It's hard for comic book readers to know when to "jump onto" a comic book series. Should you start with the current #1 issue reboot? The previous one? Do you wait for the next? How can publishers ensure painless entry to the ongoing stories of characters with decades of history? It's for this reason that publishers frequently advertise special comic book issues as "jumping-on points," but Valiant Entertainment is trying a new approach by offering readers the opportunity to read over 150 issues of Valiant comics for just $15 as part of the new Valiant Universe Humble Bundle. Surely if you read all 150, you can feel fairly assured that you've successfully penetrated continuity!
A press release provides the details:
Perfect for new fans and existing fans alike, HUMBLE COMICS BUNDLE: VALIANT UNIVERSE contains over 150 issues worth of content from some of the comic industry's most notable talents, including writer Jeff Lemire (The Terrifics), Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), Joshua Dysart (Unknown Soldier), Jody Houser (Mother Panic) and Eric Heisserer (Arrival), as well as superstar artists Trevor Hairsine (Judge Dredd), Raúl Allén (Hawkeye), Tomás Giorello (Conan), and others – a combined retail value of $476, available now for a flexible price!
