I have never been much of a comic man myself, often choosing to favor literature. However, I've found myself on a serious comic kick, and the Pilgrim comics are some of the first I've picked up thus far. This first little volume, Precious Little Life, offers plenty to the reader. There's plenty of humor and charm within the characters. The banter is witty and effortless. The illustrations are well drawn and, fortunately, don't take themselves seriously. The characters are almost always likable, and by the end of these comics, guys will want to find their own Ramona Flowers. Scott is your typical young adult who goes through the vanilla trials and tribulations of a modern man, with a twist. His friends offer little in the way of support, instead choosing witty banter to somehow make Scott feel better. Even the bad guy is a decent character, even if we don't see very much of him. All in all, Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life is a great start to a fantastic series. It takes less than an hour to read, but it's well worth it.

I'm not a big graphic novel person. I feel like graphic novels are usually too quick, and they leave me wanting more. I can appreciate the effort that goes into the artwork and what not, I've just never really connected with this. But I really wanted to read the Scott Pilgrims graphic novels. I love this franchise and I needed to see how it compared to the movie. Hey guys guess what? Scott Pilgrim is pretty fantastic. The dialogue is basically what you would expect. Scott's life is massively not-put-together. He's dating a high schooler (he's 23), he lives with his best friend (who owns everything in their apartment except one "lame poster"). His little sister has a better job than him (Scott is "between jobs"). Scott's life just isn't going well. There's a lot of conversation about how Scott's life seems to be derailed. Scott, unsurprisingly, sees nothing wrong with the way things are going. In the discussion of Scott's utter failure to LIFE, I really like Kim. Kim is the band's drummer ("WE ARE SEX BA-BOMBS!") and she has no problem telling it like it is. This book isn't going to win any brownie points for intriguing philosophical discussion. But it's fun. And also Scott is so stupid you have to feel a bit anxious for him. The artwork is simple and subtly clever. One thing I really appreciated about this novel is that the artwork isn't overwhelming. You get some graphic novels with all sorts of shading and line art and it's really difficult to focus because chaos surrounds you. With Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life, that's not a concern. Additionally, I really enjoyed the subtle nuances that Bryan Lee O'Malley included in the artwork? In-drawing footnotes and even chords to the Sex Ba-Bomb's first song can be found if you search hard enough. And, of course, he's constantly making fun of the lameness of Scott's existence. This book is short and quick. Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life definitely did not satiate my need for a bigger, deeper book. The story line ends right after Scott fights Matthew Patel - the first evil ex. The closest thing we get to closure is Ramona explaining herself. I wanted more. Fortunately I have all the books, so I can plug on, but I think I would have been massively frustrated if I had to wait a year for volume two.

Hadn't heard of this until after seeing the movie. In that, it was awesome. Finally got to reading this, having seen it on the shelves one day. And was in the mood for a short read. This one was not only awesome, but fun, quirky, strange and that artwork was also really good. And the game looked good too.

I fell in love with this book while I was reading this. The characters are so great and funny. The story is very strange, but I was lost in this and i was really happy to be lost in the magic.

I heard about the movie scott pilgrim vs the world. And I also heard it was a comic book... I searched for the comic book and Instantly fell in love with the characters and the plot! I wanna see the movie now and finish the rest of the series. Also I heard kick ass was a comic book too after I finish this series I will read that one. OMG SCOTT PILGRIM IS ONE OF THE BEST COMIC BOOKS I'VE EVER READ!! IT GOES IN #1 FOR ME. Will definitely buy the next couple books.
