Is the NSU available anywhere besides by getting a subscription?

Even though a subscription saves you money... you can order single issues.

I have several times.

In the UK it's sold in various comic stores, and some larger stores e.g.Borders (do you have this in the US?). It sounds obvious but have you looked on auction sites online or online stores?

Its Not Subscription Unique ! Big Grin

NSU should be available at any comic store in the USA and also places like Borders.

I haven't been able to find it anywhere so I rely on just ordering it from the website itself.

Must be the small town I live in.

Hi Racer Xavier:

As everyone else has posted, for the most part Barnes & Noble and Borders are the two main chains where you will find NSU. Not all stores in the chain carry it.

And has been said, all comic shops and hobby shops who order through Diamond Comic Distributors can get a copy for you. Many comic shops can also set up a "subscription" for you as well where they will order all copies for you and save them for you until you come in.

By the way, if you are going to the Baltimore Comic Con next weekend (I see you are from Baltimore), you'll likely find some dealers there who carry the magazine, such as Wandring Rebel.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Yes, they should. The one local comic book store close by does sell it, BUT the most recent issues are almost a year old! Roll Eyes

If only this were true. The only comic shop other then The Mystery Box that I have ever found NSU was Van's cards and comics, and I hate his shop. Van is a ...(insert your negative word here).

Most comics shops seem to overlook the magazine because of instead of putting it with the Cards on the Diamond Comics order form, it is back with other magazines like Fangoria or (name your obscure magazine).

In my view the most reliable way of obtaining the magazine is to buy it on subscription.

I know I've got to get a subscription.

With my penchant for promos- it helps. However, I'd get it even without the promos. Big Grin

I have mine on order from a local comic shop.
But I'm thinking about taking a subscription out at the NEC in November.

Would that it were true. My local hobby store only orders a couple of copies. Even the larger bookstores have it tightly limited, so unless you remember to reserve one or come in shortly after the new issue arrives you can easily be shutout. After missing a couple issues like this I slapped myself on the side of the head and took a subscription. Its the only sure way to go.

Subscribing is the way to go . I always have my copy before the local comic shop does, and they only seem to order the issues that are comic related, which kind of makes sense. Subscribe!!

A Local Comic Book store carries a few issues each month, and the semi national book store chain "Hastings" carries them here in Texas
