Erik Redin (erik_redin) | 149 comments The new Humble Bundle is insane. It's exclusively Image Comics and the ones they've included that I've read are all amazing.

You've got the first trades of Jonathan Hickman's EAST OF WEST, Ed Brubaker's FATALE, Brian Vaughan's SAGA, Greg Rucka's LAZARUS, the morbidly hilarious CHEW, and if you pay $15 bucks or more you get two trades of THE WALKING DEAD (which may be the weakest book of the bunch).

If you've been meaning to try some non-super hero comics, this is some of the best stuff currently being published.

Hopefully I'm not over-selling it, but Chew is so great. Similar sarcastic humor as Mark in The Martian.

I also really enjoy The Manhattan Projects but it was wandering a bit the last time I was reading it.

Tamahome | 6259 comments Image has a lot of good comics. You can buy digital copies drm-free from the website too, btw. And their print trades cost half as much as Marvel.

Stephanie Griffin | 49 comments This would be great if I didn't already own four of the five titles! I can highly recommend Lazarus, Saga, and Fatale!

Last time I was looking it was barely any of their titles. Have they expanded the DRM-free store to include everything?

Will R Damn. This is a really good bundle - Chew is mentioned every time I ask someone to recommend comics, and I've read Saga, Lazarus and TWD myself. Grab it.

Allan (allana) | 2 comments With Tim Seeley penning the upcoming Grayson, I was happy to see his earlier work, Revival, in this bundle. Saga is great, I think I'm falling for that one. Morning Glories was something I would not otherwise checked out, found it a pleasant surprise.
