Win Scott Pilgrim’s Odds & Ends (and Stickers)!

Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, the sixth and final volume in Bryan Lee O'Malley's brilliant and hilarious graphic novel series, has just been published. This week the feature film adaptation Scott Pilgrim vs. the World smashes into theaters.

Could anything make us more Scott Pilgrim-crazy?Could anything make us more Scott Pilgrim-crazy?

Yes: stickers. And also Scott Pilgrim — Full Colour Odds & Ends 2008, a collection of short stories and color pieces that O'Malley has created over the last few years. Originally printed for the 2008 San Diego Comic Con, the book is being published by Oni Press on August 12th.

But you can win one of two free copies (and did I mention stickers?) from Powells.com! You don't have to fight seven evil ex-boyfriends, either. Just leave a comment below informing us how many evil exes you have. (We don't need details, just a number. Unless you want to share...)

Hurry! The contest ends on 11:59 pm PST Thursday, August 12, 2010. We will randomly select two lucky winners who will be notified via email (so make sure you include your actual email address — don't worry, only we can see it).

    Ben August 9th, 2010 at 4:30 pm

  29.  
    Melissa August 9th, 2010 at 4:55 pm

    I have one evil boyfriend. Luckily, the rest have been nice. However my biggest evil ex (as in would be the boss at the end of the last level) is an ex-best friend, not boyfriend. Does that count?? :)

    LOVE Scott Pilgrim and can't wait to see the movie!!

  30.  
    Lila August 9th, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    I have only two evil exes. I have several to whom I am indifferent. Does that count?

  31.  
    KM August 9th, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    1 evil, 3 or 4 just plain effed up

  32.  
    Brian August 9th, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    3 evil exes, and one that is uncomfortably close to my current girlfriend...I smell trouble!

  33.  
    Cat August 9th, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    Truly evil? Just one. No wait, make that two. Ok, maybe three...

  34.  
    Amber August 9th, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    A handful. And by handful, I mean 5.

  35.  
    kimmay August 9th, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    Only one evil ex. The rest are all nice. But the one evil one contains the evil of seven.

  36.  
    Eugene August 9th, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    None, but I am sure I am probably one of my exes evil ex-boyfriends.

  37.  
    Kristen August 9th, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    Have 4 evil ex boyfriends, but luckily they are only minor bosses in the video game hierarchy. But Gideon Graves could be my evil ex-boyfriend anytime he wants.

  38.  
    amy August 9th, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    I have 13 evil boyfriends.

  39.  
    Beth August 9th, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    I have eight exes, but only THREE are really evil. But they're REALLY evil. Schemes and samurai swords kind of evil.

  40.  
    Hugemean August 9th, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    None, but I am sure I am on somebody's elses list.

  41.  
    Stephen August 9th, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    0 . . . But there is one kinda-ex who happens to be fairly evil! Dah well, it's random anyways.

  42.  
    Jared August 9th, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    I only have one EVIL ex. How evil? She hated Amelie! Someone who hates Amelie must be completely devoid of a soul!

  43.  
    raggmopp August 9th, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    Just one evil ex...but I'd still definitely nail her...

  44.  
    Beth August 9th, 2010 at 5:10 pm

    I have eight exes, but only THREE are really evil.

  45.  
    Alyssa York August 9th, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    Evil exes? Hey yeah, sure,... in my dreams. ;_; Actually, I have had a dream that I was with someone, and then later on in that dream he wasn't my boyfriend anymore for some bizarre reason I can't recall. Then he and I battled Tekkon style for some Red Bull, because we both wanted the "Wings" achievement. I lost, and I woke up a little bit after I died. Kind of got my revenge by going out and buying a Red Bull, snickering and thinking to my self that, heh heh, he isn't real and I am and I can enjoy this and he can't, and that the dream stops for both of us when I wake up and that he was TRULY the one that died because I haven't seen in a dream of mine since.

    I guess you could say I'M the evil ex...Maybe? With that being said, I'm probably a little weird,... Alright fine, most likely very weird. Can I have my swag now?

