SCOTT PILGRIM VOL. 2-5
by Bryan Lee O’Malley

So I am all caught up on the Scott Pilgrim books (the last one is hopefully being released sometime in 2010, before the movie comes out) and let me tell you, they are the absolute bee’s knees.

If you are a fan of, oh I don’t know…Hilarious dialogue, epic ninja battles, Canadian things, relationship drama, and awesomeness, then do yourself a favour and CHECK THESE OUT!

For serious everyone, if you read these and don’t like them, I will somehow reimburse you for your time in the form of either high-fives, candy or toll booth tokens.

Also, check out PUNK ROCK AND TRAILER PARKS by Derf for something equally as awesome and hilarious but in a totally different way.

SCOTT PILGRIM’S PRECIOUS LITTLE LIFE, VOLUME 1
by Bryan Lee O’Malley

Okay, listen up. The Scott Pilgrim graphic novels are one of the best things that I have ever read. EVER, Mr. Brough? YES, EVER!

I don’t want to spoil anything, so here is a very brief synopsis:

Scott Pilgrim is 23 years old, playing bass in a band, dating a high school girl named Knives and living in an apartment with his boy-crazy friend Wallace. Everything is fine and dandy in Scott’s world until he meets the uber-mysterious rollerblading American, Ramona Flowers. Throw in a random, threatening e-mail, a rival band called Crash and the Boys, and a pretty funny fistfight and you have volume 1 of the Scott Pilgrim series.

The book is a very fast read, full of funny jokes (both written and visual) and the action never slows down. I can’t recommend this book enough to anyone who likes awesome things. So come on in and check them out!
