Overview

  • That’s right, folks! Put down the video game controller! Skip that rehearsal for your band! Make whatever sacrifices you must to those comic gods you hold so dear! Just make sure you’re ready because Bryan Lee
    O’Malley and Scott Pilgrim are back! Well, a couple months have passed since the last time we caught up with our intrepid hero, but what can change in a few short months? Well, not much has... Scott’s still living with his roommate Wallace Wells. He’s still playing in a mediocre rock band named
    Sex Bob-omb. And most importantly, he’s still dating the lovely Ramona
    Flowers while working his way through the gaggle of superpowered, superstylish,
    superevil ex-boyfriends determined to take him down. But something is
    different. Don’t look now, but Scott Pilgrim may actually be getting it together. And it’s a good thing, too, because Scott is about to confront
    Ramona’s most intimidating ex yet!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

After three volumes of hilarious slacking-a jobless trek of playing in a band, wobbling between romantic entanglements and battling the seven evil ex-boyfriends of his current girlfriend, Ramona Flowers-Scott Pilgrim must finally make choices. Does he truly love mysterious messenger Ramona? Will his band SexBobOmb play out? Can he pay the rent? Can he keep a job? And why is be being followed by two ninjas? O'Malley's manga-tinged youth comedy has gotten more confident as the series has become a veritable institution, with an eight-page color section to open this volume, but the story, too, reveals new layers of character. This time out the main complication in Scott's life is Julie, a high school might-have-been-girlfriend. Cute Julie keeps showering him with attention, forcing him to deal with his feelings for Ramona, who also has a visitor from her past. The references from indie band lore, video games and manga keep the story sharp, while the occasional fight scenes-Scott must face two opponents at once!-are perfect metaphors for the uncertainty and excitement of being an early 20-something. O'Malley's sparkling dialogue captures the bravado, insensitivity and engaging cluelessness of a generation for whom a dishwashing job constitutes "getting it together" big time. (Nov.)

I started reading the Scott Pilgrim series earlier this year and have been hooked ever since. Scott is a total goof and I love the combination of video game references, anime violence and romantic foolishness. I would recommend the Scott Pilgrim series for men and women, especially those who grew up in their local indy music scene with all the infighting, bed-hopping, nerdyness, and love of music. The series is funny and witty with lots of sci fi and pop culture references. Scott is a lovable, lazy idiot surrounded by a cast of musicians, restaurant workers, baristas, and teenage girls.
