From Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour by Bryan Lee O’Malley.
I love how the central characters acknowledge the flaws in themselves and their relationship yet still choose to stay with each other despite the possibility it won’t work out. The complexity of Scott and Ramona’s relationship is one of the main reasons the comic has such emotional depth.
Plus, the line art is like so tight yo!
Yeah, women are worthy.

THE FASCINATING DEATH OF ARCHIE ANDREWS BREAKS CREATIVE GROUND IN AMERICAN ‘EVENT COMICS’
By Chris Sims
It’s been very interesting to watch Archie Comics transform from a company built on eternally unchanging teenage shenanigans in a peaceful, small town to the culturally progressive company that grabs headlines at every turn with how it’s rebuilding Riverdale for the modern comics reader. But besides the stories that strike chords within contemporary political conversations, it’s been fun seeing just how Archie tackles these “Big Event” elements that we’ve seen in other American comics. I mean, in the world of superheroes, a character’s death (or “death”) has been a rite of passage since the ’70s, but for Archie, it’s entirely new territory. In waiting so long to use these elements, the events not only feel fresh, they’re also built in a much more interesting way than their cape-and-tights counterparts.
Or at least, that’s the case with Archie’s death at the hands of a gunman in the pages of this week’s Life With Archie #36, which isn’t just an evocative and moving story, it’s also one of the most fascinatingly structured comics I’ve ever read.
Every Batman fan should watch this animated short.
