UPDATE: my intense schedule over the last month and lack of sleep helped me misread the time stamp on this… you actuall have nearly a WEEK TO GO! So it’s all good. AND a new comic is added every day!
The latest comics themed Humble Bundle is Valiant Comics themed and it has a
few hours to go so if you want to jump in, now’s the time. SIX DAYS to go. The bundle includes some 120 comics and charity proceeds on the pay-what-you-want model go to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the Hero Initiative, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF). For a mere $15 you can get entirely caught up on Valiant’s excellent offerings here is the chance.
Humble BUndle doesn’t archives its campaigns, so as we sometimes do, we’ll note it for the record. Like other bundles, the Valiant effort has broken six figures, with $115,238.76 in total payments and 11,430 purchases.
I think I mention it every time I do this, but when Humble Bundle, best known for offering video games, got more involved in comics, it seemed like a great chance to raise money and do some outreach…and I’d say that’s been borne out. Thus far Image, IDW, Dynamite and Boom! have all run very successful campaigns. And another one may be launching later today so check back.
