A Slight Detour…

Just a few blocks away from San Francisco’s Mission Comics is Mark Bode, Stan 153, and Cuba’s tribute to Moebius in the city’s famed Clarion Alley. The mural has been up for nearly two whole years, and actually extended to the next quadrant over. The other part of the piece was painted over to make space for another mural.
