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
Hey. Let’s be honest for a second here: Toronto’s had a pretty rough year.
We wanted to do something a little cool to remind us that there’s good in this city as well, that there’s positive stuff being put out into the world, and just maybe some folks are gonna wanna show a little hometown pride… or maybe you just like Scott Pilgrim?
So here at The Beguiling, we got together with Oni Press and Bryan Lee O’Malley, and we’re very happy to announce that we’re bringing back a limited run of the “TORONTO” t-shirt, featuring Kim Pine from the Scott Pilgrim comics series.
This shirt is in-stock, and available now. Yes, we realize it is like 1 day til Christmas.
The shirt is available in Women’s Small, Medium, Large, and XL,
and in Men’s Small, Medium, Large, XL, and 2XL.
It retails for $20.
We’re pretty thrilled that we get to do something cool for all y’all. Thanks for your continuing patronage this year.
P.S.: Thanks to Krystle and Andrew for modelling!
