Ben Chambers is a private investigator at the end of his career, an arc best viewed through the bottom of a whiskey bottle. He has investigated missing persons, adulterous lovers, embezzling partners… and none of it has ever changed anything. Now, Ben looks at his life and wonders what was it all for, really? He resignedly takes on one last case, investigating the unsolved murder of corporate CEO Jason Black’s son, an Iraq veteran killed shortly after an anti-war rally. Ben expected that his investigation would take him into the past through photos, research, and interviews. What he never expected was that the trip into earlier years would be literal… as he time travels back to the night of the
murder! Will Detective Chambers be able to save the young man’s life, and if so, what kind of consequences might it have on the present? From the mind of J. Michael Straczynski, Hugo Award-winning creator of Babylon 5 and writer for the blockbuster films Thor, Changeling, and World War Z!

Dynamite Partners with Groupees.com to Benefit the CBLDF

Groupees LogoDynamite Entertainment has announced that Groupees LLC, a unique media and charity bundling site, will host a ten-day comic book bundle promotion that allows fans and curious newcomers to purchase over 80 digital Dynamite comics and graphic novels with “Pay What You Want” purchasing power. A portion of proceeds will be contributed to one of the industry’s most important charitable organizations, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. The bundle promotion will run from Thursday, March 26, through Monday, April 6, on the website Groupees.com.

Through the Groupees program, customers can purchase a bundle of digital comic book and graphic novels for a price they decide. The first tier of exciting digital content is unlocked with the dollar minimum investment, but consumers can double their take by reaching the $5.00 second tier. Dynamite offers a highly desirable batch of comics at the third tier for a $10.00 minimum investment, including the bestselling Dynamite Art of Alex Ross art book.

dynamite-logoFor those who participate in the “Pay What You Want” initiative with considerable support, Dynamite will reward the top ten consumers with special prizes. The Top Prize will see the contributor illustrated on the cover of an upcoming Dynamite comic book, alongside the title character, and the cover will be drawn by superstar artist Jae Lee. The winner will also receive 100 copies of the comic and the original artwork. The second, third, and fourth-highest contributors will be illustrated as characters on one interior page of a Dynamite comic book, while the fifth through tenth-highest contributors will receive a hand-drawn illustration of their favorite Dynamite character, illustrated by Jae Lee. Additionally, top-secret Group Bonuses will be unlocked for all consumers to enjoy when the overall orders reach certain thresholds.

cbldfPart of the proceeds from the first-ever Dynamite Groupees Bundle will contribute to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, 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.

This is the second such service to offer this sort of program, but despite claims, Dynamite isn’t the first to offer a comics bundle to support charity through the service (though it might be the first 10 day bundle). We covered a bundle in February 2014 that featured independent comics and benefited a few charities.

You can catch the full list of what you get below.

The $1.00 Minimum Tier features superhero action, pulp intrigue, Victorian mystery, tough-talkin’ private eyes, and mind-blowing swords-and-sorcery, courtesy of some of the comic industry’s brightest stars: Gail Simone (Batgirl), Alex Ross (Kingdom Come), Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Jim Krueger (Earth X), David Liss (Black Panther), and more!

Following Zorro’s first appearance at the Archduke’s slave-driven, rail construction site, Django begins to piece together clues that lead him to a startling conclusion…and a fond reminiscence.  Meanwhile, Diego expresses his doubts as to the Archduke’s claim of territorial endowment.   Things come to a head when suspicion eventually centers on Django himself, leading to a bloody confrontation and a surprising bit of role reversal.  This must-read series is the first official sequel to any of writer/director Quentin Tarantino’s films with the final script provided by Eisner-award winner, Matt Wagner and gorgeous western art by Esteve Polls.
