Bryan O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim comic book series is now available in e-book form via a new application for iPhone and iPad. Released August 11, the free app includes a sample chapter and offers access to the full series of paid e-books.
Developed by ComiXology, the free Scott Pilgrim app is available directly through the App Store and also via the Comics by ComiXology App and its website. The first five volumes are priced at $6.99 each, while the final 200-page volume is $11.99. All bonus content from the print versions is included.
The app's free offerings including the first 37 pages of Scott Pilgrim Vol. 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life as well as a full-color version of O'Malley's Free Scott Pilgrim, a side-story comic originally published in black and white for Free Comic Book Day 2006.
Once readers purchase the comic through the Scott Pilgrim app, they'll also have access to the title through Comics by ComiXology's web and mobile applications.
Users outside North America can also try out a Scott Pilgrim app from HarperCollins, currently only for iPhones. That app offers the e-books of Scott Pilgrim Volumes 1 through 3 for £3.49 each and also allows users to choose an avatar from the Scott Pilgrim universe, find secrets hidden in the comics' artwork, and engage in social networking.
The Scott Pilgrim series is about a 23-year-old slacker from Toronto who falls in love with an American delivery girl, Ramona V. Flowers, then discovers he must defeat her seven "evil exes" in order to date her. The independent comic book publisher Oni Press began printing the series in 2004 and the final installment was released in July, becoming the rare graphic novel to top general best-seller charts. The series' feature film adaptation, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, is now making its way to international theaters.
