Humble Bundle and the Children's Book Council will combine forces for Children's Book Week this year, which will take place this week, from May 4th-10th. This combination of powers will result in The Humble Kids Comics Bundle Supporting Children's Book Week packed with popular titles from a variety of award-winning publishers. Noteworthy contributors include Abrams, Image Comics, Dark Horse, IDW, BOOM!, Top Shelf, Papercutz, No Starch Press, Little Pickle Press, and more.
Humble Bundle Director of Books, Kelley L. Allen, shared her thoughts on the event by saying:
With the summer just around the corner, Humble is pleased to be releasing the first in a series of bundles devoted towards kids. The genesis of this bundle started a few months ago when I was asked to attend a meeting with a small group of top notch publishers. Their goal: Bringing to the public eye the genre of children's graphic novels and comics. This bundle represents a wonderful collaboration working with both the publishers and the Children's Book Council and Every Child a Reader organization. We hope that both kids (and their parents) enjoy our collective handiwork!
As with all Humble Bundles, customers can choose how their purchase dollars are allocated, between the publisher and charity. The Humble Kids Comics Bundle Supporting Children's Book Week supports Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF). You can view some of the titles that will be available below.
Customers can name their price for 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, and The Incredible Plate Tectonics Comic: The Adventure of Geo.
Those who pay more than the average price will also receive 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; and The Only Living Boy #1.
Customers who pay $15 or more will receive all of the above plus The Misadventures of Salem Hyde, Book One: Spelling Trouble; The Lunch Witch; and Lumberjanes Vol. 1.
