Okay, we're sorry, but if you're not totally in love with we're going to have to fight you. Recommended highly by the froods at Isotope Comics as well as by us, It's the first of seven volumes chronicling the life and love of a 23-year old doofy-cute shyguy in Toronto, written and illustrated by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Scott's dating a mature high school girl, but his eye's been caught by a mysterious girl he's seen skating in his dreams; meanwhile his friends attend band practice (their band: "The Sex Bob-ombs") and cook bacon and live casual, friendly, just-like-you-and-me sorts of lives; they work, they drink, they party. The characters have a Joss-Whedony ability to be sensitive and sarcastic at the same time -- such as when Scott wakes up in the morning and says, "I wish I could turn into a morphing ball and roll to the bathroom from here, instead of having to stand up," and his ladyfriend replies, "I used to know a guy who could do that. He said it wasn't that great." But it's not all hipster navel-gazing; everyone in the Scott Pilgrim universe has an uncontrollable spontaneity, so just when you think you know what's coming next, two characters unexpectedly hook up or suddenly weild mystical powers to summon a flock of -- well, we don't want to ruin the f**king awesome ending for you. It's explodey enough for your edgy friends, and emo enough for your weepy ones, and at about $12 it would be a perfect purchase if there happened to be some kind of upcoming gift-giving holiday.
