Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

O'Malley's cult-favorite series about a Canadian slacker attempting to defeat his crush-object's seven evil ex-boyfriends is the weirdest, funniest and coolest Western variation on the manga aesthetic to date, and the third volume is even more hilarious than the first two"mostly because O'Malley's running gags are the kind that improve with repetition. At their core, the Scott Pilgrim books are outrageous allegories for coming to terms with a partner's former romantic relationships. This time, Scott's pitted against Todd Ingram, the current boyfriend of his ex, rock star Envy Adams; they battle at a discount department store and a rock club. Unfortunately, Todd's got psychic powers, because he's a vegan ("graduated top of his class from vegan academy and everything"), and he's also a much better bass player. On top of that, Scott's band, Sex BobOmb, can't quite get it together; 17-year-old ninja Knives Chau is still obsessed with him; and the mysterious Ramona Flowers is becoming envious of Envy. O'Malley's story zooms through its slalom-course plot, peppered with delectably witty dialogue, and he pulls in wild ideas and images from manga, role-playing gaming (Ramona's hipster handbag is actually a "subspace suitcase" from which she draws a "large hammer, +2 against girls") and video games.

The story is great and the humor is fantastic.

Waited for the entire run before purchasing, but definitely worth the wait!

This is the funniest comic I've read, and best in the Scott Pilgrim series.

I can still barely believe that the Scott Pilgrim series is as good as it is. Author Bryan Lee O'Malley has taken a relationship drama and infused it with numerous references to video games, indie music, manga, and other niche areas of popular culture to create a world where characters are completely fine with breaking out into a massive, over-the-top fight that involves the battleground imploding at the end.

Scott Pilgrim, for those of you who aren't caught up, is a 23-year-old slacker who lives in a small Canadian town around Toronto. He is in a bad band named Sex Bob-Omb along with the completely cool (so cool he has no emotions) Stephen Stills and the angry Kim Pine (whom he dated in high school). After breaking up with a 17-year-old high school girl named Knives Chau, Scott began dating Ramona Flowers, an American now living in Canada and working as an Amazon.ca delivery girl. However, before Scott can officially date Ramona, he must defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends. He has already taken out 2, but the next on the list, Todd Ingram, may prove to be more than Scott can handle.

Picking up pretty much exactly where the second volume, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, left off, Scott and Ramona have just learned that Todd is dating Natalie V. "Envy" Adams, Scott's girlfriend before Knives who ripped his heart out. Through flashbacks, we learn how Envy met Scott as a shy anime fan and eventually turned into a rock goddess. If that weren't bad enough, Todd is a vegan, and in Scott's world, vegans attain vast psychic powers that make him a much more formidable opponent than Matthew Patel and Lucas Lee.

As usual, the battles don't take up the whole book; most of the pages are devoted to hilarious character studies.

How to describe Scott Pilgrim and his strange little world? It's funny, to be sure. It's seemingly normal, to a degree. When we meet new characters, we often get their level rating (Scott is, of course, "awesome"). Everything about the series is so Generation Now--Scott is straight but he has a gay roommate; they share a small studio apartment and sleep in the same bed, platonically; Scott plays in a band with a female drummer, which is cool, although the band doesn't quite rock at first (but they have heart). None of it is overdone, though. In fact, there's so much genuine sweetness to it (in a good way; not in some treacly, sentimental manner) that you can't help but wish you were part of the group--part of this world, even, because it's a pretty different world.

That is to say, it's Toronto, but some magical, videogame-like qualities exist. These characters exist mostly in the real world but at the same time, it has some decidedly offbeat properties. Scott is an innocent, a supercool, eminently likable cipher who happens to be almost irresistibly endearing.

As the series begins, 23-year-old Scott has just started dating Knives Chau, a 17-year-old high school student. It's all very innocent; they haven't even kissed, just hugged. Scott is recovering from a devastating breakup a year ago and views Knives as a way to move on without getting his heart too involved. His friends and sister waste no time ripping into Scott for this robbing-the-cradle transgression, but Scott sticks with it, even after meeting Ramona Flowers. Ramona is the girl of Scott's dreams, literally. He keeps seeing her in visions, so when he sees her at a party, come to life in strange garb, he makes his move.

Format: Paperback
"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," the striking film version of the inspired series by Bryan Lee O'Malley, had a disappointing run this year in terms of box office. Even with surprising critical support, the film fell below expectations from a money making standpoint. Now, as we are poised for the DVD release (11/9/10), I think the world of Scott Pilgrim is about to explode as new fans to the irreverent charm of Scott and company discover the delightfully skewed source material. And I thought, I'd recap the highlights as I've gone back to appreciate the six volumes anew.

Volume Three: Scott Pilgrim & The Infinite Sadness. In 2006, O'Malley released my favorite volume to date. As Scott's ex Envy (a successful rocker) is back, it provides a welcome romantic foil for Ramona. Their break-up was devastating to Scott and much of this chapter's humor is derived by exploiting the toxicity of relationships. But dealing with Envy is only part of the problem when it's discovered that Ramona's third ex is also in Envy's band (and dates her!) The overlapping of various bonds make this a delightfully complicated mess and the Vegan agenda has never been so diabolically wrought. Great, funny stuff!

Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 3 / 9781932664225

I first came to the Scott Pilgrim franchise via the movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and have very much enjoyed the graphic novels thus far. Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 3 covers the time from the introduction of The Clash at Demonhead (as well as Envy and Todd as important romantic figures in Scott and Ramona's past) to the conclusion of the Scott/Todd battle.

If Vol. 3 has a flaw, it's perhaps in the overly slow pace. The volume does a great job of fleshing out the backstory of Scott and Envy, as well as making Envy into a very sympathetic character instead of just "that woman who broke Scott's heart", but at the same time, there's an overall feeling of killing time until the next volume in some ways. There's a several page sequence where Todd and Scott are forced to run through "Honest Ed's", which would appear to be something of a tourist shop containing EVERYTHING EVER SOLD EVER and the boys are thoroughly overwhelmed by the awesomeness of the store, and then the store implodes, and... somehow it lacks the same zaniness and punch of earlier volumes.

On the other hand, the volume does a great job of exploring why money and fame don't automatically equal happiness, and it's nice to that the sympathetic treatment and deep characterization of all of the characters thus far (especially Scott's ex-girlfriends) is being extended into a meaningful exploration of Envy and Scott and how the two of them grew apart as Envy started reaching more for the stars and Scott resisted out of a sense that their band was just for having fun and meeting "chicks".
