I had an email from amazon recommending the Scott Pilgrim books 2-6 even though I had ordered 2-5 just the other day. Amazon are retarded.

THIS is not Scott Pilgrim but is, in fact, Wolverine only in much the same vein as the Pilgrims...

I'm becoming apprehensive about the movie. What if it's not exactly like what Scott Pilgrim is like in my head? What if it's not as good as the Josie and the Pussycats movie?
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

I'm fully expecting the film to be NO THAT GREAT, but I'll still go see it. I hope it's on at the Electric.

I don't like the look of the girl playing Ramona so that sort of scuppers it for me.

Plus, unlike anyone else I know, in my head Wallace Wells is chinese.

That said Jason Schwartzman as Gideon is a truly inspired choice.

In truth I expect the film to be alright, but not anything truly special. That way I can't be too disappointed.

PS, I've just seen the book it's really thick, bigger than the others by a long way. Awesome.

Yea,I thought Wallace was asian too. Also, that girl playing Ramona is TOTALLY NOTRamona Flowers in my head.

I popped into the Forbidden Planet yesterday after work (despite it not being new comic book day) and noticed they had it there. But I didn't buy it cos it had this cover:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0007 ... d_i=468294

So I've now ordered a copy from Amazon.com. That's right… the US site, since that's the only way to get a copy that matches his other volumes, with the big number in the corner.

With international shipping it's still less than a tenner!

Aw crap. I didn't even think of that and I'd HEARD about the change of cover layout. I just ordered my copy in a blind panic and it has YET TO ARRIVE. I bet it'll come tomorrow AFTER I've left for Indietracks. Bah!

If it makes you feel any better, it means I've gotta wait till the middle of August to read it now. And that's at the earliest.

I read it this morning, it was a lot to take it. I'm going to go back to number 1 and read the lot in one go :-)

I agree, I read it, then had to re-read again. It is great though. Did you see what I mean about thinking it might be difficult to translate it into film? Or is that just me?

Yea, I think that might be the case with a lot of it though, the little quirks probably won't come out in the film. Also, I realised that the promo photo that was posted earlier in this thread is clearly a scene from the new book.
