Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life


The series begins by introducing Scott Pilgrim, a 23-year-old Canadian slacker living in Toronto with his sarcastic ***** roommate Wallace Wells. He has started "dating" a Chinese-Canadian high-schooler, Knives Chau. Although his friends think it's scandalous since she is only 17, Scott doesn't consider it a big deal as all they do is chat about her school-life. He is the bass player in the band S**X** Bob-omb, along with his friends Stephen Stills (guitar) and Kim Pine (drums), but Stephen is the only member who is recognized as being "the talent" and they rarely take the endeavor very seriously.
One night, Scott begins dreaming about a girl on rollerblades that he's never met before whom he later glimpses delivering a package to the library. Her repeated presence in his dreams, and a coincidental meeting at a party thrown by Stephen's on-off girlfriend Julie Powers, prompts him to become obsessed with finding out more about her. He discovers that she is Ramona Flowers, a girl who works for Amazon.ca and has recently come to Toronto from New York after a rumored messy break-up with someone named Gideon.
Scott orders CDs on Amazon as a pretext to meet her again, and receives an email from an unknown party (later revealed to be Matthew Patel) challenging him to battle, but Scott pays it little heed and promptly deletes it. After another dream about Ramona, in which she is carrying his package, Scott wakes to find her at his door. She explains that she uses subspace portals as part of her job to cross long distances in seconds; one such route passes through Scott's brain, hence his dreams. Having convinced her he isn't a weirdo after their previous encounters, they spend the evening together and go back to her house during a heavy snowstorm. After blundering into her bedroom while she is changing, Scott and Ramona kiss and spend the night together, but do not actually have S**X**. The next day, Scott goes home. Wallace informs him that he needs to break up with Knives if he plans to pursue a serious relationship with Ramona, but when he meets her later in preparation for their gig at the Rockit club, Knives is considerably more forward than usual, and Scott fails to tell her. He also receives a letter from Matthew, which he again disregards.
After an opening performance by rival band Crash and the Boys, which features one song that is 0.4 seconds long and another that leaves the audience comatose, S**X** Bob-omb prepare to begin their set when Matthew descends upon the stage and engages Scott in a video game-style duel. He is revealed as one of Ramona's evil ex-boyfriends, and has mystical powers that allow him to summon "demon hipster chicks". Scott prevails, his final attack obliterating Matthew and leaving behind a handful of coins. On the subway home, Scott and Ramona decide to become a couple, on the proviso that Scott agree to defeat her other evil-exes. When Scott asks if Gideon is one of them, Ramona's head glows sharply.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

