I was able to complete a 5 issue arc in one trip. I always leave with something good, and I remember one girl that was working there who was cute. And thank Jesus these guys aren't elitist fanboys. Good selection of comics + Cute girl + No Fan boys; now I'm no mathematician, but I'm pretty sure that makes for an awesome comic shop.

Al's comics has been around since Christ walked on water. They have an incredible amount of backstock and memorabilia, and Al prices stuff to go! Al's has also moved to a larger store, Now he can really put his stock on display. CHECK out the new Al's location at 1803 market st. Thats upper market near Duboce!

Though not very big, this place is packed with stuff - new issues near the front, back issues in the rear, and graphic novels on shelves throughout. Carries both mainstream and indie comics. If you're looking for something specific, just

Al's Comics at 491 Guerrero Street (cross-street: 17th Street) in San Francisco, California is, IMHO, the best comic shop in SF. He carries every new release from the big publishers and most of the independent pubs as well. Offers a subscription service and a saver service as well (with an appropriate deposit). He has trade paperbacks, hardcovers, action figures, toys, trading cards, statues and busts, and even t-shirts and videos. Also has a healthy selection of back issues and generally leaves the last few months worth of titles at cover price even though he is hanging on by a thread these days. He still manages to greet everyone with a smile and is helpful as he can be, except on New Comics day as he is only the proprietor, but is often the lone employee as well. Stop in, you won't be disappointed. Call (415) 861-1220 for more details.

This shop has a huge selection of comics, novels, and books. Everything is well organized and categorized so it’s easy to search for what you are looking for. The service is amazing. They have old collectible comics as well as new releases! Sometimes, the shop may be considered too small with the amount stuff in one building, but I still think it is excellent place to buy comics.
