Best

Kind of like the Godfather of Atlanta comics. I still Oxford itself, getting books at the same place as my comics was cool. Huge graphic novel section. I just don't make the drive...

Worst

I dialed the number and Oxford Comics picked up. The same address is listed, but an alternate phone number

Cool stuff but pricey at times 3/29/2011

I went herre looking for some Walking dead trades for a friend cause i was told they had them. They had everything i was looking for, big selection of everything really. Lots of statues toys figures and stuff, but a lot of it was more than i wanted to pay. still a good store if you into comics and science fiction. more

Four-color fantastic! 3/13/2011

If you're looking for ANYTHING in the comics, sci-fi, horror, illustration, toy or collectible mediums, this is the place for you. I've been frequenting this place for at least 10 years or more and I still can't figure out how they cram so much great stuff into one store! more

Good store but not great 4/25/2010

After hearing so much about them, I finally checked them out. My regular comic shop has a better selection than they do; the only thing they have more of is porn comics and rental DVDs, and I'm not a customer for either one of those things. It's hard to get anyone to help you without walking up to the front of the store and interrupting them. Since it's a long, narrow store I got tired of walking back and forth every time I had a question. They need more parking, too! more

Great book store 3/3/2010

This is one of the best book stores in the city they have everything you are looking for and more! The staff is always willing to help and you can come in for game times as well. more

games 1/17/2010

This place here is unique in it's own way. I only come here for games and trade in sometimes. Great place to buy a gift you can't find anywhere else. more

Excellent Selection, Awful Service 10/28/2009

Oxford Comics is an excellent place to find virtually anything related to comics or other collectibles. They get in a massive selection of mainstream Marvel and DC comics, as well as independent stuff and manga. They also have a large assortment of peripheral merchandise, including action figures, clothing, posters and other items. They are a great source for hard-to-find or obscure comic-related items and prices are generally reasonable for collectibles. However, the customer service is atrocious. A couple of the younger clerks are decent, but most of the staff are disinterested and unhelpful. One older female staff member is particularly rude and treats customers with exceptional contempt. The staff also do not appear to be knowledgeable about their merchandise and release dates for said merchandise. The store offers a ""hold""/""subscription"" service but does not provide any discount for hold customers, does not provide bags for hold customers and does not allow hold customers to reserve some promotional items. Unless you're looking for an item you absolutely can't find elsewhere, don't bother with the poor customer service at Oxford Comics. New release comics and other items can be obtained at a number of other stores that actually appreciate their customers. Pros: Great selection and variety of comics, manga, toys, etc Cons: Terrible service more

Duplicate Listing for Oxford Comics 6/17/2009

Best Comic Shop In Town, Except For The Service 6/17/2009

Oxford is the best comic shop in Atlanta in terms of what it stocks. It has a fantastic selection of graphic novels, comics and back issues of comics, action figures, DVDs, games, and so on. There is not another store in the Atlanta area (that I know of) that even comes close to matching it. The problem, however, is that the people who work there look upon customers with contempt. They act completely put out if you have the audacity to ask them anything, or even if you disturb them to check out. It's as if you are a vile worm that they must tolerate, but they let you know that you are barely tolerable with the way they look at you and speak to you. I would love to never go back there again if there was any competition at all, but there are just some things you can't get anywhere else. Pros: great selection of comics, games, manga, action figures Cons: The people working there HATE you more

One of the best 5/20/2009

Kind of like the Godfather of Atlanta comics. I still Oxford itself, getting books at the same place as my comics was cool. Huge graphic novel section. I just don't make the drive into the area that much anymore, or I'd still be there every other week. Pros: Selection of comics is huge, lots of ""out there"" comics Cons: Parking, I don't live in town more

The old standy of Atlanta comics 5/11/2009

Oxford has everything you want, and several things you didn't know you wanted yet. They've got an excellent selection of comics, back issues, graphic novels and tpbs, action figures, plushes, imports, dvds, anime, and of course, adult-oriented-material. Seriously, the store has everything, and you could spend an hour just browsing. Getting help to find something can be a gamble, though. Depending on who you get that day, it could be anywhere from helpful to dismissive to someone you'd swear wandered in to the shop in a purple haze and isn't sure why you're talking to them. *shrug* Chalk it up to local color, I guess. Bonus points for being where Jennie Breeden of The Devil's P@nties (sorry, Cityserach found the word offensive) webcomic used to work. Pros: Excellent selection of comics and more Cons: Employees tend to be disineterested or too cool to help more

