Scott Pilgrim vs. The World shares its title with the second book in the six-book series of graphic novels on which the film is based. I drove straight to a Los Angeles screening of the film from Comic-Con, having never read a page of the comic that inspired the film, and not quite knowing what to expect. It was awesome. You don’t have to be familiar with the books to enjoy the movie, but if you enjoy the movie you’re going to want to read all the books. I did, and managed to finish Book Six just in time to make it to a second screening of the film last night, which rocked just as much as the first time around.
