This Tuesday, July 15, will see the release of Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s long-awaited follow-up to his wildly successful Scott Pilgrim series, Seconds! O’Malley is launching a book tour in support of his new graphic novel, and his journey will bring him to the East Coast for an appearance at our Halifax location. This will be a ticketed, after-hours event beginning at 5 PM on Saturday, August 2. How do you get a ticket, you ask? Simply buy a copy of Seconds from us once it goes on sale, and you’ll be given a ticket to gain entry. Then you can come and get Seconds signed!
It’s just that simple! But the Bryan Lee O’Malley celebration doesn’t end there–we’re hosting a special screening of Edgar Wright‘s film adaptation, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, at Cineplex’s Park Lane location on Thursday, July 31. Tickets for the screening are available now at our Halifax location for only five bucks!
But wait, there’s more! The movie starts at 7PM, but starting at 6PM there will be a special costume contest! Show up dressed as your favourite Scott Pilgrim supporting character, and you could win a super-limited edition Ramona Flowers handbag (not to mention some other fabulous prizes to be announced on the night!).
Whew! So don’t forget to grab a copy of Seconds from us starting tomorrow, and make sure you demand your ticket to the signing! Plus you’ve got a few weeks to start working on your Scott Pilgrim-inspired costume…or feel free to just show up and enjoy the film! In the meantime, enjoy some 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
