I have to confess, I've still only read the first book all the way through.
wait...It's taking me awhile to process this information.
I pretty much thought of you as Mr. Scott Pilgrim. This is like finding out that van Gogh didn't paint his own paintings or that Godzilla just crushes miniature models
Yeah, I know, it's weird.
The thing is I only read the first book because it happened to be at my local library (I can't remember if I read the second book or just sort of browsed through it). And Scott Pilgrim books are hard to come by at the library (ironic since the library has used Scott Pilgrim to promote it's graphic novel section). In general I find myself unwilling to spend the money on the books, and don't want to download them online. But if I ever see them at a local book store I'll pick them up, sit down, and read it in the store.
I have been following the movie production, however. That's because Edgar Wright has been very forthcoming with info and updates his website regularly. I think the reason I've been so pro Scott Pilgrim lately, though, is because the book and movie is set in my home town. That might not seem like a big deal if you live in a city that is regularly featured in major motion pictures, but it's sort of a Canadian thing to do so. Like being interested in a band you don't listen to when they suddenly make it big overseas. I want to the movie to be a success, and I want to see the city I live in represented in a non stereotypical way on the big screen, which is not something that comes by very often, if it comes by at all.
