If you liked the movie, or are a fan of comic books, I really reccomend this series.
V. Shore
As for the box set, it adds a nice slipcase to the previously released books (the books themselves do not have added content) as well as a cool poster.
K. Harris
I got into the Scott Pilgrim series after watching the movie, and after a friend advised me to read the books.

Format: Paperback
"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," the striking film version of the inspired series by Bryan Lee O'Malley, had a disappointing run this year in terms of box office. Even with surprising critical support, the film fell below expectations from a money making standpoint. Now, as we are enjoying the DVD release, I think the world of Scott Pilgrim is about to explode as new fans to the irreverent charm of Scott and company discover the delightfully skewed source material. And I thought, I'd recap the highlights as I've gone back to appreciate the six volumes anew.

Volume One: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life. The 2004 introduction to Scott Pilgrim and his motley band of acquaintances sets the tone perfectly for all that is to follow. We meet the band and Scott's gay roommate, but it's Scott's love life that takes center stage (naturally)! His chaste courtship with the slightly obsessed Knives is hysterical--but everything changes when a bewitching Amazon delivery girl named Ramona literally invades his mind. Setting his heart on the mysterious Ramona, Scott soon discovers she has some pretty heavy baggage in the form of seven evil ex-boyfriends that need to be dispatched. A great start to an increasingly bizarre series!

Volume Two: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. The saga continued in 2005 with a chapter that provided numerous flashbacks developing some of Scott's formative relationships. His deepening affection for Ramona serves to unleash the warrior in Knives. Even as the couple deal with Knives' new aggression, Ramona's second evil ex (a movie star, no less!) drops by and must be dealt with. That's no problem, really, when appealing to his pride and machismo--and his demise barely even registers in comparison to Scott's ex Envy reappearing.

I have to admit, first and foremost, that I got into Scott Pilgrim on accident. I was dragged to go see the movie by friends and I ended up loving it so much I went to see the movie 5 more times, followed by viewing the Blu-Ray version about 37 times to this day. But this is not about the movie, this is about the boxset, which is damn good if you ask me.

I didn't expect much from it since I had preordered it first. I just thought I would get the 6 volumes and that's it. Boy was I surprised when I got the thing. It looked fantastic with the box, and I continually turned it around in pure awe from the sheer amount of characters and detail that was put into it. Well, as far as 8-bit detail goes anyway. Moving onto the contents of the box, they included what I wanted, the full 6 volumes of Scott Pilgrim in all their glory. As I took out each one, to see anyway, not read yet, I was again surprised with the poster. Pure amazingness on a sheet of paper was my first thought as I unfolded the poster.

I won't go into detail of the books as this is, again, about the boxset. I was quite happy with the price for all of them, and to get the box and poster was an awesome bonus. It did take a while for it to get to my place, but worth the wait.

Format: Paperback
The Scott Pilgrim series covers many universal themes--love, loss, and redemption--and wraps them up in a fun, bubblegum story filled with action, wacky characters, surreal humor, and numerous pop culture references. Sound bizarre? Well, it is, but it's also very heartfelt; the story examines the life of Canadian protagonist Scott Pilgrim and the relationship he develops with Ramona Flowers, a cool American girl he meets at a local party. He quickly falls for her, but dating this girl carries one nasty stipulation--he must defeat her previous seven evil boyfriends, or "evil exes," in combat before they can truly be together. Over the course of the six volume series, Scott faces down these brutes much like one encounters a boss at the end of each level in a video game. In fact, the entire story plays out much like a video game (Super Mario references and all), albeit with better writing than what is often found in that medium.

No doubt, author Bryan Lee O'Malley's work here is an ingenious piece of fiction. Although his art is rough (especially in the early volumes), the high-level of emotion he is able to convey with his simple line work is incredible, making for characters that are far more endearing and expressive than they have any right to be. His depiction of the whimsical, almost magical world of Toronto is also sharp. In one sense, the city seems very mundane, with its denizens working dead-end jobs by day and simply hanging out at night. But then Scott will defeat an evil-ex, exploding him into a pile of coins, and then nonchalantly take a trip with Ramona Flowers through the sub-space highway, which is essentially an interdimensional warp zone that links to different areas of the city. (Again, Super Mario fans will understand.

Format: Paperback
It's hard to think of a slacker more endearing than Scott Pilgrim -- he's funny, cool, unpretentious, and awkwardly romantic.

And you get to see all of that in "Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Boxset," which adds a rock'n'roll sci-fi twist to the usual boy-meets-girl story. Most of it ambles across the daily adventures of Scott's life as he falls in love, but Bryan Lee O'Malley carefully it into a tale of good vs. evil, enduring love, evil exes, subspace passages, and the struggle to overcome the past.

23-year-old Scott Pilgrim has everything: a cool rock band, a forgiving gay roommate, and a high school girlfriend (they just talk! Don't worry!). But lately his dreams have been full of a strange young woman on rollerblades, who usually announces that he IS dreaming -- and one day at the library, he actually sees her in the flesh.

Her name is Ramona Flowers, and while Scott's first attempts to talk to her bomb horribly, an order from amazon.ca brings her right to her door (and a date). But it turns out that to officially date Ramona, Scott must defeat her seven evil exes, the League Of Evil Ex-Boyfriends -- a guy with demon hipster chicks, a famous actor, a snotty vegan rocker, an insecure lesbian ninja, and a pair of Japanese twins using evil robots.

Along the way, Scott has some ex-girlfriend problems of his own, especially with the haughty musician Envy and the high-strung teenager Knives. And when Ramona vanishes, Scott is left to deal with the final and most dangerous boyfriend: Gideon! Can Ramona and Scott overcome their flaws and terrible pasts, or will Gideon end Scott Pilgrim's precious little life?

When you boil it down, the Scott Pilgrim series is really just a boy-meets-girl story.
