Hey geeks! Sorry it took me so long to post about my adventure at the APE last weekend, I’ve been spending the week communing with my four-legged friends like usual and am just now getting some time to write about my experience. Well sadly it wasn’t NYCC, but while I was a little jealous of my villanous counterparts on the east coast, it was a whole new experience for a comic-virgin like myself. You see, the APE stands for The Alternative Press Expo, and it originated 20 years ago when some comic-officionados by the name of Dave Sim and Dan Vado decided to host a convention for smaller, independent publishers to get away from the DC and Marvel dominated regular comic-cons. Their creation caught on with writers, artists, and publishers, and now for 20 years the APE has been one of the leading indie comic events every year.
