“The Dynamite StoryBundle is the perfect cure for the summertime blues,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “Each year, the San Diego Comic-Con is such a pop culture zeitgeist that anyone with their finger on the pulse, whether they be hardcore comic book fans or curious onlookers from more mainstream walks of life, can feel a bit neglected. SDCC provides an overdose of entertainment to those in attendance. For the rest of us — those that can’t make it to southern California for the event — I think we’d appreciate having an opportunity to immerse ourselves in entertainment, too. The multitude of omnibus editions in our new StoryBundle can give anyone a tremendous amount of summer reading, with exciting comics spanning the genres of superhero fiction, horror, fantasy, science fiction, Western, and more.”
StoryBundle founder Jason Chen says, “We love working with Dynamite to bring our readers tremendous value in our comic bundles. This latest Comic-Con Omnibus Bundle packs even more issues and pages into a convenient (and money-saving) package where YOU set the price. With 15 different omnibuses, each with hundreds and hundreds of pages of content inside, we’re sure this is the best way to either start or grow your digital comics collection. All in time for Comic-Con!”
Part of the proceeds from the Dynamite StoryBundle promotion will contribute to two charitable organizations, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Girls Write Now. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of the First Amendment rights of the comics art form and its community of retailers, creators, publishers, librarians, and readers. Girls Write Now is the first organization in the country with a writing and mentoring model exclusively for girls, dedicated to providing the guidance, support, and opportunities for underserved high school girls to develop their creative, independent voices, and write their way to a better future.
Fans and curious newcomers are encouraged to visit StoryBundle.com beginning Tuesday, June 16th to take advantage of the omnibus bundle hosted by StoryBundle.
