Aw, APE! The Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco is happening this weekend! And I’m pretty darned excited. Lots of great special guests this year! I’m eagerly anticipating to see Lynda Barry’s new book with D+Q, as well as Renee French’s book from Picturebox. Also Dan Clowes, Tony Millionaire, Megan Kelso?!? Hello! Come on down!
And speaking of Megan Kelso, we got to interview her for the latest Comix Claptrap podcast! And comics pal, Lark Pien was the special guest host while Thien deals with his suspension. Link follows:
….Anyway I’ll be at APE on Saturday with the family walking around and attending all the panels. Sunday, I’ll be hanging out with thee Dylan Williams and the Sparkplug Comic Books crew at Table #118, signing Whirlwinds and presenting copies of my latest sketchbook zine anthology, Pet Project. In the expanded convention hall, Sparkplug will be right next to Pigeon Press who will have the latest stuff from Lisa Hanawalt and Matt Furie. Dang! What else am I missing?!? Zack Soto’s anthology Studygroup12 #4! Oh man, a new mini from Dan Zettwoch!!! New prints by Ben Catmull! Oh snap, new Mr. Elephanter by Lark Pien!! Koyama Press all the way from Toronto! I feel like my wallet is going to be empty 5 minutes into the show, so many interesting books to get this time around!
So make sure to pay a visit, should be a good time!
