To my delight, Oxford Comics was precisely how I remembered it, right down to the musty book smell and racks of comic books, magazines, and action figures crammed into every nook available. I filled my pull list, picked up an adorable Harley Quinn figure as a bonus, and may or may not have inappropriately fondled their copy of the Deadpool Omnibus (seriously, stop judging me).

The only thing we did not find anywhere in Oxford was Neil Gaiman's 'Sandman Overture'. Since Jenn wanted to pick up an alternate copy of #2 with the cover art that matched her copies of #1 and #3, we decided to head just outside of Atlanta proper to Teahouse Comics in Sandy Springs.
|Like most comic shops we're used to, this one's in a strip mall.|
|Look at those paws! Look at them!|
|Soon, my pretty. Sooooon...|
Thus ended our little field trip. So, do you guys also try to seek out foreign comic shops when you're traveling? Where is your favorite, and what are some of the things you look for in a comic shop?
