"Believe me, we're trying to keep it in stock," said SAVAGE DRAGON creator Erik Larsen. "We've been printing much more than we predicted needing and the demand just kept growing. I'm thrilled to know that whether people agree or disagree with Dragon, they're extremely passionate about what may be the most important US Presidential election yet."
