Scott Pilgrim vs. the World:

All haill Atroticus!
I saw the movie. Then I read the novels. And I realized something. Scott Pilgrim is...

  • A Coming of Age Story...
  • ...about a young male protagonist...
  • ...who's in a relationship with an unhinged girl...
  • ...and falls in love with his dream girl...
  • ...who has [a] jealous ex[es] with too many resources...
  • ...with lots of awesome fight scenes...
  • ...told in six parts.

Sound familiar?

Essentially Scott Pilgrim is FLCL set in Toronto with the Japanese sensibilities replaced with North American Gen X/Y ones and some character archetypes switched around (Scott the free spirit and Ramona the aloof one), but my comparison still stands. I'm not accusing O'Malley of plagiarism, but it's a very close inspiration. And when I compare one story with another, I'd much rather enjoy the far superior one.

Blurrggghh.
Sorry, I just can't really come up with a situation wherein a person can buy/rent movies but can't buy/loan comics.

Well, about that, nobody here reads American comics. The only comic I ever found here was Watchmen and The Sandman, which were in my local university's library. Film, that's another story and there are enough rental store.

Manga and Manhwa rental store, on the other hand, in my town alone, there are over five of them.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
