Scott Pilgrim is a graphic novel about a 23 year old jobless bass player who is dating a high school girl until he meets the girl of his dreams. He has reoccurring dreams about a girl rollerblading through his life and after finally meeting her in person, discovers he has to battle her seven evil exes in order to win her over and possibly live happily ever after.
I like the play on characters names such as Young Neil which has to be a reference to Neil Young since he’s Canadian and the story takes place in Canada and Stephen Stills, the talent of the band. It’s a humorous look at the pitfalls of growing up, playing in bands, friendships and relationships. Volume 2 also includes a recipe for vegan Sheppard’s pie which I totally want to try.
