Two long-time CBLDF supporters, Last Gasp Publishing and Humble Bundle, have partnered for the ultimate digital collection of underground comix artists and anthologies — the Humble Underground Book Bundle!

Name your price for Revolutionary Letters, A Cynic’s Guide to a Rich and Full Life, Pop Surrealism: The Rise of Underground Art, The Original Art of Basil Wolverton, and Mitch O’Connell: The World’s Best Artist.

If you pay $15 or more, you’ll receive all of the above plus Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society and Hi-Fructose Collected Edition Vol. 1-3.
