    Cauldron cakes make you fat?!

    What if Harry Potter had been adapted from a Bryan Lee O'Malley graphic novel instead of J.K. Rowling's epic saga? We'd probably have gotten a series of films that look something like this. I'm in Lovegoods with this trailer.

    Winter Is Coming

    This week's "DUH!" moment comes to us courtesy of A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. Fans of his work know he's notoriously slow when it comes to writing, and Martin himself has copped to it, but with the HBO television series now in full swing, there's a new concern. Will Martin's novels be finished or will the show catch up before he's done? Hear what he had to say about it after the jump.

  8. Scott Pilgrim is Back in Glorious Full Color

    Here's something that will make you feel old: Scott Pilgrim Vol. 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life came out eight years ago. Created by Bryan Lee O'Malley, the comic series was a great success, landing the character a feature film. However, O'Malley's art has remained in the original black and white in the subsequent reprints of the books. That will be changing this August when Oni Press debuts a color edition of the books called the Scott Pilgrim Color Hardcover, which is pretty much just what it sounds like.

  9. Your Fears About Hollywood Overreacting to Scott Pilgrim’s Bad Box Office May Be Justified

    With a weekend box office of $10.5 million, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which cost about $60 million to make, had the alarmingly bad opening that fans feared it would. While a few (generally older) critics slammed it, it was really a stellar movie, and one needn't have read the graphic novels it's based on (I didn't) to appreciate it.

    There are plenty of theories as to why such a buzzed-about, well-marketed, solid movie performed as weakly at the box office as it did: CinemaBlend surmises that it existed in a no-man's land, with people above 30 not 'getting' it, but people too far below 30 not 'getting' the retro gaming references either; it being a geek movie that most geeks don't actually relate to ("This is a movie about a slacker musician whose biggest problem is choosing which of the two hot girls he's dating he most wants to sleep with"); and, lastly, the 'everyone hates Michael Cera' hypothesis, which I don't entirely buy, but which is widespread enough that it has to be based on some reality.

    In some respects, it doesn't matter why; what matters is the aftermath. Hollywood's backlash against 'geek' properties without a hit-you-over-the-head mainstream hook could be just as bad as we fear.

  11. Ramona Flowers’ Mysterious Past Exposed [Scott Pilgrim]

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead spoke to io9 at Comic Con, and explained that comic creator Bryan Lee O'Malley provided actors of the upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs. the World adaptation ten facts about their characters neither in the books nor the film. For her character Ramona Flowers, the girlfriend of the titular protagonist, many of the facts were about her pre-Toronto life. io9 was only able to coax one fact from Winstead, though it's quite an enlightening one. Highlight for the kicker: Ramona's younger brother died when she was younger, and she wears a shoelace around her neck in memory of him. (via io9)

  14. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Poster: First Look

    I will confess that I haven't actually read Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, despite its appearance on seemingly every "indie comics you must read" list published after 2005; the series and its universe of references sound spot on, but I've just never gotten around to it. Maybe when it comes out on the iPad?

    But: the poster for Scott Pilgrim has just made its way onto the Internet, courtesy of, and already the movie and comics communities are bursting into geekish cheers of excitement. Larger version after the jump, along with plot synopsis:
