Newsarama Article on APE

Run-ins at APE:
  • A Hollywood guy, one of those who meaningfully inserts, "Well, I'm from... Hollywood" into the conversation he started with you for just this purpose.
  • A guy who attended my writing workshop but nevertheless felt he needed to address my husband rather than me, even after we made it clear that I was the person he needed to talk to. Actually, he didn't need to talk to me because I was eating at the time. Also, despite spending two hours at the workshop in which I did most of the talking, he still felt that the man I happened to be with at the time obviously was the one running things. (Thanks to the several workshop attendees who stopped by the booth to say hello to me, though! I hope you had a good time at APE.)
  • Oni Press editor in chief James Lucas Jones's bountiful tresses. He's growing his hair out to donate, and now that he's passed the minimum length, he swears he'll cut it before Comic-Con.
  • Rikki Simons and two bloody rib-eye steaks.
Luckily, JK Parkin at Newsarama is here to fill in the gaps in my recollection of APE with his article about the convention. Parkin talks to publishers, like Larry Young of AIT, Brett Warnock of Top Shelf, and SLG's own Dan Vado. There's also coverage of the panels and comments from comics creators like Bryan Lee O'Malley, Hope Larsen and Gene Yang about the state of the industry and the art form.

Gene Yang's books were among our bestsellers at APE. If you weren't there to get them, you can still buy American Born Chinese, Gordon Yamamoto and the King of the Geeks and Loyola Chin and the San Peligran Order at www.slgcomic.com.
