Great books, bad set
on 9 October 2012
I'm a huge fan of Scott Pilgrim. I'd borrowed the books from a friend of mine to read and fell in love with them, so decided to buy my own set. What better than this collection of all six?
In some ways nothing could be better. You're getting six funny, characterful, and often touching graphic novels that are easy to enjoy, especially if you're a fan of nerd culture. The books are drawn in a simple black and white style, quite reminiscent of manga, but with a distinct style of their own.
Unfortunately this isn't exactly the ultimate set for collectors I was hoping it might be. Yes, you do get all the books, but you don't get any kind of case or similar to keep them in, and unfortunately they weren't all from the same print. Volume 2-6 are in the style seen in the picture in the product description, while Volume 1 is the version released alongside the film, with the cover resembling the promotional posters for the film. This may only be true from the seller I bought from (the-books-warehouse), if you want to ensure you get all the books in the same style, it might be worth considering buying them separately.
Other than that, I am very happy with the product, and shall look forward to rereading the books yet again.
