Scott Pilgrim remains one of my favorite series of all time, and so the other day when I realized that Bryan Lee O'Malley's first Pilgrim follow-up was finally out I ordered it right the hell away. It's the story of a cook looking to fix some mistakes from her past and gets the chance do to some magic mushrooms (not to be confused with the drug).
I loved the style of this - visually it builds upon what we've seen of him before but there's an additional artistry present that shows his growth. There's a really awesome narration technique that's playful and fun. It's a beautiful and sweet story told with a wink, always aware that it's there to entertain. If you like O'Malley's work from the past this will not disappoint.
