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.
