Amateur Press Associations (or "APA"s as they are known) are a group of like-minded individuals who publish their own collections of material and distribute them free of charge to other members in the Association.

The Comic Fantasy Art Amateur Press Association (CFA-APA) was created by long time comics fan Roger Hill and they publish their own journal of comic art (usually on a specific topic) 2 - 4 times a year.

The #17 mailing, dated 31 January 1990 was on Will Eisner and The Spirit:

The cover to the CFA-APA issue on The Spirit & Will Eisner

Featuring lots of artwork (mainly pieces done for fans) by Eisner and several articles on Eisner's work on The Spirit as well as other works like: Captain Scott Dalton, Espionage starring 'Black Ace', The Flame [under name of Ermin], Dan Dugan the Patrol Squad as well as the handful of graphic novels that Will Eisner had released by then.

With a circulation of only 60 copies, this publication is usually highly sought after by collectors.
