Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour is the sixth and final volume in the Scott Pilgrim series. The books end on a high with the final showdown between Scott and Gideon, Ramona's seventh evil ex. The whole series has built up to this moment and it doesn't disappoint. Lots of surprises and plenty of resolution for all the characters. I still wish we could have had even more of the hilarious Wallace Wells, but I'll take what I can get. I still think that Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness is the best volume of the series, but Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour comes pretty close to perfect. I mean, any graphic novel that makes a reference to "The Tribe" is pretty awesome in my book!As with the others, I recommend the Scott Pilgrim series to graphic novel fans and video game nerds alike. There is a little something in there for everyone! I give it four stars.

In the final chapter of the Scott Pilgrim saga, Scott finds himself on the verge of a battle with Ramona's seventh and final evil ex, the head honcho, Gideon. He's the ex who put the league together, and he's the ex who still controls part of Ramona's head. Scott must decide once and for all if Ramona is worth the trouble and if their relationship can stand the test. As with the other Scott Pilgrim Graphic Novels, this one is heavily influenced by video game culture. At one point in the series, Scott even earns another "life." O'Malley again has a way of not only telling a fun, funny, and timely story, but he also manages to capture the pitfalls, dramas, struggles, and triumphs in any new relationship. I would recommend these graphic novels for any high school library without hesitation. (Grades 9-12).

Good ending to a fun series.

It all goes by so quickly, and I was sad to see the series end, but loved reading it! This is a thick issue and it wraps things up for almost all the characters. It's Scott at some of his most awkward ("but it was horrible for everyone and that includes you") and epic. Ramona still kicks a lot of ass. As always, there are lots of excellent references to movies, video games, and other awesome stuff. Just so I don't spoil anything, I'll say that this is a great ending that was really satisfying... we all live in our own heads, but how much do we let other people in?

** spoiler alert ** Four stars for fear that Envy's solo hair will eat me. And for Gideon coming across as a closeted gay man while fighting for possession of the "doll" who got away. I liked Gideon; he was appropriately evil. More sword fights, throw backs to moments from previous books, and Stephen Stills coming out! His comment about coming out in book five, but Scott being too busy for Stephen to bother him still makes me giggle a little. The meta parts of this series were the best parts, I think...moreFour stars for fear that Envy's solo hair will eat me.

The concept is fun and there were definitely moments were I laughed out loud, but I don't think these are going to be comics I come back to regularly

A better ending than the movie, that clears up a couple confusing things about it. You also get the sense that characters are finally maturing (some) and are willing to face the change that comes from growing up.Anyway, a nice tie up to the series.

Though I like the way the movie end, I think I like the ending in the last book better. I loved the whole Scott Pilgrim series, the storylines were fun and I spent a lot of time laughing. I plan to eventually by all six of these books (and the movie).

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.

The final conclusion. Yeah! Yes, it is satisfying. It speaks to the 20 year old version of me. #6 is even more fun, witty, and self-deprecating. Good job Bryan Lee O'Malley. I look forward to seeing new stuff by you in the future. Ps. I also like your playlist.

To start off, I was a little disappointed in that this book is covered in the movie which we just saw last week ¿ I felt like I already knew what was going to happen. However, there were some cool moments in this graphic novel and as always, it is really funny. At the beginning of this book, Scott is trying to avoid fighting Gideon, especially because he believes Ramona has gone back to Gideon. But he is depressed and has been laying on the couch for four months. So finally his friends convince him to get up and start training, and then it is the support of his friends that gets him through his final fight with Gideon. Of course, he succeeds but it is because he figures out that Gideon is in Ramona¿s head and defeats that part of him. And Ramona and Scott forge a more modern relationship together. Ends sweetly, and it¿s a good ending to the series, although I could have read about Scott Pilgrim forever.

Good ending. I'm tempted to give this the sentimental round-up, but really the book is mostly action, with a little around the edges, so there's only so far it can go. It is the necessary fight, of course. So it's ok. The big bad.Scott. His "extra life" face. I just love him. I love him at the beginning with the crappy memory, when he's "tryyyyyying..." and totally not trying, in the middle when he's all excited to successfully kick an ass, at the end when he's a very bad, confident cook. He's just the funniest hero of all time.So the "get Gideon out of her head" thing works ok. But dudes I really have to say on the permanent record that the evil mission "to rule Ramona's future love life" is just not that funny to me. I mean I know it's supposed to be evil, it's just, actually pretty evil. It's sort of a bummer.And I'm gonna also go on the record as the only person on the whole internet who's apprehensive about the movie.But, can't wait to reread these someday.

Was that a Tribe reference? That New Zealand show? If it was, then I love this more. Anyway, this one is the final showdown as Scott and Gideon fight. So much craziness ensues. I love it! And yeah, still like Kim Pine. One of my favorites out of the characters. And Knives is adorable. Even Envy had her moments. I don't know but hadn't read the series sooner. After seeing the movie, I thought about it but then forgot about it. Now finally read all the volumes, and its a fun, at times, random, series and you like but moments where you don't like Scott. With video games references mixed in. Awesome. And makes me want to see the movie again.
