Scott Pilgrim Pre-Premiere Signing – Wednesday 18th August 4:30pm – 6:30pm

How’s this for some breaking news? We’ve just confirmed a signing with the screaming-fangirl-worthy Bryan Lee O’Malley! He’ll be in town for the premiere of the hotly anticipated Scott Pilgrim film which just so happens to coincide with the release of the final volume and finest hour of the ridiculously popular series.

It's finally here... six years and almost one thousand pages have all led to this epic finale! With six of Ramona's seven evil exes dispatched, it should be time for Scott Pilgrim to face Gideon Graves, the biggest and baddest of her former beaus. But didn't Ramona take off at the end of Book 5? Shouldn't that let Scott off the hook? Maybe it should, maybe it shouldn't, but one thing is for certain -- all of this has been building to Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour!

If you’ve not yet jumped on board we’ve got all five previous volumes in the shop right this very second. The sixth volume will be in our (and your) hot little hands very, very soon.

'Funny, clever, sad, stupid, fantastic, heartbreaking, surreal, confusing and brilliant, just like real life.'
- Eddie Argos

O’Malley will be shooting off to be famous on the red carpet as soon as the bell strikes 6:30pm. We can’t keep him any longer and no matter how hard we try we can’t make time bendy. Please get there early, folks!

(This also means we won’t be able to take signed book requests, alas.)

In the unlikely event you’re doing something better or more important on Wednesday the 18th you’ll be delighted to know you’ve got a second option. Our friends in the (further) North, the esteemed Page 45, get their turn with Mr O’Malley on Monday the 16th of August. You’re advised not to bring along evil ex-boyfriends or girlfriends because Page 45 don’t want no fightin’ in their joint.

Whatever you do, don’t get these dates mixed up. We’re bad with tears and we won’t be able to make it better. So once more with feeling:

Wednesday, 18th August, 4:30pm – 6:30pm

Monday, 16th August, 5pm – 7pm.

All clear? See you there!
