Humble Bundle – comics, Street Fighter, Star Trek, Pride


Context

Writeups.org is an affiliate of both Humble Bundle and Amazon. You can read everything about affiliations, adverts, cookies, etc. on this page.

When there’s an offer that’s 100% germane for this site — once a month or so — it gets posted there.


Various bundles

I get maybe one alert out of four when it comes to new bundles. So I mostly learn that something relevant is around by accident. Today was like that, then I checked the page and I realised that there actually multiple bundles that fit well with our readership, all at once.

Sigh.

So, triaging by time left and not being too verbose. As always, the lowest tier for all of these is $1.

1/ Capcom video games Summer bundle  (affiliate link).

Been modernising a lot of Street Fighter writeups lately, so that feels relevant. Also has Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter, Dragon Dogma and other games, every one of those being on my WORG profiles to do list. But this one has very little time left.

2/ Star Trek sourcebooks bundle  (affiliate link).

This one has only two days left as of this writing. Them are chiefly handbooks about a tonne of spaceships, plus general sourcebooks and a few oddities (such as the one about Grudge the cat).

3/ The Boys and Red Sonja comics bundle  (affiliate link).

Not my cuppa but might be yours. Up-to-63-books bundle of Dynamite comics, with The Boys, Red Sonja, Deja Toris, Vampirella, Miss Fury, Swords of Sorrow, etc..

4/ LGBT comics and LGBT comics creators bundle  (affiliate link).

A Pride Month bundle, obvs. Mostly indie stuff, obvs. Lumberjanes might be the biggest name, unless it’s Kevin Keller and other Archie material. There’s also Cosmoknight (if you’re a lesbian WORG reader and want profiles about those, the queue starts all the way over there), two Axelle Lenoir books, Kim Reaper, etc..

5/ Street Fighter Udon comics bundle  (affiliate link).

*This* one I had seen, but did not bother to post. The material is useful for the Street Fighter character profiles, but the comics are an embarrassing, endless deluge of panty shots and balloon-like boobs and camel toes. Definitely not worth a post on its own, but since I’m ending up doing a multi-bundle posts…

As usual :

  • This is an affiliate link. The parties getting a cut are (well in this case it depends on the Bundle, it’s clearly listed on each page) and Writeups.org.
  • You pick a tier, depending upon how much of the bundle you want and how much you want to pay.
  • Everything is downloaded, comes DRM-free, and in multiple formats so you can read it using various software.
  • At the page linked above you have explanations about the books, and previews of the material.


Omnibus sourcebooks

Both Marvel and DC have reissued classic sourcebooks as big, high-value hardback collections. If you like reading character profiles, then these are the main giants whose shoulders we’re standing on.
