Scott Pilgrim is 24 without a care in the world.  'In between' jobs, dating a high school girl and in a band...how can life get any better?  Until Ramona Flowers starts skating through his dreams.  Then life gets a little complicated for a guy who is about as uncomplicated as you can get.  When he falls for Ramona and convinces her to go out with him he finds out if he wants to keep her he's got to fight all of her exes!  Is he up to the task?

Scott Pilgrim is hilarious!  I love the video game background that pops up every now and then.  Scott is an idiot, but he's a lovable idiot.  The supporting cast of characters are awesome.  They're almost better in the story than Scott!  I'm pretty sure I'd read a book about Kim.

There's always a couple of lines in each book that give me a chuckle out loud moment.  For instance, trying (against her better judgement) to help Scott find a job, Kim says to him 'Scott, if your life had a face, I would punch it.  I would punch your life in the face.'  Later on, Stephen Stills tells Scott, 'Scott, if you life had a face, I would punch it in the balls.  Seriously.'

Cute little one-liners that get me every time.  I haven't seen the movie, wanted to wait until I finally got around to reading these, but now that I have I'm not all that interested in seeing Michael Cera is Scott, but maybe I'll change my mind later on.  Right now I'm just going to enjoy the magna-influenced Scott.
