Image Comics is celebrating their 25th anniversary but it looks as if readers will be getting all the presents. The latest Humble Bundle has been announced and you can score $428 worth of the best Image digital comics (and a limited signed letterpress print) for a donation of $25 or more. Plus, if you aren’t a regular reader this is a wonderful way to be introduced to some of the best comics out there today including Chew, Saga, Rat Queens, Outcast, and I Hate Fairyland just to name a few. I love these special bundles and I’m sure you do too!
As with all Humble Bundles there are lower tiers for you to choose from and, while you can get your hands of plenty of number ones for a single solitary dollar, I find the goodies really start to flow at the $10 level as you begin to unlock some great TPBs! Not only can you enjoy great comic reading but, don’t forget, a portion of the proceeds will benefit a worthy charity. This time out your donations will go a long way in helping the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
Here’s the scoop from Image and Humble Bundle:
In honor of its 25th anniversary year, Image Comics is partnering with Humble Bundle for the Humble Comics Bundle: IMAGE at 25. The Humble Comics Bundle: IMAGE at 25 will run from January 18th – February 1st at 11 a.m. Pacific.
Featuring everything from the first issues of Image Comics’ hottest new series to volume ones of the classic, bestselling collected editions, the IMAGE at 25 is the perfect round-up of all the top tier creator-owned titles that fans can’t stop talking about.
“We’re so thrilled at the chance to celebrate 25 years of the best creator-owned comics on the market,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “This Humble Bundle is the perfect opportunity to both help support a good cause and allow fans a sampling of some of the best storytelling out there.”
The shining star of the bundle is a gorgeous signed Isola, Island of the Dead Letterpress Print! ISOLA is a brand-new epic fantasy from Brenden Fletcher (Motor Crush, Batgirl) and Karl Kerschl (Gotham Academy). The story follows two women on a quest to enter the underworld, seeking to undo a curse that turned one of them into a tiger. Every Humble-exclusive two-color letterpress print from this bundle will be signed by both Fletcher and Kerschl.
Together, the comics in this bundle usually cost over $428. At Humble Bundle, though, customers choose their price!
