Stuart Ng Books at APE in SF Oct 17 & 18

For all our Bay Area friends, Stuart will have a table at APE (Alternative Press Expo). Here's the link for info on this small press con:

We'll be featuring the sketchbooks we've published. Mary will also be at APE, helping Stuart. (No bag check at this show :) Be sure to tell them I sent you when you stop by to say hi :)
Stuart is currently working on a NEW book which we'll debut at the CTNX show in November.

On the 17th, our showroom in Torrance will be open 12-4 as usual. You won't go away empty handed: We still have a FREE in-shrinkwrap copy of Out of Picture vol 1 as a "thank you" for each visitor to our showroom..... Holidays are approaching, and this book makes a great gift.

SNB in LA Weekly "Best of LA" 2009 - updated 10.4.16

We've been getting messages and now I can confirm... it's true!

Stuart Ng Books is featured in the LA Weekly "Best of LA 2009" issue on newsstands now!

We had no idea this was coming....There's a very nice blurb about us on page 28. Check it out!

Update 10.16 -- text from the "Best of" issue .... It has the current SNB address, but the text has the old store hours. The store is open M-Sat. Hours and store photos on the website:

The first thing you notice at Stuart Ng Books is the wall filled with autographs and sketches from L.A.'s top animators. The South Bay rare book shop is immensely popular within the animation and comic book industries for Ng's impeccable selection of imported graphic novels, out-of-print art books and independently published artist sketchbooks. Open to the public only on Saturday afternoons and by appointment throughout the week, Stuart Ng Books isn't cheap, but it is reasonable. French and Belgian comics, which come in hardcover, glossy editions with exquisitely colored oversized panels, run about $30. The best deals are the artist sketchbooks, which start at $5. These often self-published, zine-styled releases offer a unique insight into the minds of animators and comic book artists. Ng stocks titles from Glen Murakami (Teen Titans), Eric Powell (The Goon) and many others. Check the store's Web site often, as it will list any upcoming promotional items. 22910 Crenshaw Blvd., Torrance. (310) 909-1929,
