One Day Left to Get Jim Henson Comics at Humble Bundle
We’ve written before about Humble Bundle, which sells “bundles” of DRM-free comics, books, and games with a pay-what-you-want model. Their latest deal, which expires tomorrow, is a Jim Henson Bundle featuring both comics and novels: The classic and newer versions of the Fraggle Rock comics, the Dark Crystal graphic novels and prose novels, the Storyteller anthologies, and one of our picks for the top ten graphic novels of 2014, The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow (check out our preview here).
As with all Humble Bundle promotions, you can get the basic bundle for as little as a penny, but the more you pay, the more you get: The first tier is Fraggle Rock and Dark Crystal books, and if you pay more than the average ($8.47 as of this writing) you unlock the Turkey Hollow and Storyteller books. $10.47 gets you all that plus the award-winning A Tale of Sand. All comics are delivered as DRM-free digital files in a number of formats, including Kindle, Nook, and plain vanilla PDFs. Humble Bundle always donate a cut of the price (you get to choose how much) to a charity; in this case, the sale supports the Center for Puppetry Arts. This is a great deal, but don’t delay: The sale expires tomorrow morning.
