Re: New UK (& Other?) Partwork - Official Star Trek Starship Collectio

good luck finding it on newsagents shelves past issue 5 or so. when i was at Martins, we stocked the first five issues of a partwork on the shelf and then it went order-only otherwise they're a bugger to keep track of and to shelve.

from what i know, that's SOP for other newsies too. and even then you sometimes wound up with some bugger who orders it, collects the first dozen or so and then stops coming in and doesn't even phone and cancel the order so you wind up with 4 issues hanging about hoping someone will either randomly buy it if you shove it on the shelf or that a staff member might buy it, or you try sending it back hoping for the credit from the wholesalers...
