Comics and zines for sale in SoHo

Remember zines? They had quite a heyday in the late 80s and 90s.

I’ve seen this place spelled Sohozat and SoHo Zat. Either way, it was a comics emporium in the late 70s and 80s on West Broadway and Grand.

The ad comes from the August 1984 issue of the East Village Eye.

    SOHOZAT was one of my favorite places in all NYC! I used to stop by there regularly, at least once a month if not more often. They were like a head shop, zine store, second hand clothing store, underground comix store…a general store for all your alternative or underground cultural needs! It was a tragedy when they closed. Now it’s a Korean market.

    In the early 80s, when I was about 12, my very straight & conventional dad would take me there to look for comics. What a fascinating place it was…and it always smelled like weed =p

    I worked here in 84. I was the guy on the ladder watching all you thieves swipe comics! I also sold Cindi Lauper all her bangles she used in “Girls Just Wanna.” Still have some Soho Zat magazines I should probably sell.

    Worked there in ’82. BEST memories – Daryl and Stan were awesome.
