DriveThruComics.com, the first digital comics retailer, announced today that it is supporting the flood relief efforts of Doctors Without Borders by offering a charity
bundle of digital comics and e-books. For a $10 donation, customers will receive $170 worth of products. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the charity bundle will be donated to Pakistan flood relief.
“We’re happy to have this chance to help out a great cause like Doctors Without Borders. ” said Matt M McElroy, Publisher Relations Manager for DriveThruComics.com. “We have some very cool titles from a variety of publishers donated for this bundle.”
The DriveThru sites, which includes digital gaming retailer DriveThruRPG.com, raised over $175,000 for the Haitian Earthquake relief efforts earlier this year. DriveThru has renewed its commitment to Doctors Without Borders because of their tireless dedication to provide medical assistance and aid all over the world.
“Discovering the power to make a difference, as we did with our Haiti efforts, was inspirational,” said Steve Wieck, co-owner of DriveThruRPG and DriveThruComics. “Once again we are driven to leverage our tools and our marketplace to reach out to those who suffer, and we are grateful that we have the ability to do so.”
In addition to the bundle at DriveThruComics.com, a similar bundle is also available through digital hobby gaming site www.drivethrurpg.com for $25. The Pakistan Flood Relief Comics Bundle will be available until Monday, October 25th at www.drivethrucomics.com.

Entertainment, Moonstone Books, Crusade Fine Arts and many more. Their continued mission is to support comic publishers and provide fans with a great selection of digital comics to download legally.
