Celebrating the Unpopular Arts

Last Call for the 2000AD Humble Bundle! And a Quick Kickstarter Find

Hey folks, Travis here with a last minute (it ends at 2PM Eastern!) mention of the 2000AD Humble Bundle.  You may have heard of Humble Bundle, which donates to charity and pairs with gaming and comics publishers to offer really good deals on products to get your money.  2000AD of course publishes Judge Dredd and other cool comics, like Grant Morrison’s early work Zenith, which you can get here for donating.  Here’s the link to go straight to Humble Bundle.  I recommend that you take a look at what your purchase price/donation gets you, though.  I’m going to include the original PR email about this I got below so you can see what is included in total, but be aware that the amounts are wrong — you have to donate at the upper end to get the Zenith books, for example, not for just a buck.  However, if you donate the maximum minimum (ahem), you’re spending $25 to get 54 comics that normally cost over $700.  Also, check your amounts to charity with the “Adjust Donation” button under the checkout button — at $30, the default only gives $1.50 to the two charities involved.  I adjusted mine so that I gave the minimum allowed to Humble Bundle ($9) and about $5 to Rebellion/2000AD, so that each charity got about $8 from me.

2000AD Humble Bundle

Here’s the original press release, and again note that the specific tiers of what you get aren’t right:

Humble Bundle and 2000 AD have joined forces once again to bring you the very best in comic book storytelling for amazing prices – and the chance to raise money for charity!

The law is here, courtesy of 2000 AD, in the newest Humble Bundle – absolutely packed with everything Judge Dredd and related stories and settings, plus some all-time 2000 AD classics!

That’s not sinister at all!

Travis here again.  There’s also an interesting looking Kickstarter that I came across (or that Kickstarter recommended for me), and you can see a page above.  It’s called Promenad, and it’s created by Jennie Gyllblad, and it’s inspired by weird things she’s seen while walking her dog in the woods.  Sounds spooky!  I dig the art style, and her previous comic Signatur is also available.  I’m going for the PDFs myself, only because I don’t have a Scrooge McDuck money pit, and international shipping makes the individual comics a bit pricey, but the PDFs of both books are only about $9 US for the 2 comics!  I spend more than that on junk food!  There’s less than a day left, so hop on this one fast!

Anyway, I’m hoping to post more soon.  I’ll see you guys before long, and if nothing else, I’ll be co-writing Flippin’!
