The Modern Canadian Classic
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?
Why Read It?
Scott Pilgrim is especially important to us, as it is perhaps the most successful Canadian graphic novel series outside of Canada. Though the series' debut title was written over ten years ago, its comedy and its clever references to classic video games and music still holds up really well today. It can appeal to a lot of different audiences because it's kind of a mash-up of being a comedy, action, and romance story, and it does just enough in each to keep fans of those genres interested.
