Reviews

"Comeau has an unparalleled knack for finding the sweet sadness and rare humour in common pain, in the painfully commonplace." --"Quill & Quire" (April 2012)
"Gleefully and constructively subversive...Comeau is contributing a vital, welcome voice to a dialogue integral to our society." --www.WinnipegReview.com
""The Complete Lockpick Pornography" is an engaging, occasionally moving, and consistently well-written item--both for fans already familiar with Comeau's "A Softer World" comics and those encountering him for the first time." --Colin Brush, "Broken Pencil"
"A smart, hip, highly readable author" --Alex Good, "Toronto Star"
"Lockpick Pornography" isn't the first book that features queer characters, nor the first book to be angry or challenging. Yet Lockpick "does feel new. There's a balance between love and violence, accusation and compassion, that tugs at the heartstrings and keeps the book in your thoughts. It's easy to see the characters' flaws--it's their virtues which come out more slowly. That makes it all the more rewarding when you finish the book, and realize that everyone was worthy of your empathy and interest." --Michelle Grifka, "The Airspace"
"The best parts of Toronto-based writer Joey Comeau's stories in "The Complete Lockpick Pornography "are his surprising yet compassionate endings." --"The Coast"
"Queers of all stripes will enjoy this grimy, affectionate, endlessly questioning paean to unclassifiability and defiance." --"Publisher's Weekly"
"In a lot of ways I see "Lockpick "as a sister text to Nelly Arcan's amazing "Exit"." --August C. Bourre, "Vestige.org"
