RedEye designer Trent J. Koland made the cover image of Kanye, which happens to look a lot like the cover of Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life, the first book in O’Malley’s popular graphic novel series. O’Malley took to Twitter and wrote, “this is both an honor and an outrage: chicago redeye portrays kanye west as a scott pilgrim ripoff for no reason.”
I think this is what it means to be in the right place at the right time: I happened to scan my Twitter page when O’Malley posted his thoughts on RedEye‘s cover. The rest is at the A.V. Club Chicago.
