Alternative Press Expo 2012

Shang Chi and I dashed into this years Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco for a few hours on Saturday to chat up artists and grab some photos. This is the 19th APE, spotlighting the best in alternative, small press, and self-published comics. Not as crowded as a WonderCon or ComicCon, but that's a good thing. Over 400 exhibitors, indie comics publishers, artists, and DIY creators showcasing their work, each hoping for that chance at stardom, or at least to smile for the camera.