  46.  
    Nick August 9th, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    I don't speak with most of my exes, but there's only one I'd consider totally evil.

  47.  
    Collin W August 9th, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    Just 1

  48.  
    Kenneth August 9th, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    Autumn August 9th, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    None, just a couple goombas.

  50.  
    Kate August 9th, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    Big fat zero! :P

  51.  
    Taryn August 9th, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Zero, but one has potential.

  52.  
    Rob August 9th, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    19! And I'm sure if they knew each other they would become a league of Scott Pilgrim proportions! Brian Lee O'Malley might of well have been writing about my past. Thank goodness I found my Ramona Flowers!

  53.  
    Robin August 9th, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    I have plenty of exes, but none of them are evil. 0 is a number!

    Hallie August 9th, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    2

  55.  
    Randi August 9th, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    No evil exes, unless I can count bosses, in which case 4, all worthy of their own mini-bossfight in the inevitable game of my life. :( I hope I'm not the evil ex. :P

  56.  
    dftd August 9th, 2010 at 5:30 pm

    I have π evil exes. Ok, really I just want free stuff.

  57.  
    Annely August 9th, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    Two extremely evil ex-boyfriends... imagine monicle, nehru jacket, white Persian cat, and underground layer equipped with death ray.

  58.  
    Brian August 9th, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    One definitely evil ex, and two of questionable morals.

  59.  
    Jesse August 9th, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    BobY August 9th, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Only one of my exes is evil. She's in a league of her own.

  62.  
    Jeremy August 9th, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    I'll say one evil, one crazy. Kind of Knives crazy.

  63.

  66.  
    Sherrie August 9th, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    Just one extremely angry evil Father of my sons. Do not feel like an X that is how awful it was. Do not want to believe I was ever married.

  67.  
    maria August 9th, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    they're all evil; thank goodness i only bred with the one.

  68.  
    Julie August 9th, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    I had two exes who wanted to destroy and subsequently rule the world with iron fists--one amoral economics major and one bitterly cruel film critic.

    If there are ever dictators who attempt to bore the populace to tears with Advanced Third Reich rule recitations, or that simply puncture everyone's dreams with the barbs of supposed wit...well, don't say I didn't warn you!

  69.  
    Brad August 9th, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    I have around 37 evil ex's, but I am sure if you asked them I would be the evil one...

  70.

  77.  
    Beth H. August 9th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    Only three evil exes out of four boyfriends. Don't think that's too bad, personally. ;-)

  78.

  81.  
    Nicole August 9th, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Two evil exes, and I sort of had to battle my current boyfriend's super-evil ex before we were able to officially date.

  82.  
    Dpbeaches August 9th, 2010 at 8:06 pm

    I think 16.

  83.  
    Jessica August 9th, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    Two...two evil exes. So not a league. A duo I suppose.

    K August 9th, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Just the one but he had the gall to show up playing a gig at a house behind my apartment. When I heard him singing outside my window, I thought I'd gone stark raving mad.

  86.  
    Nicchan August 9th, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    I have 0 evil exes, but I have 2 evil ex friends! :D

  87.

  93.  
    a August 10th, 2010 at 4:19 am

    Two. One is pure evil. The other? Has managed to stay this side of lawful evil.

  94.  
    Colette August 10th, 2010 at 6:54 am

    Well, I have 3 living and one dead. At my age you begin to outlast them which is true revenge.

  95.  
    Tam August 10th, 2010 at 9:34 am

    Four, with one being so evil that he makes the rest look like saints in comparison.

  96.  
    monkeywomantoo August 10th, 2010 at 10:33 am

    2 evil, 1 clinically insane, several emotionally retarded. all still friends, except of course the evil two.

  98.  
    Amanda August 10th, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    One evil ex-boyfriend. And boy was he a doozy. But I'm sure if you asked him I would be HIS evil ex.

  99.  
    Jay August 10th, 2010 at 2:56 pm
