Bryan Lee O'Malley will make his first foray into monthly comics with Snotgirl from Image Comics this summer. Snotgirl tells the story of Lottie, a fashion blogger and Internet star who looks flawless online, but is plagued by allergies offline that leave her dripping with snot. The series is written by the Scott Pilgrim creator and illustrated by newcomer Leslie Hung, and was recently teased in the first issue of Image+. Now Image has released a small preview of the first issue, as well as two covers by O'Malley and Hung.

I'm intrigued to see where the story goes. O'Malley is no stranger to the business of fame himself, having seen his Scott Pilgrim series adapted for the big screen. He no doubt has a bunch of intriguing thoughts about the current age of social media celebrity that we live in. And if Hung's sharp, poppy work here, coupled with the bright sheen of colorist Mickey Quinn, is any indication, she's the perfect artist to balance the grotesequery and glamour that the story demands.
