I bought this book a few years ago at SDCC and I finally got around to reading it.  Writers and artists come together to tell stories based off of older postcards and the messages written on them.  It's an interesting exercise, and the stories range from sweet romances to creepy murder mysteries, histories and childhoods to campy superheros.  My two favorites were "A Joyous Eastertide," a man's memory of his devoted stepmother, who had Tourette's Syndrome, and "Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland," a story of a lost romance, discovered only after a funeral unearths an old, hidden postcard.  There are a couple of stories/artwork that is hit-and-miss, but overall I enjoyed this collection so much, particularly compared to other collections like Comic Book Ink.  There's a lot more to relate to in this collection, and it will have you thinking about the stories behind postcards... and those that could have been!
