Toronto finally has it’s very own hero, and boy is he pitiful…
The above art is my incentive pin-up for my pal Jason Loo's new project, The Pitiful Human Lizard! Colors by the ever-delightful Rosemary Cheetham.
Jason is a talented local writer/artist/colorist and cosplayer, and he’s making the jump to print comics with The Pitiful Human Lizard!
Set in our shared home of Toronto, this book looks stellar! It is packed with personality and well-observed research into the character of the setting. It’s the spiritual heir to books like The Jam and Dishman (you thought I was going to say The Tick! didn’t you? Yeah, maybe a bit of that too…)
Jason’s finished the book, and is kickstarting his printing costs, and as of today, he’s hit his goal and then some, so the project is a go! But you, you!, still have 3 days to participate and get yourself a copy, and maybe take home the above sweet print, or maybe even the original art, for you heavy hitters out there…
This is grassroots Canadian comics right here, (Like Captain Canuck! But different!) please give it a look. Toronto needs a hero! Even one as, uh, pitiful as this.
