Question Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

Recently saw the movie "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" and enjoyed it enough that I think I'd like to read the comics. Was wondering if anyone knows of an online place where one could buy the comics in ebook form - I would assume PDF.

The only places I could find were this store that I don't know anything about and only carries 2 volumes:

http://www.waterstones.com/waterston...y&searchType=2

And this mention of an iPhone app which is really not how I want to go - I like being able to backup and read my books on any device:

Any help anyone can offer in pointing me to a legitimate pay site where I can buy ebook versions of the Scott Pilgrim volumes would be greatly appreciated.

don't think there is anywhere to get them legally just yet.

They do seem to exist; this site has Volumes 3-5 for sale:

http://www.angusrobertson.com.au/sea...diatype/EBook/

And Amazon seems to offer Volume 6, but I can't imagine that a Mobi --> Epub conversion will work well for a comic book.

I also read an online article that seemed to indicate that Amazon and the iBooks store used to carry all 6 volumes, but the quality was apparently fairly bad and the books were pulled - presumably for cleaning up.

If anyone knows a site where all 6 can still be purchased as pdf/epub, then I'd give it a try.

EDIT: And then there's this, which appears to be an Australia site. Not sure if I can order from here as an American.

ahh cool. well comics are best in cbz format because they're usually jpg's so not sure if it'll be in mobi when downloaded from the amazon site, it might end up being cbz or cbr.
i think i converted one of my walking dead comic books to epub/pdf but found that the original format is way better. on my kobo anyway

Waterstones is a reputable UK & Irish bricks-and-mortar bookshop, and the link above is indeed their website.

But is suspect you may be bitten by Geographic Restrictions if you try to buy ebooks from there.

Tried purchasing from the Ebookbop site last night, but they had to immediately issue a "no longer available from the publisher" refund.
