8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Kirshenblatt on Sept. 24 2010
Format: Paperback
I first encountered the Scott Pilgrim series a few years ago and, to be honest, didn't think much of them at the time: mostly because -- on the surface anyway -- it seemed like a story about rock-stars fighting evil exes. It wasn't something that really appealed to me at the time and I suspect that at that time, I wouldn't have gotten as much out of the series as I have now.

A few years later, the film came out and I heard that it was an "epic of epic epicness" from quite a few people. Then I was told that there were quite a few video game references in that world. This got my attention because while the books' references to popular and independent (or indie) music escaped me, classic and vintage style video games were and definitely something I can relate to: something I grew up with.

I watched the film and was very impressed, but I was told that the books were in some ways even better. I like to read the comics that comic book movies are inspired from, so I eventually picked up all six of these books on my own. So what can I tell you without spoilers?

Scott Pilgrim has a few things in it that I can really relate to. For one thing, I am Canadian and I live in Toronto so there were a lot of places and elements -- like the TTC subways, streetcars, and buses -- that I could really relate to and it was a blast to see a fantasy-adventure romantic comedy with video game references taking place in a city I've gotten to know.

I also feel like the books really appeal to a certain generation: both the generation that saw the rise of video games as we know them, and the people who grew up during the times of the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega.

These books are a hilarious. If you like the movie, you'll like the books, and if you like the books, you'll love the movie. If you're not Canadian, a few of the references will fall short, but the comedy is still there.
I actually saw the movie first, and then read the series...I think the casting for the film is brilliant. It was easy to see the characters come to life in the comic after that. Only down side is the individual volumes are a quick read.

These books were very creative and AWESOME. If anyone likes comic and video games (who doesn't these days), they will like these books. Most of the comic's video game references will not be recognized by a lot of younger people but that doesn't take away from the story. This is a must own.

I purchased the box set for a birthday gift. It arrived early and was exactly what was wanted. Good selection, had all the books I was looking for and an excellent price. Good bargain!

I would definitely recommend buying all 6 Scott Pilgrim books. The story is funny and interesting. Each evil ex is unique and well developed. I also love that the story takes place in Canada. As someone who doesn't usually read comics, I found the books hard to put down. The supporting characters in the books are amazing. Anyone who is a fan of the movie will definitely enjoy the books. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World lives up to its hype.

It doesn't come with a poster as advertised, at least from the person I bought it from. But the story that Brian Lee O'Malley tells here is damn great, full of funny jokes, creative comic design, and an awesome story. This series has so much damn heart to it. I highly recommend you check this out if you're a fan of video games, anime, and love stories.

This series is fantastic, no doubt about that.

I saw the movie first, as I 'm sure a lot of people did, and the books are a whole lot better.

Very funny, good characters, and consistently interesting - the only downside is that it is possible to read a whole book in only an hour or two.
