It's a well known fact in art history and art theory that viewer preferences for visual arts are culturally learnt, and not instinctive. So, for example, a person's preference for realism in art versus abstraction is actually a result of being exposed to lots of realistic art and being told by critics or naysayers that abstract art is somehow less aesthetically pleasing or interesting. Conversely, a person can learn to appreciate abstract art and in fact prefer it over representational art if exposed to it from a young age and encouraged to appreciate it.
So what I'd like you to do is to print out copies of my comics and wallpaper the room of your child's nursery with them, and constantly rave about how good they are, as your child grows up.
Hopefully in about 15-20 years someone will then write a positive review on Google for Postcard.
