Pilgrim's progress: At Peiratikos, Rose and Steven sit down with creator Bryan Lee O'Malley, of Scott Pilgrim and Lost at Sea fame:

"... [T]he plan has been all along to make Scott’s life kind of like a video game of your actual life, but I wanted to ground it very firmly in reality for the first hundred pages, pretending nothing’s out of the ordinary. I want the characters to be real. I want it to be fun and surreal and reminiscent of your favourite videogames and manga, but I want it to ring truer. (More truly?) Really, I’m probably just in this to trick people."
