‘Scott Pilgrim’ Levels Up to Full-Color Hardcover Reprints [ECCC]

This evening at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, Washington, Bryan Lee O’Malley announced that his hugely acclaimed and best-selling Scott Pilgrim, a six-volume black and white graphic novel series from Oni Press, will be reissued as a deluxe, resized, full-color hardcover series beginning this year. The new coloring comes courtesy of Nathan Fairbairn, known to ComicsAlliance readers for his excellent work with Chris Burnham on Batman, Incorporated, among other high profile titles. The original black and white digests will not be discontinued.

“Everybody loves Bryan’s black-and-white artwork,” series editor James Lucas Jones explained in a press release, “but after seeing the few color stories he did with Scott and the gang, it was hard to avoid imagining a ‘what if?’ scenario. Now those wild dreams have come true. And to have one of the best colorists in the industry at the helm, that just seals the deal.”

“It’s been eight years since the first Scott Pilgrim book was published,” Oni marketing director Cory Casoni added. “Since then, the series has seen over twenty first reprints of the original format, with over a million copies of the first volumes sold. Scott Pilgrim Color Hardcover, Volume 1 takes the familiar story from the original Scott Pilgrim series and gives it a new look. Plus it includes previously unpublished extras and bonus materials making this mighty tome one that’s required reading for Scottaholics everywhere!”

Each new Scott Pilgrim hardcover will measure 6″ x 9″, feature a new cover by O’Malley, and come with supplemental and never-before-published materials. Volume 1, Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life, will go on sale in August with volume 2 to follow in October. The remaining Scott Pilgrim hardcovers will be published bi-annually and retail for $24.99.
