Day 01 of The Alternative Press Expo is coming to a close and we are all tired/drunk/caffeinated/broke(n) or some combination of all of the above. APE is a great way to see the blue collar reality of comics without all the Hollywood-premiere-glitz and glam of San Diego Comic Con. APE is creators hanging out in a somewhat dingy design hall nearing the end of its life in San Francisco. And it’s fun.
APE is also San Francisco at its best – the natives come out of the woodwork and they are a great crowd looking to buy indie books – comics that often get overlooked at bigger shows – wonderful.
And for those of us that have done APE for a few years, it’s a great, often the only way to catch up with indie friends like the ladies at booth 527 with Boudika Comics and BuyIndieComics.com friend, Khalid Birdsong of FriedChickenandSushi.com.
So – that was a long winded way of saying that you should be prepping to come and say, “hi” tomorrow at Day 02 of The Alternative Press Expo. Mention this post at table 319 and get free stuff.
