About Tiny Sepuku
Tiny Sepuku is an advice comic
strip. The name is a butchered spelling of the Japanese word "seppuku"
which roughly means "sacrifice for the benefit of others". It began
as a parody of Hello Kitty for a small monthly in 1997 and developed into its
current format fairly quickly. In 1999 the periodical Tiny was printed in was
closing its doors and I was ready to let it disappear with it. My friends and
roommates encouraged and dared me to submit it to larger alternative weeklies
and all of a sudden Tiny became a syndicated comic strip. The greatest factor
in the success of the comic is reader participation. The readers have been very
supportive of the comic's concept and I can't thank them enough for all the
great questions they send in. There would be no comic if there were no questions
from the many students, working professionals, and all the other heartbroken
souls out there who just want to step outside their problems and laugh. I can't
thank them all enough for their support. They know I'm not a professional advice
columnist. I'm just a cartoonist, and I make no pretense of being otherwise.
There are plenty of other people to get "good" advice from and if
you have real problems I suggest you approach them to help you through it (I
list a couple places in the links
section). But if you want cartoons then you came to the right place. I hope
you enjoy them.
