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!

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 - 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.

Saturday night will definitely go down as one of the most memorable events in the history of Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery thanks to Ardent Vein's incredible performance/reading of Chapter 1 of Johnny's Prison Pit Book 1. If you weren't one of the lucky people who witnessed it in person, behold, we've put it on YouTube in two parts!
