SECONDS Book Launch Event
Featuring author Bryan Lee O’Malley
Wednesday, July 30th, Doors 8:30, Event 9pm
@ The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, 506 Bloor Street West
Admission $10/door or FREE with Advance Purchase of SECONDS at The Beguiling

One and all! Please welcome Bryan Lee O’Malley, author of the bestselling Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series, as he celebrates the release of his new graphic novel SECONDS in Toronto! O’Malley will be interviewed on stage at The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema about SECONDS, the massive success of Scott Pilgrim, and the transition between the two.

Admission to this event will be ticketed. Tickets are $10 each at the door or FREE with the Advance Purchase of SECONDS at The Beguiling.

BONUS: All attendees of this event will received a free 5″ x 7″ mini-print featuring the cast of SECONDS, illustrated by Bryan Lee O’Malley!

ABOUT SECONDS:

The highly anticipated new stand-alone, full-colour graphic novel from Bryan Lee O’Malley, author and artist of the hugely bestselling (and Toronto-set) Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series.
Seconds is a complex and novelistic stand-alone story about a young restaurant owner named Katie who, after being visited by a magical apparition, is given a second chance at love and to undo her wrongs. Fans new and old will love O’Malley’s bold and quirky style infused with his subtle, playful humour.
In Seconds, Bryan Lee O’Malley plays the angst of youth against the fabric of larger epics. In doing so, he enriches both. At long last, dear reader, one can dream of heroes and monsters and battles beyond this earth while contemplating the virtues of ‘having a thing’ in the grocery pantry. A great ride!”
—Guillermo del Toro
“Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds is adorable, haunting, funny, and beautiful. A perfect recipe for a great graphic novel.”
—Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics
