Alternative Press Expo


The Alternative Press Expo, affectionately known as APE, moves to the fall this year. Held once again in its home of many years, San Francisco’s Concourse (620 7th Street), APE is November 1 and 2, right after Halloween. Come to San Francisco early, and celebrate that spookiest of holidays in the beautiful city by the Bay before hitting the APE Exhibit Hall!

APE is one of the country’s largest gatherings of the best in indie comics, offering a venue for exhibitors ranging from self-publishers of minicomics to such large publishers as SLG Publishing, Fantagraphics, Drawn and Quarterly, Oni Press, Top Shelf, and many more. It offers a huge collection of some of the best indie and alternative comics material out there: graphic novels, ’zines, art books, prints, original art, and comics of every size and shape. You can’t walk through the giant APE Exhibit Hall and not be inspired to either open your wallet and buy cool stuff or go home and hunker down and create some of your own. It’s that kind of show.
