We noted the other day that a new art dealer—Felix Comic Art— was offering rarely seen pages from Bryan Lee O’ Malley’s Scott Pilgrim books. Well, the sale is now live and as you can see the pages are flying off the site.
Priced from about $200-500 I would have to say these are a bargain. And while it’s a shame they don’t have any lettering, there are still some fairly iconic pages available. (The above one is still available for $500 as I write this.) Seriously, if I had some spare money I would invest in this. Scott Pilgrim is already a cult book and film, but depending on how Seconds, O’Malley’s follow-up GN due this summer does, he’ll either be the next comics superstar or…merely the author of the zeitgeist comic of the Aughts.
PS: I am told that O’Malley is still on great terms with his previous art dealer, The Beguiling. This is just a matter of making the art available to a wider audience than the more localized store.
