Only big places bother with stuff avaliable in newsagents... there's not as much to gain. Plus, as you say, it'll be competing with back-issues and the like. Some big comic stores do stock standard newstand stock, but not many - they'd have to set up an account with a wholesaler and the like, which probably isn't profitable for a fistful of titles that are freely avaliable elsewhere - especially seeing as people are likely to go "Oooooh" to something like that on the shelves of Smiths, but have a much wider choice in an FP.

Well, much wider is obviously a bit of an exaggeration, depending on whether you live near a decent FP, or an FP run by a bunch of idiots who think they're Tim Bisley.
