Heavy Metal Magazine launches a Humble Bundle campaign in order to support the Hero Initiative, which helps financially support comic creators.
Heavy Metal is the latest comic publisher to launch a Humble Bundle campaign, this time in support of the Hero Initiative.
The science-fiction/fantasy magazine is launching the Humble Comic Bundle: HEAVY METAL’s Heaviest Metal, which features $341 worth of stories. Among the stories in the bundle are tales by legendary director George C. Romero and actor/writer Dylan Sprouse, as well as artwork by Ben Templesmith. The bundle also contains Heavy Metal Magazine #276, which features artwork by comics legend Jack Kirby; Heavy Metal Magazine #280, which featured the debut of All-Star Superman writer Grant Morrison as editor-in-chief; and the landmark 300th issue which features artwork from the late Richard Corben.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Hero Initiative, which helps financially support comic book creators, including medical aid. Previous publishers who have launched Humble Bundle campaigns include BOOM! Studios and IDW Publishing, with the latter putting the spotlight on its Dungeons & Dragons line of comics.
“The partnership between Heavy Metal and Humble Bundle offers a rare opportunity to not only sample stunning work our creators and editors have done for the magazine, our many comics and prose books but also a chance to support the noble mission of The Hero Initiative, a charity we at Heavy Metal truly admire,” said Kris Longo, Heavy Metal’s Chief Sales Officer. “We’re excited to give new fans and old the opportunity to not only enjoy Heavy Metal’s collection but also help creators in need in equal measure.”
President/Co-founder of The Hero Initiative Jim McLauchlin added, “We appreciate the ongoing efforts of Humble Bundle to better the lives of comic creators, and we’re delighted to work with Heavy Metal to bring this bundle to fans everywhere.”
Heavy Metal recently announced a deal with Range Media Partners in which it will co-produce films and TV shows drawn from the magazine’s stories and concepts. Other projects in the pipeline include a television adaptation of Blake Northcott’s Arena Mode Saga and the sci-fi tale Entropy from prolific writer Christopher Priest.
