FBBP #97 – Book Club! Scott Pilgrim v1

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , — Joseph Mastantuono @ 11:53 am

This week FBB reads the first volume of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s popular Scott Pilgrim series, Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life. With Edgar Wright’s film adaptation in production, this seemed like a fine time for everyone to read (or reread) the book, which Chris once infamously described as being “about video games and punk rock”. Is it really? Listen and find out!

We’ll be checking in on Scott Pilgrim again in the near future, and are accepting suggestions for future “Book Club” suggestions in the coming months. Let us know what you think!

    Awesome podcast though this week. Need to check out this book.
