Trisha L. Sebastian files a great report on APE 2003 at Sequential Tart. She had a lot of interaction with some of the more exciting artists working today:
As with Comic-Con 2002, there was one image from the Alternative Press Expo (APE) that defined the entire experience for me and it came at sometime after nine-thirty on Saturday night. I was sitting on one of the handy benches at the Cartoon Art Museum behind the bar, a beer in my hand, watching Trina Robbins, Donna Barr and some of the other female cartoonists whose artwork graced the walls, just gabbing and chatting.
There’s actually a second report on APE from Adrienne “I’m Not” Rappaport as well.
