|OK, this comic doesn't have its own thread and it's high time for one.|
Bryan Lee O'Malley's wonderful "American manga" series is up to Vol. 3 currently - it's the whimsical, fun, joycore soap-opera/comedy/action/videogame-inspired tale of slacker Scott Pilgrim, who plays in a band called Sex Bob-omb and his varied & sundry dating life. (funnily enough, the book, which is only available in paperback manga-sized digests from Oni Press - no 'single issues' - is categorized on the back cover as Comedy/Action/Drama/something else)
Who here has read it? Who here has fallen in love with this series which truly deserves the name JOYCORE? I feel like 'Lithers especially would love the hell out of this book.
Vol. 3, just out this past week, features several pages in the back with various indie artists doing Scott Pilgrim pin-ups/mini comics. Lots o'fun. I never read O'Malley's previous work, 'Lost at Sea,' but heard it was decent.
