Bundled Extra: Bryan Lee O'Malley's Seconds Delayed

The creator Bryan Lee O'Malley announced via a post on his Tumblr-based blog that his Seconds has been pushed back from 2013 and into 2014. This is his follow-up book project to the Scott Pilgrim series and thus evokes interest on a variety of levels: as simply another work from that creator that made the lauded first work, as a potential top-seller, as the next work in O'Malley's career, as a comics effort from Villard, and so on. O'Malley suffered an injury that helped delay the work. I hope he feels better, and I look forward to reading the new book when it's done. The project is described here.

One thing I think is interesting when a book gets pushed back right now is how from a fan's standpoint -- at least from this fan's standpoint -- it's not all that big of a blow considering how much freaking good work is currently published. I'm sure this is specifically crushing for a lot of folks, of course, although not in a way that should make anyone angry. Sometimes things take more time than we think they will.
