“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.”

In addition, Stan Lee’s Chakra The Invincible, featuring Lee’s first Indian superhero creation, will see its exclusive digital E-book release in this bundle. Based on the animated series, which received over 30 million views worldwide on Angry Birds ToonsTV, and launched on Cartoon Network India.

“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,”

Books are necessary for the development of these skills, and still 50% of schools in Africa have few or no books at all (SACMEQ II).
