SDCC: Grant Morrison, Stan Lee to Launch New Series Exclusively on Humble Bundle

Comic book legends Grant Morrison and Stan Lee will work with Graphic India to bring digital exclusives to Humble Bundle, including the launch of Morrison's first ever digital series "Avatarex" and Lee's "Chakra The Invincible."

"Avatarex," which imagines a world where living myth encounters contemporary culture in India, will be released in new 6-page chapters every two weeks. Likewise, Lee's "Chakra The Invincible" -- based on the animated series launched on Cartoon Network India -- will launch exclusively in this bundle. Those who purchase Humble Bundle presents "Tales From India" featuring Grant Morrison and Stan Lee will also be able to allocate some of their funds to Worldreader and Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

"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," Morrison said in a statement. "'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."

"I believe that educated young children are our world's best hope for the future and I'm very proud to be working with Graphic India and Humble Bundle to support Doctors Without Borders and Worldreader to assist those in greatest need and perhaps help inspire the doctors, artists, and leaders of tomorrow," he added.
