First postcard, received a few weeks ago:
Image--woman using a knife to cut the rope tying her hands, taken from a newspaper comic.
verso: "MIGUEL AND SPIDER-MAN WERE RIGHT. I MUST REJOIN OUR REBELS--TO HELP FIGHT THE DICTATOR'S MEN!"
Second postcard, received a few days ago:
Image--title panel from "Prince Valiant," depicting a haughty princess walking away from a couple of pretty fearsome warriors who are about to set upon each other; captioned "CORMAC HAS COME TO RETRIEVE HIS RUNAWAY WIFE, VALETA, AND HIS DEMAND IS ABOUT TO REAP A BLOODY HARVEST WHEN VALETA ASKS HIM TO STEP AWAY AND RESOLVE THE MATTER BETWEEN THEM ALONE. CORMAC NODS AGREEMENT AND THE TWO RETREAT."
verso: NEXT: THE REASON WHY
Well, needless to say, I'm puzzled by this mail, puzzled and amused. I asked the Miguel I know about it, and he had no clue. I do like Prince Valiant. I've never felt any urge to join the rebels, and I have no bones to pick with any medieval warrior princes. The cards appear to be printed on a printer, but they are addressed in pencil--in a hand I don't recognize. I couldn't read the postmark on the first card, but the second one was marked Columbus, Ohio. So, a bit of a mystery; and thus far, kind of entertaining. Will the reason why actually be next???
