In Portland, Oregon, there is a small, independent comic book publisher called "Oni Press." Since 2004, writer Bryan Lee O'Malley has been producing a graphic novel called "Scott Pilgrim." Pilgrim, the novel's hero, is a 23-year old Canadian; he is a part-time bassist in a band with friends in Toronto called "Sex Bob-omb," and a part-time slacker. Pilgrim falls in love with an American girl named Ramona Flowers, a delivery girl for Amazon.
There is no avoiding the fact that last week I went on record in this same space and guaranteed "The Other Guys" (not to be confused with the FOX television show starring Colin Hanks and Bradley Whitford called, "The Good Guys") would be worth your cash. And mine.
