Valentine’s Day is almost here and in honour of a holiday celebrating love, here’s a list of couples in love from comics we love. Major Spoilers presents you with Top 5 Comic Book Couples!
Scott Pilgrim vol.1 was one of the first comic form stories that I ever read (thanks to a recommendation from Stephen) and I have loved the property ever since then, so when I stumbled upon Pilgrim art today I had to share.

Artist doing popular characters in ways that we aren’t use to viewing them is one of the best parts about deivantART. Today’s spotlight is on Lucas C.S. who has given recognizable characters a de-aging potion and sent them back a few years. Scorpion, Ramona, Aang, and, just for Stephen, Batman are right after the jump.

The digital coloring is by the Shuster Award-nominated artist Nathan Fairbairn, the colorist for Batman Incorporated and Swamp Thing, and the whole thing is capped with a new cover from O’Malley.
Over the years comics have given us a staggering number of alternate realities, many of them just thinly veiled excuses to put our favorite superheroes into improbable situations with minimum clean-up. But sometimes alternate realities and alternate futures yield something more, sometimes they accomplish exactly what they should; to allow us to examine a character under a different light. What follows is a list of the best, most successful or so-ridiculous-they-come-back-out-the-other-side-and-are-cool-again characters from alternate dimensions or futures. To make it on this list a character had to be A) interesting B) be from the same company or creator that owns
Press Release Inventive visuals, endearing performances and a genre-smashing style define Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the critically acclaimed, action-comedy coming to Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD November 9th from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. In the movie, cutting-edge filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) directs Michael Cera (Juno, Superbad) and an incredible ensemble cast in the story of a charming, unemployed bass player who discovers that in order to date the girl of his dreams, he must first battle her seven super-powered, evil exes.
According to Oni Press, there are over one million copies of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim series in print throughout North America. “A million copies in print is a stunning achievement,” said Kuo-Yu Liang, head of Diamond Book Distributors. “It’s great watching Scott Pilgrim and Oni Press grow over the years.” The Scott Pilgrim series first hit shelves in 2004 and has since gone from an indie sensation to a New York Times bestseller and most recently adapted by Universal Studios into a major motion picture, directed by Edgar Wright and starring Michael Cera. “All this for a little black

This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the Major Spoilers crew takes a look at the sixth and final installment of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim series. It’s finally here! Six years and almost 1000 pages have all led to this epic finale! With six of Ramona’s seven evil exes dispatched, it should be time for Scott Pilgrim to face Gideon Graves, the biggest and baddest of her former beaus. But didn’t Ramona take off at the end of Book 5? Shouldn’t that let Scott off the hook? Maybe it should, maybe it shouldn’t, but one thing is for certain
