Biography/History

"CAPA-alpha was the first amateur press association (APA) devoted to comic books, started by Jerry Bails in the United States in 1964. In an attempt to focus emerging talents and head off the over-abundance of poor quality fanzines, Bails adapted the long-standing practice of APAs for comics, creating the first all-comics APA. This allowed the easy formulation of a fanzine, created through submissions by each of its fifty-strong membership, who could all contribute short submissions on a regular basis. Compiled in the regular APA mould by a "central mailer", copies of the membership's individual submissions could then be collated and mailed out to everyone" -- Wikipedia.
