Scott Pilgrim

Postby DaveC » Sun Jul 25, 2010 9:54 am

I am giving up some of my Discworld time to re-read my 5 Scott Pilgrim graphic novels before embarking on the final 6th book which I have just bought. :oops:

The film of the books, Scott Pilgrim vs the World is out in the middle of August in America and on 25th of August here in the UK. It is the film I am most excited about this year! Directed by Edgar Wright (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and starring Michael Cera (Superbad, Juno, Nick and Norah..., Youth in Revolt) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Die Hard 4, Death Proof), it looks awesome. :D

Anyone else a fan of of the books and/or can't wait for the film? :?:

I'm busy with a marathon re-read of Birds of Prey, in anticipation of reading the new series, but I've managed to... Um... let's say, acquire, the six Scott Pilgrim books in .CBZ format so I can decide if I like them well enough to buy the originals (comics are expensive these days). I shall report back presently.

Oh yeah, I read the last volume very good but as good as the others. Still hyped about the film, though!

I am a huge fan of Scott Pilgrim. I haven't read all 6 novels yet though, I have read only 3. But having seen your post here, reminds me that I have to go out and purchase the next 3 which should keep me busy for a while.

The film looks amazingly good and looks quite funny. I for one can't wait for the release.

Yeah not long to go now, although I am not sure if I will be able to buy it up here where I live. I will probably have to order it online, do you know where they will be selling it?
