Scott Pilgrim is a graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O'Malley. It consists of six digest size black-and-white volumes, released between August 2004 and July 2010, by Portland-based independent comic book publisher Oni Press. The series is about 23-year-old Canadian Scott Pilgrim, a slacker and part-time musician who lives in Toronto and plays bass guitar in the band "Sex Bob-omb." He falls in love with American delivery girl Ramona Flowers, but must defeat her seven evil exes in order to date her.
A film adaptation of the series entitled Scott Pilgrim vs. the World starring actor Michael Cera in the title role was released in August 2010. A videogame of the same name developed by Ubisoft for Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade was released the same month.
The series begins by introducing Scott Pilgrim, a 23-year-old Canadian slacker living in Toronto with his sarcastic gay roommate Wallace Wells. He has started "dating" a Chinese-Canadian high-schooler, Knives Chau. His friends think it is scandalous since she is only 17. Scott does not consider it a big deal as all they do is chat about her school-life. He is the bass player in the band Sex Bob-omb, along with his friends Stephen Stills (guitar) and Kim Pine (drums).
One night, Scott begins dreaming about a girl on rollerblades that he has never met before. He later glimpses her in real life delivering a package to the library. Her repeated presence in his dreams, and a coincidental meeting at a party thrown by Stephen's on-off girlfriend Julie Powers, prompts him to become obsessed with finding out more about her. He discovers that she is Ramona Flowers, a girl who works for Amazon.ca and has recently come to Toronto from New York after a rumored messy break-up with someone named Gideon.
