"From the Minutes of a Meeting of the Anti Gravity League" by Sean Chiki

From the people who brought you The Comic Book Guide to the Mission comes Sci-Fi San Francisco, an anthology of speculative fiction comics set in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each of these stories is as strange as San Francisco itself:

  • When their rent in their version of San Francisco gets too high, a couple hires an interdimensional real estate agent.
  • A cat-loving wrestler wakes up in a distant future where he becomes the champion of a race of hyper-evolved felines.
  • A team of do-gooder biotech researchers discover their technology can make people beautiful. But is their sudden financial success really a good thing?
  • A mysterious blackmailer threatens to remove people's entire digital identities. But that's impossible, right?
  • An inventor, sick of SF's transformation into a tech mecca, travels back to the city's punk rock past.
  • An interplanetary accountant travels to San Francisco to discover why no one is spending money in the city anymore.
  • In the distant future, humans have become the city's underclass, enduring the verbal abuse of wealthy robots.

Risks and challenges

Sci-Fi San Francisco is Skoda Man Press's second comics anthology. The book is complete and laid out—it just needs to go to the printer!

We're using a different printer for Sci-Fi San Francisco than we did for The Comic Book Guide to the Mission, but they come highly recommended. Of course, printing and shipping delays are always a possibility.
