HAPPY APES

We had a super great time at APE this past weekend! We hung out with our excellent friends, sold some comics, bought even more new ones and met lots of cool people (Shu and Makiko, Jason, Jen Wang, Steven, the other Derek, Martin from Giant Robot, and Vale got chatted up by us). But, the best of all was tabling with such a fucking talented and chill group of kids.

THE BANG GANG in FULL EFFECT:


back, L-R: Derek, Hellen
front, L-R: Anthony, Ryan, Evan


We definitely are planning to keep this little group going-- more shows, more hanging out and maybe a Zine in the works?

I've heard those Mexican sex comics are the shit.

Anthony Ha said...

The cover to "Hard Gay Comics" is surprisingly tender. Yay!

Hexxenn: The images in that imp are fucking gnarly and awesome. I hear that Bobby Fischer was a HUGE collector of mexican "historietas"

acha: You saw Shu in person-- a tiny and cute dude... who knew what SICK, GAY ALIEN fantasies he had rolling around in his mind?!
