Humble Bundle Launches Kids’ Comics Bundle for Children’s Book Week
The latest Humble Bundle is a very appropriate one: Just in time for Children’s Book Week, they have launched the Humble Kids Comics Bundle Supporting Children’s Book Week, which includes some great comics from a variety of different publishers.
If you’re new to Humble Bundle, it’s a way to buy digital books, games, and comics at a great price. All the books and comics are DRM-free, so you can read them on pretty much any device and move them from one device to another without hassles. The first-tier bundle is pay-what-you-want, so you can pick up a pretty good selection of books for as little as a penny. If you pay more than the current average price, you get the first bundle plus another bundle of books, and $15 unlocks yet another tier. The deal runs for two weeks, and there’s another incentive bundle that is announced during the second week.
Got that? OK, here’s the lineup for the Kids Comics Bundle:
Pay what you want:
- Axe Cop, vol. 1
- Howtoons: [Re] Ignition, vol. 1
- Build Your Own Website: A Comic Guide to HTML, CSS, and WordPress
- Spaghetti is NOT a Finger Food (and Other Life Lessons)
- Betty & Veronica’s Princess Storybook
- Uglydoll: Eat Dat!
- Super Dinosaur, vol. 1
- The Incredible Plate Tectonics Comic: The Adventure of Geo
Pay more than the average ($6.74 as of this writing) to get these additional books:
- Maddy Kettle (Book 1): The Adventure of the Thimblewitch
- Grown-ups, the World, and Me!
- Usagi Yojimbo: Yokai
- The Stink Files, Dossier 001: The Postman Always Brings Mice
- Skylanders, vol. 2: Champions
- The Only Living Boy #1
And $15 will get you all the above books, plus
- The Misadventures of Salem Hyde, Book One: Spelling Trouble
- The Lunch Witch
- Lumberjanes, vol. 1
The complete bundle would be worth $168 if you bought the books at full retail, so even the top price of $15 is a steal.
