comics: a lot of random interests

The second issue of Bash Magazine is out, and Kyle mentioned an advice column comic that I just had to see and he wasn’t kidding! I’d never heard of Tiny Sepuku before, but I’m thinking of sending a question or so in just for fun. You’d think it would be the Pride Day Coordinator that would get me, but I completely cracked up when I read the one marked for being a Barista.

This issue seemed shorter than the last, but that may have been my fast reading while on the train home. I like a lot of the offerings in Bash and it’s caused me to find a few new comics/artists I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. And considering the news only seems to have about 3 rotating topics at the moment, anything to read that’s an alternative to newspapers is a welcome change.

    It’s cute, but that artist is seriously twisted for making something cute out of the word for a traditional method of suicide in Japan. I’ll come back to it for sure.

    You’re right, the barista one is so spot on – “It’s funny because it’s true!”

    Although loving all things kawaii can be a sign of something appropriately disturbing.

    可愛い (kawaii) is ubiquitous in contemporary Japan. As someone who’s part Japanese, I have to agree with you there, Kyle. There are some very disturbing manifestations of the cute factor, and that can take several posts or an entire blog.

    @shindo & @kyle: The only kawaii thing I like is the webcomic Kawaii Not.
