    Its a pretty amazing series, with a pretty simple story line.
    I'd say if you wanted to read it, best deal right now is:
    Check it out.

    Too bad you missed when they offered all the Scott Pilgrim books for $5 each on Amazon a few weeks ago. But yes, the comic is pretty good, I really can appreciate all the nice little references, in-jokes, and callbacks throughout the series.

    I want to see it just for the Rickenbacker bass. Lol.

    It's out on DVD and stuff, right?

    I really didn't see anything too spectacular about the books. They're pretty much a guy's equivalent to Twilight in that respect I guess. Take away the in-jokes and the video game references and you just have a sappy love story.

    Great series of books there, and the movie was very true to the books. I was impressed at how I liked the movie compared to the fact I hate Cera as an actor.

    Knives is easily one of the most adorable Asian characters I've ever known.

    I can never look at Wallace the same way again after watching the movie.

    Terrible choice of an actor.

    But you should of read the books first before watching the movie, it makes it more enjoyable.
