A small museum showcasing a few artists. Jeff Brown's Darth Vader and Friends exhibit was very cute. Savage Dragon by Erik Larson was also a nice spread with great splash pages. It is a great way to get up close to some fantastic comic pieces....More

If you're in to comics or cartoons stop by. It's a small collection but admission is cheap. You can view the collection fairly quickly if you want or take your time.

I love the cartoon drawings and videos there. Their exhibition covers a large number of different cartoons and it's very enjoyable to look through these.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter

this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
