APE 2009 day 2 pics
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Momejon vermilyeaJohn PhamFrank SantoroeventsDash Shaw 18 Oct 2009 10:54 PM

Thanks to everybody who came out to see us at the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco this weekend! As always we loved meeting fans and hanging out with our pals and colleagues. This year's gold star goes to Frank Santoro, who provided us with our best photo ops and cheerfully helped us out packing up at the end of the show. We can't wait to read your Comics Comics post about the ninja comics you bought, Frank!

APE 2009 - Dash Shaw, Frank Santoro, Jon Vermilyea
Frank flexes the muscles he'd later use packing boxes, while Dash Shaw and Jon Vermilyea look on. Note the early, un-dustjacketed copies of Dash's The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century A.D.

APE 2009 - Frank Santoro, Jon Vermilyea
Frank, Jon and Jon.

APE 2009 - John Pham
John Pham signing one of the last remaining copies of con debut/sell-out Sublife Vol. 2. That's Leigh Walton of Top Shelf's Tintin sketchbook under John's left arm there.

We sold out of Andrice Arp and T. Edward Bak's issues of Mome before their signing times, so we gave them the day off. Also, get better soon to Renee French, who had to cancel her APE-pearance (sorry, it's late) due to illness.

We have a few additional shots of both APE days over in our Flickr set, including video of Dash painting, so check 'em out if you get a chance.

It might already be Saturday where you are, but we don't want you to miss your Friday webcomics update!

Blecky Yuckerella by Johnny Ryan

I don't think the folks at Cryptomundo could ever have imagined the events of this week's Blecky Yuckerella strip by Johnny Ryan....

Chocolate Cheeks by Steven Weissman

...it's something completely different (no Yikes!) in this week's strip from Steven Weissman ("Chapter 1 of my new Graphic Novel, ha ha" says Steven)...

Rocky by Martin Kellerman

...and careers, jealousy and bad dancing are topics of our Monday-Friday Rocky strips by Martin Kellerman. Enjoy!

Cory Doctorow on THIS SIDE OF JORDAN
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Monte Schulz 16 Oct 2009 5:47 AM

Cory Doctorow praises Monte Schulz's new novel, THIS SIDE OF JORDANon BoingBoing this morning. "Did I mention how good the writing is? The writing is excellent... The setting is so vivid I felt like I could fall into the book and lose myself there, landing on some dusty road in a tourist camp where the hicks waited to be fleeced or killed by Chester," he writes.

Monte's tour takes a few days off and reconvenes next Tuesday in San Francisco:

Tues., Oct. 20, 7PM • Modern Times Books, San Francisco, CA
Wed., Oct. 21, 7PM • Copperfield's Books, Santa Rosa, CA
Thurs., Oct. 22, 7PM • Book Passage, Corte Madera, CA
Sat., Oct. 24, 2PM • The Bookseller, Mill Valley, CA
Wed., Oct. 28, 7PM • Time Tested Books, Sacramento, CA
