San Francisco Zine Fest 2016

I dropped in on the 15th annual San Francisco Zine Fest this last Sunday in Golden Gate Park. It's a lively event with a lot of creative energy and lacking the corporate aura surrounding most 'comic' cons these days. The focus is on do-it-yourself print media by local Bay Area creators.

             Here's the illustrious Jaime Crespo and publisher Francis Kohler

                             Here's the equally illustrious Mark Badger

I only picked up a few items at the Fest and didn't notice until I got home the curious aquatic theme to my purchases.

A nice strange book by Anna Zusman

                                  Sea Creature Story is by Skip Wrightson

    The all-Creature of the Black Lagoon edition of Monster Nerd

But I did get a copy of David Enos' enigmatic Bat-Man is Lost in a Woods

This poster I saw at one of the booths probably best spells out the Zine Fest ethos:

  1. Thanks for the shout out! And link.

  2. Great food and great people with awesome styling and interior. Also great venues in Los Angeles for cheap happy hour drinks. However, the downstairs beer selection is about as standard as it can be while upstairs can be a bit more creative.
