Dynamite Launches New StoryBundle Promotion


Dynamite Entertainment is as big a fan of bundles for charity as anyone and their latest is no exception. The publisher is teaming up with StoryBundle, the unique literature bundling site known for its support of indie authors, to host an all-new comic book and graphic novel promotion that will allow readers to purchase over 1,500 pages worth of Pulp-inspired stories from Dynamite Entertainment with "Pay What You Want" purchasing power beginning at $5.00 during its Mystery! Masks! Dynamite Pulps! Promotion. A portion of the proceeds will be contributed to two very important charitable organizations, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Girls Write Now.

"The Mystery! Masks! Dynamite Pulps! StoryBundle is a great way for fans to check out some of our top titles," says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. "Whether they grew-up with characters like The Shadow, Miss Fury, or any of our wonderful Pulp characters, or they have only just begun their journey into the seedy underbelly of crime noir comics this is a great way to check out some fantastic stories. The vast number of titles we're offering in our latest Storybundle is perfect for fans from all walks of life."

StoryBundle will offer a fixed set of Dynamite comics featuring iconic characters like from The Shadow to The Spider, Doc Savage, Masquarade, Miss Fury and more, in a bundle, but available only for a limited time. Fans and newcomers are empowered to decide how much they want to pay for each bundle. Additional books will be unlocked when the purchaser achieves the bonus threshold. StoryBundle has already sold hundreds of thousands of books through its popular horror, fantasy, video game and sci-fi book bundles, and welcomes its huge audience to expand their reading experience to include these newly-offered Dynamite digital stories.

The first tier of the all-new Dynamite StoryBundle, unlocked with a minimum purchase, includes the following graphic novels, and comprises over 720 pages of great comic storytelling:

• The Avenger Special 2014: The Television Killers
• Codename Action
• Noir trade paperback Featuring Miss Fury, Black Sparrow & special guest The Shadow
• Zorro Vol 2: Clashing Blades
• The Spider Vol 1: Terror Of The Zombie Queen

StoryBundle founder Jason Chen says, "Part of the proceeds from the Mystery! Masks! Dynamite Pulps! 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."
