The last time we had Bryan Lee O’Malley in our shop was just before he got all gussied up for the red carpet premiere of Scott Pilgrim. That was two years ago so it’s about time we had him back — he still hasn’t seen our fancy new shop! This time he’s joined at the signing table by his phenomenally talented wife, Hope Larson, so you’re getting two great creators for the price of one signing line. It’s all happening on Friday the 7th of December, from 5pm to 7pm and you are invited. Find out who borrowed your Scott Pilgrims, ring them up and demand them back. You need to bring these tea-spattered and much-loved volumes along to Gosh! Comics and you can tell them we said so. But! If you’re new to the world of Larson and O’Malley and have no need to make demanding phonecalls, perhaps you would like to purchase some of these on the day instead:
From the Larson shelf you can have Gray Horses, her first book after the web-syndicated Salamander Dream (which is sadly unavailable), Chiggers, a story about summer camp reviewed here by Geeks of Doom, and it’s spiritual successor Mercury reviewed at Shelf Abuse. Her latest book is a comics adaptaion of Madeline L’Engle‘s 1962 science-fiction novel, A Wrinkle in Time. Over at MTV Geek she talks about being a lifelong L’Engle fan and about the pressures of adapting well-loved stuff like this one. Lots of preview pages in that link.
And from O’Malley you can have Lost at Sea, a road trip story from 2003, and all six Scott Pilgrim volumes. And! If you already own all the Scott Pilgrim volumes you might also be tempted at the last minute when you see the new colour hardcover editions — volumes 1 and 2 for £18.99 a pop.
If you can’t make it on the day and would like to request a signed book then send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll sort it out for you.
Friday, December 7
5pm to 7pm
