‘The Pitiful Human Lizard’ Chapter 17 Review: Paladins In Peril – Part 2

The Pitiful Human Lizard Chapter 17 review Chapterhouse comics

I haven’t read The Pitiful Human Lizard, from Chapterhouse Comics, before and that’s why after reading chapter 17 I’m disappointed for not starting sooner!

I was provided a review copy of The Pitiful Human Lizard Chapter 17. The opinions are my own.

The Pitiful Human Lizard Chapter 17, which is Issue 6 of Season 3, opened with a galactic battle. I had no prior idea about the characters, but the delightful art and story by Jason Loo kept me reading. Soon I got to know about an evil alien invasion (led by Lord Kraan) facing against the Divine Paladins of Razma-Foon (the good guys). And yes, the titular hero, Lucas Barret, was in there too.

From what I could tell, Lucas has high-level regenerative abilities. Also, he has a relatable sense of humor. I mean, I too would be thinking of video games if I ever got to fight in a galactic battle.

I liked the fast-paced action in the issue. I was also surprised to see the good guys suffering some major losses during the battle. However, while surprising, it helped me feel sorry for the team even though I didn’t know much about them.

There’s definitely a lot of worldbuilding going on in this series. In a single issue, I was introduced to the Divine Paladins, Razma-Foon, her evil brother, Lord Kraan, different alien species, and more. And while it might sound like too much for a single issue, I liked how Jason Loo made everything easy to understand through his storytelling, even for newcomers like me.

After reading the current issue (which I enjoyed), I decided to do some quick online research and the information I found is what led me to wish I had known about The Pitiful Human Lizard sooner.

This is a diverse comic book series. Lucas Barret is Chinese-Canadian, from a mixed-race marriage. His best friend and superhero partner is the Majestic Rat, a gay character who is a cashier and has the power to telepathically control multi-colored rats. There’s also Mother Wonder (she had a lot to do in Chapter 17), a WOC who is also a wife and a mother of three.

You should check out this recommendation to see why you need to start reading The Pitiful Human Lizard.

While I can understand Jason Loo’s deciding on such a title, there’s nothing pitiful about his comic book series, because the story, even with galactic battles, has a very grounded and humorous feel that’s sure to keep readers interested.

The Pitiful Human Lizard Chapter 17 is currently available for purchase.
