Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. After three volumes of hilarious slacking—a jobless trek of playing in a band, wobbling between romantic entanglements and battling the seven evil ex-boyfriends of his current girlfriend, Ramona Flowers—Scott Pilgrim must finally make choices. Does he truly love mysterious messenger Ramona? Will his band SexBobOmb play out? Can he pay the rent? Can he keep a job? And why is be being followed by two ninjas? O'Malley's manga-tinged youth comedy has gotten more confident as the series has become a veritable institution, with an eight-page color section to open this volume, but the story, too, reveals new layers of character. This time out the main complication in Scott's life is Julie, a high school might-have-been-girlfriend. Cute Julie keeps showering him with attention, forcing him to deal with his feelings for Ramona, who also has a visitor from her past. The references from indie band lore, video games and manga keep the story sharp, while the occasional fight scenes—Scott must face two opponents at once!—are perfect metaphors for the uncertainty and excitement of being an early 20-something. O'Malley's sparkling dialogue captures the bravado, insensitivity and engaging cluelessness of a generation for whom a dishwashing job constitutes getting it together big time. (Nov.)

Review

"Scott Pilgrim is the best book ever. It is the chronicle of our time. With Kung Fu, so, yeah: perfect." Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer "One of the best things to happen to printed comics this millennium." Ain't It Cool News "A hilarious, idiosyncratic gem." Washington Post "A great oddball tale that captures the energy of a generation." Publishers Weekly "An inventive, genre-tweaking tale of young love, platonic bed-sharing and epic battles unlike anything else you will likely pick up. So, go on, pick it up." E! Online "Scott Pilgrim is the best 23-year-old ever. Like Proust's Swann, he has a story that takes multiple volumes to unfold, except Pilgrim is even more awesome because he's in a comic book ... the series is wildly enjoyable for its absurdist humor, its indelible characters and its growing, inevitable sense of melancholy as Pilgrim becomes that most terrifying of things: 24 years old." Glen David Gold, author of Carter Beats the Devil and Sunnyside --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

They are witty and fun and I enjoy them greatly!

The Scott Pilgrim series is an absolutely awesome storyline and I highly recommend it to anyone with a geeky side, especially if you enjoy video games.

I started to read the series some years ago, with book three's release, and have been following ever since.

First of all, I'd like to recommend the entire Scott Pilgrim saga. But I chose to only review this volume in particular because, in my opinion, it is the best one in the series. It may not be as charming as the first volume but it is the one that takes Scott on an emotional trip just as much as a physical one. What I mean to say is that the book puts Scott in tons of peril not only because of the 4th evil exe he has to fight but also because of his inner flaws and shaky past coming back to trouble him. In the end he grows as a character and so does Ramona, and everything turns out honky dory despite all their troubles and flaws. For me, this is O'Malley's biggest step in his saga and he does it exceptionally well. There are more reasons to enjoy this volume, but that's for you to figure out.

IN SHORT: IT'S THE BEST IN THE SERIES BECAUSE IT IS BOTH EPIC AND AMBITIOUS IN IT'S NARRATIVE BUT WHAT MAKES IT THE BEST IS THAT O'MALLEY PULLS IT ALL OFF VERY WELL.

This is probably my favorite volume of this incredible series. The color format of the first few pages is great and the art all throughout is really amazing. This is the volume where the illustrator really perfected his artistic style. Bryan Lee O'Malley always manages to impress me with the way that he uses video game inspired fantasy while still having completely human characters that are totally relatable.
I have never been in love with a comic book series so completely before.
Read these comics, see the movie, read "Lost at Sea," visit bryan's website, and listen to Kupek because I am having a REALLY hard time disliking anything Bryan Lee O'Malley does and I imagine you will have the same problem.

Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 4: Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together / 9781932664492

I got hooked into the Scott Pilgrim franchise after very much enjoying the movie. I'm surprised at how much the movie resembled the first few Scott Pilgrim volumes, but with Volume 4 we're definitely entering territory where most of this graphic novel wasn't included in the movie. It's not hard to see why most of the material here couldn't make it into the film adaptation -- as delightful as this volume is, there's quite a lot of slow character growth to wade through as Scott Pilgrim does, indeed, grapple to get things together.

In this volume, Scott must try to find a job, a new apartment, and defeat another evil ex of Ramona's while also grappling with his own past relationship demons in the form of Knives Chau's exceedingly dangerous father. Scott is as sweet and clueless as ever (thinking "the L-word" is, well, a *different* L-word) and the fun video game humor is still here in full force (as when Scott asks if working his way up the restaurant chain is like the Final Fantasy "job system". Characterizations continue to deepen as Scott and Ramona have to decide how they feel about each other over the long haul... and additionally have to deal with the boredom and ennui that can set in from time to time in a stable relationship.

If you like the Scott Pilgrim series so far, you'll like seeing Scott start pulling his life together and dealing with things a little more maturely than before; if you're not sure how you feel about the series and are looking whether or not to continue, this volume is a little slow and somewhat more of the same, but it's nice to see Scott and Ramona develop their relationship more and start to become "real" adults rather than overgrown kids.

Format: Paperback
This very aptly titled volume is a turning point for the series, in which it stops being just an amusing slacker comedy and pop culture blender and starts to offer some surprisingly insightful commentary on relationships, maturity, and the many different ways that people can mislead each other and themselves.

All of the characters start to slowly come to grips with the fact that they must reconcile the demands of an adult life with the trappings of the arrested, prolonged adolescence they're living in and decide how (or whether) they're going to finally embrace adulthood.

Also, it's damn funny, with some of the best visual gags in this always amusing series (Scott in the purse is one of those perversely hilarious images the memory of which had me chuckling at odd times during the day, sometimes to the discomfort of the people around me. Nice visual metaphor too; I guess that settles once and for all who is pulling all the weight in that relationship, at least at that point). A lot of the elements that bogged down the first half of the story, like the voluminous cast and sometimes annoying dialogue, have to a great degree been wrangled into submission (though are still sometimes troublesome).

It was a long while out the gate (much like its cast of characters), but with "Scott Pilgrim Gets it Together" this series finally reaches a level of quality that justifies its acclaim.

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 Four: Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together. In this episode released in 2007, it finally seems time for Scott and Ramona to settle into a more conventionally sane relationship! But as their happiness is peaking, Scott is being attacked on two fronts--by an older Asian man and a plump blonde--both with murder on their mind. Dense Scott may be the last to realize who Ramona's evil ex is in this edition, but his bewilderment is especially ingratiating! Some of the more fun confrontations are the backdrop to moments of happiness and moments of jealousy--just like a true pairing. I enjoyed to hints of domesticity provided in this action packed volume.
