Scott Pilgrimage: Documenting Real-Life Locations from Scott Pilgrim

From the upcoming movie Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, you probably know that Scott Pilgrim is a slacker and musician who must battle "evil exes" in order to date the girl he loves.

What you may not know is that in the Scott Pilgrim comic series that inspired the movie, cartoonist Bryan Lee O'Malley incorporated actual places in Toronto in his art:

Dundas Square, the Wychwood Branch of the Toronto Public Library and Second Cup can all be found in the "Scott Pilgrimage" gallery on mad5l5in5's Flickr account, complete with side-by-side comparisons of O'Malley's illustrations and the way the sites currently appear.

The lengths she went to and the accuracy with which O'Malley was able to depict Toronto's city blocks are both impressive. In fact, there may be a legion or two of Scott Pilgrim fans out there who would love to see something like this gallery compiled into a companion volume.
