The Vague Possibility Of More Scott Pilgrim, But There's A Brand New Series Of Something Else By Bryan O'Malley First

The Vague Possibility Of More Scott Pilgrim, But There's A Brand New Series Of Something Else By Bryan O'Malley FirstBryan O'Malley answers the question he always gets asked. About more Scott Pilgrim.

I have to be honest, if I was doing a new scott pilgrim book in 2012 I could make a LOT of money and get a LOT of tumblr notes (lol). But listen, I'm really married to the idea that stories have beginnings, middles and ends. I set out to make a story that had an ending. I'm always bummed out by manga that goes on for 30+ volumes and just seems to be going nowhere. I set out to tell the story of Scott and Ramona in this limited scope. I think I was only like partially successful all-around, but I at least accomplished my goal.

If I do more Scott Pilgrim stories in the future, it would have to be a 'new saga' that had a different focus. I've had a few ideas for that, but I don't have any specific plans to return to SP anytime soon, because I want to start a whole new unrelated series. That's my plan for immediately after "Seconds" (which is a stand-alone book).

A whole new unrelated series by Bryan O'Malley. I can hear stores organising midnight launches already.
