I wandered around APE for a few hours last Saturday. The Count and I were thinking about getting a booth there, but this plan fell through.
However, attending APE as a civilian is still a recommended activity. I was able to meet Kate Beaton (and pick up some copies of her book) as well as Dylan Meconis. A bit of history was discussed, mostly in the form of Henry the Second’s son Geoffrey. Although, I must confess, this was a Geoffrey I didn’t know anything about.
Also, while waiting in Kate Beaton’s line, I was standing next to Tasha Harris of Double Fine. (She also has a game related to her comic.) We mostly talked about her comic and how Brutal Legend is awesome.
Basically, everyone I met at APE was super cool in addition to being extra nice. So, it was a good time.
