Leef Smith, owner of Mission: Comics and Art

Mission: Comics and Art has a special little place in my heart. When I ran for mayor in 2015, Leef Smith, the shop’s owner, not only volunteered for my campaign but also let us use his comic book shop as our unofficial headquarters. How cool is it that? So it saddened me when I heard that the shop might be facing closure.

We all know that in 2018, it’s hard to be in the book business. Then consider how niche comic books are and couple that with the fact that running and independent business in San Francisco is freakishly expensive. You can see the dilemma. The issue is that Mission Comics is more than just a comic book store, it’s a place where the community gathers. From art shows to meet-ups to events, Mission: Comics and Art is a vital part of what makes the Mission such a vibrant neighborhood. Whenever I’m there I always love seeing peoples’ faces light up when they walk in and see all the wonderful comics and toys. And that’s why Mission: Comics and Art has launched a Patreon page.

This Patreon page will give people the ability  to support Mission Comics in a way that matches the value that it has added to their lives. So if you love Mission Comics, or even just like knowing that there’s a place to buy comic books in the Mission, please go here and support them. They’ve got some really rad prizes for those who do.

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
