APE or The Alternative Press Expo opens up this weekend in San Francisco. Coming back to San Francisco on October 16 and 17 at the Concourse Exhibition Center (located at 635 8th Street), APE offers comics fans an event focused on creativity and devoted to the output of indie cartoonists, artists, and publishers doing the thing they love most. With over 5,000 attendees in 2009, APE remains the premiere alternative comics and publishing show in the nation.
Be on the look out for lots of comic related goodness. Our friends Albert Reyes, Matt Furie, and Aiyana Udesen of Future Colors of America will be there selling zines, orignial art, and other goodies. Albert flew up from LA to hassle passerbys. Matt Furie will be releasing a new Boys Club comic as well.
Speaking of Matt Furie. Here he is holding Vanessa Davis new book, Make Me A Woman. Click for a look inside. Vanesa will be at this year's APE as well.
