San Diego Comic-Con is not the only event that Comic-Con International puts on, in case you weren’t aware: of course, there’s the massively popular WonderCon event which continues to grow from strength to strength, and there is also another event taking place this year: the APE, Alternative Press Expo.
APE is an event dedicated to supporting smaller independent comics publishers and print houses, as well as home-brew self-published creators. It takes place in the gorgeous surroundings of San Francisco, it runs over the course of two days in a couple months time and, as it happens, CCI have announced that badges are now available to buy online.
If you were an attendee of SDCC back in July, you get free entry into the event – a bonus for the hardcore CCI fanatic!
“APE, the Alternative Press Expo, returns to San Francisco on October 4 and 5, at a new location: Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion. Fort Mason Center is at 2 Marina Blvd., San Francisco, CA.
