  • Independent Publishing and the Evolution of Graphic NovelsAlternative Press Expo Vendor Hall

    The annual Alternative Press Expo has come and gone once again and I'm quite honestly bummed out that I didn’t get a chance to attend this year.

Nevertheless, I'll spend the time to reflect on last years APE expo instead and give some insight to why independent publishing is so special and the creators they are promoting are becoming more relevant to patrons of the library and fans of graphic novels in general.
