Editorial Reviews

Douglas Wolk
The story sounds, on the surface, like nothing we haven't seen a hundred times before: A mopey twentysomething in Toronto is playing in a small-time band and trying to figure out his love life. The difference is that this one is dizzyingly hilarious, buoyant and inventive, in both substance and style…the deliberate cuteness of O'Malley's artwork serves his narrative, making it flow smoothly through its berserk stylistic hairpin turns.
—The Washington Post
Publishers Weekly
The first volume of this slacker-manga-action hybrid introduced Scott Pilgrim, a video game-playing regular guy whose love life leads him into irregular trouble. This second book opens with a peek into Scott's past: we see his early romantic troubles and the talentless band that sprang from them. In the present, Scott's new romance with mysterious messenger girl Ramona Flowers sends his former girlfriend, teenage Knives Chau, into a fury that culminates in an all-out kung fu battle between the two. In the surrealist twists that fill O'Malley's work, characters who are introduced in dreams end up playing major parts in the "real" life of the story, and you never know when the meandering lives of these Canadian 20-somethings are going to shift into high-action fight sequences. O'Malley gained acclaim and award nominations for the first Scott Pilgrim book, and he deserves the recognition. The story continued here is delightful, light, clever and surprising. O'Malley takes a manga influence-big eyes, informational inserts and explosions of energy-and throws in pop culture references-a band named the Clash at Demonhead, Ramona's skater turned movie star ex-boyfriend-to create a fresh, grungy style. The narrative jumps, combined with sharp, sardonic dialogue, make this a great oddball tale that captures the energy of a generation. (June) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

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.

Loved love the movie and thought instead of the world, should it be Scott vs evil ex or something Anyway this has well Scott fighting another one of Ramona's exes. Then you have Ramona fighting someone as well. This ones good. 4.5 for me. Though I felt sorry for Knives and Kim though loved Knives new look. Who doesn't love a good scarf? And what a way to end it and go to the next volume.

While I enjoyed the first book better Scott Pilgrim is still funny stuff. I clearly am not the age group for this book, as I didn’t get some of the references, but I still enjoyed it. The plot was a little too spacey as opposed to the more straight forward tale in the last book. No matter what, I’m curious as to how Scott deals with all these evil exes.

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.
