Consider our fight begun

Having seen and fallen in love with the movie, I picked up the firs two books of the Scott Pilgrim series. I tore through them both super quickly. The art has that distinct manga feel, yet I feel less embarrassed to be reading these as opposed to my old Sailor Moons.

"Okay, this might sound vague, but do you know this one girl with hair like this?" 

Scott is twenty-something, no job, in a band, living in a shitty apartment with his gay friend, Wallace. Also he is dating a high schooler. But then he falls for Ramona Flowers.

Getting his shit together enough to date Ramona is one thing, but she comes with her own baggage. Seven evil exes that Scott must defeat in order to be with her.

"this song is for the guy who keeps yelling from the balcony, and it's called 'we hate you, please die." 

The book goes into much more detail than the movies and includes fun things like guitar tabs for Sex Bob-Omb songs and a recipe for vegan shepard pie.

I think this comic is extremely well put together and I cannot wait to read the rest of them.

Also, hey I am back again. Guess i just don't know how to quit this blog. More updates to come!
