Ones To Watch 22/07/2010

Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour

The series is about 23-year-old Canadian Scott Pilgrim, a slacker, hero, and part-time bassist who is living in Toronto and plays bass guitar in the band "Sex Bob-Omb." He falls in love with American delivery girl Ramona V. Flowers, but must defeat her seven "evil exes" in order to date her. By now most people have probably heard this has been adapted into a movie by Edgar Wright starring the ever-awkward Michael Cera and is bound to be one of the smash hits of the year.

The reason for the ones to watch article is to point readers in the direction of books that are either new or are easily accessible jumping on points. Now you might say that this is far from that. This is volume six in a series of books that has been running since 2004 so its not exactly new or easily accessible but it will be. This is because tomorrow you should go out and buy volumes one to six and you’ll read each and every single book one after another.

This is one of the best and most fun comic books out there written and drawn by Bryan Lee O'Malley this is a project of love and dedication and it really does show from the quality of the books.

True Blood Issue 1

Alan Ball’s hit HBO series, the sensually sizzling story of the lives and loves of vampires, mind readers ,and all manner of creatures, comes to IDW! Blood and sex mix on a hot rainy night at Merlotte's, when Sookie and her friends are trapped by a vengeful spirit who feeds on shame. People die and dirty secrets are revealed as Sookie, Bill, Eric, Sam, Tara, Jason, and Lafayette and are all coerced to dig deep and tell painful memories from their past—those things we all have locked within us that we never tell another living soul! Bon Temps, Louisiana has never been stranger, or more twisted, in a story co-plotted by TRUE BLOOD series creator Alan Ball, with a script by David Tischman (Bite Club) and Mariah Huehner, and lush art by David Messina (Star Trek: Countdown).

Spin off book’s rarely live up to the quality of the original pieces and are more aimed at completists than anything else. This though could be something different as one of the minds behind the TV series has helped with the plot of the story, which could lead into a close link between the two.

This could be a away for people who are curious about the show to be introduced to one of the best shows on television and as new creatures and characters are being introduced and expanded on in this comic fans of the show should definitely be keeping their eye on this series.
