The franchise started as six black-and-white volumes, originally released by comic book publisher Oni Press. The graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley were later republished by HarperCollins’ Fourth Estate and got full-color editions via Nathan Fairbairn, released in August 2012 to April 2014.
Besides the 2010 movie, several spin-offs came off from the franchise, including the game Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Chengdu in 2010. Despite being unlisted in 2014, the game got a re-release titled “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition” on January 14, 2021.
