Tag: Bryan O’Malley
So Bryan Lee O’Malley is the creator of Scott Pilgrim. Scott Pilgrim, before it was an awesome movie that nobody but a few people and some critics watched, is a manga. It’s sister manga, Lost at Sea, was written by O’Malley prior to the first novel of Scott Pilgrim. I’ve read both. I consider them both excellent examples of how visual medium and text medium can be combined to write meaningful and entertaining stories. But don’t just take my word for it:
For my female friends who managed to see the movie but not read the manga, who took except at the lack of dynamic female characters, I highly suggest reading the first link by Jennifer McDonald, in order to get a better feel for how the source material portrayed the female characters of Scott Pilgrim before they went through Hollywood filtering.
Anyway again I highly suggest both series. For my friends, I might be willing to loan out copies. Also note that Bryan has announced on his blog that a box set of Scott Pilgrim with fancy new art box and a poster will be released in the new future. Le sigh… sometimes being a fan costs way too much money.
