Loser Of The Week
The reputation of certain comics public spaces as safe places, whether or not they should have had that reputation to begin with.

Quote Of The Week
"When I was learning to read and such comic-book creators as Walt Kelly and Carl Barks were telling me fresh stories every month, I also learned that what I didn't buy one month would be gone forever the next. I haunted the newsstand and planned my allowance accordingly, because I wasn't going to get another chance at those issues. I certainly was never going to find them at the library." -- Maggie Thompson
