the comic featured a minimalist style of art, humor, and grammar. originally, the comic also featured character-driven stories about a ghost and some other people

it used punctuation only sporadically [[SelfDemonstratingArticle which is why this article is written this way]] not because we are too dumb to find the shift key. blame merry graves

the two main characters were paul and gary, although sometimes the comic would follow the other minor characters for a little bit

paul, [[PhraseCatcher who was a ghost]], who was wearing a bedsheet, died just before the first strip. he wore the bed sheet to look [[BedsheetGhost ghosty]] of course. he hated everything and didn't care

gary was a grad student who worked at a call center that took the overflow of indian help lines. people called him and [[{{hilarity ensues}} hilarity ensued]]

after 226 pages, the story of paul and gary came to a very abrupt and inconclusive end. since then, the comic continued as an unconnected series of surreal one-shots w/ sometimes story arcs but not as long as the big one

the world of ''pictures for sad children'' was [[CrapsackWorld cynical]]. most of the characters were depressed even though they knew that they had no real problems. the main characters also resigned themselves to a life of unfulfilled dreams and crushing meaningless jobs.

there were many [[MagicalRealism magic realist]] elements to the world as well, like an ipod that played you your regrets, a family that had the powers of jesus, and passive-aggressive post-it notes that seemingly came from no one
