On the Cheap: Get ‘Shaft,’ ‘Django/Zorro’ and More in This Week’s Humble Bundle
This week marked the release of Shaft: Imitation of Life, the second miniseries about the legendary private eye from Dynamite, and if you somehow missed out on the first series --- one of last year's best minis --- then here's a bit of good timing for you. This week's Humble Bundle features David F. Walker and Bilquis Eveley's Shaft: A Complicated Man.
But it's not alone, either. For fifteen bucks, you can grab everything that's on offer, including Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell's The Shadow: Fires of Creation, a collaboration between Neil Gaiman and Alice Cooper, and one of the most enjoyable crossovers in a long while, Django/Zorro.
In retrospect, it seems like the biggest no-brainer in the world, but Django/Zorro was a huge surprise when it came out back in 2014. With a script by Quentin Tarantino and Matt Wagner, and art by Esteve Polls, it serves as a sequel of sorts to Tarantino's Django Unchained, and, in a lot of ways, as the finale to what Wagner had been doing on Zorro. Given the timeline of the two stories, it takes place late in Zorro's life, pitting him against the villainous --- and just generally horrible --- Archduke of Arizona, with a chance meeting that gets Django involved as well.
Shaft: A Complicated Man is part of the pay-more-than-the-average tier, currently hovering at $10.65, and Django/Zorro at the higher $15 tier that grants access to everything, and in all honesty, fifteen bucks for those two stories alone is well worth it, even if there weren't 20 other books on offer as well. Check it out, and pick 'em up!
