So I just checked the Castalia House print edition store and was going to buy another batch of Alt-Hero #1 and they were listed as backordered. I know I'm speculating but, with some good press and other media possible, gold logo editions might be quite a collector's item. Is it possible they sold the first 2,500 and are now into the regular logo editions? Or do they print something like 500 at a time? Anyway, I'm an excited collector again!

PS - has there been any word on sales #s? too early for that? or a trade secret? :D :D :D :D

Yeah, we went to fix the margin issue, then realized that it wasn't actually a setup issue, but a variable trim issue that our fix would have made worse. So, we have to resubmit the old one. It will be available again in a few days. There are still about 1k gold logo editions available.

My five just appeared today. Delighted with how the color looks on the printed page. Bravo Matteo. I find the colors a bit too aggressive digitally, but still feel compelled to download and read anyway. But with a bit of saturation on a good stock, they look wonderful.

Looking at the printed Arkhaven products to date, I am impressed with the professionalism. As is typical with anything Vox is involved in, he has made no effort to gratuitously mimic the format of Marvel and DC's current offerings. Everything about this is a little ... off, in a very good way. Mostly for the better. These are thin books, not mere pamphlets.

The issues with sufficient white space in the spine have been addressed, I understand. That's great, because without staples, flattening these books is pretty damaging.

So no variants? They are the same?

Almost the same. The interiors are identical. The back cover is now centered on the entire back, unlike the previous version, which did not take the spine into account. We used our normal back cover layout initially, forgetting that the flat nature of the thinner comics would require us to do so with them.
