Are you interested in checking out some cool comics while helping comic creators in need? Well, Humanoids is partnering with Groupees to offer fans a limited-time digital comics bundle featuring the company’s iconic and groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy graphic novels. The current offer will help raise money for The Hero Initiative.

According to the press release, the bundle in question will be available for 15 days (beginning May 5, 2020). It offers three tiers of titles, including The Incal by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Mœbius, Metabarons by writer Jodorowsky and Juan Gimenez, Barbarella by Jean-Claude Forest, adapted by bestselling writer KellySue DeConnick, and I Am Legion by Fabien Nury and John Cassaday.

Humanoids is known around the world for publishing transgressive graphic novels,” shared recently appointed Publisher Mark Waid. “The Humanoids Groupees’ bundle allows fans to discover the company’s seminal graphic novels, the recent H1 releases, and acclaimed books from the Life Drawn imprint like Koren Shadmi’s stunning biography of Rod Serling and Tommi Redolfi’s surreal portrait of Marilyn Monroe. It’s an incredibly diverse and far ranging line-up of titles, but they all share a provocative sensibility.”

Martinez, and Geoff Johns.
