Artifex is the best place in the world to buy your comics, cards, and games.sure one workers can be crazy and make a LOT of stupid sounds.....but cut him some slack he has to deal with a kid that keeps wanting to make a new magic deck. i know this kid very well. The owner is very nice and puts great prices on everything he sells. They always have a tournament for card games. in a nut shell Artifex is a great place to go and have fun!!!!!!

If you are looking for the latest issues of the hottest comics, cool collectables, or a place to play your favorite tabletop games, Artifex is the place to be.

Pros: Weekly tournaments, great crowd, great service..

Cons: Multiple events running at once causes overcrowding.

Artifex has earned a reputation for being the spot to play Magic. It has some of the best players in So Cal, definitely in San Diego. Although these players can be a little intimidating, they are not retarded just because they are adults and play Magic the Gathering. C'mon, get real........these are people, usually more than half are in the military, playing card games. That's definitely not a retarded act, such as the previous review!!!! When I shop at Artifex, it's usually clean, the employees are okay, not rude, and they are helpful, although sometimes you have to get their attention because the store is busy. Busy is a good thing, it means Artifex is doing something right in this crappy economy. The store is also really busy on Sats because of it's tournaments, and it attracts lots of kids and adults. New comic days are well stocked, I've never gone in and found any of my pull missing or damaged. This store is nice to go to because it's family friendly, and the employees and owners go the extra step if you have any trouble finding anything!

Pros: Location, Low Prices, Employees

Cons: Crowded on SAT

They are a great place to buy cards at and to buy comics at because if you buy like 6 you get a 20% discount and the single cards of magic,WoW, pokemon, etc. are very very cheap, better than anything you will find on the internet( other than ebay) they hold competitions all the time !!! which are great fun.
they have sodas, energy drinks, candy, and chips so if you don't like that stuff ( like me) go find food elsewhere before you come to one of their competitions.
this place s pretty good but always very crowded. has a variety of ages, but cmon this place is really for kids, cards are for kids, etc. so the adults there are kind of strange ( but not like serial killers or perverts, just strange or retarded)
ummm the people who work there are their major fault. they are very difficult to work with. they randomly yell. alot of them seem retarded. and they are definitely not helpful at all. don't try to sell your comics or cards there, please go somewhere else!!!
they also sell trading figures, action figures, etc.

Pros
competitions
cheap prices
always alot of people around
soda chips candy energy drinks water

Cons
very bad employees
strange crowd
only soda chips candy water

The owner on the phone told me to come down and he would check out some comics and when I got there he basically just wanted me in his store and had no intention of buying my comics. I asked 3 times on the phone if he buys them and he said yes. He is not a good businessman , doesn't keep public happy!!!!I wasted 2 hours in driving for nothing!!Maybe next time he can be truthful to someone else.

If you are looking for a lot of back issues or trades, this is the wrong place. However, if you have them pull at least six issues for you every month, they give you a twenty percent discount on anything that you buy there. Best discount deal that I've found without using the internet. New issues are always stocked and on time.

The owner's name is Jim, this place sells tons of comics, sports cards, all kinds of stuff. They have a comic subscription service where you can get all your monthly comics set aside for you. Also if you're into MTG they have tournaments every Sunday, Tuesday and Friday. So check it out if you're a true magic playa and you think you can hang with the true pros.

PROS: magic tournaments
CONS: little kids hanging around buying pokemon cards

Artifex has something for everyone. If you enjoy san diego's comicon convention, this is your store. They carry endless comic books, rare old to newer ones, but you're bound to find something you enjoy here. they buy used games andconsoles so you can get rid of stuff around the house which is great. They always have card game tournaments which fill the store with fans. Everything they offer is at a decent price but the store is somewhat small and messy.

Having been to several comic book stores in San diego, this one was fairly crowded and seemed to have a lot of trading cards. It seemed to me there was a Magic/Digimon tournament going on since a lot of people were seated on the benches in the store with some occassionally screaming "I WON, I WON" to the staff. Besides the screaming (which was distracting to my comic experience), the comics were of the older variety-- they didn't seem to have a lot of the newer comic books. They sell beverages there too so I guess if you get thirsty playing Digimon, you can buy one. The place seemed disorganized so if you're looking for something in particular, better to call beforehand than just stop by and look yourself.
