When I lived in Oakland I tried to make it to Comic Relief at least once a month. It was on University then, but they moved around the corner to Shattuck. I've been to most of the comic shops in Northern California and Comic Relief is likely the best for what seek ye. I even got a Doofus (Rick Altergott) shirt there once.
In SF, I like Comix Experience on Divisadero. Bonus points for the guy that works there who looks like he plays in Type O Negative.
The staff in both shops is very friendly and helpful.
And Kayo Books is one of the best bookstores of its kind anywhere. Famously loved by the likes of John Waters and Richard Price. Drinks at the Owl Tree afterwards.
tet68 - The Magazine on Larkin is your one stop shop for vintage magazines of all shapes and varieties. I especially like the "7ts" swinger zines and the boxes of "erotic" and "non-erotic" found photos.
And Little Saigon a mere two blocks south...
