To be honest, I expected more. Or different. But it has its moments.

The drawing is OK, however the character design is very flawed: most girls look alike except for weird hairdos and sometimes characters don't look like themselves.

The narrative was better than the story, the latter bugged me sometimes. I don't know if his awesomeness is meant to be ironic, but in this first volume Scott Pilgram is an asshole. At first I thought "what's the point of dating a 17 year old if it's gonna be like that?" but I guess it's a nice depiction of moronic things guys do (still, the description of the characters are somewhat off considering their actions, though I guess I prefer how they act, it's more honest and accurate than the Juno weird/cool thing). Towards the end I got the feeling I would enjoyed it more with just the slice of life and none of the Video Game boss parody with the ex's, although then it would probably be just a random ordinary comic.
