APE runs amuck in the city

The Alternative Press Expo (APE), the little indie sibling of Wondercon and Comic Con, makes it's way back to San Francisco's Concourse this Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1-2.

APE is one of the largest gatherings of alternative and indie comics in the country, with exhibitors ranging from self-published writers/artists of smaller comics to larger, upscale publishers like SLG Publishing, Top Shelf, Drawn and Quarterly, and more.

The selection of comics, graphic novels, art work, 'zines, and other knick-knacks is endless. Watch your wallets, attendees.

Membership is available on-site only. One day membership is $10 (good for either day) and two day membership is $15. For those who present their Comic Con badges from this year get in for free -- see, that $70 (or $300+ you shelled out on eBay) you spent paid off. Huzzah! Comic retailers with legit business cards also get free membership.

For more information on special guests, exhibitors, etc., check out the site.
