Isotope Takes Home The Gold
"2006's Best Comic Book Store"

Famous the world over for offering the best independent reporting of news, culture, arts, and entertainment the SF Bay Guardian also honors the city's best with their annual Best of the Bay awards for the past 32 years. We here at the Isotope know that in a city as diverse and great as San Francisco is it's a huge honor to be chosen by the Guardian's readers as the cream of the crop.

We couldn't be happier to see so many of our personal favorites like Sauce winning for both "Best New Restaurant" and "Best Appetizer," the hard rocking ladies from AC/Dshe taking home the much-deserved gold for "Best Cover Band," Michelle Tea being awarded "Best Local Author", Al's Comics being bestowed with the "Kiss My Comics Ass, I'm Moving" award, our friends at AIT-PlanetLar bringing home the "Best Local Publishing House" gold, Annie's Social Club being recognized for "Best Return to Rock & Roll Roots," and the Isotope's own Hayes Valley being awarded "Best Neighborhood!"

Thanks again to the Guardian for the very kind words, and to the SF Bay Area for all the love!
