Isotope Relocates to the Heart of SF
Redefining Comic Indusrty Style this July 1st

In celebration of our four year anniversary, the Isotope has announced the glorious move to a bigger, sexier, and utterly beautiful location this coming July. Over half a year in the top-secret planning stages, the Isotope staff has been scouring the city for the perfect combination of neighborhood, transportation, parking, and esthetics to bring the epicenter of comic culture to the people.

This new oversized, multi-leveled Isotope features everything the staff could have asked for in a new location... nearly three times the retail space, a central location right in the heart of SF, plenty of effortless non-metered parking, more public transportation access than we know what to do with, fourteen foot high lofted ceilings, and literally surrounded by the kind of cool small businesses that make you proud to live in the San Francisco Bay Area. All that and the new Isotope location is also very, very pretty... go ahead, see for yourself.

Located in the epicenter of cool San Francisco culture, the swank Hayes Valley neighborhood is known for one of the highest concentrations of "Best of the Bay" awarded boutiques, restaurants, designers, night spots, and specialty shops in the entire city, so there is no doubt that the Isotope's unique brand of comic retailing and culture will be a perfect fit for this stylish, hip, and rapidly growing neighborhood. Download the Isotope's Hayes Valley Neighborhood Guide for information on arriving at, parking near, and enjoying our new urban environs.
