i think it’s as hard to be a comic book artist as much as it is to be a comic book shop owner. there’s something that keep us all going on and it’s the love for comics. yesterday i heard the news that Comic Relief in Berkeley was closed. and i know that my buddy Al was struggling to pay the rent on market st, and man, it’s expensive to have whatever place in san francisco. it’s outta hand! He has the shop for 21 years already and now there’s a risk of losing it.
anyway, what i’m trying to say is GO TO AL’S COMICS TODAY AND BUY COMICS! he’s having a big sale and he has a bunch of real sweet comics there. i don’t know much about super heroes comics but i guarantee that he has fantagraphics classics and rarities. r.crumb, dan clowes, peter bagge (i even found there the 7″ from the Action Suits aka Peter Bagge’s band).
al is the first friend i made in san francisco. he rules!! please support :)
