Scott Pilgrim: Epically Awesome Comics

For Father's Day, my wife got me, among other awesome things, the first two volumes of Scott Pilgrim, by Bryan Lee O'Malley. In short, they are about a guy who becomes obsessed with new girl Ramona Flowers and must fight his way through her seven evil ex-boyfriends before he can date her. In shot, it's awesome. The art is extremely stylized and might be off-putting to some, but it fits the story most excellently and the dialog is whip smart and always on fire. I've already finished both volumes and can't wait to order the remaining four. They are that good. And the movie and game coming out look just as epic. Check them all out. Seriously.
