Dollars and cents of it all notwithstanding - Go hardcover on LSotW - a lot of great world building prose that is unlikely to get published elsewhere.



Yes.

Well OK, the last TF bundle was mostly just to get digital versions of stuff I already had anyway :lol:
But the last was the Valiant bundle, and I only read part of one trade.
And I complain I keep running out of stuff to read ...

You think that's bad? I have dozens of games from various Humble Bundles that I've never redeemed, never installed, never played. Some of it can be chalked up to "I bought the bundle for THIS game, those ones don't interest me", others I don't have that luxury. And like you, I didn't read the last Humble TF Bundle. But I started reading last night, and yeah, this is some good stuff.

Same here. All of it. But I dont regret buying those 10 bundles and 50 or so games I will never play. Wait, I mean I dont regret spending the 20$ ;)

Seems like an error. MTMTE and RID volumes 6 contain their respective issues 28-33. When I purchased the bundle I received the whole volumes. If you want confirmation, shoot them an email.

I stand corrected by below posts.

No, they counted the Dark Cybertron issues in with the RiD/MTMTE Trades incorrectly the first time, which they should not have. Those are in their own Trade volumes and not contained in the others.

If you skip the dark cybertron trades, as part of MTMTS's run, will you be confused?

Lol XD.
It's odd isn't it, you just end up hoarding digital stuff, because hey, it doesn't take up any space XD

Yeah, they accidentally included the Dark Cybertron issues in the first count, but for anyone wondering why MTMTE has one issue more than RID, it's due to MTMTE Vol 1 containing the Death of Optimus Prime along with the first four issues of MTMTE.

Yes you will, Dark Cybertron brings a few pretty big changes for MTMTE, sure most of it is explained and expanded upon in the following issues, but it's better to have read Dark Cybertron.

Oh, ok I get it now. I thought 'Dark Cybertron' was it's own thing, not counting as however many issues of MTMTE and RiD.

And with that my digital comic library has gone from 0 to 75, WOOOOO!!

I just realized, the only stuff in this bundle that I don't have yet are the single issues, and I would have gotten those in tpb form anyway ...
Oh well, still means I got digital copies of everything, and I get to catch up to be up to date! XD

Lol, now I remember why I barely read what I buy with them, I like to read digital stuff on my tablet, but the HB app just sucks. If you download more than two things at a time and or do anything else with your tablet while it downloads - it just downloads forever without making any progress whatsoever, still had 4 things from the last bundle marked as "downloading" without making any progress XD

I know I should edit my previous post, but this way you'll notice that there actually is something new and check the thread.

To all those who've downloaded the comics already, redownload Transformers #37, the original version they put up is completely screwed up with pages totally out of order. I downloaded it just now to make a short tutorial on how to fix it yourself, and found that they fixed it themselves.

So yeah, if you've got the cbz version, erase that and redownload it.

At a cursory glance, the pdf I downloaded on the first day of the sale appears to be fine, so it doesn't seem to be an error on all formats.

No you don't, you can download the Humble Bundle App and then download directly onto your device from there. Here's some download info if you need it.

I would suggest using ComicRack for reading the CBZ file, best comic reader on tablets.

But as I said earlier, the HumbleBundle app is awful with downloads, it can only download one thing at a time.

I just loaded my computer-downloaded PDFs into Google Play Books, which then lets me access them on my mobile device if I want. Downsides are very few sorting options and the apparent inability to choose how you split the pages (I had a lot of two-page spreads cut the wrong way). To each their own, however.

Yeah, I wanted to do that too because I love the page animation in Play Books, but it never worked for me.
I managed to upload the Ironhide miniseries back then, but that took like four hours to actually work, and ended up having half of its pages being f**ked up and corrupted so I gave up on that.

ComicRack is great though, here's a link to the free version
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... iewer.free

The only difference is that the payed one costs a fiver, doesn't have ads and it may have another feature that I never use.

The only downside is that it's difficult to find legal comics for it, since the formats it uses are mostly used by pirates, well and those that preserve old, out of print public domain comics.
