his cute, clever, and quirky oddball romantic comedy stars a young slacker and a tough girl. I enjoyed the witty characters but found the silly plot a bit too much.

To date the girl of his dreams (literally: she's been using his subconscious as a shortcut on her delivery route), Toronto slacker Scott Pilgrim must fight her seven evil exes. This hilarious and sweet Western take on shojo freely mixes realism with non sequiturs and videogame elements. The series should be read in order.

Yes, I am also the one of many readers who saw the film before I even heard about the book. I do regret not reading this when it first came out, but I still enjoy it today.

“I remember buying the entire series (up to volume 4 at the time) when I was visiting Toronto. This 6 volume graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O’Mally is a humourous, fun-filled adventure following Scott Pilgrim as he must defeat Ramona’s seven evil ex-boyfriends… all done in video game style. I love this series because it’s totally entertaining, and it’s exactly how I like to live my life: as a non-stop action adventure, gaining life points along the way.

This is freakin' awesome! I've seen commercials about the film adaptation and the still plus poster in person. That was soo amazing, I can't wait to get the hands of the next five sequels which were available now to check out/place on hold.

This comic was one of the best I've ever read. I really liked it, it had alot of humour. And the whole though of Scott pilgrim and Ramona Folwers is just an irresistable couple. O'malley had out done himself, yet again.

An epic adventure of crappy punk music, love, and fighting, this is one of the best things i've ever read. O'Malley's humor is spot-on and in creating Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers, an irresistable couple, he has scored millions of adoring teenage readers.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "The Scott Pilgrim series presents an intimate and authentic view into the world of slacker-dom 20-something youth culture. The eponymous Scott Pilgrim drifts from relationship to relationship and band gig to band gig, all without a job, as he struggles against his own shallowness to find self-respect.

Smart, witty, and full of video game references, Scott Pilgrim is a perfect time capsule of what it means to grow up in a time more concerned with what you consume than how you treat others.

Although a masterwork in its own right, Edgar Wright's film adaptation, titled Scott Pilgrim vs. The World only scratches the surface of the richness of its graphic novel counterparts."

AMAZING GRAPHIC NOVEL! I Love the's quite creative. Definitely not a 'kiddy' book, but no too serious either. Love it.
