  2. Back issues or on sale on bidorbuy.co.za
    Or try a comic shop like Readers Den or Outer Limits. A secondhand bookshop may have some.
    There are also books available which are collections of stories from MAD (see DC Comics website) - these you should be able to get from good book shops or kalahari.com
