Fall into APE 2010!

The cool, crisp weather of fall is right around the corner and so is APE, the Alternative Press Expo! The popular indie and alternative comics show has become a must-attend event on the comics convention calendar. The fall show is in the final stages of planning and APE 2010 features an incredible line-up of special guests plus a giant Exhibit Hall, which is bigger than ever.

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.

APE's 2010 confirmed special guests are Lynda Barry (writer/artist, What It Is, Picture This: The Near-Sighted Monkey Book), Daniel Clowes (writer/artist, Ghost World, Wilson), Renée French (writer/artist, The Soap Lady, H Day), Megan Kelso (writer/artist, Artichoke Tales, The Squirrel Mother), Rich Koslowski (writer/artist, The 3 Geeks, BB Wolf and the Three LPs), Tommy Kovac (writer/artist, Stitch; writer, The Royal Historian of Oz), and Tony Millionaire (writer/artist, Maakies, Sock Monkey). Click here for more info on our special guests!

In addition to the Exhibit Hall, APE features two full days of programming, including special spotlight panels on the special guests and other indy comics panels. Your membership badge ($10.00/single day, $15.00/both days) gets you access to these great events (space permitting). Memberships are available only onsite.
