RedEye designer Trent J. Koland made the cover image of Kanye, which happens to look a lot like the cover of Scott Pilgrimâ€™s Precious Little Life, the first book in Oâ€™Malleyâ€™s popular graphic novel series. Oâ€™Malley took to Twitter and wrote, â€œthis is both an honor and an outrage: chicago redeye portrays kanye west as a scott pilgrim ripoff for no reason.â€
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.
