have a memory or condolence to add?


April 7, 2021

Mike's comic shop was an integral part of Oxford Book Store at Peachtree Battle shopping center in Atlanta for a number of years. He started selling comics at a very early age, around 12, showing a keen business sense from the beginning. He connected naturally with his many customers and stayed up on the latest trends in the ever changing world of comics. He will be missed very much by all those from his Oxford Book Store days and his many customers who frequented his Oxford Comic Shop.

I first met Mike in the 1990s and saw him at odd intervals throughout the years thereafter. Each visit with him was a treat. We had much in common, in particular, comics, and I so much enjoyed all the conversations I had with him, about that subject and many others. I mourn his passing and the fact those meetings are at an end. My consolation to his loved ones. On a personal note, my father passed away on April 1. It is a cruel date, but then, "April is the cruelest month."
