As with all Humble Bundles, customers can choose how their purchase dollars are allocated, between the publisher and charity. Humble Comics Bundle: Peanuts supports two worthy causes:

  • Comic Book Legal Defense Fund
  • Freedom of the Press Foundation

CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein says, “Peanuts is at the very peak of the comics mountain, and this bundle gives readers an amazing selection from its distinguished history. This bundle is a perfect digital stocking stuffer AND a great gift to have for yourself. Best of all, buyers of this bundle help protect free expression in comics!”

“From the moment Good Ol’ Charlie Brown made his appearance in newspapers across the nation,” said Filip Sablik, BOOM! Studios’ President of Publishing and Marketing. “The Peanuts gang has touched the lives of generations and continues to delight and inspire to this day. We are thrilled to share the legacy of Sparky with new readers thanks to Humble Bundle.”

Peanuts is the Beatles of comics,” said Eric Reynolds, Associate Publisher of Fantgraphics. “Singular in its place in comics history, it is the thing that is so undeniably great that everyone from snobs to children to hipsters to anti-hipsters love it. This bundle will allows readers of all ages to immerse themselves in a diverse selection of timeless work that will remind them of the towering talent and legacy of Charles M. Schulz.”

The Humble Comics Bundle: Peanuts ends Wednesday, November 18, 2015, at 11 a.m. Pacific time.

About Fantagraphics
Fantagraphics Books has been a leading proponent of comics as a legitimate form of art and literature since it began publishing the critical trade magazine The Comics Journal in 1976. By the early 1980s, Fantagraphics found itself at the forefront of the burgeoning movement to establish comics as a medium as eloquent and expressive as the more established popular arts of film, literature, poetry, et al. Fantagraphics quickly established a reputation as an advocacy publisher that specialized in seeking out and publishing the kind of innovative work that traditional comics corporations who dealt almost exclusively in super-heroes and fantasy either didn’t know existed or wouldn’t touch: serious, dramatic, historical, journalistic, political, and satirical work by a new generation of alternative cartoonists as well as many artists who gained prominence as part of the seminal underground comix movement of the ’60s. Fantagraphics has since gained an international reputation for its literate and audacious editorial standards and its exacting production values.
