Get a Dynamite Comic Book Deal on Groupees

I've been a fan of the offerings of comic book publisher Dynamite for a few years now because they take pulp fiction and retro stories like Battlestar Galactica, Flash Gordan, The Green Hornet, John Carter: Warlord of Mars, The Lone Ranger, The Six Million Dollar Man and Sherlock Holmes portraying them in updated adventures for modern audiences to enjoy while maintaining many of their classic elements.  Dynamite is offering for a limited time a digital deal on the website Groupees that will allow purchasers to sample a large number of their comic book series while also supporting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund with a percentage of the proceeds.

The Groupees web site is an alternate service similar to the Humble Bundles I've posted about several times before.  Instead of choosing your price though, consumers select how much they want to spend from designated levels of benefits.  20% of the purchase price in this Dynamite deal goes to the Comic Book Defense Fund.  Spend a minimum of $1 and you'll receive 34 comic books that include selections from Project Superpowers, The Spider, Sherlock Holmes, and Red Sonja.  Spend $5 or more and you will receive a selection of comic books from additional series that include Games of Thrones, Army of Darkness, Dresden Files, the Green Hornet, and Django/Zorro.  $10 will get you a variety of issues from Dreadstar, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, and Legenderry plus the Dynamite Art of Alex Ross picture book. Alex Ross has really become recognized as one of the best artists in the comic book industry so that book in itself makes this package worthwhile.  Additionally, for every 1,000 purchases, an additional bonus item is added to everyone's package.  Since most of the titles in this deal are ones I actually haven't read yet, I spent $10 to check them out and to show some support for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.  My $10 purchased 101 digital comic book issues that normally cost from .99 cents to $3.99 each.  For example to demonstrate the savings, Kevin Smith's Green Hornet digital issues included in my Groupee deal on the Comixology website/app are priced at $1.99 each which would have cost me $20 just for those 10 issues if I bought them there.

Since 1986, when Michael Correa, the store manager for a Lansing, Illinois comic book shop called FRIENDLY FRANK'S was arrested for the possession and sale of comic books as obscene material, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) has provided legal assistance to protect the First Amendment rights of the readers, creators, retailers, publishers, and librarians of comic books, manga, and graphic novels.  Twenty-eight years later the CBLDF is still tackling censorship issues and standing up for First Amendment rights, including its recent efforts to have a Utah law that censored Internet speech and a California law that eliminated First Amendment protections for violent images declared unconstitutional by Federal Courts. In additional to legal advocacy, the CBLDF also provides educational outreach regarding citizens rights in regard to the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.

The digital comic books are stored on your Groupee website profile and can be downloaded from there to your PC in DRM-free files which means that you don't have to view them through a particular website or app like Comixology; but you'll need a good unzip program, like Express Reader, and a pdf reader compatible with your phone, tablet or whatever device you wish to read with to access and enjoy the comics. You can also use Torrents to access your digital files from Groupee.

Payments can be made with a Paypal account or you can use Paypal without an account to process a credit card payment.  Groupees also accepts payments via Amazon and Bitcoins.

Don't hesitate if you are interested in this comic book deal though because it will be gone in a week. For more information, visit
