Brian Hibbs  store owner

Born in Boone County, Missouri, pre-teen years spent in Brooklyn, New York, Brian still somehow vainly believes that he's actually a San Franciscan. Must be the hair. Brian opened Comix Experience at the ridiculously young age of 21, on April Fool's Day, 1989. Brian lives with his luscious wife, Tzipora, and his son, Ben, in sunny Noe Valley.

4. Runaways
5. Solanin
6. Finder

Julie Fiveash  manager

Julie is from exceedingly sunny Yuma, AZ.  She read Calvin and Hobbes in elementary school and didn't read anything else until high school where she discovered that she'd been missing out on so many other comics!  She attended Dartmouth College where she started a comic book club that gave her the chance to rave about comics to other people.  Julie likes to draw, read, and sell comics and zines. Besides that, she takes care of her plants, one bunny, one fish, and one significant other. 

Julie's Top Ten:
1. Johnny the Homicidal Maniac
2. Scott Pilgrim
3. The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal
4. Sakana
5. Octopus Pie
6. Fullmetal Alchemist
7. King City
8. Solanin

Cameron Simmons  

Cameron was born and raised in San Francisco. Yes, he knows that’s rare. His comic lust came into being once the nostalgic exposure of the 90’s X-Men cartoon was coupled with the Civil War (Marvel, not American). He’s recovering from a Hot Pockets addiction. 

Cam's Top Ten (in no particular order):
1.   Planetary

2.   Battle Angel Alita
3.   Guardians of the Galaxy (2008 series)
4.   Ex Machina
