Scott Pilgrim Volumes 1, 2 & 3

I began reading Brian Lee O’Malley‘s Scott Pilgrim series just after seeing the film. I enjoyed the film immensely, but with all the buzz the books have received, I was expecting a lot. While I was a bit disappointed in the first volume, I find that I am reassessing the series now that I just finished the third volume. It’s a series crammed with geek and pop culture references, but it does have a lot of focus relationships. It’s a much richer and nuanced experience to read the comics than it is to watch the film, and as I get further in the books I am appreciating the Scott Pilgrim story much more.
