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.

These are the first graphic novels I've ever read. My general problem with graphic novels is that you can read through one in an hour or two. It hardly seems worth the price when you can get some 1000-page pulp fiction for half the cost. That said, Scott Pilgrim is definitely worth it. It's funny, the characters are engaging, the artwork is a significant part of the story, and O'Malley is able to address some really significant relational issues in a way that is lighthearted without being flippant.

The color versions seem worth the price. I don't think I'd enjoy them nearly as much in black and white.

My solution to how quickly you can read through one of these was to only read a chapter or two over coffee in the morning. It turned into my favorite part of the day (well, it probably already was; coffee is coffee). Going to sleep at night, I'd be excited to wake up and read a bit more.

I first read the Scott Pilgrim series in paperback after seeing the film, and had wanted to get it for Kindle, which is only recently available and only in color. The color changes some of the "feel" of the book compared to the fairly Spartan black and white version, but the story is still compelling. If you've only read the black and white version, color doesn't add much. If you've only read the color version I encourage you to seek out the black and white as well.

I saw the movie before reading the comics. I also have not read the black and white version so I cannot compare. So far I have enjoyed this book. The story so far is very similar to the movie (well, vice versa I guess but you know what I mean) but it is still fun to visit the source material. The illustrations are top notch and the humor/personalities of the characters are just great. I look forward to reading the rest of them and seeing how the story diverges from the movie.

I own the e-book version, so understand that everything I reference is from reading this on a 10" tablet.

I got my son hooked on Scott Pilgrim before the movie came out. He's worn out his original set of books. When I saw the color versions available and that it was available as an e-book, I jumped on the chance. The art jumps off the page in the bigger format (thanks to the tablet's screen being larger than the original books), the colors are vibrant and well-done, and it feels like reading the series again for the first time. I can't wait until the rest of the volumes are available in color!

The first volume does a great job introducing the characters and basic story line. Remember that Scott is a jerk... he's not supposed to be likable, and the series deals with that directly. Enjoy this for the escapist fun it is!

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.
