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!Read more ›
I gave this a three stars on goodreads. I loved it! It's the second in the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels. It was hilarious! I had a good time reading it. I read it in one sitting. It was great!
And as a bonus it isn't all-Scott-all-the-time. Knives actually has a lot more to do here than in Volume 1. Ramona gets a lot more ink. We really do start to get more of an ensemble, with Scott at the center, but not taking up all of the space. I applaud that.
This volume includes notes and concept drawings and the like, and while they are not as complete or interesting as in Volume 1, they are certainly a nice bonus.
So, if you were hesitant about whether the Scott Pilgrim story had anywhere left to go, the answer so far seems to be a resounding yes. Excellent.
Please note that I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review.
I got my son hooked on Scott Pilgrim before the movie came out. He's worn out his original set of books. When I saw the color versions available and that it was available as an e-book, I jumped on the chance. The art jumps off the page in the bigger format (thanks to the tablet's screen being larger than the original books), the colors are vibrant and well-done, and it feels like reading the series again for the first time.
The story itself is rich, complex, and for being such a fantastic subject, very realistic when it comes to its characterizations.
I can't wait until the rest of the volumes are available in color!
