With all the excitement surrounding the release of IDW’s Star Wars Adventures it’s somewhat disappointing that the series isn’t available on UK newsstands, only on the digital platform ComiXology.

Bleeding Cool took a look at the situation.

If you live in the UK, comic stores haven’t been allowed to order it. Some may use grey distribution methods, but customers will have to expect both a wait and a premium price to cover the sub-distribution.

IDW can’t sell the print copy in the UK, for some reason, ComiXology UK can.

And, because of the strange disparity in UK and US exchange rates, it will cost less to buy in the UK (£2.49 = $3.28) than in the US ($3.99).
