Humble Bundle is a webstore known for their deals on collections of video games sold at a low bundle price. A portion of the the proceeds go to charity, and the rest going to the game developers. The customer “pays what they want,” but there are pre-determined price points that, if paid above, unlock more content. Recently, the site debuted a brand-new offering for post-holiday spenders, and they are going after manga fans in style.
