US Postal Service promises light-speed delivery

Or some other silly, unimaginitive title. Whoops. Did I say that out loud?

Anyway, as you saw in this previous post here on the Comix Connection blog, the United States Postal Service had unveiled some neato outdoor drop boxes in R2-D2 drag. Well, apparently it was all part of the hype leading up to their release of these cool STAR WARS postage stamps:



Go HERE to check out the rest of the stamps on the USPS website... and apparently you can also enter to win a trip to something called STAR WARS CELEBRATION IV in Los Angeles, as part of the 30th Anniversary celebration of everything STAR WARS!


But I do think this is even hokier than my title:

"From a galaxy far, far away...to your mailbox."

Kind of a letdown, dontcha think? And it's probably just a bill or some flipping junk mail.

(I can't believe it's been 30 years since this came out. And how it's still such a huge part of peoples' lives. Yeesh, I'm old.)

Shadow - No, it didn't ship this week. It was supposed to, but something held it up. Strangely enough we DID get the preview copy last week, so I read it. It was great!
