The Pitiful Human- Lizard is a comic book series created by cartoonist Jason Loo. The story follows corporate lackey Lucas Barrett who finds excitement outside his 9-to-5 job as a struggling superhero. The debut issue is a grounded underdog story that takes place in the city of Toronto. It's a new, comical approach on a superhero who is uniquely Canadian.

Toronto's got a new superhero! And he's pitiful! Lucas Barrett is a 9-5 office lackey during the day and a struggling superhero on evenings and weekends. He's also broke. While his job salary is not enough to support his crime-fighting hobby, Lucas finds an alternate plan that may heighten his superhero status. This is the 64-page, full-colour debut issue of The Pitiful Human-Lizard! 

 Chapterhouse proudly presents the first of five reprinted issues of Loo Harvest’s The Pitiful Human Lizard. Creator Jason Loo will continue his highly-lauded series under the Chapterhouse banner, beginning with #6 in February 2015.
