A film adaptation of the series entitled Scott Pilgrim vs. the World starring actor Michael Cera in the title role has since been released on August 13, 2010.
The series begins by introducing Scott Pilgrim, a 23-year-old Canadian slacker living in Toronto with his sarcastic gay roommate Wallace Wells. He has started "dating" a Chinese-Canadian high-schooler, Knives Chau. Although his friends think it is scandalous since she is only 17, Scott does not consider it a big deal as all they do is chat about her school-life. He is the bass player in the band Sex Bob-omb, along with his friends Stephen Stills (guitar) and Kim Pine (drums), but Stephen is the only member who is recognized as being "the talent" and they rarely take the endeavor very seriously.
