Chris and Joe went to second annual CXC festival in Columbus, Ohio, and decided to record a podcast about their trip on the car ride home. That’s a great idea, right? In between they talk about Winsor McCay, Charles Burns, Garry Trudeau and just how cool that Billy Ireland museum is (it’s pretty cool).

COMMUNITY. That's our message this week. MATT SENECA visits TCAF and reports on the scene.  JOE MCCULLOCH buys a stack of 1997 Avatar Press comics and gazes across the tides of history. CHRIS MAUTNER reads a Junji Ito's Fragments of Horror and ponders the nature of art and authorship. COMMUNITY. I don't need to explain this metaphor. TOGETHER WE CANNOT BE BROKEN.  Please consult the comments for factual corrections.
