Comments

  1. I’ve said this elsewhere, but I was disappointed by the image quality. Most of the comics have very noticeable JPEG compression artifacts (although, last I checked, 4 of them were also available in high-quality PDF versions — which have the opposite problem and are way higher-quality than they need to be, making for unreasonably large files).

    On the one hand, it feels a little petty to complain about the file quality given the huge number of excellent books available here at a very low price. On the other hand, I wouldn’t expect degraded graphics if I bought a game from a Humble Bundle, and the recent Walking Dead bundle had high-quality but reasonably-sized CBZ files.

    The Transformers bundle had the same problems as this one (except that every Transformers comic was available in a way-too-big high-quality version, not just 4 of them).

    I suspect that the reason Image has the best downloads available of the three bundles I’ve bought is that Image already sells DRM-free comics elsewhere (on its own site and on Comixology) and has experience doing it. I would expect the likes of Thrillbent, Monkeybrain, and Valiant to produce similarly high-quality DRM-free comics for the same reason, and I would be happy to buy a Humble Bundle from them. But I don’t think I’ll be buying another one from IDW, Boom, or any other publisher that doesn’t have experience in this area anytime soon, unfortunately.
