A new comics bundle from Humble Bundle, featuring Pathfinder comics, is running for the next few days. Comics that South African comics creator Sean Izaakse worked on are included in the bundle so this is your chance to grab them at a fraction of their retail price.

Humble Bundle is currently running a Pathfinder comics bundle on the back of its Pathfinder RPG (role-playing-game) bundle. The bundle comprises a selection of comics, set in the Pathfinder universe, that were published around 2013/2014 by Dynamite, as well as a selection of RPG battle maps (PDFs that you can print) for tabletop gaming. The complete bundle is worth $105 but you can set your own price, starting at just one dollar for the base collection, which comprises 12 comics and a battle-map pack.

Each comic is provided as various file formats: CBZ, EPUB, PDF, and high-quality PDF for larger comics whose standard PDF is lower-resolution in order to be under 100 MB in size. (Google Play Newsstand, an Android e-reading tool, can't handle PDFs larger than 100 MB.) The files are all also DRM free so you're not going to have problems with rights or restrictions and will be able to view the comics on any device that supports the file formats.

Higher payment tiers unlock more comics and maps - paying more than the average payment (which is currently sitting at just under $12), nets you 14 more comics, another battle-map pack, and an exclusive single map, while the static $15 tier offers a further seven comics, a third battle-map pack, and two Humble bonus maps that are exclusive to this bundle.

There's also a final $26 tier that includes the Shattered Star Miniatures Booster Pack, which is physical merchandise - four fully painted plastic Pathfinder Battles: Shattered Star miniatures - but this tier excludes shipping costs, which vary between territories and is likely to be at least $74 (yes, you read that right!) for South Africa.

South African comics creator Sean Izaakse, who is the co-creator of Stray, one of the characters in the big Action Labs Actionverse event that will be happening in comics in April (we'll have more on that soon), features in some of the comics in The Humble Comics Bundle: Pathfinder.



Pathfinder: Goblins! #2

"Two goblin-themed short stories, set in the beloved Pathfinder RPG universe! Gurgle, the most brilliant Longlung ever to draw breath, has a plan. Along with his feckless pal Deep, he'll convince a tribe of Squidwhistlers to help him sink a treasure ship, and then... profit! Meanwhile, a pack of goblins steals an invisibility cloak from a traveling merchant. Once the mystical pranks lose their appeal, Mub the Goblin knows there's only one crime worthy of a true goblin hero: stealing Chief Korgamorg's magic pig! "

Sean Izaakse illustrated the second story, "Magic Pig", which was written by James L Sutter and coloured by Thomas Bonvillain. This comic appears in the base bundle so you can grab it for as little as a dollar but I'd really recommend buying the entire bundle. You can see the eponymous pig in the image at the top of this post.



Pathfinder Vol.2: Of Tooth & Claw

"When the Pathfinder adventurers are hired to scare away bandits who've taken over the abandoned outpost prison called Raven's Watch, they get a lot more than they bargained for. It's a trap! The hit comic series based on Paizo's incredible award-winning fantasy world, fiction line, and tabletop RPG continues! Sword and sorcery fans and gamers alike will enjoy this latest chapter from Paizo Publishing and Dynamite."

This story, which was written by Jim Zub, spans Pathfinder issues 7 to 12. Sean Izaakse did the art for issues 10, 11, and 12, with colours by Ross A Campbell, who also coloured Sean Izaakse's work on Stray.

These comics are available to you if you pay the average price or more.

Spot The Credits

You'll also see Sean Izaakse's name credited in other issues in the bundle, such as Pathfinder: City Of Secrets #1, but only because he did a selection of variant covers for Dynamite (Dynamite is excessively obsessed with variant covers). Those, sadly, haven't been compiled into the comics.

The most logical tier to buy is the $15 tier, which gets you everything except the miniatures. This cost is about the same as a typical trade paperback (a paperback collection of around four to six previous single-issue comics) so it's a great deal financially too. You don't need to know anything about the Pathfinder universe in order to enjoy the comics and, if you are already playing Pathfinder, you'll enjoy seeing stories set in familiar locations.

You have until Tuesday at 20:00 (CAT/GMT+2) to grab the bundle before it's gone for good. Don't hesitate because of the rand/dollar exchange rate - it's about as good as it's going to be for a while and it's not going to change much over the weekend.
