"... and lots more." I can't see where the 'lots more' is spelled out specifically. Am I missing it?

3 books mentioned in the blurb at the top. It's the other 17 18 books and the 25% off coupon to the Valiant store that the "and lots more" refers to. :wink:

Thanks. I didn't realize that meant all of the other Valiant books they've offered to date. Quite a deal.

Last time Valiant was on Humble Bundle they gave you access to download the books in CBZ, EPUB, or PDF versions. I still have access to all those downloads in my Humble Bundle account.

I dunno about now, but it was the same for me a few years back. I downloaded my pdf copies.

I'm participated in each of the Humble Bundles and the Groupee that they did. It's a lot less hassle, if I want to re-read old books (or catch up on stuff I've fallen behind on) to download the files and read them on my tablet than to have to pull out the physical books. (Reduces chance of damage, too!) Since they're DRM-free, occasional I'll share some books with people I think might be interested in Valiant but haven't read any, or simply aren't aware of it.

VALIANT HUMBLE BUNDLE NOW AVAILABLE

This is the 3rd time Valiant has teamed up with the Humble Bundle people to give fans a wonderful opportunity to digitally read some of the finest books in the Valiant universe at a fantastic price. PLUS, it also helps out a wonderful charity. The link for this is: https://www.humblebundle.com/books/vali ... erse-books

Just FYI, the last time these two teamed up they managed sale of 5,751 bundles. Today, with 11 days to go, there have been 2,221 participants. I know that this is a favorite offer with VEI, so let's see if we can't exceed the last time this came around. I'll post the updated count each day to this post so all of us can see how we're doing in helping out VEI with this. They're hoping that they can get a great contribution to the charity with this.

Thanks in advance for looking, considering, and hopefully helping out. It is truly appreciated by all.

NOTICE! VEI has just said that they will provide a mystery prize for the largest donation for this promo. Will track those on this site and Valiant Fans Facebook page, if you jot down how much your contribution was, and will let VEI know. Let's make this a contest to remember. Just put a post here with the amount of your donation so we can keep track. Will update members each day now on how many days left, how many bundles sold, AND NOW, on largest contribution to date! Have to love VEI and their fans! :banana: :banana: :banana: :superstar: :headbang:

I never got the signed X-O variant from the last promotion. By the time I inquired it was apparently too late. :!:

8 days to go in this promo and the count now stands at 2,829 bundles sold. Given this rate, the 3,000 sold mark should be easily surpassed today, on the way to beating the 5,751 record. This is a great and economical way to catch up on something you might have missed while helping a great cause. Let's all do our part to help VEI on this one! :applause:

3,295 bundles sold with just 6 days to go. Be sure to let all your fellow Valiant supporters know about this great deal before it's gone. It's a wonderful way to binge read, catch up on something you might have missed, all while helping VEI and a worthy charity!

I just threw a link to the Humble Bundle Valiant onto CGC Board in a topic where someone was asking about "hidden gems" (meaning books that are great but hardly anyone know it). :thumb:

5 Days to go for this offer, and the count sits at 3,554 bundles sold. That demonstrates that Valiant fans are the BEST, as they continue to support both VEI and this wonderful charity. Thanks to everyone who has helped to date, and let's all urge our friends to help push this past the goal of 5,751 to set yet another record for Valiant! :high-five:

3,748 Bundles have now been sold with 4 more days to go. This should generate a nice donation to the charity and also shows that a lot of people are getting a great set of reading materials to enjoy. But, we have a way to go to beat the 5,751 record from the last Valiant Humble Bundle, so please talk this up with your fellow comic book lovers and let them know about this great opportunity to experience the Valiant Universe for themselves! As always, thank you so much for your help and support with this! :thumb:

Three days left for this offer and so far 3,924 bundles have been sold. Less than 1,900 to go to break the previous Valiant/Humble Bundle record! I have every confidence that the supportive Valiant fans here will focus to make this happen for VEI. Thanks to everyone for your efforts to date on this, and for the final push during the last 3 days. When VEI sees the results, it can only encourage them to do such events more often for us. :clap:

Ok, I'm interested in catching up reading Valiant and this seems like a good way to do it. I've looked at the Humble Bundle site and I'm just not sure what I get for my money. I've never used the service before and don't find the descriptions to be very clear. Is it the entire current catalog for at least a $25 donation?

For a donation of at least $15.00, you get all of the volumes shown in the Humble Bundle Valiant set. It is over $450. face value of books if you could even find them for face value. It is a HUGE binge read event which is well worth the donation. Glad to hear you'll be taking advantage of this. You will NOT be sorry. There's soooo much good reading here :thumb:
