Press Release

Today, Heavy Metal Entertainment has revealed they’re teaming up with Humble Bundle for a new bundle with over $341 worth of comics and it launches today. Set for purchase between April 29 through May 20, fans can pick up the Humble Comic Bundle: HEAVY METAL’s Heaviest Metal features works by comics creators like Dan Fogler (Brooklyn Gladiator, Fishkill, Moon Lake), Stephanie Phillips (Taarna: The Last Taarakian), George C. Romero (The Rise, Cold Dead War), and Dylan Sprouse (Sun Eater), and artists like Simon Bisley, Ben Templesmith, and Diego Yapur.

A portion of the proceeds from the bundle will go to The Hero Initiative. The Hero Initiative creates a financial safety net for comic creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work.

Humble Bundle’s have been hugely successful in generating funds to help charities. Last summer Image Comics announced their Humble Bundles generated over $140K in proceeds to benefit Book Industry Charitable (Binc) Foundation.

“The partnership between Heavy Metal and Humble Bundle offers a rare opportunity to not only sample stunning work our creators and editors have done for the magazine, our many comics, and prose books, but also a chance to support the noble mission of The Hero Initiative, a charity we at Heavy Metal truly admire,” said Kris Longo, Heavy Metal’s Chief Sales Officer in a press release sent to AIPT. “We’re excited to give new fans and old the opportunity to not only enjoy Heavy Metal’s collection but also help creators in need in equal measure.”

Heavy Metal have pointed out a few highlights in the bundle, including:

  • Heavy Metal Magazine #276, which features Jack Kirby artwork
  • Heavy Metal Magazine #280, showcasing Grant Morrison’s debut as editor-in-chief
  • Two special music issues with stories inspired by bands like Iron Maiden, Nine Inch Nails, and Slipknot
  • The landmark 300th issue featuring VIP guests Moebius (with a short story in English for the first time), Richard Corben, Tanino Liberatore, and brand-new talent
