Spider-Man Creator Stan Lee to Raise Funds for Charities
Legendary writers Stan Lee, Grant Morrison, and Deepak Chopra are working with Graphic India to bring digital comic book exclusives to Humble Bundle to raise money for Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and Worldreader.
This includes the worldwide exclusive release of the just announced Grant Morrison’s Avatarex Chapter 1.
Avatarex, published by Graphic India, will be Morrison’s first digital comic and will feature a new 6-page chapter digitally every two weeks, with the first chapter on Humble Bundle. In Avatarex, the epic world of living myth collides with the mundane realities and cultural upheavals of contemporary India.
“At a time when I feel I’ve said about as much as I have to say about the American superhero, this is an opportunity to re-imagine the entire concept through a different cultural lens,” said Grant Morrison.”Avatarex is the first digital only comic I’ve written and I’m excited by the opportunity to create for a more accessible global platform.
Spider-Man, Iron-Man, and The Avengers co-creator, Stan Lee, will join the promotion with Chakra The Invincible, featuring Lee’s first Indian superhero creation. It will have its exclusive digital E-book release in this bundle.
“I’m thrilled to be working with my friends at Graphic India for the exclusive digital comic launch of my action-packed, thrill-a-minute, Indian superhero, Chakra The Invincible on Humble Bundle, while also supporting two great charities,” said Stan Lee.
