I finally did it. It took almost a full twelve months, but I finally finished all six volumes of Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim. First, I should make clear that it's not like Scott Pilgrim is the new Iliad: yes, the books are lengthy, but they're also super easy to read. It's just that I'm easily distracted. Also, I already knew the basic storyline from many, many viewings of the 2010 movie, so the prolonged duration of my reading is kind of justified. Secondly, the books are great. For real. But they really just made me want to return to the movie and soak it in again. Yes, the same movie that was met with critical apathy and general disdain from the viewing public.
