We get it, you saw the movie and no one else did. We’re very sad about it, as well. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World may have been one of the more entertaining and fun films to see a release in 2010, but that doesn’t mean it was able to take that quality to the bank. You know what the world needed? More people who had read the Scott Pilgrim comic series by Bryan Lee O’Malley. And even though the film’s release came and went, then came again on DVD and Blu-ray (another highly recommended gift — call that one a bonus), it doesn’t mean you can’t get someone started with the gift of Pilgrim. That’s where today’s treasure swoops in with the power of self respect.
To celebrate the Pilgrim series, Oni Press has released this very fancy little box set, pictured above. This little guy packs more punch than you might expect, as it’s not just a collection of the six volumes of Scott Pilgrim. It also comes with the awesome slip cover! Seriously, it might be one of the coolest things you can put on a book shelf that doesn’t spit out gold coins every time you walk by (though we would contend that Oni missed the boat on adding that little feature.) Most importantly, the set comes with a brand new, full-color piece by Bryan O’Malley. I’ve included an image below, courtesy of Amazon. It’s a lovely little gift for one of two people: those who love Scott Pilgrim, and those who love it, but don’t know it yet.
How the Price Index Works:
For our ‘Price Index,’ we’ve devised a four-level scale based on the expense of the items we’re recommending. This is based on our research (mainly on Amazon and other fine retailers). It breaks down like so:
Dirt Cheap: Cost of $25 or less.
Affordable: Cost of no greater than $50.
A Worthy Stretch: Slightly more expensive, but no more expensive than $150.
For the Rich: Gifts for those you really, really love. $150 and greater items only need apply here.