Lots of stuff except friendliness 2/24/2009

Sure I go here when I here of a sale, or I've given up trying to find things elsewhere, but i definatly don't go for the great service, I hads a pull list with them once but they acted so put out if you needed help, or just wanted to chat that I canceled it and went to Teahouse in Sandy Springs.. They are new and may not have the selection, but they sure do make you feel appreciated, and that's what matters. Pros: Selection, and adult comics Cons: customer service, no bags, somewhat disorganized more

A good comic shop for someone looking for it! 11/10/2008

This place has a good selection. I live on the southside of town where the comicbook stores have everything wrapped in plastic bags. Not all of us want to read and not pay, not all of us want to mess up a good book either. They have a solid selection of new stuff as well as back order. I pretty much go here to fill my want list needs. I wish the stores near me could see that they can be a comic book shop even if they let the customers view the books before they purchase them. This place is a breath of fresh air for me. They have really good hours as well. Sunday up to 7pm I can still buy comics? That is great! Pros: No plastic on the comics Cons: Wish they had a location on the south side more

This shop will bring the nerd out in anyone! 9/16/2008

Oxford Comics is a cool little store with TONS of merchandise available! They have everything: comic books, collectible action figures, posters, clothing, gift certificates, etc. Even the coolest person can spend a ton of time in this place without getting bored. The staff is very helpful. more

Diversity in Comics 7/13/2008

What sets Oxford Comics apart from other comic stores in Atlanta is not their posters, DVDs, toys, etc. (I'd prefer those weren't associated with comics to be honest), but their vast selection of comics mainstream and indie. Places like Titan comics might have a an Image book or two, or a dark horse book if you're lucky. Oxford is the only store in Atlanta that carries the indie stuff. The staff can be kinda gruff, but most of 'em are nice. Besides, you shouldn't really need help. It's very well organized. more

Other Comic Shops are Better 3/26/2008

Yes this store has almost anything that you can imagine ever wanting in a comic shop, from a huge comic selection, back issues, comic memorabilia, toys, posters, t-shirts, statues, etc, etc, etc... but every time that I have been there, and I have been there a lot. And still go for something that may be hard to find other places. But every time I have been there the staff are not friendly at all. They never speak to you, when you ask for help they act like you are placing them at an inconvenience. They will help but they seem mad that you asked them for help. Another minus is discounts, other stores will give you a discount if you have a hold list with them and buy a certain amount each month. Other stores like Titan Comics give you up to a 20% discount plus free bags for your comics. Oxford will only give you 10%. And with the online comic business coming up with discounts up to 40% plus free bags and boards, and free shipping, on line stores like ComicSupply dot com are becoming more popular. If stores like Oxford don't start appreciating their customers, people will go other places to get their fix on comics and comic related items. Pros: Great selection Cons: Horrible Customer Service more

Best Comic Store in ATL 1/16/2007

This is by far the best comic book store in the ATL area. I shop at Oxford on a weekly basis and the staff is GREAT. The environment is very friendly and organized, the prices are also very fair. If you're looking for a great small business, this is it. more

You would be a fool to shop for comic's anywhere else! 10/23/2006

The shop has everything; atmosphere, collectibles, old comics, new comics, toys, American videos, Japanese videos. It's also a very well organized store which is a rarity when it comes to comic shops. You must shop here! Pros: The store Cons: Parking more

Biggest selection 10/4/2005

the key word with oxford is diversity. Videos, comics, action figures, they have it all. If its avalible, they have it or can track it down. Reasonable prices and a great atmosphere make it a wonderful place to shop. more

comics and more 8/7/2005

Oxford is the end all for any comic book lover. They have every type of comic you could want. This place also has memorabilia that ranges from posters to collectibles. I love buying my t shirts here because everyone always wonders where I get the coolest tees. I suggest going on Wednesday when the new stock arrives. more
