Since the 1960's, Mendel's has been in the Haight on a mission to fulfill the creative needs of our customers.
We have our own ever changing mix of bits and pieces for you to make the vision in your head a reality. Rather than sell you a finished piece of artwork, we have the things you need to create your own bit of art. Everyone is creative in their own way. You just have to find the medium or technique that opens that creative door.
Our artist services staff are trained in photography, printmaking, sculpture or painting and have years of combined experience working collaboratively with artists to produce something more than a reproduction. The digital imagers and printmakers at Electric Works can tackle any project: from initial design, to color correction; from typography to book printing; from photography to woodblock printing, there is no project beyond our scope. We offer full design services for artists looking to make a single print all the way up to a multi-hundred page fine art book. Through the years we have found that this atmosphere of collaboration creates lasting bond between our team and our clients.
The photographic services are unparalleled in the Bay Area. We custom built a reflectionless 15' by 20' professional grade photographic studio capable of working with just about any size artwork. Sculpture, flat artwork, collaborative projects and on-location collection archiving are just some of the services we offer. We bring the very best digital fine art documentation to artists, collectors, galleries and museums with the need to preserve, record and document.
STUDIO Gallery features work from local artists. We hang a new show every 3-4 weeks; shows alternate between solo shows with work from just one artist to huge group shows with work from over 100 local artists. Many of our shows have a local slant, and we always have a good selection of artwork featuring the Bay Area. Because we show both emerging and mid-career artists, we have work at a variety of price points.

Amazing Fantasy sells comic books.
That’s a lot of it and that only took 5 words. But nothing is ever that simple, and nothing fun and interesting can be described in 5 words, so we’re going to add to the above description. To borrow the borrowed words of Stan Lee, “Read on MacDuff!”
Amazing Fantasy sells more than comic books.
Here’s a partial list of the other things we sell: trade hardcovers, trade paperbacks, comic strip anthologies, magazines, toys (new and vintage), tshirts, statues, and preservation supplies (comic bags, boards, boxes, etc.).

At Amazing Fantasy, there is no above-it-all clerk that treats you like the village idiot when you buy a favorite book that he doesn’t approve of. Amazing Fantasy is not like that. And none of the Amazing Fantasy clerks look, sound, or pontificate like the comic book store guy in The Simpsons. (Although we might imitate that guy once in a while just for fun.)
