Weekly New Comic & Graphic Novel Profiles
@ SF's Crucial Guide to Culture & Entertainment

No doubt everyone knows that here at the Isotope we're all about spreading the love of the comics to the non-comic reading world at large, so when we tell you how proud we are to announce that we're teaming up with San Francisco's cultural epicenter SFist to provide a weekly fix of the best the comic industry has to offer you'll know why the news makes us so pleased.

The SFist website, which should be one of your first stops when you fire up your computer each day, keeps a finger pressed firmly on the pulse of the city of San Francisco, an eye focused directly on local events, cutting edge politics, nightlife extravaganzas, and the kind of Bay Area people who you definitely need to get to know, and one foot in the deep-end of San Francisco living. And SFist's staff of funny, smart, friendly, damn good looking, and "in the know" writers keep readers on the razor's edge with a crucial tool for a never-ending cultural exploration of cool things to do, sexy people to know, and brilliant places to be in the city.

And now they've got comics too!

From the SFist website, written by Mattymatt:

It was a day like any other, we recall, when Isotope Comics suddenly fell into our lap -- and then, in a blur of capes and shotguns, we were off on the wildest adventure of our lives. Isotope's a swanky/friendly joint at 326 Fell (that's Hayes-Valley-ish), where comix from mainstream to obscure mingle amongst cozy chairs, original art framed by toilet seats, and strange creatures suspended in jars of fluid. It's the kind of place where you could get utterly lost in stories and never, ever be seen again. And now, thanks to the support of the Isotopians, SFist is pleased to inaugurate a brand new weekly feature, in which we'll be bringing you news of the novelly graphic in the bay area.

Click to read the full story, get the weekly schedule, update your bookmarks, and see what the SFist crew has to say about the comics we sent them home with this week... including Isotope Special Projects Director Kirsten Baldock's Smoke & Guns and Isotope regular Manny Bello's Hench!
