To help celebrate Banned Books Week, which kicks off on Sunday, Huumble Bundle is offering several “forbidden” books and comics — i.e. material that has been banned or censored in one form or another at various times.
If you aren’t familiar with the service, Humble Bundle works like this: for two weeks, they’ll offer a selection of digital books and comics and allow you to pay what you want — as little as a penny. In this case, that first tier gets you a selection of Liberty Annuals from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, Boy’s Club by Matt Furie, SHE: The Big Bitch Anthology by Spain Rodriguez and Barefoot Gen Vol 1: A Cartoon Story of Hiroshima by Keiji Nakazawa, among others. However, if you pay $8 or more, you also get tier two, which includes the first Saga trade paperback, Angry Youth Comix by Johnny Ryan, Megahex by Simon Hanselmann and more. $15 or more opens up tier three, which includes material from Robert Crumb, Mark Bode, Jaime Hernandez and more.
Like everything sold as part of a Humble Bundle, these are DRM-free digital files, available in several formats. It’s more than $300 worth of books, and you can choose how much of the purchase price goes to the publishers, how much to Humble Bundle and how much to charity — in this case, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
