APE this weekend in San Francisco!

Just wanted to post a quick reminder that the Alternative Press Expo is going on this weekend. My lady friend and I will be going up on Saturday to meet Evan for the show. There's nobody especially exciting we wanna meet (though Adrian Tomine, Johnny Ryan and Dan Clowes seem to come every year), but hopefully we can pick up some cool indie comics, buttons or zines.

Additionally, we'll be passing out a free 16-page 'zine' we threw together last night as a promotion for this blog. It contains about 6 pages of Yoshida Sensha strips, 2 Suehiro Maruo shorts and an ad for the upcoming comic that my girlfriend and I are writing (Ok, she is doing most of the heavy lifting and i'm a rookie when it comes to this stuff, but it's a collaboration!) and Evan will be illustrating. Look for more info on that original comic in the coming weeks on this blog. We're thinking: exploding corpses, child narrators and mind-controlling parasites-- you dig?

Here is the cover of the comic we'll be handing out. If anyone really wanted one, we might be able to send some extras to readers of this blog. If you are interested, send us an email at samehat @ and we'll get back to you early next week about it!

PS. blogger sucks! this was supposed to be posted yesterday, but blogger was on the fritz ALL DAY!
