Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
O'Malley's cult-favorite series about a Canadian slacker attempting to defeat his crush-object's seven evil ex-boyfriends is the weirdest, funniest and coolest Western variation on the manga aesthetic to date, and the third volume is even more hilarious than the first two-mostly because O'Malley's running gags are the kind that improve with repetition. At their core, the Scott Pilgrim books are outrageous allegories for coming to terms with a partner's former romantic relationships. This time, Scott's pitted against Todd Ingram, the current boyfriend of his ex, rock star Envy Adams; they battle at a discount department store and a rock club. Unfortunately, Todd's got psychic powers, because he's a vegan ("graduated top of his class from vegan academy and everything"), and he's also a much better bass player. On top of that, Scott's band, Sex BobOmb, can't quite get it together; 17-year-old ninja Knives Chau is still obsessed with him; and the mysterious Ramona Flowers is becoming envious of Envy. O'Malley's story zooms through its slalom-course plot, peppered with delectably witty dialogue, and he pulls in wild ideas and images from manga, role-playing gaming (Ramona's hipster handbag is actually a "subspace suitcase" from which she draws a "large hammer, +2 against girls") and video games.

Soap opera is right. You got Scott's evil ex whose dating one of Ramona's evil exes. Then there's Scott's recent ex. And it's all over the place. I like that Scott at least you know admitted that what with the way he broke up with Knives. And she and Neil are adorable (please give him a chance, girl). Also liked the growing friendship between Ramona and Scott's sister and especially with Kim. Near the end I'm thinking oh boy Scott has more exes to face doesn't he? Well good luck with that.

Bryan lee O¿Malley makes yet another volume to the Scott Pilgrim series. Volume 3 of the series is more complicated than the first two series. There is more to be explained once Envy Adams steps into the picture. Envy is one of Scotts Ex-Loves. About a year and a half ago she broke Scott¿s heart, and now she¿s back with her evil rock band, who is trying to get Scott and his band to open for them in only a few days. This is just enough time for Scott to face Ramona¿s evil ex-boyfriend Todd Ingram. Overall Vol.3 is a book that can keep your attention but is not meant to be taking too seriously. Anyone who enjoyed the first two series, I highly recommend that you read Scott Pilgrim Vol, 3.

Indie comics like the Scott Pilgrim series are the soul of the comics world. This book cleverly mashes together a hipster storyline with weird superhero overtones. I read this one to get on the band wagon before the movie drops later in 2010. I'm glad I did. Once I started I wanted to catch up on the story before the final volume is published. If this is your thing you may like to check out the Love and Rockets series. It's brilliant.
