Seconds - Bryan Lee O’Malley

Seconds does not capture the frenetic sugar rushes of O’Malley’s acclaimed Scott Pilgrim series, but the Canadian author opts for more of a slow burn here…if Pilgrim was a coming-of-age story, Seconds is an “of-age-now-what?” tale. O’Malley’s art has evolved along with his themes, with some truly breathtaking splash panels, and while some characters fall terribly flat (the protagonist’s love interest in particular), his dialogue and style remains top-notch. O’Malley delivers a compelling and often-eerie story, and I’ve gone back to Seconds for thirds.
