Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour release party!

You may have seen the trailer for a new movie called Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, a slacker romantic comedy crossed with video games. It's directed by Edgar Wright, who made Shaun of the Dead, which crossed romantic comedy with zombies, so he's good at that sort of thing. Here's the awesome international trailer, in case you have no idea what I'm talking about.
Anyway, Scott Pilgrim happens to be a very popular comic book series. So popular in fact, that they made the film before the last book was even finished, let alone released to the public. The sixth and final volume Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour was released today-- and for some comic book stores, that meant at midnight.

Lucky for me, my local comic shop, the wonderful Comicopia in Boston, was one of them. Since I'm good friends with the owner, I got there early, picked the music, took pictures, and ran to the back when he was running out of copies behind the counter. Good times were had by all-- about 30 people came, more people than I've ever seen in there at once. There were even some other bloggers there, but I forgot to get the name. (Ironically, this means the only picture of me at this party will be on someone else's blog!) But for my pics, read on!
Advertising the shindig.
It wouldn't be a comic book party without someone in costume!
Giving away miniposters and a chance to win an advanced screening ticket!

Look who's first in line!

The end of the line, at the back of the store.

But they eventually made it to the front!

And of course... A thing of beauty.
If you're curious, I will be reviewing the first Scott Pilgrim book soon enough!
