Regularly and frequently we at Postcard receive fanmail from readers across the world, and today I have decided to publish some of the letters and e-mails that we receive, along with some replies:
I read your comics every day and my favourite parts in particular are the "Hubert & Schubert" strips that come out every Tuesday & Thursday. Just where do you get the inspiration for the adventures of those two?
- Jenny Swale, Knoxville, TN, USA
Well Jenny, I've spoken with the guy who writes and draws those strips, and he tells me that it's two fold: 1.) From watching the antics of the squirrels that roam his garden, and 2.) From his 9AM bottle of Cider. I hope that answers your question.
I have long admired the quality of the artwork that your comic has published over the years, and I must ask, what equipment do you use and where could I possibly buy some for myself?
- Arthur Dale, Andover, Wiltshire, England, UK
We appreciate your appreciation of our comic's artwork, Arthur, but unfortunately as of late our art equipment is made bespoke by a source that has asked to remain anonymous for the time being, lest they be overrun with requests and demands. Nevertheless, I shall endeavour to speak with them on the matter and see if we can work something out.
My fayvrit carictuh is Percy the cat. i think he is very funnee and cute
- Lucy (Aged 5), Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Aww, thank you Lucy. I've had a word with Percy and he thanks you for your kind words, and he hopes you continue to enjoy reading about his adventures.
Please please please please please please please please please please please please please can I have my old job back! I'll do 50% extra hours! I'll work for less than the minimum wage! I'll personally clean out the quad every day with my own personal toothbrush! Can't you just please just forgive me and let me back in!

Absolutely not you miserable, two-faced, slimy, scum licking, weasely traitor. For what you've done you should consider it an honour that I even read this pathetic little missive of yours. You should be thankful that any of us even bother to occasionally throw out the odd scrap of barely edible food in your general direction. Quite frankly I'm of a mind to call the police and have them haul you off our property, but even the grottiest prison cell out there would be too good for you.
Oh, and I know for a fact that you don't even own a toothbrush.
