A few weeks ago Budd and I made a daytrip out to Athens, GA. Athens is an eclectic college town that centers around the University of Georgia. When people ask me where I’m from I generally tell them that I’m from Athens. Which is technically true! ( I was born there, have always lived about an hour or less away from the town, I have family in the area, and it’s where I attended college.)
For me one of the best parts of Athens is it’s one and only comic shop: “Bizarro Wuxtry”. The “ordinary” Wuxtry downstairs is chock full of vinyls and CDs, which is great in its own right, but the real gold mine for us is “Bizarro Wuxtry,” its neighbor upstairs, a haven for comics, magazines, and collectibles.
It’s a charmingly messy gold mine of nerdy treasures ( like your cool uncle’s basement.) My one recommendation is to not go in there looking for something in particular. Just browse at your leisure and see what hidden gems you’ll stumble upon.
