The series is an near unequalled parable on the joys and perils of being caught between growing up and never really growing up at all, through the lens of a generation brought-up on giant robot fights, 16-bit videogames and lo-fi indie music.
There was a collective intake of online breath with the news that ONI Press was to force a double dip on fans, and purists might still view these editions with a cynical eye, but the quality of the end product justifies the re-release with its beautifully scaled panels and re-energising colour palette.
Scott Pilgrim is one of those rare pieces of comic fiction that punctuates its action, comedy and romance storylines with perfect timing, offering readers an unique and heartfelt perspective on the age old conundrums of love, loss and superpowered vegan ex-boyfriends.
Scott Pilgrim: Colour Edition is available now. Birmingham Libraries members can reserve a copy using the Online catalogue
