Last week, Dynamite Entertainment partnered with Humble Bundle for one of the most jam-packed collections of comics and prose yet! This week, that jam-packed bundle gets even more crowded with the addition of more amazing books!

This bundle features some of the biggest authors in Dynamite’s catalog, giving readers nearly $300 in content for a fraction of the cover price for fans to pay what YOU want for each bundle, and introduce yourself to Dynamite’s library of literary titles!

“It’s always a lot of fun to work with our good friends over at Dynamite,” says Kelley Allen, Director of Books at Humble Bundle. “This promotion is chock-filled with mega star authors, artists and creators to the hilt!”

“Dynamite has been incredibly fortunate to work with some of the greatest names in fiction,” says Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “This year marks the fifth anniversary of New York Times Best-seller Charlaine Harris’ first-ever graphic novel adaptation of her series, Grave Sight, as well as the anniversary of Dean Koontz’s incredibly suspenseful graphic novel adaptation of Fear Nothing. We wanted to mark the occasion by gathering together the work of numerous phenomenal writers into one great bundle, titles like Shaft: A Complicated Man (the 2015 Glyph Award winner by writer David Walker) and Legends of Red Sonja (a celebration of so many sensational authors, spearheaded by the talented Gail Simone). This will give fiction fans a low cost way to check out Dynamite’s wide catalog of literary all-stars, and all in support of three great causes. This bundle is packed with something for fans of comics and prose! And with this bundle, we are also supporting three GREAT charitable organizations that we feel help those in need — the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and Doctors Without Borders.”

The “pay what you want” model offers readers the chance to unlock over 120 comics and more than 3,500 pages of content. This will give graphic lit fans access to:

  • Charlaine Harris’ Grave Sight Part 1 by Charlaine Harris
  • The Shadow Vol 1: Fire of Creation by Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell
  • Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thomson: Hopcross Jilly by Patricia Briggs
  • The Complete Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, Leah Moore, and John Reppion
  • Sherlock Holmes: Year One by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Scott Beatty
  • The Spider Vol. 1: Terror of the Zombie Queen by David Liss and Francesco Francavilla
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Echoes by Tom Clancy

As the bundle progresses, there will be a running average.  For those who pay more than the average price will also unlock these additional titles:

  • Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Ghoul Goblin by Jim Butcher
  • Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time #1-6, 1.5 by Robert Jordan

All who purchase at this tier or higher will be granted access to these special additions, regardless of when they buy in!
