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.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is the second volume in the Scott Pilgrim series and the namesake for the 2010 movie. This volume gives us more backstory on Scott himself, including his high school relationship with Kim Pine, and contains the fight against Lucas Lee, Ramona's second evil ex! Plus, we get a bonus fight between Ramona Flowers and Scott's ex-girlfriend, Knives Chau (who is a personal favorite character of mine)! I found this volume to not be quite as quick or compelling as the first one, but you still can't go wrong with Brian Lee O'Malley's humor and video game/nerd references!I'd recommend this to graphic novel and video game fans, and, really, to anyone who enjoys humor and absurdity! Four stars!

Maybe not as good and fresh as the first one, but still addicting andgreat. Scott is such a bonehead. Favorite chapter name - ramona come closer.

Well, it's okay. Not any better or worse than the first one, I guess. I do wish the high school girlfriend had gone away. Scott is bad at dumping people. He's generally pathetic about everything. But she's also seeing him through extremely rose-colored glasses. Not that I can say that's out of character for a teenager. But she is 17.. she should get a clue sometime.And I guess I don't have anything more to say about it. Are we building to an interesting character arc? A really cool over-all 6-volume plan? Or is it just going to be Scott fighting the evil ex-boyfriends and then, the end?

Scott Pilgrim is awesome. But start with the first one, it¿s definitely the best.

Volume two of the Scott Pilgrim series continues the mixing of indie-hipster chic with video game love that began in the first volume. This volume sees a continuation of the budding romance between ¿American Ninja Delivery Girl¿ Ramona Flowers, and uber-slacker Scott Pilgrim, as Scott continues his quest to defeat Ramona's evil ex-boyfriends so that they can be together.Second volumes of series are always in an interesting position: the first volume has to set up all of the basic characters and conflicts, and it's only in the second part that characters are allowed to develop on a deeper level. This is something definitely true in this book, as we see more of all of the characters, especially Kim Pine and Knives Chau (who, we are reminded, is 17 years old). Add in some frightfully funny scenes, and one really good recipe for Sheppard's pie, and you have yourself a winner!

These books are SO FREAKING FUNNY it almost makes me ANGRY! Man, to write dialogue this way!! How is it so funny!!! I love it!!!! !!!x4!Probably my favorite is the massive volume of tiny freakouts Scott is constantly having. So funny, and also, so good a way to make him an understandable character. My understanding of him is a lot different now than it was at the start of the first book. I like him this way lots better. Slightly pathetic. Super anxious. Not really a winner. But somehow winning sometimes, by default.I hope next we learn what's driving Ramona, because I'm still not 100% sure she's worth it. Will probably add another star, once she is.

a little disjointed like scott and hard to follow but quite good.

Still a fun series but this volume needed more Wallace!

Another short, fun, trip through Bryan Lee O'Malley's Toronto with the slacker Scott Pilgrim and his pleasantly pathetic life. Again, lot's of fun youth culture puns, video game references, obscure hipster band references, and awesome action packed duels. I really enjoy the occasional footnote about Canadian culture and history, which sometimes serve as backdrops to the plot lines.

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.

This one gets an extra star because I like the evil ex-boyfriend more than the first book. He's so incredibly stupid. And we get the Kim Pines/Scott Pilgrim back story, which was entertaining. More Kim Pines is always a good thing!

I know that this is a story that's more about the moment and less than anything else that deals with a beginning, middle, and end. I get that. I even dig the art, the characters, the zaniness of the things that happen. Still, there's a massive roadblock that prevents me from totally enjoying this series, and unfortunately, it's the main character, Scott Pilgrim.There's something about him that sets my teeth on edge where he acts stupid that in some way is expected to be hilarious. But I just can't get it. Maybe he reminds me too much of Ctrl+Alt+Del's Ethan, who also shares the same trait of being stupidly clueless and yet acts he's the center of the universe, expecting applause.Oh well, maybe the next volume will have something more interesting.

I love this series, I might have to go buy them when I finish reading them all (and the movie). Seriously, the books are hilarious and fun. I can't wait to read more of them.

I read this one while sitting in the bookstore (like I did with volume one), but no strange encounter with a stranger prompted it this time. Hah. It wasn't as fun or funny as the first book, but I still enjoyed it and have since ordered the whole series for the hubby (yeah, "for him") as a Christmas gift. There were a few too many flashbacks in this volume for my taste, but the story is still intriguing and I'm looking forward to the next one!

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.
