Scott Pilgrim vs The World

by

Following on from Monday’s post about all the great graphic novels and manga you can find in the library, I have to recommend the best comic series I’ve found lately. 

Scott Pilgrim is a 23 year old unemployed band member living in Toronto, fighting (literally) for the love of his life Ramona Flowers.  The catch?  Ramona has seven evil ex boyfriends who have formed a League of Evil Ex Boyfriends and Scott must fight them all in order to date her.  This series is very funny and action packed. If you ever wanted to see a multi level ninja style battle in a public library, volume 2 is the way to go.  I suggest reading them in order so that you can follow the plot (which is slightly more complicated than I’ve said – but hey there should be some surprises), but most of all I just suggest you read them, you’ll be glad you did.  Scott Pilgrim is written by Bryan Lee O’Malley and we have four of the five volumes available in the library (volume 5 is on order), you can request them through the catalogue.

Scott Pilgrim is also making the trek to the big screen in the next year or so.  Filming for the movie version began in March 2009.  It stars Michael Cera (Juno) and is directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz).
