Bryan Lee O'Malley's Oni Press "Scott Pilgrim" sees new deluxe hardcovers starting in August with colors by "Batman Inc's" Nathan Fairbairn. O'Malley talks with CBR about the books, the color and the all-new extras.

In the summer of 2009, comic fans of Bryan Lee O'Malley's acclaimed Oni Press "Scott Pilgrim" graphic novels were invited to see the world of the books in blazing color when the "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" film hit the big screen. This August, that process comes full circle as the publisher prepares an all-new deluxe hardcover editions of the series with color by "Batman, Incorporated" and "Swamp Thing" colorist Nathan Fairbairn.


Oni and O'Malley jointly announced the new 6" X 9" volumes tonight at the Emerald City Comic Con, revealing that after the first book -"Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life" -hits in August, the second color hardcover will land in October. Subsequent books in the series will come out bi-annually until readers can have the full "Scott Pilgrim" saga in color on their shelves by 2014. These new editions will also feature brand-new, DVD-style bonus features prepared by O'Malley. (Read Oni's official PR here)

For more on the story, CBR News spoke with O'Malley about turning the books to color and preparing the bonus content. Below, the artist talks about his initial reluctance to take the comics out of their manga-inspired format, how Fairbairn's work won him over, what new art he's been preparing for both this series and his upcoming "Seconds" graphic novel and more!
