Holy smokes, I'm excited about the impending release of Bryan Lee O'Malley's "Scott Pilgim's Finest Hour!"
Volume six of the awesome "Scott Pilgrim" series, the manga-style comic chronicles the adventures of Scott Pilgrim, a slacker / musician / kung fu fighter who falls hopelessly in love with the lovely Ramona Flowers, ninja messenger girl. Trouble is, in order to keep Ramona, Scott has to defeat each of Romona's "seven evil exes."
"Scott Pilgim's Finest Hour" will be available on July 20 at a fine comic book shop near you.
Not coincidentally, the movie treatment of "Scott Pilgrim" is scheduled to release in theaters in August. Entitled "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World", I have high hopes it will capture some of the awesomeness of the comic series, since it is helmed by "Shaun of the Dead" director Edgar Wright and stars the wonderful Michael Cera.
Gotta love the tagline: "an epic of epic epicness."
UPDATE March 27: Now we just heard the news that Ubisoft is coming out with "Scott Pilgrim: the Game." Go 8-bit goodness!
