Sorry if this sounds like an advertisement but I'm really enjoying this series and I don't want to give any spoilers!

There's several ways to get comics these days:
- Buy the individual issues from your local comic shop. You can find comic shops near you by looking in the phone book or at comic-shop-locator or call 1-888-COMICBOOK (1-888-266-4226). Keep in mind that comic shops are all individually owned. Some cater to supernerds while others make an effort to attract casual fans and kids.
- You can wait until after all the issues have been published individually. The publisher will then collect all of them into a trade paper back (TPB), which looks like a thin paper back book. You can buy those from book sellers like Amazon. Most brick-and-morter book stores should have some Star Trek TPBs in their graphic novel section right now since several have been released recently.
- Order individual issues, subscriptions, or TPBs directly from IDW's online store.
Hopefully, I haven't given you info-overload. I keep trying to convince people that there's more to comics than the superhero genre. Comics can be a great medium to enjoy science fiction. It combines the visual element of a TV show or movie with the unlimited FXs budget of a novel.
Give Star Trek comics a try and I hope you enjoy them!
