Review: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life

Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life
Scott Pilgrim's life is totally sweet. He's 23 years old, he's in a rock band, he's "between jobs," and he's dating a cute high school girl. Nothing could possibly go wrong, unless a seriously mind-blowing, dangerously fashionable, rollerblading delivery girl named Ramona Flowers starts cruising through his dreams and sailing by him at parties. Will Scott's awesome life get turned upside-down? Will he have to face Ramona's seven evil ex-boyfriends in battle? The short answer is yes. The long answer is Scott Pilgrim, Volume 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life. 

I've been wanting to read the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels for ages and the upcoming movie made that even more the case. This is definitely one of the best comic books I've read recently, if not ever.

It's funny, quirky - without going overboard - and imaginative. The art work is simple but brilliant. It's not very often I really love the characters in comics but Scott and his friends are actually awesome! Scott thinks he's totally cool but the reality is that he doesn't have a job, he likes two girls - one of which is still in high school -and he shares a bed with his gay roommate, Wallace, as they can't afford another one. Can he really get the amazing Ramona by battling the evil exes?

Here's the trailer for the upcoming movie starring the hot and amazing Chris Evans as one of the evil exes =0P
