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!

Scott Pilgrim has a rough life. Lives in a cold area; has a rock band. He's also dating a high schooler. But when he meets Ramona his life changes forever. But before he and she can become a "thing" Scott has to do the inevitable. Defeat Ramona's seven evil exes. Who must he fight this time? Will he win? Will Ramona still want to be with him?
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!

There are a lot of Scottoholics out there, and the praise for the Scott Pilgrim books is lavish. That's fine, because it is well deserved. My question as I started this Volume 2 was whether Bryan O'Malley could keep the story and the characters rolling forward, or would just start circling around with nowhere new to go. Well, the answer is that, now that we've become comfortable with the basic cast of characters, O'Malley has the opportunity to develop some hitherto secondary characters, to expand on the main protagonists, to start up new sub-plots and storylines, to flesh out some characters' backgrounds, and to just generally continue to develop and expand the Pilgrim universe, (although it never leaves Canada, which is great by me).

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 purchased this as an e-book, so understand that everything I reference is from reading this on a 10" tablet.

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!

Being honest, I can't say that I like the color versions of Scott Pilgrim better than the original black and white. There was something a bit bleak and depressing about the black and white that suited this love story well. Combine that with the fact that it takes place in Canada, and you can call the original artwork appropriately barren. However, if you've already read the originals and then saw the movie, you'll have a new found appreciation for the new hardback color editions of O'Malley's work. It's like the original art was melded with the adapted film and they make for a very cool hybrid.
