Pipu
PICTURE STORIES

* * * * *

Pipu comes from the same world as the Smurfs, Tin Tin, Little Miss and Mister Men, Saturday Morning Cartoons, and other pop culture directed at children but written for adults. Detailing the bizarre adventures of a dog-sized yellow Peep, Pipu is nothing but wonderful candy for your brain. But unlike normal candy, it doesn’t rot your teeth. Pipu is vitamin fortified so you come away from reading it feeling hyper like a crazy little kid. Pipu is the creation of Sean and Katie Äaberg.

Issues No.1 through No.14 were printed half-digest size, or 4.25 x 5.5 inches. Issues in Series Two were printed digest size, or 8.5 x 5.5 inches.
