confusing, kind of all over the place. First 2 were amazing, this one kind of lacks.

The Scott Pilgrim series appears to get more and more bizarre with every passing volume. I don't say that as a bad thing; O'Malley's sense of humour seems to revel in this (who knew vegans had special powers?), which makes Scott Pilgrim & The Infinite Sadness the most enjoyable edition in the series to date.This volume also advances the plot significantly, as we see not only the third evil ex-boyfriend, but also Scott's evil ex-girlfriend, Envy Adams, who seems to know more about Ramona's past than Ramona would care for her to.

Wallace is back and just as hilarious. Loved the character of Envy!

Hrm. Back-story is usually my favorite, but this wasn't super exciting. Guess I wished for a little more forward motion too. Though Scott does have lots of time to freak out a bunch, which I appreciated. It also gives us some space to piece together some of the goofier conceits of the world -- video game allusions and stuff, which is kind of amusingly unclear, as all the characters already know all about it.Related, it amuses me when Scott doesn't have any clue what the super weird thing Ramona is talking about is and Ramona is like, "Ugh, Canada."Otherwise it wasn't as funny as Vol. 2, and already the beginning of Vol. 4 is super funnier, too. I do like that Kim is emerging as a character, a lot. Let's do that.

It's hard to explain just how awesome this series is or how much it makes you want to move to Canada. Well, maybe that second part is just me. Besides having the super awesome (I need another word besides awesome) characters and hilarious plot, this volume has one of Ramona's evil exes, who has vegan powers. There's a bargain store that makes people go blind with the sheer amount of deals. Ramona and one of Scott's exes have an extreme fight using a giant hammer. And Wallace Wells cemented himself as one of my favorite characters when he forced Scott to listen to the sound of sizzling bacon to prove that everything does not suck. These books need to be read... and they need to be read by you!

With Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness (Oni, $11.95) I think I'm finally getting into the groove of Brian Lee O'Malley's video games-meet-emo world view. I laughed quite a bit, and actually looked forward to the crazy fight scenes that pop in to resolve existential and emotional conflicts. I'm a bit concerned that the plot doesn't seem to be moving forward much, but we get enough drama, back story, action and humor to carry us through this volume at least. And I still feel sorry for poor Knives Chau, whose only mistake was falling for the charming but self-centered Scott.

Again, Scott Pilgrim is great, but start with number one, it¿s a little better than the other two.

WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB AND WE ARE HERE TO MAKE YOU THINK ABOUT DEATH AND GET SAD AND STUFF! I spent a couple hours relaxing with this third volume of Scott Pilgrim's adventures of his quarter life crisis. Being vegan for eight years, I found the Todd Ingram character to be hilarious. I loved the super powers combined with his hoity-toityness. So true. And the Vegan police. Yes, they exist, or at least they should. Even though Envy Adams is a bitch, she's still hot and the Metric song "Blacksheep" on the film was perfect. I almost feel sorry for her. Another great volume about Canadian slacker hipsters. Reading these makes me want to watch the film again just for kicks.ps. bonus guest artist pin up shots in the back of this volume.

I would probably give this one 4.5 stars if I could. I think it was my favorite out of the whole series. Having Envy incorporated into the main story line made Scott a little more sympathetic and I loved her crazy outfits. Also, chick fight! Those are always fun. Vegan Todd with his super vegan powers is probably my favorite of the evil exes and the fact that they almost were both taken out by a Walmart-like shopping center due to too much stimulus.Scott and Ramona are still pretty annoying, but I think that's the point. They're whiny slackers that aren't meant to be that sympathetic in the first place. That's why you have so many fun supporting characters.

Where I was really having a hard time liking it when reading the first two volumes, I'd have to say "Scott Pilgrim & The Infinite Sadness" is where I finally started to appeal to the story. It felt less of an 'anything goes' vibe that plagued the first two volumes and more of a concrete story with a core, in this case Scott's ex-girfriend Envy Adams. I also was able to tolerate Scott with this volume as he seemed to have a much more defined personality other than "stupid but silly". Don't get me wrong, the zaniness is still there, but it's now nicely balanced with a better focus of story and stronger identify of the characters. Happy to say, I'm looking forward to the next volume.

The continuing adventures of Scott Pilgrim and his friends... this is volume 3, where the high points are an ex-boyfriend's psychic superpowers due to veganism, and the resulting duel surrounding it. Entertainment value = high, brain function = low. Plenty of clever puns, jokes, pop culture references, and comments that would likely leave Boomers scratching their heads in confusion. If you're not one for random humor, stay far away from Scott Pilgrim!Otherwise, these books are a lot of fun and the quality of writing/drawing/humor has stayed high through the series thus far.

I don't know what to say about this series that isn't OMG I LOVE IT. I have the added benefit of having seen the movie first, so while the books are in black and white, they're also in color for me (in my head). Seriously, this series is the best and makes me want to a) buy them all, b) read all of them as fast as possible and c) watch the movie again and again.

I LOVED the movie and couldn't wait to read the graphic novels. BLM is a great artist. His dialogue is sometimes strained or awkward but it's quickly forgiven. I loved a lot of the back-story for the secondary characters that you didn't get to see much of in the film. I have to admit I was at times impatient to complete each installment and felt the plot dragged occasionally, but I know that was mostly my own feeling because I knew the film better - a sort of parallel universe version, if you will.I wish I could write a better review about the books themselves but in my mind I can't separate the cannon story from the film because I hearted it so much! I highly recommend these to anyone who feels the same.

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.
