Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. The first volume of this slacker-manga-action hybrid introduced Scott Pilgrim, a video game–playing regular guy whose love life leads him into irregular trouble. This second book opens with a peek into Scott's past: we see his early romantic troubles and the talentless band that sprang from them. In the present, Scott's new romance with mysterious messenger girl Ramona Flowers sends his former girlfriend, teenage Knives Chau, into a fury that culminates in an all-out kung fu battle between the two. In the surrealist twists that fill O'Malley's work, characters who are introduced in dreams end up playing major parts in the "real" life of the story, and you never know when the meandering lives of these Canadian 20-somethings are going to shift into high-action fight sequences. O'Malley gained acclaim and award nominations for the first Scott Pilgrim book, and he deserves the recognition. The story continued here is delightful, light, clever and surprising. O'Malley takes a manga influence—big eyes, informational inserts and explosions of energy—and throws in pop culture references—a band named the Clash at Demonhead, Ramona's skater turned movie star ex-boyfriend—to create a fresh, grungy style. The narrative jumps, combined with sharp, sardonic dialogue, make this a great oddball tale that captures the energy of a generation. (June)

Scott Pilgrim vol. 1's biggest problem was that it ended too soon...! Well, here's vol. 2 to help sate your mad little appetites! Now, finally, after all those agonizing months of waiting, we can all clutch a copy of Scott Pilgrim vol. 2 in our grubby little hands!

For all you new readers out there, Scott Pilgrim is a series about Scott, a twentysomething slacker-type, and his romantic foibles. Will he be able to defeat his dream girl's seven evil ex-boyfriends and keep his claim on her heart? And what about Scott's high-schooler girlfriend, and the mysterious "Gideon?" Joined by a cast of likable and unique characters, will Scott be able to deal with the burdens of life and lost love and do what's best for his "precious little life?"

Oh BOY, can I be cheesy. But anyway...

This volume starts off with some back story on Scott, and Kim's character is especially given a lot of attention. Learning about Kim's character is one of my favorite parts of the book, and it's great to see that the background characters have as much personality as the title character. Learning more about each of the characters is definitely what I look forward to in each new volume. While the story might be interesting alone in its basic premise (boy fights dream girl's seven evil ex-boyfriends so he can date her), it would totally be easy for it to turn into a major snoozefest if the characters were zilch-o void-type personalities. What a relief that they're not! Each character is so individual from the way they look, dress, and speak... it's an absolute joy!

Another thing that's very notable about this series is the dialog... It's just so fun to read! Fear not the word baloons, reader... you need not skip them over!

It is dork-tastic and kind of stupid, but if you're a gamer, or now gamers or, you know, watch tv and movies, you'll love this comic. This art is a little unrefined, but I think that was sort of the point, and the manga style is spot on for this book.

Format: Paperback
The first volume in the Scott Pilgrim series introduced us to one of the most bizarre faux-anime concepts (and casts) ever conceived. Scott Pilgrim is the ultimate slacker: he is 23 years old, is between jobs, plays in a bad band, and was, until recently, dating a high school girl. He left the 17-year-old Knives Chau for the more age-appropriate Ramona Flowers, an Amazon.ca delivery girl. However, Scott soon learned that in order to keep dating Ramona, he would have to fight and defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends. The fight against the first boyfriend was an over-the-top awesome fest of unrivaled proportions. So the question was, "Would the second volume, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World be as good?" Yes.

Scott and Ramona (who he refers to as "Rammy" sometimes) are still getting to know each other as Scott is forced to fight Lucas Lee, Ramona's second evil ex-boyfriend, who is also a pretty-boy movie star and ex-skater. But things get more complicated when Scott's ex-girlfriend Natalie "Envy" Adams threatens to come back into the picture. Best of all, Knives engages Ramona in a fight for Scott's heart that is even better than the fight against Matthew Patel in the first volume. There are plenty of other humorous moments, especially those involving Wallace, Scott's roommate, as well as a scene that plays like a cooking show.

If you are a fan of video games, anime parody, and sweet fights, you should definitely check out Scott Pilgrim. The humor is top-notch, and the story is great.

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 also recommend watching the movie if you haven't seen it :P

Format: Paperback
Yeah, this series is just as weird and awesome as it sounds. It is full of videogame references and music jokes. This would be a good place to start reading, even though it's volume 2. This is when the story gets to the point of warped oddness, that stands as the reason for its greatness - and also this volume begins with a prelude to the first volume. So now, you understand...I would say see the movie as well, because the books can still be enjoyed even after you've seen it. My point is that this is an awesome series and totally worth your time. Recommended soundtrack: I Want It All/Queen, Tom Sawyer/Rush, Walking After You/Foo Fighters, Accidents Will Happen/Elvis Costello, Extraordinary Girl/Green Day, Rock The Night/Europe, Walk/Foo Fighters, Suffagrete City/David Bowie, Simple Man/Lynyrd Skynyrd, All-star/Smash Mouth, Rock'n'Roll High School/The Ramones, Afterlife/Avenged Sevenfold, Girl U Want/Devo, and Love Will Tear Us Apart/Joy Division.

I had to see what's with these books after I seen the movie. The movie just exploded with originality and style. Then I found they were based on graphic novels of a Bill O Maley. After reading the first scott pilgrim one I was naturally curious and to see how they measured to the movie. After reading the first two book I automatically knew that this Bill O Maley hit it right on the button. If you into comics, then you love this. If you into magna style books.. you still love this. Its very rare for something like this to be popular as it is now. I wish I knew bout these in high school.. but better late than never. The story is funny, the script dialogue is really natural.. it makes you get interested in these fictional characters. Even the way its looks.. a simple design of characters but with slight anime/magna influenced. If you seen the movie it still worth to get these as they go into the world of story further than it does in the movie. If you never seen the movie I really recommend to get these books then watch the movie. Either way if you pick up this book there very good chance that you wont put it down til you done with it. As fellow comic writer and fan I highly recommend this for anyone even remotely interested in this crazy world of video games, rock indie music, 20' s somethings weird olds, and the old factor of love conquers all in a very new aspect point of view. PICK IT UP! p.s. the i played the game too.. triple hit this franchise has become!
