Official Press Release
Jason Rodriguez’s graphic novel anthology Postcards: True Stories That Never Happened was the subject of a five-minute video pod now airing on Al Gore’s Emmy-winning TV station, Current TV. The documentary, produced by Gabe Uhr, follows Rodriguez to antique stores and local watering holes as he buys postcards, talks about comics, and shares drinks with his fellow Washington DC-based creators.
To find out if you have Current TV in your home and to see when the pod will air, go to http://www.current.com/tv and look for “Wish You Were There.” Current TV loops their pods so that the piece will play at different times on different days. If your cable company does not offer Current TV, or if you’d rather just stay seated at your computer, you can also view the pod here.
If you enjoyed the Current TV pod, feel free to visit the Eximious Press YouTube channel where Rodriguez posts weekly videos about his used postcards and using them as prompts for stories.
About Postcards: True Stories That Never Happened
Published in 2007 by Villard Books and praised in USA Today, the Washington Post Express, and Daily Candy, the anthology consists of 16 stories inspired by used postcards purchased at flea markets, estate sales, and antique stores from around the country. Over 30 of comics’ celebrated creators came together to tell tales of mystery, romance, war, and heartbreak extrapolated from century-old pieces of long-forgotten ephemera.
