Alternative Press Expo
Coming back on October 12 and 13th 2013, the 20th annual Alternative Press Expo, or APE at San Francisco Concord Exhibition Center. APE is one of the leading alternative and self-published comics events in the country originally started by Dan Vado then taken over by Comic-Con its second year. Alternative Press Expo not only has the future great comics to read but the actual artist/writer behind the table. (Just imagine meeting the next Stan Lee when he first started writing...) Filled with art, books, DYI items, speakers, special guest, hands on workshops, there is so much much more to see.
You may find your favorite comic in person or your new favorite comic character.
