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.
Sci-Fi San Francisco features a cover by the inimitable Chuck Whelon and 20 black-and-white comics, featuring the work of:

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
