Toronto can be a crazy, cartoonish city to live in at times, what with the annual pillow fights, cosplay beach parties, zombie walks and the like. But for those looking to go even farther down the rabbit hole, some of the most talented local comic creators are uniting to present you an anthology of fantastical stories set in and inspired by our fair city.
Toronto is home to many misfits, but perhaps none are as celebrated as The Human Lizard. Just over a year ago, Toronto comic book artist Jason Loo independently launched The Pitiful Human Lizard thanks to the positive support of fans on KickStarter. Recently I had a chance to hear Loo speak about his motivation to keep his comic independent, his history with the Human Lizard himself, and the notion of Toronto as its own character in the story.
