As always, we had a swell time at the Alternative Press Expo this year.
We had a lovely selection of books and comics on display.
This little guy was stowed away with the Cathy Malkasian books as we were unpacking on Saturday morning. Enjoy your new San Francisco home!
This Saturday shopper was sporting a splendid Floyd Gottfredson Mickey Mouse shirt and was very excited to hear about our upcoming reprint series! Thanks for spreading the word, nice man whose name I never found out!
Megan Kelso attracted an avid group of fans to her signing following her spotlight panel on Saturday. We sold the last copies of Artichoke Tales and The Squirrel Mother to the last fan at the very end of her signing on Sunday — uncanny! That's our own always-engaging and effervescent Janice Headley behind Megan in the second picture.
Two more views of our table as the fans peruse our selections.
Next, Dan stopped by our table to say hi to Megan.
Tony Millionaire time! Tony was congenial and voluble as always, much to the delight of his many fans.
Tony points out future Eisner winner Billy Hazelnuts and the Crazy Bird to awards administrator Jackie Estrada.
Saturday we sold out of Tony's latest book Little Maakies on the Prairie but on Sunday we still had enough of the Billy Hazelnuts books to keep fans happy, and there was beer to keep Tony happy.

That about wraps it up. Thanks to everybody who came by the table, all the helpful APE staff and volunteers, all our exhibitor pals and neighbors, and especially to Megan and Tony for making it a great show! See you again next year, APEketeers.
