I've come across a little treasure trove, I didn't know whether to post it because I know Craig Miller's father is still selling back issues, so please delete this topic, but I thought people would really like these and find them useful:

I've got a link to the website where Craig Miller's father was selling back issues but it was never working anymore last year. (Is there a link working now ?)

Only the most recent issues were available.

I've ordered few issues, 8 or 10 years ago, but shipping fees were expensive for europeans (10 issues are heavy).

I was knowing Wrapped in Plastic since 1993 or 1994, but never found an issue during my many trips in the US in the 90's. (In big cities, Borders had a fanzine and alternative press departement, but never saw WiP).

When the blu ray boxset was released in 2014, I checked often on eBay for back issues.

And one day, I was taking a look to the sold items...the complete 75 magazines collection was sold ("Buy it now") few hours ago for 150 $ in mint condition.

The seller was apparently selling all the stuff from another person (maybe gone...) and had no idea what was this magazine.

Some old issue are sold sometimes 20 to 40 $ each.

Yeah, on ebay UK you're looking at £10-£20 an issue easily. Soon adds up if you're trying to build a collection. 

The website by Craig Miller's dad was working a couple of months ago when I was looking but doesn't seem to be there now.

Hooe everybody gets some sort of enjoyment out of these issues anyway ?
