Hey, there. Just a heads-up:

Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley has a new, 328-page hardcover graphic novel coming out July 15 — Seconds!!!

O’Malley: “Seconds is about a restaurant, and the restaurant is called Seconds, and 90 percent of the story takes place within it. Beyond that it’s really hard for me to explain and I’m going to have to work on that so I can talk about it properly when it comes out. But it’s funny and weird and kind of big and crazy despite the mundane setting.”

The protagonist, Katie, is described by O’Malley as “a loveable spaz.”

Normally $25, Amazon is currently selling Seconds for just $20
