Dean Haspiel and Josh Neufeld, the cartoonists behind the critically acclaimed anthology Keyhole, reunite with Lionel's Lament, a unique two-man narrative corpse. Their joint creation, Lionel is back in an all-new adventure. Lionel wakes up to an unpleasant surprise. From that point on, he must deal with family issues, maggots, super-heroes, imaginary friends, the perils of public transportation, the dangerous Bronx streets, and a very large stash of cash - all in the space of one ill-fated day.

Lionel's Lament is told in a unique format. An unscripted impromptu collaboration, the story begins with an episode by Josh, episode 2's response is by Dean, episode 3's by Josh, and so on. Created over a three-year period beginning in the summer of 2001, Lionel's Lament's all-too-human, pathetically heroic story is now available to be read in its entirety.
