CBR Talks ‘Bout Postcards
While e-mail and text messaging may be the new communication crazes sweeping the world, the idea of the postcard still carries quite a powerful nostalgic power for those familiar with these bite sized messages. Many of us imagine epic loves kept alive during wartimes through these carefully worded messages, and some know postcards as their first indication that their family members might just be vacationing in Florida. No matter what memories first surface when you see a postcard, there's no denying the mystique these little pieces of history have acquired over time. With that in mind, Jason Rodriguez has collected a unique assortment of postcards, added in some acclaimed creators, and assembled a 168-page hardcover anthology entitled "Postcards," set to debut in 2007, as a self-published original graphic novel. Rodriguez took some time out of his busy schedule to discuss "Postcards" with CBR News and answered the first question on the mind of people who have seen the book's gorgeous art: what's "Postcards" all about?
I'm so psyched for Jason, and when you guys see all the crazy shit in this book, your heads might just blow up.
