Editorial Reviews


"Comeau is unmistakably a provocateur, though his literary ambitions extend beyond simple provocation... The Complete Lockpick Pornography, a collection of two thematically linked novellas, is both gleefully and constructively subversive." ― Winnipeg Review

"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." ― Broken Pencil

"Comeau holds membership with a tiny group of envelope-pushing Canadian writers who challenge what we collectively view as worthy and acceptable subject matter in our literature" and went on to say that "Comeau has an unparalleled knack for finding the sweet sadness and rare humour in common pain, in the painfully commonplace." ― Quill & Quire

Joey "has a well-deserved reputation for cheerfully deranged work, borne out by this pair of thematically linked stories." ― Publishers Weekly

“The best parts of Toronto-based writer Joey Comeau's stories in The Complete Lockpick Pornography are his surprising yet compassionate endings...Both endings leave you reconsidering notions of violence, gender, sexuality and prejudice that surround us everyday." ― The Coast
