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.)

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.

Okay so I DO like Scott Pilgrim, but the only reason I bought this book is because I wanted to replace my roommate's copy. Why you ask? Because I ruined his copy on accident. How you ask? Because I knocked it into a trashcan full of blood and spit. How did I knock it in you ask? Because I was trying too hard to pet my cat when he walked in arm's reach (he didn't like pets so he ran). Why was the trashcan filled with blood you ask? Because I had just gotten my wisdom teeth out, and the plasma-saliva was flowing from my head like a fountain, so I was drooled it into a trashcan sitting next to me.

So the scene is me, reading Volume 4 of Scott Pilgrim, drunk on painkillers from the surgery, laying on the couch snuggled up to a sloshy trashcan brimming with spitblood when my cat walks by lookin' soft as heck. I reach out to graze my fingers against his silken sides. Suddenly, he recoils away from my embrace, because he hates love. My heart torn, I reach out further in a vain attempt at reconciliation, and tip Volume 4 of Scott Pilgrim into the trashcan, where it absorbs all of the plasma, saliva and other bodily fluids immediately. End scene as I try to buy another copy on Amazon but mistakenly purchase new blinds instead.

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.

I loved the movie and made it a point to eventually get all 6 books that they cull the movie from, often directly. Wonderful fun. I'm not sure I'd ever say one of the 6 is better or worse than the others. They're more like different volumes of one book.

Volume Four... I can't say anything about the actual story due to needing to read it after writing this review. The back cover is missing a chunk, but that can be fixed with some clear tape or something. Other than the missing cover piece, I think it's in pretty good shape.

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.
