Missing - APE 2010




Two copies of a large, expensive book (see picture) were stolen from our booth this past Sunday at APE. We know that they were taken from us, Pigeon Press booth #120 (see map below), sometime between 10:00-11:00 am on the morning of October 17. We’re putting this out there in the hope that someone might have seen them being taken from behind our unattended booth or being carried away that morning. If you were an exhibitor in that area of the San Francisco Concourse, please let us know if you noticed anything or might have taken any pictures in that area during that time period. It's unfortunate that this happened and we'd really like to get the books back. If you have any information or might have seen these books this weekend please let us know.

That stinks! I hope the thief is caught, if for no other reason than to find out how they pilfered something that is so gigantic!

It's not like you can slide it underneath your stack of quarter bin Richie Rich comics.

Chances are someone picked those things up by accident. It's an honest mistake anyone could make. They probably didn't even notice they had them in their hand.

I imagine some self-appointed 'Robin Hood of comics' pilfering these, then handing them out to a couple of beggar children outside the expo's walls.
(Fast-forward five minutes)
The two beggar children tug on the self-appointed Robin Hood of comics' cosplay cape, handing him back the two large tomes.
"These ain't comics, mister," one of them says in that adorable British lisp all beggar children have had since the advent of Oliver.
"Comics is funny," the other says, his large blue eyes wet with tears of disillusion and disappointment.

Charlton Heston was seen outside the con in a robe and fake beard smashing the two tomes in front of a small group of jaded Jews.

alvin i hope you find them

Maybe the thief used them to build a primitive but roomy raft, and sailed to Oakland.

Sorry Alvin, we didn't see anything from the Fanta booth.

Michelle said...

Seems to me they'd fit perfectly under some boxes underneath another vendor's table. Hope you get to the truth of this Alvin. It totally blows.

There was definitely some theft going on--someone stole a camera that was resting on the floor of the upper level. It might have been someone who had come in and was charging his electronics--we and the people on either side of us thought he was part of the other table, so we didn't question his presence in the large gap between us. (I don't suppose there was a guy with a motorcycle helmet and a messenger bag lingering near your table?) But it could have been anyone--so many people, and it's such a great, mellow event that your guard is really down. :/
