Get Comics and Help a Charity With Groupees.com

Groupees.com is a website where they organize comic, game, and/or music and bundle them up to benefit charities. Similar to the video game focused Humble Bundle. They’ve launched a Indie Comic bundle with some killer titles including, !, American Terrorist, Evil Diva, Grimm Crew Presents: Dead Future, Grimm Crew Presents: Winter’s Eye, Myth, Smoke & Mirror, Spies, Swipe, The Deadbeat, and The Lexian Chronicles. That’s a whole lot of comics and you get to help a charity!

The platform is aimed at turning the digital download experience into a fun, social event. This campaign includes titles from Alterna, Markosia, Raven Warren, GrayHaven, Angry Viking, and A Wave Blue World. When people buy the bundle they can choose for part of their contribution to be donated to one of 3 wildlife charities, Wolf Haven International, Animal Welfare Institute, and Farm Sanctuary.

Having read a few of these comics, it’s well worth the money, even if it’s just a dollar (we encourage you to give more though). When certain goals are met, new comics unlock as well, this is a great idea and we encourage everyone to pitch in! The event runs until March 6.
