Great customer service, great people. Great location. I really enjoy this store. If you can not find a title the staff there will go out of their way to look for it and if needed order it for you. The staff is super friendly and makes

A&M Comics has been around for at least 30 years. \r

I was very disappointed in this comic book store. It was my very first time and it will be the last time I will go there. The guy who was running the store at this day didn't bother to check my comic books which I was trying to sell didn't look at the comic books itself to see what condition it was. I was extremely upset how he treated me like I was a complete nobody. I am sorry I don't keep up with keeping my comic books in extreme mint condition, but just look at it completely and tell me if I can get a few dollars of it. I am not asking for top price at all. I read some reviews that it was cluttered and disorganized and I will take their word for it. If you looking for a great comic book store, it won't be this one at all. I am sorry if I disappoint some people out here, but that is how I feel about this place and they are so lucky they stay in this area for the longest time. If this stays open for another decade, I will be shocked.

Business Response:

I am sorry you were disappointed, but if you call the store we tell everyone what comics we look for. As a business I can not sit with someone all day and tell them if it's worth something or not. We have appraisal services but it's mostly for insurance claim purposes, and most people looking to sell their comics don't want to pay someone to tell them what it's worth. Also, with any collectible, condition is everything and if we looked at something that quick and said we didn't want it, that means they were no long a collectible due to condition.
.

If you really LOVE comics in all of their mad, silly, 4-color magic, as I have for 40 years now, and especially if you're a collector, you would happily cross an alligator-filled, land mine spiked swamp to find a really excellent stash. OK, maybe I exaggerate a little. My point is, these people writing in about the store's appearance and tidiness should maybe leave their white gloves at home, if it's comics you are after and not a sanitation certificate.

I found Xavier (the "staff" I met) to be both personable and helpful. (Hey, he loves Daredevil! How bad can he be?) And the owner, Jorge, has been approachable, generous with his time and advice, and a fair dealer.

So yes, the place definitely needs a housekeeper. But to me, the bottom line is whether or not the books have been taken care of. Condition is king in today??s market, for better or worse, and I care much more about what??s in the mylar sleeves than whatever might be on the floor. That is why I am there, and the reason I go back.

If you??re ready to leave your white gloves at home, check it out. Make up your own mind.

Pros: Inventory, Great Variety, Human Touch

Cons: Lack of Thought in Display, Could be ""Cleaned up"

That review below was written by a friend of mac's comics. I've been going to a&m for years! It was voted one of the best comic shops. Google it! Yes it may be messy but it has the largest back issue selection in all of Miami!!! What do you want? The place has over 100,000 back issues. That's about 75,000 more than its closest compo!!!

This place got to be the worst comic book store ever, its so disorganized and you going to get very little help and lots of heavy lifting. The guy guess the prices to see how much he can get out of you. He's a slob. It's a cluster mess of a store and it smells like weed and theirs fast food junk all over the store. I found a bk wrapper while looking for a comic. gross. If you want a good comic shop, go to Mac's comics which is pretty near on Coral in 87. They offer discounts and the place is clean and organized.

You must be a Mac's regular. Unfortunately since we have so much inventory and purchase so much, it takes some time to catalog it all. We might be disorganized but if you ask for anything we bend over backwards to help everyone. As for lifting boxes, again if you had asked for assistance as a customer you wouldn't have to move anything. There is no fast food junk anywhere because we have trash cans, or you must have come in the middle of our lunch. Since we don't leave or close the store during our printed hours of operation, and we never close on a day it says we're open. A&M also gives any customer who gets regular comics a flat discount, not one based on cash or credit. The smell in the store is incense which we have because of the old comic smell some people don't like and the prices are retail prices which we don't make up because most items in the store have their price on them.

Of all the comic stores I been too. This place is the worst. It's hard to find everything there and the people are less than helpful. I would ask for where a comic is, and most of the time, I just get pointed to where a bunch of boxes are with no help. There's fast food items all over the places and I even found a burger wrapper while searching through a comic box. Disgusting!!!. Most of the comics aren't prices on fairly considering how most of them aren't really taken care of and these people never heard of the dollar bin that most good stores have. I can see why this is the oldest comic store, the age shows and it's a fire hazard too. Mac's and comics and anime is the best in terms of helpful people, everything in place and a better shopping experience. A & M just has hard to find stuff, that's it. I feel like i have to wash my hands throughly once done shopping. That store didn't improve in age for obvious reasons. The guy there annoying and oh yeah, he cares if you put the comics in the right order yet, the whole store is one big mess. I would take it putting the comics where they belong seriously if the store is clean, organized. You know what, its obvious they don't care because they are 1 of the few comics store in the area. By far, Mac's is much better and the best of the kendall area. Go there rather than that disaster of a comic shop.

Pros: Hard to find items, if you lucky, you might find something decently priced, new comics on time.

Cons: annoying retailer, smells, glutter mess, fast food wrappers and items all over, there's inapporiate material for a comic shop for children. poor customer service, hard to access items.

Store has about 30 years worth of comics and memorabilia, Almost anything imaginable, prices are reasonable, this is definately the place to spend some time in and find some great items. Its a bit messy since it its packed front to back with merch, which to me is great since im tired of walking into shops around Miami that have like 100 items in inventory, and parking can be a pain, but well worth taking an hour and shopping there.

This has got to be the filthiest store I was ever in. The store smelled as if a sewer pipe had exploded in there. The guy in charge was very obnoxious and looked like he had not had a bath in a month. I will never go there again and it is a wonder the fire marshal lets it stay open. It is a disaster waiting to happen.

This store has wide sellection of comic books,even very old one.The organization of the huge amount of stock is very good..I see that this store is located on an old little corner ,that have other antique shops that look somehow deteriorated and probaly take away from the look of the place.The employees seemed very young and knowlegeable about comic collecting.It is a MUST SEE place for the serious comic collector.

They have a lot of nice stuff. If you like comics or figurines you need to check this place out. They are priced the same as most comic shops, but I think they have more to offer. And the staff is pretty knowledgeable about what they sell. Give them a visit, you'll stay longer then you planned.

Really good selection. They have comics, dvds, figurines. If there is something anime that you have been looking for this is a great place to get it. All comic stores are usually a bit expensive and this one is no exception. To make up for that, you will be happy when you find the things that are rare that you really are looking for. This place has a lot, you will even find goodies that were not expecting.

PROS: Selection is great
CONS: price
