Pre-A.P.E. awesomeness at Comix Experience
One of my favorite comic series of recent years is Scott Pilgrim, and by “favorite” I mean, “would give up shoes for a month just to read the next one.” It tells the story of a twenty-something Canadian slacker/rocker/kung-fu protagonist and his quest to defeat the seven evil ex-boyfriends of the American Roller-Ninja Indie Chick that he has fallen in love with. The comic is amazing and funny and creative, and volume two has a killer vegan shepherd’s pie recipe. Seriously, I made it last night.
On April 20th, the night before the Alternative Press Expo (aka A.P.E.) begins, the creator of Scott Pilgrim and many other ridiculously talented comic authors and artists will be signing at San Francisco’s own Comix Experience.
Jeff Lester says: Kevin Huizenga, Hope Larson, Bryan Lee O’Malley, and Gene Yang are signing at Comix Experience from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 20, 2007. . . . This group of artists did some of the best work of 2006 and it’s all I can do not to unleash torrents of hype at all of you about their utter awesomeness. If you’re a Bay Area type or in town for APE, I hope you’ll drop by the store from 5 to 7, get a book signed from these four amazing talents, or just stop by to “hey.” APE can be an all-encompassing swirl and this may be a great way to get face time.
Why do these things always happen when I’m going to be out of town?
