Scott Pilgrim Vol. 1

Written by: Art by: Bryan Lee O'Malley Genre: Action/Romantic Comedy/Fantasy Publisher: Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Release Year: 2019 Length: 334 pages

Scott Pilgrim wants Ramona Flowers to be his girlfriend. However, she's got baggage in the form of seven evil exes, all of whom Scott must defeat to win her heart! The first two are Matthew Patel (and his demon hipster girls) and Lucas Lee (movie star famous for... skateboarding?). Can Scott focus long enough to take them out?

"Stitches together indie-rock attitude, video game logic, and romantic longing... a hilarious, idiosyncratic gem."

The Washington Post

"Witty, self-aware dialogue and acute observational humor wink from the pages, and the result is an appealing, lighthearted account of a transitional period of life."

The New York Times
