Scott Pilgrim: Precious Little Life
Scott, graduated, jobless, member of a band, is dating a high school girl, much to the concern of his roommate and bandmates. They met on a bus, he helped her with her dropped books... but he's not quite sure about the relationship -- and then he sees (at the library!) Ramona Flowers, a fashionable, tough, roller-blading delivery girl. And he sets out to get her. Little does he know that in order to date her, he will have to fight off her 7 evil ex-boyfriends -- and win against them and their extra powers!
I've been waiting for this in book format for months now -- and though I've only read volume 1 (we have 1, 2, &3), I'm checking out the others soon. It's all about Scott's basically boring life turing inside out when he meets a girl. Sounds typical, and yet there are just enough blips of abnormality... it's so much fun and a bit off-kilter.
