I own the Aquaman postcard that was part of this book, but I never knew where it came from or that it was part of a larger product. Luckily Shrine Correspondent Russell Burbage found the book at an antique store and was kind enough to scan some of the pages. Dig this crazy intro page!
I know it's kinda undignified, but do I love that shot of Aquaman holding some letters. I love it so.
Here are some of the postcards that you got with the book:
DC tried so hard to be flip and loose like Marvel was, but even when I was a kid I couldn't help but sense a distinct layer of flop sweat in their efforts, like when your Dad tried to be hip. Most of the sentiments here are sweet and straightforward, while some are just confusing ("Give me a break"?). Nevertheless, a lot of the art used is just terrific (Infantino! Schaffenberger! Giordano!) and I would have been thrilled to get cards like this, if only I had had any friends as a child.
Thanks for reminding me of a painful childhood memory Russell!
