SLG Publishing’s Dan Vado, a founder of the Alternative Press Expo (APE), is launching a new series of comics festivals focused on indy and small press comics and zines.  The San Jose Comics Festival has been planned as a series of single-day shows throughout the year that will commence on January 16th with a free event that will be held the SLG Publishing gallery/warehouse compound in downtown San Jose and will feature special guests, Jamaica Dyer (Weird Fishes), Rich Koslowski (3 Geeks), and Landry Walker (Tron, Little Gloomy). 


Vado says that unlike APE, the San Jose Comics Fests will not concentrate on single type of comic or creator, “the Comics Festivals will be about people who do the work, regardless of what kind of comics they choose to produce.”
