Ahead of the upcoming U.S. midterm elections, Humble Bundle is releasing a new collection of books and comic books aimed at promoting political engagement, curated in partnership with the American Civil Liberties Union and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Gary Whitta.
The Get the Vote Out 100% bundle features titles from a number of publishers, including DC Entertainment, IDW, Image Comics, Lonely Planet, Microcosm Publishing, No Starch Press, Oni Press, Quirk, Skyhorse and Tachyon, as well as the debut of an all-new anthology, RESIST!: Tales from a Future Worth Fighting Against, edited by Whitta, Christie Yant and Hugh Howey. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to the ACLU.
“I created RESIST! as an opportunity for today’s best science-fiction authors to speak to the current socio-political moment through a sci-fi lens,” Whitta said in a statement about the promotion. “Though the 27 stories in the anthology are set in the future, or on other worlds entirely, the themes explored are rooted entirely in the here and now. My intention for this project was always that it would benefit a worthwhile and relevant cause, and so I couldn’t be more thrilled to launch RESIST! in partnership with the ACLU, with that organization benefiting from the proceeds of every sale.”
Danielle Silber, director of strategic partnerships for the ACLU, added, “We are heartened by the outpouring of support from writers and illustrators who are championing civil rights and the work of the ACLU. Through their art they are advancing democracy and helping us to make dystopia a fiction. We appreciate their and Humble Bundle’s efforts to bolster voter education to ensure everyone votes like their rights depend on it.”
Authors featured in RESIST! include Charlie Jane Anders, John Scalzi, Saladin Ahmed, Kieron Gillen and Sarah Kuhn.
Sale of Get the Vote Out 100% runs from Oct. 22 through 11 a.m. PT on Nov. 5. More information, including a full list of titles available as part of the bundle, can be found here.
