The 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters, Scott Pilgrim

Bryan Lee O�Malley�s creation is one of the most authentic twentysomethings ever committed to comic booky paper. At once self-assured yet nervous about his social interactions and encounters with Ramona Flowers, the girl who appears in Scott�s dreams before he meets her, Scott is an enormously likeable character: droll and funny, spicing his conversation with pop culture references (and, like Deadpool, he seems to be aware that he�s in a comic book from time to time), finding inner depths, emotions and resources he never knew he had, as his slacking ways are rudely challenged by the small matter of defeating those evil ex-boyfriends. The six volume comic (part four was released this year), in case you�ve never picked it up, reflects Scott: it�s a mish-mash of styles and tones, mixing observational comedy with, say, videogame-inspired fight scenes, with the tone zig-zagging about wildly and joyously. Go discover it. Now.
