UK – Scott Pilgrim Signing

BRYAN LEE O’MALLEY signs the sixth and final title in the massively popular Scott Pilgrim series: SCOTT PILGRIM’S FINEST HOUR at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8JR on Tuesday 17th August 6 – 7pm.

It’s finally happened! 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 Five? 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!

Bryan Lee O’Malley is an award-winning Canadian cartoonist. He has been working on a series of graphic novels called Scott Pilgrim. He writes the words and draws the pictures.

Catch up with how the story began in the motion picture SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD!
