In preparation of Banned Books Week, Humble Bundle is offering an assortment of comics, as well as authors, that have been challenged and in some cases banned. Many notable creators are represented here, including Alan Moore, Scott Snyder, Jeff Smith, Jeff Lemire, Wendy Pini, Garth Ennis, Cory Doctorow, Jock, Kevin O’Neill, the Hernandez Brothers, Julie Doucet, and more. With the help of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF), this bundle was curated to be representative of the comics that need protection under the First Amendment. Free from censorship, a wide range of titles from award-winning creators are offered in honor of the week that celebrates them.
Customers can name their price for Maggie the Mechanic (Love & Rockets), The Frank Book, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 3, CBLDF Presents: Liberty, Madame Paul Affair, and Bone Vol. 1.
Those who pay more than the average price will also receive The Little Man, The Boys: Herogasm, Heartbreak Soup (Love & Rockets), SideScrollers, Barefoot Gen Vol 1: A Cartoon Story of Hiroshima, Essex County, andElfquest: The Final Quest Vol. 1.

Even more controversial titles to be added mid-promotion on September 30, 2015.
