The TradeWaiters 37: “Scott Pilgrim” Vol. 1 & 2 by Bryan Lee O’Malley

GET READY! Today we start our three episode “Scott Pilgrimage” as Jon, Jeff, kgros and Jam read the first two volumes of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim. These books changed comics, and they changed each of our panelists. Join us as we talk about video game literacy, female coming-of-age stories, breaking the fourth wall, Can-con, garbage twenty-somethings, and how one of us used to have Bryan Lee O’Malley’s blog as her homepage. Today, today we’re all Scottaholics.
