If you’re in the Bay Area, get ready to go APE! One of the country’s most popular and vibrant alternative comics shows, The Alternative Press Expo returns to The Concourse Exhibition Center (620 7th St., San Francisco), rolling into the city by the bay this weekend, October 17 and 18, 2009.
On Sunday, Oct. 18th, 5:00–5:45, come check us out for Pop Perversity: Parody in Comics and Art — “Isabel Samaras (On Tender Hooks) and R. Sikoryak (Masterpiece Comics), parodists from the worlds of art and comics, show their work and describe how their sharp, sly images blur the boundaries between the popular and the profound, the propagandistic and the profane. Parody is a familiar part of our culture, but when done right it can still shock and awe, revealing deep truths while it makes us cackle.” (Cartoons! Naked ladies and gents! Geeky in-jokes!)
The APE programming room is located adjacent to the Exhibit Hall. Be there or be L7!