vs. The World opens with a flashback to Scott Pilgrim as a transfer student to "St. Joel's Catholic High School" in Northern Ontario, seven years before the series began. As soon as Scott arrives on campus, he is faced with three hoodlums, whom he fights and ultimately loses to. Outside the principal's office, Scott meets a girl named Lisa who immediately befriends him. Scott and Lisa attempt to start a band, only to realize that they are missing a drummer.
Meanwhile, Scott meets Kimberly (Kim) Pine in his geography class (he draws a sheep for her), only to find out later at a school performance that she plays the drums. Lisa and Scott scheme to ask Kim to join the band, but when Scott shows up to school the following Monday, he finds out she has been kidnapped by students from the rival Benvie Tech High School. Another game-esque battle ensues and Scott defeats all the evil Benvie Tech Boys, including the final boss, Simon Lee, and rescues Kim Pine. The two start dating (and lose their virginities together) and Kim joins the band until Scott moves to Toronto. Ramona then steps into Scott's dream/flashback to wake him up.
Scott and Wallace ride the bus together, and Wallace tells him that ex-skateboarder/actor Lucas Lee, Ramona's second evil ex-boyfriend, is filming a new movie in Toronto. Wallace also issues Scott one of his "famous ultimatums", telling him he must break up with Knives. Scott goes to meet Knives and awkwardly breaks it off, but is cheered by thoughts of Ramona.
The next day, Scott shows up at the video store Kim works at to rent several of Lucas Lee's films to prepare for his next battle. While preparing for Lucas Lee, Scott and his friends make vegan shepherd's pie. The recipe is dictated step-by-step by Stephen Stills. Scott goes to meet Lucas at his filming location, the Casa Loma. Lucas immediately beats Scott up, after which they take a lunch break and Lucas tells Scott about how Ramona broke his heart, and how there is a League of Ramona's Evil Ex-Boyfriends who have organized themselves to come after Scott. Scott then challenges Lucas Lee to a skateboard competition; Lucas at first claims that riding down the rails at the castle is "impossible", but would rather take on the challenge than lose face. He starts out well, but reaches 309 kph and bursts into coins. Scott gets an item (a Mithril Skateboard), but can't use it because he didn't take "skateboard proficiency" back in Grade 5.
Meanwhile, Knives Chau begins to stalk Scott incessantly, and finds out that he is dating Ramona Flowers. Knives shows up and attacks Ramona at the Toronto Reference Library, but escapes after repeatedly insulting Ramona.
As the fight is taking place, Scott gets a call from Envy Adams, who asks him to open for her band, The Clash at Demonhead that weekend. The conversation implies that they once had a relationship, and after the phone call, Wallace arrives at the apartment to find Scott in a near-coma-like state. Scott and his friends show up to see Envy's band on Friday, only to discover that Knives is now dating Young Neil, Stephen Stills' roommate. The book ends with an epic opening by The Clash at Demonhead, and introduces Ramona's third evil ex-boyfriend, Todd Ingram, who is the bassist.

Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness

The Infinite Sadness continues the night that Envy Adams's band, The Clash at Demonhead, performs. After the venue clears out, Scott Pilgrim spots a save point by the back door and attempts to run to it before Envy approaches him, but is too late. She invites Scott, Ramona, Kim Pine, Stephen Stills, Julie Powers, Knives, and Young Neil backstage with them to "chat". Knives announces to Envy that she has "kissed the lips that kissed you", and has the highlights punched out of her hair by The Clash at Demonhead's drummer, Lynette Guycott, who has a bionic arm. Knives and Young Neil leave. Scott then tries to punch Todd Ingram, but is stopped by Todd's telekinetic powers. Envy (who is dating Todd) explains that Todd is a vegan, and graduated top of his class in "Vegan Academy". Todd explains that he gains his powers from using the extra 90% of his brain, whereas non-vegans use only 10% of their brain and that the rest is "filled up with curds and whey."
The story then unfolds with a series of flashbacks detailing the beginning of Scott and Natalie's (pre-"Envy") relationship. After the flashback, Envy tells Scott and the others that they will meet up at Honest Ed's the following day for a "surprise". Flashbacks continue, detailing Natalie's change into Envy, her break-up with Scott once their band started to get noticed, and how Scott and Wallace came to be friends.
The next day Scott and the others show up at Honest Ed's. Envy tells Scott that he and Todd are going to have to fight to the death inside, and that whoever reaches the end of the store first wins. Scott and Todd dash through the store, the contents of which are reminiscent of a haunted house, and Todd is mentally tormented by his past until he berserks and causes Honest Ed's to implode. Neither Scott nor Todd win the challenge, but instead are supposed to fight again the following night. Ramona convinces Scott to ditch the challenge and they return to Ramona's apartment. After an unsuccessful make-out session, Ramona begins to fill Scott in about her relationship with Todd. In a flashback to their college years, Todd proves his love to Ramona by using his newly-gained vegan powers to blow a crater in the moon.
Chapter 16 opens with Envy, Todd and Lynette at a restaurant. Todd cheats at being a vegan and orders gelato, then proceeds to make out with Lynette while Envy is in the bathroom. Later, that evening, before opening for Envy's band, Ramona and Envy get into an argument and begin to fight, Ramona armed with a giant mallet. Midway through, S**X** Bob-omb appears on stage in costume (Stephen Stills as Johnny Cash, Kim Pine in a gothic lolita dress, and Scott in a second-hand suit). Scott sees Envy about to kill Ramona and Knives, and jumps from the stage to hit her "weak point", the back of her knees. Ramona tells Envy that Todd is cheating on her, and that he performed his Moon crater trick for Ramona first, which is why there are two holes on the moon. Todd and Scott then proceed to have a boss battle, and Scott is aided by the powers of The Boys and Crash (the opening band for the evening). Todd almost wins the battle until the vegan police show up and strip him of his powers for multiple vegan offenses, such as eating gelato. Scott headbutts the powerless Todd, who is reduced to a pile of coins. Afterward, Scott receives an extra life. Finally, S**X** Bob-omb gets to play, and Scott spots a strange character (Gideon) from the stage. The volume ends with Envy moving back home.
The Infinite Sadness also features extras, such as guest comics from Josh Lesnick, Alex Ahad, Andy Helms, John Allison, and David McGuire, as well as a map of the major characters illustrating their relations to each other.

Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together

(note: Gets it Together features a format change of the series' original spine art)
After a summer break at the beach for Julie Powers' birthday, during which Knives and Kim get drunk and end up making out, Kim moves into an apartment with her friends, Holly and Joseph. Stephen notices Joseph has a home recording studio, and asks him to help S**X** Bob-omb record an album. As Scott goes to the Dufferin Mall to escape a heat wave, he is spotted by his old high school friend, Lisa Miller, later re-acquainting her with Kim and introducing her to Ramona and the others. Meanwhile, at Knives' house, Knives and her friend notice that the picture of Scott on Knives' shrine is slashed, which Knives claims she hasn't done herself.
Annoyed with running into his daft subspace dreams in the middle of the day, Ramona reccomends Scott should get a job. Kim brings him to The Happy Avocado, a vegetarian restaurant where Stephen Stills works, where he gets a job as a dishwasher. Shortly afterwards, Scott and Kim are attacked by a samurai, who slices a streetcar in half and chases them until they escape via a subspace portal. The next day, Scott and Wallace venture to the financial district to meet with their landlord, Peter, who tells them that they must re-sign the lease or leave by August 27. Wallace reccomends that Scott move in with Ramona. As Scott contemplates this, he briefly encounters a female ninja, who quickly becomes embarrassed and disappears. The following afternoon, Scott spots the very same girl talking to Ramona at the restaurant where he works. She is revealed to be Roxie Richter, Ramona's fourth evil ex during her '***** phase'. Not keen on fighting someone with a sword, Scott hides in Ramona's bag while she heads into a subspace portal, where they fight against Roxie. After nearly killing Ramona, Roxie leaves. Afterward, Ramona tells Scott that he can move in with her temporarily. Later on though, things go downhill when Ramona suspects Scott might feel something for Lisa and storms off.
After briefly encountering Wallace in an awkward position and being informed that he was fired from his job during the fight, Scott goes to Lisa's house to spend the night. Lisa recalls whether Scott had any feelings for her in high school and if they should have an affair. After waking up from a dream which Roxie had infiltrated in an attempt to kill him, Scott learns that nothing happened between him and Lisa since he had finally managed to say that he loves Ramona. After getting his job back, Scott goes to the Second Cup, which is different from the one Stacey works at since Knives is working there. There, they are spotted by the samurai, revealed to be Knives' father who was not keen on Knives dating a white boy, who proceeds to attack Scott. Scott escapes via another subspace portal and ends up in Ramona's mind, where she is a slave to a shadowy figure. Ramona kicks Scott out of her head, telling him to forget what he saw, but before he can explain his true feelings, he finds Roxie staying over her house and is told to walk it off. As he walks on, Scott sees his dark self and rejects him, rushing back to Ramona to find her being attacked by Mr. Chau. Scott lures him away and gets him to fight against Roxie. When Scott realises he's just been a ~censored~ all this time, he plucks up the courage to confess his love for Ramona, earning the Power of Love sword. Scott uses this to defeat Roxie, Ninja Gaiden-style, who warns him about the twins before dying. Scott then apologises to Mr. Chau, who leaves having earned respect for Scott, before Scott finally moves in with Ramona. After giving Lisa a farewell meal, Ramona finally tells Scott her age.
The back of Gets it Together features guest art from Steve Manale, Michael Comeau, Philip Bond, and Zander Cannon as well as a back cover illustrated by pixel artist Miguel Sternberg.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe

