    The metro Atlanta area is rife with comic book shops, both old and relatively new, but when it comes to sheer selection and diversity of products, OXFORD COMICS is the leader of the pack. Pop in the shop on any day of the week, and you’ll see for yourself: tons of brand-new comics from mainstream and indie publishers, old-school back issues, trade paperbacks and hardcover graphic novels, hard-to-find action figures, trading cards, DVDs, T-shirts, posters and even snacks. And there’s more comic-related stuff where that came from in stock for both hardcore fans and casual customers. 2855 Piedmont Road N.E. 404-233-8682. www.facebook.com/oxfordcomicsandgames. less...

    You know the universe is looking out for us when there’s a spot in ATL that has both a great draft list and a great comic book collection. MY PARENTS’ BASEMENT, tucked away in Avondale Estates, is run by comic book vets qualified to steer you in the right direction, whether you’re looking for a new series or in the market for a rare issue. Stay on top of their events as artist signings happen often, like one recently with Betty and Veronica writer and artist Adam Hughes. Peruse their collection of more than 1,000 comic books and stay for Nerd Trivia night on Tuesdays. Grab some grub — we’re partial to the shrimp taco plate and Wild Heaven brew. less...

    No comic-book store in the Atlanta area has the quantity of new titles of comics and graphic novels, or breadth of geek-centric merchandise, as the large-yet-crammed OXFORD COMICS & GAMES. The last remnant of the beloved local Oxford Book Store chain, Oxford Comics not only provides a place to pick up the week's latest sleek superhero and/or scruffy indie comics (they'll put them aside for you on request), it's also a convenient stop for, say, Hellboy lunch boxes, obscure anime movies on DVD or action figures for decorating your office space. less...

    One of the pleasures of comic book stores is spending hours rummaging through boxes of back issues, completing your collections of, say, Hellboy or Ambush Bug appearances. Atlanta has no better place for that pastime than THE COMIC COMPANY, for its voluminous selection of back issues, its spacious surroundings and convenient location near North DeKalb Mall. Plus, it smells like a true comic book store. In a good way. "1048 Mistletoe Road. 404-248-9846." less...
