A couple of weeks ago, I went to the Flight art show reception (Great comic anthology by the way; get it if you can!) to support friend/hero Derek Kirk Kim at the Super7 store in Japantown, and I must say I’m glad I did. It’s sort of a one-stop destination for fringe-y pop culture mini-comics, t-shirts, toys, magazines, videos, and the like, most of which have a decidedly Asian slant. The fiance and I are pretty big on local indie comics, which is probably why we took an immediate shining to the place — there is no shortage of them there. Super7 also sponsors fabu events like concerts featuring Asian artists, and the upcoming Godzilla fest at the Castro Theatre.
If you’re at all interested in the local indie arts scene, indie comics, kitschy items, or Japanese pop culture, you owe it to yourself to visit the store (They even have their own blog — it’s accessible through their website).
