out the full details and name your price at the Humble Bundle site.
