I just use good old fleabay matey. (Initially anyway)
There is a seller on there you can pre-order with or just buy whatever they have out / left and you get them delivered for free . . . . . how they do that I dunno as the comics are as cheap as in any other comic store give or take.

Shame we aren't closer as I'd lend you my Kindle as I have them all on there - and loathe as I am to say it its a fantastic way to read them and keep the comics in good nick. As you tap each panel it flows to the next and fills the screen, sometimes zooming into speech or action areas with each press of the screen and it works REALLY well. Hard to describe but it is pretty cool.

Just for info, Star Wars #1 is now on its 5th print run! Issue number 6 has just come out this week I think.
Leia is on issue 4 (of 5) and Vader is on issue 6.
Lando is out in July and looks the business! (Beautiful artwork)

The seller is called Disposable Heroes on eBay or site of similar name.

On the kindle I use comixology, a cracking app.
