August Books 30) Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life, by Bryan Lee O'Malley

Since I hardly ever go the cinema, I don't know when I'll see the movie, but I must say I liked the first volume: Scott and all his friends are well-drawn characters, and the sheer insanity of ending the book with the first of Ramona's evil ex-boyfriends duelling with the unfortunate Scott, video-game style, at the scene of an abortive gig is very engaging. I also liked the depiction of the Canadian background, hemmed by by snow to the north and the USA to the south. I wasn't sufficiently charmed to go on about it at great length here, but I was sufficiently charmed to buy another volume.
