How do you follow up a juggernaut like “Scott Pilgrim?” Six volumes, a major motion picture, tons of awards… the task of coming up with the next thing after that has to be a daunting one. But after 4 years, O’Malley answered that question with “Seconds,” an OGN about a young restaurateur given the chance to fix the mistakes of the past with the help of some magic mushrooms. Sounds like just the thing you’d expect from O’Malley, right? It is…and it isn’t. Mike & Greg take a look at the latest work from this cartoonist and his assembled team to find out if this book, like any great meal, is worth coming back to for more.
