Great Escape has the largest selection of collectible comics that I have seen in Marietta. I've been a subscriber there for nearly 20 years and I like getting a discount off of my weekly new comics purchase. The savings for me adds up to hundreds of dollars a year. They're happy to do special orders and carry rpg's, card games, and miniatures as well. Their toy selection is a little light, but that's probably because comics and graphic novels fill the walls everywhere you look.

The guy at the counter never got up or said anything to me while I was there. The selection was much smaller than I thought; they don't have many good back issues, and their new comic selection is small with very few independent titles on the shelves. Hardly any games, but that's not as important to me as the comic books.

I don't live very close to the store but I make a point of driving here to get my weekly fix of comics. They carry all of the titles from all of the major publishers, so you typically don't have to worry about something selling out. They carry a large selection of graphic novels and back issues too and also have an area dedicated to younger readers.

They have an okay selection of new stuff but not much back issues. The guy behind the counter never says anything when I go in. I don't think he's the owner because I think I've seen him on some Wednesdays when I go in and he tries to be more helpful. It's an okay shop but not the best in Marietta.

It still astounds me how much selection they manage to pack into such a small store. New comics, back issues, GNs, RPG books and a small selection of statues. Best of all, if you're looking for a recent issue you've missed, chances are they've still got it on the shelf at cover price. No bags for new issues, though.

Pros: Great selection, helpful employees

Cons: Too small, too far (for me)

The service is outstanding! The selection is second to none! Their subscription service is the best in the biz!
Great Escapes has just become my regular weekly comic shop!!

I've been shopping in comic book stores for over 20 years and no other store has impressed me more. Everything is nicely organized and clean. There are literally hundreds of new comics titles lining the walls along with 1000's of graphic novels and manga books. For the discerning collector looking for back issues, no store in Atlanta does a better job of stocking comics from the 1940's to the present -- and best of all, their prices seem reasonable. The main reason I like to shop here, though, is the service. They really take care of their customers and make you feel welcome. A first class operation all the way.

I had never been in a comic book store before and didn't know what to expect. I was trying to find something specific for a gift and had no idea where to start. The staff was very professional and helpful and knew exactly what I was talking about, even though I didn't. I found what I needed and made my collector friend very happy on his birthday! It was a great experience.
