Exciting comics event coming up! Renowned cartoonist Bryan Lee O'Malley will be at Librairie Drawn & Quarterly to launch his new graphic novel, Seconds tonight!

Seconds is the highly anticipated new stand-alone, full-colour graphic novel from Bryan Lee O'Malley, author and artist of the hugely bestselling (and Toronto-set) Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series. Seconds is a complex and novelistic story about a young restaurant owner named Katie who, after being visited by a magical apparition, is given a second chance at love and to undo her wrongs. Fans new and old will love O'Malley's bold and quirky style infused with his subtle, playful humour.

Advance praise for Seconds:

“In Seconds, Bryan Lee O’Malley plays the angst of youth against the fabric of larger epics. In doing so, he enriches both. At long last, dear reader, one can dream of heroes and monsters and battles beyond this earth while contemplating the virtues of ‘having a thing’ in the grocery pantry. 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
