Will he have to face Ramona's seven evil ex-boyfriends in battle? The short answer is yes. The long answer is Scott Pilgrim, Volume 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life.« less
This whole series is awesome. It's like someone managed to condense everything that is awesome about independent music and comics, dried it, turned it into a powder, and laced it with cocaine. If you snort this up your brain nostrils, you will feel a high that lasts for days. Everything old will feel new again, and your underwear will even fit better. Why are you not dropping everything to read this series RIGHT NOW?
You will love this series. You will be totally gay for this series. You will want to take it for romantic picnics and moonlight swims. But the moonlight swims are a bad idea.

Picked up this to get some idea of what the upcoming movie was about. I didn't really enjoy it much; the first half of the book is like a very bad, slow moving sitcom with characters introduced briefly, interacting and then disappearing offstage for a while. The art did not grab me; all the supposedly twenty-somethings look like elementary school students. The plot meanders in no particular direction for a while, then there's a rather large and inexplicably "super" fight scene (Scott is an out of work musician, and suddenly can fight like Batman?!) and then we're done. Pass. The movie looks like fun, though.
