As we’ve mentioned before, Dynamite is the king of “bundling” — partnering with sites like Humble Bundle, Bit Torrent and Groupees to offer very afforable digital bundles of comics. They have a bundle called “Pure Dynamte” running right now with Groupees which includes over 85 digital comics which can be purchased at a pay what you want price. They’ve just added Brickleberry, Miss Fury, The Dresden Files: Wild Card, and The Precinct. Higher purchase levels also unlock actual physical things, including statues.
As with other bundles, a portino of the proceeds will go to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
