I've never seen any in stores, so where does one buy them?
I buy mine from a mail-order service. They offer considerable discounts, making it much cheaper than driving to the nearest comic book store.
I live in Toronto, Canada, and I go to The Silver Snail comic shop.
You should be able to find one close to you using this website:
Too bad I live in the middle of nowhere...
im near a comic book store. comicshoplocator.com is helpful, like when my local guy ran out of RID #2
a comic shop.
So you tried the link, and there's nothing close by? That's too bad. How do YOU get comics? (Or do you?)
Discount Comic Book Service
HeavyInk - Comic Book Store
The only comics I've ever gotten were packed in with figures.
I wish I could shop online, but I can't.
I get them from a local comic shop. The new series (MTMTE and RID) have me going every week an issue's released, which is the first time in a long time for me as I usually wait for trades.
Physically I usually go to local comic shop, there are several. Or if it's a Big Two book and I get lucky, Barnes and Nobles has a passable selection with their magazines. ToysRus has a small comic section near their super hero figures too. The most convient comic store went out recently so I'm more often left to go digital now.
Digitaly Comixology has worked great for me.
It's the current big name/most popular of a number of options for reading comics on Computers, Phones, and digital devices/pads.
Comixology has a website for reading comics on the computer, and an ap for Android and Apple devices. I use Comixology for reading the current TF comics digitally on my IPad.
I have two comic book stores in my city and I go to them both - although the one in the CBD is a little more comprehensive. Neither of them stock a lot of TF comics, but both will order them in. I also go and check out a book exchange place once every couple of weeks or so as they often get older ones come in and they sell them for $1 each.
I do buy a few online as well, good for retro comics.
do you need a credit card or anything?
Well you have to pay for the comics somehow. I can only speek for the Apple version since I've only used it on my Ipad. The Ipad ap version takes Itunes store points and gift cards which is generally what I use.
-ZacWilliam, I can't speak for the other versions payment options.
The Joker's Child in Fair Lawn, New Jersey.
Been going there since I was five. I'm over 30 now. My father went there, I went there, now my wife and kids go there too.
Big B comics Barrie, since they're closest to where I live.
