Mission Comics & Art "When I Was A Kid" Book Signing with Boey Friday July 26th - 6pm Meet Malaysian artist & cartoons author of the recently published “When I Was A Kid" Preview "A graphic novel without pretension, When I Was a Kid is a collection of black and white drawings and handwritten narratives that depict short stories from a kid’s formative years growing up in Malaysia — stories of surviving school, siblings, and parents — when the world was indeed, seen as simply black and white. Dedicated to the forgotten child in all of us, these tales of imaginary heroes, lies adults like to tell children, and the dangerous mix of boredom with curiosity appeal to anyone who might long for a more innocent time when, as little kids, we all had stories we promised never to tell our parents.

The Comic Outpost : We Have Issues
COMIC OUTPOST - "WE HAVE ISSUES" Dear Awesome Comic Outpost customer! I want to introduce myself to you: I’m Brian Hibbs, owner of Comix Experience (305 Divisadero St. at Page), and I will be taking over the operations of Comic Outpost, effective 12/16/2013. I’m tremendously excited – Gary is a great guy, and he’s built a really special business over the years. I look forward to helping strengthen it going forward. Comix Experience runs pretty differently from Comic Outpost, but I want to assure you that we have no intention of changing the essential nature of the Outpost. Customers dictate the kind of store that exists, and we’ll be dedicated to bringing you the same passionate and engaged love-of-comics service you’ve received from Gary over the years!
