Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O’Malley

Oh Scott Pilgrim, how you rule all of pop culture.  The brilliant hilarity of everything you stand for.  Your naïve comic prowess altering everything you achieve.  Your sick ninja-like abilities defying everything in your path.

Book and movie alike Scott Pilgrim defeats the world.  The original action, comedy, romance, drama, comic series about a typical Canadian slacker was released 2004-10.  Written by the entertaining Bryan Lee O’Malley.  The story follows Scott through life as he plays with his band Sex Bob-Omb, gets a job, and falls in love.  Along the way battling the seven evil exes of his romantic interest, Ramona Flowers.

Scott is a great every man character as his situations can remind us all of that uncertain stage in life of our early adulthood.  Ramona is my dream girl, and I will affectionately refer to my beautiful partner as ‘my Ramona Flowers’.  All the characters are well done adding their own unique personality to the mix.  The drama of their little world can get so frustrating as they are all so lovable.

The six books are entertaining the whole way through the series.  Full of laughs and adventure, I recommend Scott Pilgrim to anyone looking for a simple, fun, little story to read.

The movie Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was released in 2010 at the end of the book series release.  Tagged as an epic of epic epicness it truly is that and hands down, my favorite comedy movie of all time.  Featuring an amazing rock soundtrack highlighted by the song of Scott Pilgrims namesake by Plumtree.  Hilarious pop culture references peppered all throughout.  And Scotts brilliant wardrobe of t-shirts that make me jealous.  Everything about the movie makes me so happy every time I watch it, which is a ridiculous amount at this point.

The all star cast lead by Micheal Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Scott and Ramona respectively, do a great job of bringing this series to life.  Probably the only film I will admittedly say superseded the books.  One of the greatest comic book movies ever made has something for all of us and everybody needs to see it.

Thanks booknerds as Scott Pilgrim would say ‘I’ll leave you alone forever now’.

    I have to say, I love the look, feel, and layout of your blog. Your writing is incredible and the visual layout is wildly engaging. My only complaint is I feel each time I read one of your posts I end up going to the comic store to buy more stuff! Ahh. the problems of a comic nerd! As someone who’s never read the books (or seen (I know! I’m sorry) the film) I think I have to check it out now.
