APE debuts sought

Reminder: if you are debuting a book at APE, please send us some info.

APE (The Alternative Press Expo), as you may be able to tell from the above flashing banner ads, will be held next weekend, Oct. 17-18, at the Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco. Special guests include Jeff Smith, Dean Haspiel, Lark Pien, Dash Shaw, Batton Lash, Phoebe Gloeckner, and Jamaica Dyer.

    APE always seems like the coolest thing ever! But it’s too far for me to attend. :(

    Mocca needs to really become something similar.

  3. ALEC!! When will they be for sale on line?

  4. Sean! They are currently available for ordering on my site (link above!)

  5. Big Head Press will be debuting (is that a word?) ODYSSEUS THE REBEL, by Steven Grant and Scott Bieser, at APE. The official release date of the book was set at October 14 so shops could get copies first and not feel slighted.

    Steven and I will both be at the show, signing books and chatting with fans and colleagues.

  6. I will be debuting my self published book JETSAM, the collected works from my Jetsam series of illustrations. Check out the book and my work at
