Comix Experience, 305 Divisadero Street in San Francisco, is promoting a massive sale for Sunday, October 13. According to the flyer posted by shop owner Brian Hibbs on Savage Critic he’ll have “hundreds of graphic novels at a fraction of the price” and “scores of boxes of comics and magazines from our back room.” Items will be “priced by the pound.” The sale will run from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and is in conjunction with the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Passport 2013 event (Clarification: As Brian Hibbs notes in the comments you don’t need to sign up for Passport to take part in the sale).
If you’re a fan of supporting independent artists, and if you’re in town for the Alternative Press Expo it’s safe to assume you are, Passport is definitely something you’ll want to consider checking out. Description below:
This unique event allows the public a hands-on art collecting experience by bringing local artists to neighborhood venues where the buyers can “create” a limited-edition artist’s book by collecting original, artist-designed stamps in a customized Moleskine “passport” notebook. Walking throughout the Divisadero corridor from noon to 4 p.m., hundreds of do-it-yourself art collectors will follow a designated route to collect stamps from hot local artists while discovering the small businesses that line the neighborhood.
