Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Scott Pilgrim is 23 years old, lives in a cold, unnamed Canadian town, plays bass in a band called Sex Bob-Omb and has a very cute 17-year-old Chinese-Canadian girlfriend, Knives Chau. His "precious little life" is amiably unstructured, and he drifts, happily unemployed, between band practice and time spent with Knives. His relationship with Knives is chaste—walks, chats and hugs—although Knives is getting bigger ideas. "We haven't even held hands," Scott explains. "It's just nice, you know." But then he starts having dreams about Ramona Flowers, a mysterious, equally cute and perfectly legal hipster chick on Rollerblades who delivers books for Amazon.com. Ramona is anything but simple, and O'Malley's tale of adorable slackers in love is transformed into a wildly magically manga–kung fu fantasy adventure. We meet the first of Ramona's seven evil ex-boyfriends, Matthew Patel, who challenges Scott and his band to a supernatural martial arts duel right out of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. O'Malley has crafted a delightfully hybrid comics love story. It's an alt-lit, rock 'n' roll graphic novel with wonderful manga-influenced drawing and a comically mystical plot that manages to capture both the genuine intimacies and serial dishonesties of young love.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good! June 20 2009
By Steve M
I picked this up for the following reasons. I found out they're making it into a film staring the always hilarious Michael Cera. I thought it would be cool to actually read something before it became a film. It takes place in my home town of Toronto (the author is from there). I'm not a comic book/graphic novel guy but have always been curious. I figured this was a good start.

I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed volume 1 and I'm really looking forward to reading the remaining 3. The characters and story are fun with a good bit of edge to them and the artwork is very unique and humourous. I will say this though, it is a very quick read. I'm a slow reader and I read it in under 2 hours.

One thing I am skeptical about is how well this can be adapted into a film. It seems like it would be an interesting, if not impossible challenge to properly translate this onto the big screen. I can't wait to find out!

shipped really fast and in perfect condition.

read in one hour. I bought the first one, but I figured it would be better to read them at the library for free.
