Dollar General Store is a 15,000-strong chain of variety stores headquartered in Goodlettsville, Tennessee. One of the most profitable stores operating in rural United States with revenue reaching around $21 billion in 2017. They are common in places that have never even heard of a comic book store.

I understand they had a print run of half a million copies… so you shouldn't have to pay more than two cents – or a packet of cornflakes – to get your own copy. If you live in the US, that is…
