The 6th and final volume in the critically acclaimed series is coming out July 20th! Of this very year! You can best believe it’s going to rock-ultimate!
We here at the Outhouse are massive fans of Byran Lee O’Malley’s epic Scott Pilgrim series, and have been waiting for aaages for an announcement on when the 6th book will be coming out, and now we have a release date, and a name, Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour will be released on July the 20th 2010. Here’s what Oni’s press release says:
Six years, five volumes, and 1,000 pages. Now the long anticipated finale to Bryan Lee OâMalleyâs hit Oni Press graphic novel series has finally arrived. On Tuesday, July 20th, 2010 comic shops and bookstores across North America will celebrate the release of SCOTT PILGRIM VOL. 6: SCOTT PILGRIMâS FINEST HOUR.
âItâs been quite a ride, and I couldnât have gotten here without the support of the fans and the retailers,â said OâMalley. âIt feels great to be in the home stretch, and I think this is going to be the best Scott Pilgrim book ever!â
Bryan Lee OâMalley and the SCOTT PILGRIM series have both been honored with multiple awards including the Harvey, Doug Wright, Joe Shuster, and National Cartoonists Society Reuben awards, in addition to being named Entertainment Weekly and Wizard Magazineâs Independent Comic of the Year. Series Editor and Oni Press Editor-in-Chief James Lucas Jones gave additional praise to OâMalley, âitâs been an honor working with Bryan over the years. Heâs got such a unique voice and Iâve been fortunate to witness him develop a style unlike anyone working in the industry today; a style that I feel will influence many future generations of comic professionals. Iâm so proud that Oni has been a part of that.â
Oni Press will be rolling out a series of event announcements in the weeks and months leading up to the release, including Bryan Lee OâMalley signings at this yearâs sold out San Diego Comic Con. Oni Press Publisher Joe Nozemack said about the works, âIâm convinced that Scott Pilgrim will go down as one of those series that changed comics forever. When Iâm out and see someone wearing a Scott Pilgrim t-shirt or sitting in a cafe reading one of the books, I get so excited about comics entering the mainstream and to know that Oni Pressâ books are helping lead the way, itâs an indescribable feeling. I canât wait to see the reaction to the final volume!â
Bryan Lee OâMalleyâs SCOTT PILGRIM VOL. 6: SCOTT PILGRIMâS FINEST HOUR, is published by Oni Press and features 248 pages of evil-ex butt-kicking in the easily digestible digest format for the low, low price of $11.99. Available at your local comic shop or bookstore Tuesday, July 20th, 2010.
I for one, can’t bloody wait! But I will also be a Sad Panda when there’s no more Scott Pilgrim books to look forward to. Happiness is bitter-sweet my friends.
