Wallace Wells is the roommate of the main character, Scott Pilgrim. He is described as Scott’s “cool gay rommate” and is 25 years old. Scott is 23. They share a bed (though Scott is straight) and live in Toronto. Scott says that he’s “between jobs” and his friends think he’s a freeloader, but he thinks Wallace is a nice guy, which is why Wallace is putting him up at his place. The comic is really funny, the ‘amateur’ style based off of manga-style is done by choice, not by lack of talent and the comic has been well received by critics for it’s simplicity, but well-expressed emotions in that simplicity of artistic skill. It also has “strong characterization and convincing dialogue.”
Wallace first appears and is confirmed gay in Scott Pilgrim vol 1.
