Bryan Lee O’Malley’s next graphic novel is ‘Worst World’

Planned trilogy by the creator of ‘Scott Pilgrim’ focuses on two new characters in Los Angeles.

Just as the Snotgirl ongoing series debuts this week by Bryan Lee O’Malley with artist Leslie Hung, Entertainment Weekly reveals more details on O’Malley’s next graphic novel, coming at an undisclosed date from Ballantine Books.

Titled Worst World, the story is set in Los Angeles and stars Benny and Aubrey in the first of a planned trilogy of 300+ page graphic novels. O’Malley will team with his partners from Seconds, including art assistant Jason Fischer and colorist Nathan Fairbairn. EW notes it will include “some more of the punk rock music and aesthetic that has influenced O’Malley’s work since Scott Pilgrim.”

No release date was mentioned, but O’Malley will have 50 prints of the promo image (below) at Comic-Con International this week as part of a ticketed signing. Click here for details.
