During our chat, Jason talked about celebrating the 5th anniversary of The Pitiful Human-Lizard. He commented on the possibility of his creation making an appearance in another medium perhaps on TV. Jason also offered insights about his future plans including the collection of The Pitiful Human-Lizard making an appearance at the upcoming Toronto Comic Arts Festival.
