Description from author's site:
WHO THE HELL IS SCOTT PILGRIM AND WHY THE HELL SHOULD I CARE?

Scott Pilgrim is a 23-year-old guy living in the big city with his gay roommate, just trying to make his way in this crazy world.

Scott Pilgrim likes the new girl in town, Ramona Flowers, but to win her heart, he has to defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends. Wait, what?

Scott Pilgrim is named after a song by the late great 90's all-girl Canadian indie rock band, Plumtree.

Scott Pilgrim is a critically acclaimed, award-winning series of graphic novels by Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O'Malley. There will be six volumes in all published by Oni Press.

My thoughts:
In-a-word: Rollerblades
For the first in a series it started out well for me. A fun read with dream sequences, rock-n-roll and a start of a romance. The artwork is manga style with the big eyes which make the character so cute. Unlike manga you can read it from front to back. I will definitely continue with the series.

Movie News from MTV:
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is scheduled to hit theaters in 2009 and features Michael Cera as the title character, Alison Pill in a yet-to-be-announced role (though she’s expected to play Kim Pine), Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells, Chris Evans as Lucas Lee, Brandon Routh as Todd Ingram, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona Flowers, and a variety of other young, up-and-coming actors.

  1. I've just seen what you are currently reading.
    "... you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village .." It sounds remarkably like The Village. Is it?

  2. Regarding the quote, there is a "village" in the story and outside of the village is danger... zombies.
