Thrilling Adventure Hour, the new original graphic novel from Archaia is in stores tomorrow, but it actually sold out at the distributor level almost 3 weeks ago. After the book debuted at San Diego Comic Con, orders rose rapidly and wiped out the company's backstock.
With a 5000 print run, Archaia are going back to press, but more companies won't be available until the second week of October.
The result of a $192,000 Kickstarter against a $55,000 goal, the money went to produce this book from the Nerdist Industries podcast guys.
