Well, other than Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge and a lot of variable manga. Then, of course, there are actual comic stores but those are very few and only located in major cities. At least I can buy some interesting manga from nearby stores but if I actually want to keep up with regular comics I just have to get the collected editions. It's easier that way.

There are eBay shops y'know. Generally cheaper too.

Yeah but getting them there one issue at a time isn't really all that great. Getting a bunch of them at once isn't all that great either as, like I've already mentioned, the dicks in charge decided it's a good idea to make everything ordered from outside the country cost double the price with import taxes.
Wow really!? WTF is that about? What about eBay shops within your own country then?

AAAHHAAHAHAAHAHA! eBay shops in THIS country? If that ever happened I'd know hell has frozen over. We only have online bidding sites and getting anything not originally released here is rather rare. I buy my collected editions from this semi-shady book import store and I love them for going through all the trouble in getting their comics from... well, wherever they do.

@SERIOUSLY: That's exactly what's going on. The sad part is, if we even had anything interesting sold within this country we wouldn't have to buy our stuff from foreign sellers in the first place. Basically the only domestic thing we can have is potatoes. Or, well, even most of those have been imported here. At least until now. And then they are shocked when piracy rates go higher.
