Tiny Life is a radical departure from conventional comics. There are no super-heroes, there is no manga. There are no post-apocalyptic vampire-cyborgs who terrorize the zombie populace while simultaneously falling in love with the one shy yet very attractive girl who’s just coming into her own. It is the completely original story of Jed, a stick-figure in a world of flesh, who must eventually learn – like we all do – the truth about himself, about relationships, about God, and about reality. Tiny Life is about the world behind things.
Taking place almost a decade before the events of the last book, “left” contains the reasons why Jed doesn’t trust his dad or the seemingly-saintly status he attained in “l(a”. As far as he knows, his dad abandons him for no apparent reason. As far as he knows, all of his friends just happen to be leaving as well. As far as he knows, the red dot that chases him has no purpose. And as far as he knows, the failed political speechwriter who understands his life’s purpose is not out to kill him.
But then again, he’s only eleven; he has time.
