SECONDS (Bryan Lee O'Malley)

Après la série Scott Pilgrim, Bryan Lee O’Malley travaille activement sur un graphic novel qui parlera du quotidien d’un restaurant de Toronto. Voici la première image de Seconds, qui sera publié en 2013 par Villard Books, une filiale du groupe Random House:


Le site de l’éditeur :

Oh que j’ai hâte.

Je me demandais justement l’autre jour ce qu’il nous préparait. Bonne nouvelle !

Ce sera en couleur ?
Je trouve ça bien plus joli en couleur qu’en noir et blanc, du coup j’attaquerai sans doute Scott Pilgrim avec la publication en couleur aussi ([size=85]même si je la trouve assez moyenne par rapport aux teintes du jeu vidéo Scott Pilgrim VS the World[/size]).

C’est rare que je préfère des planches ou des dessins en couleur à ce point par rapport au noir et blanc, mais pour O’Malley, je trouve vraiment qu’on y gagne .

Seconds est repoussé à 2014:

[quote=“Bryan Lee O’Malley”]Welllll…….

I hurt my shoulder last summer and couldn’t work for a few months and unfortunately the book had to be delayed because of it.

I’m back to work on it now, but it won’t be out until………




I was about halfway through writing/penciling the book when I had to stop, and it was really daunting to get back to work on it. That’s why I’ve been doing side projects recently like the Young Avengers cover and Battle Royale poster… it’s been helpful to work on smaller projects as I warm up from my time off.

Anyway, I hate talking about this behind the scenes stuff and I’m not here to complain about my cushy life but I’m going to have to explain this delay eventually and this is why: because of my health. I had to take a frustratingly long break in order to repair my body, and during that time off I’ve been working hard on fitness and stuff so this doesn’t happen again.

When I found out the book would have to be delayed into 2014 it was maybe the saddest day of my life…

I will continue to do more status updates on Seconds throughout 2013 as I get anywhere near finishing it. (You may have noticed I haven’t talked about it much since last summer; this is why…)

Sorry to all my fans.

Seconds sort aujourd’hui !

[quote] **The highly anticipated new standalone full-color graphic novel from Bryan Lee O’Malley, author and artist of the hugely bestselling Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series
Katie’s got it pretty good. She’s a talented young chef, she runs a successful restaurant, and she has big plans to open an even better one. Then, all at once, progress on the new location bogs down, her charming ex-boyfriend pops up, her fling with another chef goes sour, and her best waitress gets badly hurt. And just like that, Katie’s life goes from pretty good to not so much. What she needs is a second chance. Everybody deserves one, after all—but they don’t come easy. Luckily for Katie, a mysterious girl appears in the middle of the night with simple instructions for a do-it-yourself do-over:

  1. Write your mistake
  2. Ingest one mushroom
  3. Go to sleep
  4. Wake anew

And just like that, all the bad stuff never happened, and Katie is given another chance to get things right. She’s also got a dresser drawer full of magical mushrooms—and an irresistible urge to make her life not just good, but perfect. Too bad it’s against the rules. But Katie doesn’t care about the rules—and she’s about to discover the unintended consequences of the best intentions.

From the mind and pen behind the acclaimed Scott Pilgrim series comes a madcap new tale of existential angst, everyday obstacles, young love, and ancient spirits that’s sharp-witted and tenderhearted, whimsical and wise.

Advance praise for Seconds

“In Seconds, Bryan Lee O’Malley plays the angst of youth against the fabric of a larger epic. In doing so, he enriches both. 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 **[/quote]
