I really enjoyed its first 10 issues. I was a fan of the Jordan era Shadowman. It definitely wasn't perfect, but it was really fun.

VERY COOL deal from Valiant on this one guys... 150 Valiant books for $15 (or more, pay what you want).

That's 10cents a book --- comic prices from the 1930s. :)

PDF or CBZ formats... too good to pass up.

10,000 SOLD! :o

Pardon my ignorance...

If you purchased / donated. Does this mean you have access to downloading these digital copies as long as you go to humble bundle. Or you only have access to these books for a certain amount of time then it expires.

DRM-free means they are yours forever on any and as many devices you want.

The Humble Bundle site also hosts the files for you indefinitely. If you do more bundles, everything you have from them is there as a one stop shop. At a friends house and want to show them the cool VEI books? Just open up there web browser and download the books and read it with them.

I bought the Transformers Bundle a while ago and I still have access to downloading the books. Same thing with games I bought several years ago.

There's a tiny extra step where you have to go to your download page on the site and click "Claim this Bunndle" after you purchase, but yeah, then all of them are available to you on the site to download at any time.

And as the second week of this starts, over 11,300 bundles have been purchased :o

Sounds like the Valiant fan base might be expanding

I have been badgering my brother non-stop to buy this bundle. I mentioned it to a co-worker, and even a couple of my students. No one has bit yet, but hopefully soon. I am a poor salesman.

You can "gift" it... but that would be your money. :D

You know I was listening to a story about the Ebola outbreak in Africa right now, and it is really bad with the potential to get a lot worse. Doctors without boarders is already there on the ground to important work, and of course that is one of the charities in the humble bundle, so if you can give, please do so the need is desperate.

Can anybody clarify if the Valiant Masters X-O collection is coming to print ever? Or was it like they said digital only (maybe forever). Which I guess means the Master's line is dead in print but not digitally. (if I'm understanding it correctly)

Should be past 13,500 by end of day.

I'm reading the collections to do my Amazon reviews. On Volume 2 of Shadowman (so issue #5), they're still using the recap page from issue #4, rather than recapping the first arc.
If you're not a *SQUEE*, you're okay with me.
