create1/30/2006: Al’s Comics Moving Party

Al just signed a 1-year lease for the old Limelight Bookstore at Octavia and Market. He’ll be closed for a few days but will reopen soon! See you tonight for the celebration.


Well, Al’s lost his space and is still looking for a new one. He’s had nibbles for new space, and has gotten tremendous support from his community of customers. A slew of folks are standing by waiting to help him haul out his many boxes of books and things.

For now, Al wishes to show his appreciation by having one last gasp (pardon the pun) in his Gurrero St. (@17th St.) “joint.” Should be a scene next Monday.

Since 1989, Al’s Comics has provided San Francisco and Mission District comics fans with top-quality service, great back stock, and solid indie titles (not to mention toys, cards, and occasional oddities). I’ve been a customer and friend since 1998 and will be sad to miss my local hang-out. Please stop by and support Al if you can. Any leads on retail space in the Mission or nearby ‘hoods are appreciated.
