This is Susie’s Cafe across the street from the APE convention hall. It was a happy and bustling little shack diner that smelled like bacon heaven. We had just dragged our tired selves out into the dimming sunlight of the industrial streets after a long day of feeding on comics, and this was the perfect place to settle down.
After that first APE report, all I have left are some miscellany and pictures to share. I also picked up plenty of comics that will show up as reviews later.
Recommendations: Jack (sp?) from Top Shelf recommended the Atrox group, Jen Wang, and Sina Grace. If you’re interested in Asian cinema, Gabe Martinez of Martin the Satanic Racoon, mentioned that Stonebridge had a table, while in general, Last Gasp! had some “good shit.” Josh Frankel, who does Deadly Combo as well as a trio of beautiful, nature themed comics (trilobite, Seafood, and Twilight of the Seacow), recommend the folks at Turk Street Project (they don’t seem to have a website, but I’ll be doing a review on one of their comics soon).
We’ve got some pictures uploaded on Flickr, with more coming in possibly.
