Lost At Sea Archives - Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources
Bryan Lee O’Malley has largely maintained a veil of secrecy around Seconds, his follow-up to the bestselling Scott Pilgrim series, teasing fans with panel excerpts and the above limited-edition print while waving off questions about the graphic novel. “I don’t want to tell anyone just yet,” he writes in his Tumblr FAQ. “Please enjoy the mystery for now.” But in a new interview on the Random House of Canada website, the cartoonist offers what may be the first significant details about the highly anticipated book.
“I came up with the general idea for Seconds right after completing the first volume of Scott Pilgrim,” O’Malley says. “I worked in a restaurant in Toronto for a little while to pay the bills while writing the second volume and planning the rest of the series, and I had a few ideas for this other story, a story about a restaurant. So, Seconds is about a restaurant, and the restaurant is called Seconds, and 90 percent of the story takes place within it. Beyond that it’s really hard for me to explain and I’m going to have to work on that so I can talk about it properly when it comes out. But it’s funny and weird and kind of big and crazy despite the mundane setting.”
Hey, it’s Thanksgiving this week! Which means it’s “Black Friday” this week! Which means, if you’re anything like me, you’re going to spend Friday staying far away from the madding crowds crushing themselves to death or a worryingly-close equivalent in search of a great bargain. So why not spend the time reading some comics, instead? For once, here’re some digital comics I think you should download and read instead of leaving the house this Friday.
This isn’t any kind of “best of” selection; it’s literally just a list of things that you may have missed that jumped out at me while perusing Graphic.ly and ComiXology’s selections this weekend, many of which are favorites of mine for reasons both strong and entirely random.
