This one doesn’t need an explanation, does it? I don’t think this one needs an explanation.
Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim series. If any comic of recent years earns a place in whatever official canon there may be of downright classic comics, it’s got to be this series, right? A deserved phenomenon, Scott Pilgrim was that rare comic that genuinely just kept getting better and better, with O’Malley’s skill and talent growing with each new release, and he started in a pretty good place (Anyone who liked SP and hasn’t read Lost At Sea, his first book with Oni, you’re really missing out). Just downright comic book awesome? Yeah, Scott Pilgrim definitely fits the bill.
