Scott Pilgrim goes to Japan

Although the final volume of Scott Pilgrim has come and gone, Bryan O’Malley’s epic comic lives on overseas — with new cover art by O’Malley himself!

The image at right is for a Japanese edition of Scott Pilgrim that collects vols. 5 and 6. The image, colored by Mariel Kinuko Cartwright, is a not-so-subtle homage to a classic illustration for Street Fighter Zero 2 (also known as Street Fighter Alpha 2).

Although his follow-up project to Scott Pilgrim hasn’t been announced yet, O’Malley has done several new Scott Pilgrim illustrations for foreign editions of his series that you can view on his website,

I didn’t notice the homage the Street Fighter Zero 2 until you pointed that out. That’s incredibly awesome.

I love the art. Since this is the last Scott Pilgrim novel to be released anywhere, what’s the future for Scott Pilgrim? Is it really over?
