I first picked up the first volume in the Scott Pilgrim series just to see what all the fuss was about (this was about the time the movie came out and everybody seemed to be talking about how awesome the graphic novel was). I admit it was not half bad, but I never really got around to finishing it until recently.
The premise is simple, the main character is a guy named Scott who meets a girl named Ramona Flowers and falls head over heels in love with her. Soon after this all happens he finds out that Ramona has seven evil exes who he must defeat in order to be with her. Over the course of the series (a total of six graphic novels) we see him battle and eventually defeat them. The plot is fairly obvious, making it easy to predict what is to come but it is still interesting enough to keep you reading. It may not be the best thing ever created, but it is worth reading when you have some free time and don’t want to read anything too complicated (personally I recommend reading it whenever you get bored in school/on the bus).
