Review: Seconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley

SecondsSeconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We all wish we had do-overs, right? The chance to rethink our actions and explore a "what if"?

Katie mysteriously gets that opportunity in Seconds, with the help of a house spirit and some strange mushrooms. She works and lives above a restaurant, is striving to open one of her own, and is a little frustrated in her love life. At first, having a do-over in case of emergencies is great. However, the temptation to explore the possibilities and alternative timelines becomes too much, and things become really weird really quick.

I loved this. My husband had to beg me not to stay up all night reading from it. My hat is off to O'Malley for creating a cool but funny female main character who's not a teenager. Not that I don't love YA graphic just rarely see female characters my age with realistic issues in comics. I really connected with her career frustrations and snarkiness. It was refreshing for me to see a character my own age.

It's been a while since I read Scott Pilgrim, and while I really enjoyed it (hilarious series), I gotta say I liked Seconds even better. Can't wait for any and all future works by O'Malley.
