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.

New Comics? You know who cares about new comics? Losers, that’s who. Which is why this week Matt, Joe and Chris pulled some old comics out of their longboxes to talk about — old, obscure comics you probably haven’t heard of before. ‘Cause you’re so uncool.
