Speaking of Vasquez, he’ll also be a jest at the revamped APE taking placed in San Jose this October. A preliminary guest list and exhibitor list has just been posted along with some info fromSLG/APE main man Dan Vado:
SLG Publishing released an initial list of exhibitors attending the 2015 Alternative Press Expo (APE) which will be held October 3-4 in San Jose, CA.
”This has been a pretty big undertaking” said Dan Vado, president and publisher of SLG Publishing, who is running APE this year “It’s been a long time since I ran a convention, so it is taking me some time to sort of re-learn some stuff and devise systems to try and help things run smoothly, or smoother as I expect to have a sort of bumpy ride at first.”
This list is not complete, and the exhibit hall is not sold-out, so people still wanting to jump in can do so by registering at the APE website (www.alternativepressexpo.com).
SLG also announced that hotel room blocks for exhibitors, or for anyone wishing to attend over the weekend, were still open and pointed out that the deal being offered by the San Jose Marriott was an amazingly great bargain.
Tentative guests for the 2015 APE include Jhonen Vasquez, Barron Storey and Amit Tayal (courtesy of Super Sikh Comics).
Another highlight of the 2015 APE will be the attention paid to educators and librarians as any credentialed teacher will be admitted to the 2015 event for free. Programing of a professional development nature is being planned.
