In a series first, SOTRU explores a vast community that's based around a medium, rather than a geographic location. Despite the outdated stereotype of a solitary nerd holed up in his bedroom, burying himself in a world of fantasy, comic books serve as the connection point for a diverse community of people, who are drawn to them for all manner of reasons. And sometimes, comics become the vehicle for people to take action within the community itself or inspire individuals to make a difference in the wider world. We meet the wide range of people who make up this community and hear stories of their efforts to seek justice and right wrongs in the comics ecosystem. We'll meet the people who love this world, the people who create it, those who believe there's something awry in Nerdville, and those who've made it their life's missions to bring superheroes off the page and into the real world.
