The colored version is so worth it.
HaydenMonroe
The colors help make the character come to life and it feels like a good animated Saturday morning cartoon, like Animaniacs, which works well with the story.

I`'ve seen the movie, beaten the game, and I then decided to read the graphic novels.

Since most people that read this edition of Scott Pilgrim will already be familiar with the story, I'm going to review what color does for the story and a bit about the added bonus features.

In some ways I'm a traditionalist and I don't really like the trend of coloring black and white comics as it does take a bit away from how the story was originally presented. In the case of Scott Pilgrim, the black and white at times felt perfect for the story as it give it a magnaesque vibe to it that fit well with the storyline. But...at the same time as the series and characters progressed the black and white felt limiting, as we talked about the changes in Ramona's hair color and the fight scenes that shaped the characters. So I am glad to have a chance to read the colorized version of the novel as it brings an added vibrancy and depth to Bryan's work. The colors help make the character come to life and it feels like a good animated Saturday morning cartoon, like Animaniacs, which works well with the story. In particular the color enhances the band and battle scenes, making a good black and white drawing, suddenly feel animated. My favorite scenes in color--Scott's battle sequence with matthew Patel and the demon girls. The color just brings so much to that scene, shadows and highlights that just make things pop. So despite my unease the color really does help create a more vibrant story.

This volume also includes some bonus content that reveals the life of Scott Pilgrim, before he became Scott Pilgrim. Bryan shares with us some of his influences, such as the title of a band's song, friends and family that the characters and story were based upon, and how he sold the idea to Oni to create this series of graphic novels.

I like many was a bit skeptical about a color edition: would it be worth re-buying a book I already owned just for some color and a few tweaks? Would I like the colorist's work? Honestly though, they did a great job. I love black and whIte comics as a rule but this series really shines in color because the style of coloring was appropriate to the lineart and added to the story instead of being a distraction. Also a few touched up panels doesn't hurt.

Bottom line is: if you love SP and don't mind shelling out some more money for the series it's totally worth it. This comic adapts surprisingly well to color.

I own all of the Scott Pilgrim books, posters, and anything mildly related to the series (my name is Scott too..). I found myself conflicted when considering buying this; I wondered what difference color would make while reading this, but was reassured by a preview I viewed online. Color brings this already lively story to life, and actually gets one exited to re-read the novel, in short a long time fan or someone looking to get into the series will love this. From its bizarre mix of real life and video games, to the alluring indie rock scene of Toronto, and all the little quirks make the series worth rereading over and over. In time younger generations probably won't find it as appealing, but for anyone who can relate to coasting through life in a directionless manner, only to suddenly be faced with more than they ever have, this book is timeless. Needless to say, from my very subjective perspective, five stars easily.

If you're a fan, you need this. If you're not a fan, you need this. End of story.

(course, if I was forced to say more about it I'll just say it's been absolutely great re-reading this in color. To say that it adds to the experience is an understatement. You owe it to yourself to read it if you haven't even if you're just mildly curious and if you've already read it it's still worth the time and money)

I've been reading this series since 2008, right around the time that Scott Pilgrim Vs. The Universe (Volume 5) released. It's been a favorite ever since I picked up the black and white original version of this volume, and every copy of all 6 volumes I have are pretty ragged from being re-read over and over again (at least once every few months). The black and white play very well, but there's always that interest in just what everything would look like in color. This new volume doesn't just give you the color, but a strong hardcover with larger pages, tough binding, and extras on the making of the first volume. While I'll always have a place for the black and white editions, I'll probably be pulling these new color editions out more often than those, just for the durability issue alone. Really an outstanding volume, and if you don't have the classic paperbacks, it's a great place to start.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Pop Bop TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 9, 2012
Format: Hardcover
My initial reaction as I read the first few pages of this volume was not a good one. Scott Pilgrim was pretty lame, the high school girlfriend was sort of creepy, the bandmates/roommate were either whiney or annoying, and there didn't seem to be much of a plot. The illustration seemed very uninspired.

But wait. After the first pages we have the arrival of Ramona, major love interest number two for Scott. Suddenly, he becomes more interesting, the first part of the plot kicks in, and Scott's friends and sister begin to say interesting things. Even the art perks up - better color, interesting panel design, more expressive line work.

By the late middle the book is in high gear. Ramona continues as a strong character. The Scott Pilgrim character has to deepen and become more personable just to keep up. The band comes into focus. Knives gets a personality. The other secondary characters also start to chip in. And the major plotline, (fighting the ex-boyfriends), comes into focus. There is some real development, some honest emotion, and a lot of forward progress and action. There's a big finish that is excitingly drawn, and a nice denouement.

The upshot is that this is a very satisfying Volume 1, but it will kook you to keep going to the later volumes.

Please note that I received a free electronic copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a frank review. I think my copy is just like the final form, which is a good thing because at the end of Volume ! there is an extended note from the author describing the genesis of the characters and some of the locations, and unlike most such notes, it adds a great deal to your understanding of and enjoyment of the book.
