Tucked away on a sleepy block in Boyle Heights, inside of what is, by all-appearances, an unassuming store-front next to a bus station, is Siete, one of the most thrilling zine, comic and bookshops in the Los Angeles area. Behind shelves of perfumes and coffee makers, a tiny corner store opens up into an expansive collection of smart science fiction (Herbert, Dick, Butler, etc.) hard-to-find art comics and zines from local LA artists and writers mixed among zines from all across the country. Seite is the kind of shop that every zine maker wishes they had on their block growing up.

There are not so many bookstores in the hood making this space such a gem. It is not your usual bookstore. It is very well curated and while small you could stay for awhile looking through the stacks. Love that they also feature local zines.
