Sadly, a chapter of pop culture comes to a close today. Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, the sixth volume in the Scott Pilgrim saga, appears in comic book shops and bookstores today, bringing an end to the series. Fittingly as well, because it's also the week that Comic-Con begins, so let's hope that some sort of creator Bryan Lee O'Malley phoenix will rise from the ashes and be reborn in an equally awesome comic.
If you haven't read Scott Pilgrim, now is the perfect time to hop on board since you can pick up the entire series. For a steal as well, I'd wager, since Amazon is offering the final book at a hefty discount. The book is full of video game references, and takes places in a universe where battling evil exes seems to be a common occurrence.
A film adaptation starring Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim entitled Scott Pilgrim vs. The World comes out next month (we'll have more news about that at Comic-Con), as does a pretty awesome 8-bit video game. Definitely worth checking out.
