SDCC ’11 | Villard to publish Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds

Outline for "Seconds," by Bryan Lee O'Malley

Bryan Lee O’Malley’s hotly anticipated follow-up to his bestselling Scott Pilgrim series will be published in 2013 by Random House’s Villard imprint, Publishers Weekly reports.

Virtually nothing is known about the graphic novel beyond its title, Seconds, which O’Malley revealed in a tweet early last month. Random House’s Ryan Doherty will edit the book.

Published by Oni Press, all six volumes of the Scott Pilgrim series appeared on The New York Times bestseller list, thanks in part to director Edgar Wright’s 2010 adaptation. Although the film failed to ignite the box office, the books continue to sell well: The second volume, originally released in 2005, landed in BookScan’s Top 20 for graphic novels sold in bookstores in June — 10 months after the movie’s opening. The final volume, Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour, received a 100,000-copy first printing.

I came late to scott pilgrim, so i’ll be glad to pick up Bryan’s “seconds” on its first day.

I had never heard of Scott Pilgrim before the movie. After seeing the movie, I went and bought the books. I was blown away at how funny it was. I’m definately getting “Seconds” on the first day.