Vs. the Universe features a shiny cover.
After Scott turns 24, the gang attends a Day of the Dead-themed party thrown by Julie where Ramona spots her next two evil ex-boyfriends, the twins Kyle and Ken Katayanagi. Scott approaches them and prepares to fight, but instead is forced to fight their robot, Robot-01. He defeats the robot and "wins the party". Meanwhile, Knives learns from Stephen that Scott cheated on her with Ramona, and wonders if Ramona knows about it. November continues to show the deteriorating status of Scott and Ramona's relationship, with Ramona starting to appear bored and Scott stumbling onto signs that she may still be interested in Gideon. She at one point tells Scott that she doesn't like his band, which hasn't done any gigs since they started 'recording', at which Scott is distressed. Later, S**X** Bob-omb prepares for a show at Sneaky Dee's, even though they haven't rehearsed in months due to Stephen Stills' persistent but fruitless recording. Their performance, which was doomed to fail anyway, is interrupted by another one of the twin's robots, which Scott defeats albeit breaking his bass in the process. During this time, Ramona encounters Knives in the bathroom, who tells her that Scott cheated on them at the same time. On the way home, Scott admits that he forgot his keys and Ramona refuses to let him in for the night. He ends up staying with Wallace, who reveals to Scott that he has found pictures of Gideon Graves, all of which are blurry or indistinct.
After spending the next night at Kim's, he arranges a setup so that he can casually bump into Kim and Ramona while they get coffee. During the conversation, Kim brings attention to Ramona's head glowing, which she herself was unaware of, although it disappears before she can see for herself. They later all attend another of Julie's parties that night where Scott is forced to fight yet another robot. Kim approaches Ramona on the balcony, and takes a picture with her camera phone of Ramona's head, which is yet again glowing. Kim and Ramona proceed to get drunk on Jose Cuervo tequila, and after defeating the robot, Scott joins them. Later, Kim takes the subway home, but is kidnapped by the twins. After some initial intimacy, Ramona confronts Scott about cheating on Knives with her and tells him he is a bad person, which worries Scott into thinking they might break up. Whilst Ramona takes a shower in the early morning, Scott receives word of Kim's kidnapping, and rushes to a construction site to face the twins, although is left at a disadvantage due to his hangover. During the fight, the twins explain that Ramona cheated on both of them at the same time, and imply Scott is fighting for the wrong girl. As he begins to lose the fight, Kim lies and says that Ramona text messaged her to give Scott the encouragement to defeat the twins simultaneously, racking up a massive bonus.
Scott rushes back to the apartment. Ramona, now with her hair cut and dyed again, tells Scott that she is a bad person and that she "had a good time." Her head begins to glow brighter and brighter until she disappears. Scott tries to look for her, but instead lets her cat out and locks himself out of her apartment. Over the next few days, Scott bed-hops whilst trying to get Ramona's cat to come back and constantly mistaking people for Gideon. Kim moves back home to the north, accepting Scott's apology for his behaviour. After moving into a new apartment, Scott reads a note Ramona left behind addressed to Gideon, telling him she wouldn't come back to him. Whilst Scott wonders what this means, he receives a call from Gideon, asking when it would be convenient to die.
The end of vs. The Universe features a section called "Creating Scott Pilgrim for fun and profit." The section includes drawings and comments from Bryan Lee O'Malley detailing the development of the series, including a playlist for the 5th book.
