Scott’s Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life: Volume 1 (Scott Pilgrim) Scott Pilgrim’s life is totally sweet.
He’s twenty-three 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’.
"Scott Pilgrim is the best book ever. It is the chronicle of our time. With Kung Fu, so, yeah: perfect." Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
"One of the best things to happen to printed comics this millennium." Ain't It Cool News
"A hilarious, idiosyncratic gem." Washington Post
"A great oddball tale that captures the energy of a generation." Publishers Weekly
"An inventive, genre-tweaking tale of young love, platonic bed-sharing and epic battles unlike anything else you will likely pick up. So, go on, pick it up." E! Online
"Scott Pilgrim is the best 23-year-old ever. Like Proust's Swann, he has a story that takes multiple volumes to unfold, except Pilgrim is even more awesome because he's in a comic book … the series is wildly enjoyable for its absurdist humor, its indelible characters and its growing, inevitable sense of melancholy as Pilgrim becomes that most terrifying of things: 24 years old." Glen David Gold, author of Carter Beats the Devil and Sunnyside
