Torontonian Scott Pilgrim was just minding his own slacker business in life, dating high schooler Knives Chau because "it's just simple." But then, while dreaming about his barren, lonely existence, a cute-goggled girl zips through his dreams and turns his world upside down. But she's not just a dream; she's real. She's Ramona Flowers. Through some wild bit of luck, Ramona agrees to date Scott, but there's just one problem. She's got seven evil exes that he must defeat. Not just fight, but defeat.

This is the premise for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, where video game surreality intermingles with the real world to send Scott Pilgrim out on a dangerous quest for love. Fitting six volumes of comics into 112 minutes is a daunting task, so to help you keep this whirlwind of exes straight, we've whipped up a little guide after the jump rife with characteristics, textual back story, and all you need to know about the Seven Evil Exes.
