This past weekend the Alternative Press Expo was held in San Francisco, California. APE features a wide variety of creators, from those who work through independent publishing houses and others who print off their comics at the local copy shop and hand assemble each and every issue.
This years show, from all outward appearances, seems to have been the most well attended yet. Crowds on Saturday were so thick that it became hard to walk through the convention floor at the Herbst Pavilion at Fort Mason, something this reporter hasn't experienced at an APE show before. Whereas last years dreary weather may have precluded attendance by some, this year the weather was perfect both Saturday and Sunday.
Below is a small sampling of the many creators in attendance this year at APE. Visit the links below the images to learn more about each publisher or creator.
