So, I won’t lie—I didn’t really have any interest in reading this book until I saw the movie trailer, but I’m so glad I did! Graphic novels aren’t a format I spend a lot of time reading, so it was refreshing to read one that was so clever and engaging. Scott Pilgrim starts dating a stunning, mysterious girl named Ramona Flowers, but she comes with a catch—her 7 evil exes will all insist that he fight them. In this first volume, the reader is introduced to all the crazy characters in Scott’s life, and we see the beginning of Scott & Ramona’s romance. Of course, things aren’t as simple as they seem—Scott is already dating a high school girl named Knives Chau, and his band, Sex Bob-omb is struggling to make it in the local music scene.
