Here’s what we saw on our first day of the Alternative Press Expo 2011, at the San Francisco Concourse:
The grand entrance to the San Francisco Concourse
The main hall at APE
More of the main hall.
The NPC Comics table at APE 2011
A long view of the NPC Comics table, and the floor at APE
APE is such a friendly place that you can even add your own art to it!
Sage advice found at one of the tables.
Hmm... perhaps you should consider joining a different denomination
Mom? What have you been doing?!
Not quite Churchillian, but I still appreciate the thought.
When I said I wanted to find some Chicks at APE, that's not exactly what I meant
Va va voom! Now that's more like it!
And another one - a cute girl in a cute dress patrolling the con floor
Very noticeable - there were a lot of iPads being used as digital artwork displays on the con floor. I spotted at least a couple dozen of them in use this year, whereas last year, I counted exactly one.
Also noticeable - a table offering free cupcakes! That's definitely the right way to attract an audience!
One of the more colorful tables at APE this year!
