The Isotope Recommends:
An APE Weekend-A-Go-Go

Can you feel that? It's your heart racing with the knowledge that we're right on the edge of the best weekend all year here in San Francisco... the weekend of the Alternative Press Expo. We here at the Isotope love APE for far too many reasons to list, but most of all we love APE weekend because it's the weekend that's all about the love for comics.

As usual, there's a ton of things going on during APE weekend, as the convention spirit always spreads through the city offering comic creators and fans an excuse to launch gallery shows, set up workshops, and throw parties in celebration of comics. It's easy to fill up your schedule with so much going on, so allow us to select out a few events to recommend. There's some stuff going on at other shops and at a few galleries and cool spots we like as well... but a body can't do everything, so here's our suggestions:

Jeffrey Brown @ Giant Robot

Our amigos at Giant Robot kick off APE weekend right with a in-store signing with alt-comix giant Jeffrey Brown. Who would want to miss that?

Friday, April 20th
Giant Robot Store
618 Shrader @ Haight
6:30pm - 8:30pm

Going Ape!

Readings by queer cartoonists Paige Braddock, Abby Denson, Tim Fish, Robert Kirby, and the hilarious Justin Hall. We suggest grabbing yourself some dinner while you're there!

Saturday, April 21st
3 Dollar Bill Cafe
1800 Market St @ Octavia
7:00pm - 10:00pm

You didn't think we were going to forget to mention our very own APE AFTERMATH, did you?

This event also features the Top Shelf Happy Hour with publisher Brett Warnock, hot tunes from one of our favorite sonic engineers DJ Bearzbub, and two of our former mini-comic award winners... the brilliant Daniel Merlin Goodbrey, and the Eisner Award nominated Danica Novgorodoff.

Ah yes... APE weekend! What could be better!
