Today, in celebration of the eleventh (or was it tenth?) epic anniversary of Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, the Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group, and the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc) are coming together to bring fans of the cult classic comic series and Edgar Wright film an exclusive limited-edition T-shirt designed by Bryan Lee O’Malley.
Ten percent of proceeds will be donated to Binc to support their “Survive to Thrive” campaign, which provides monetary grants to comic book stores negatively impacted by the pandemic. “We are honored to be included in this major anniversary event. Bryan’s generosity will help comic shops across the country as they work to recover from the impact of the pandemic. We continue to be humbled by the comic community’s support and advocacy,” said Pam French, Binc Foundation executive director. From March through December 2020, Binc raised and distributed over $2.9M, helping more than 2,200 book and comic stores and more than 600 individuals.
“Scott Pilgrim has meant so much to its fans and the comics community over the years—from the graphic novels to the movie. Bringing together Bryan’s vision and Binc’s focus in aiding the comics community was a natural fit, and we’re thrilled to work together in giving back to the people who have done so much over the years,” said James Lucas Jones, Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group publisher.
Featuring Ramona Flowers against a black backdrop with her classic star bag, the T-shirt is available for $35 via the Oni Press webstore. Fans of Scott Pilgrim vs The World can preorder the limited edition T-shirt now until 11:59 P.M. PT on May 19, 2021. The shirt will ship by August.
