It's finally here! Six years and almost 1000 pages have all led to this epic finale! With six of Ramona's seven evil exes dispatched, it should be time for Scott Pilgrim to face Gideon Graves, the biggest and baddest of her former beaus. But didn't Ramona take off at the end of Book 5? Shouldn't that let Scott off the hook? Maybe it should, maybe it shouldn't, but one thin ...more

10 Life Changing Lessons To Learn from Scott Pilgirm Series.

1. I'm pretty sure Ramona Flowers is related to Nymphadora Tonks.
2. Inventors needs to invent Subspace Highways. SOON.
3. Never ever date a chick with 7 evil ex-boyfriends.
4. But if she's so damn hot, just prepare your katana.
3. Lightsabers are out. Power of Love and Power of Understanding are in.
6. Sparkling bodies are lame. Glowing heads are epic.
7. Life isn't a matter of milestones, nor of moments but of XP's!!!
8. If your life had a f

1.5 stars. In the previous volumes of Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim epic, there had been a buildup to a metaphysical / existential conclusion. Characters were floating in and out of a reality that was peppered with video game physics and razor-sharp wit, and it seemed natural that the final volume would be a collision of parallel worlds.

The finale, however, seems to play into a chaos-driven philosophy in explaining its logic. What seems to be intended as a post-modern foray into love, redem

There’s this illustration in this book where Ramona and Scott leap hand in hand into subspace. It’s probably the coolest image in the series. If I were to make it into an emoticon, it’d look like this:


Is that not the most epic emoticon you’ve ever seen?

I’m glad the series ended on a high note. This was probably the funniest book since the first, most notably when Scott, after having been abandoned by Ramona, starts asking all of the girls he knows for casual sex. It’s ridiculous and hilari

3.5ish out of 5

THIS is probably my least favourite of the six volumes which is a bit of a shame but I still enjoyed it so all good. I think I would have liked this a lot more had I not seen the movie before reading these because I spent the whole time comparing the final volume to the movie. Scott really annoyed me in this volume- normally I find him really cute and quirky but this time he was just annoying and selfish.

I liked getting more backstory for Ramona and Envy and stuff but it was stil

Hey, that was pretty good; much better than the rest, in any case. The new artists definitely helped. It's funny, but in all the reviews, no one ever mentions that Pilgrim hired Kantz and Ancheta, but then again, it's not like they get billing on the cover, which is a pretty disingenuous move by O'Malley: he brings in some talented artists and he gets all the credit.

I'm surprised that more people didn't recognize the change right away, there was a bigger art shift from vol 5 to 6 than from vol 1

Freaking best ending ever!! Hahahahaha love it love it love it so much. Especially when you've lost all hope for all your fave characters, Bryan Lee O'Malley just slaps you in the face with all that action love and omfg kick-ass kicking!

Wallace and Stephen are so adorable. And Knives, and Scott and Ramona and every one of em. Scott Pilgrim is one of the best comic franchise out there and if you haven't read even one of the 6 books dude you're lost.

It's a great escape from the real world! And don

So Scott saves the day and get's back his girl. Ho hum.

I just do not get the attraction to this series at all. Am I missing something? Did I not "get it"?

By the end of the series Scott is still the same annoying sponge that he started off as, but now he is in love. If the overall arc had him starting in the same position, finding love and fixing up his life a little more it would have been more readable. He did not mature at all throughout the series.

Even though I did not have to pay for these,
As if five stars wasn't as predictable as the sunrise.

I started this book off as a mess. Scott Pilgrim's world was upside down, horrible, and...I was a mess. It seemed everyone had left Scott behind. There was no more point to the story.

Except it was every point of the story. Scott had to fight for his life, not just against Gideon, the head Evil Ex who formed the League of the Seven Deadly Exes, he had to fight for his friends, for his passion, for Ramona.

In the movie, there is a moment wher

My Scott Pilgrim reread ends with the sixth volume. O'Malley concludes his epic the way one completes a video game: a final boss battle. That, and life lessons that Pilgrim has to learn before his ultimate encounter with Gideon, Ramona's final evil ex.

The entire Scott Pilgrim series has been a great ride. I still remember when I read it first a few years ago, it was a rollicking read, just it is now. It also helped restore my real image of the Scott Pilgrim, which lately has been influenced by t

The final book in the Scott pilgrim series and it was AMAZING! The final fight was EPIC! Bryan lee o'malley does it again and delivers and an epic volume. The artwork was BRILLIANT , the characters were FANTASTIC and full of HUMOR. But I felt that the plot was kind of rushed and I wish the Bryan would've taken a bit more time to explain what was happening. But overall I LOVED this volume so much and I thought it was AMAZING! I'm literally going to miss this series so much and it will have always ...more

Posted on my book blog.

The sixth and final installment of the Scott Pilgrim story feels quite a bit different from the rest of the volumes, in terms of the artwork, pacing, dialogues, and just the overall ambiance. It's not that it's bad - it just feels rather strange and a bit rushed.

Still, it's a great ending for a great series. It's a rather bittersweet coming of age for the all these 20-somethings, and a very honest, believable one at that. We get closure on most of the characters and relati

Four stars? Really? Maybe sometime later I'll settle Mr. Pilgrim's grand finale back down to a respectable three, but let me take a moment to defend the high praise: yes the Scott Pilgrim series is cute, hip, trendy, and full of the video game and bubblegum humor that my generation loves and may not weather well after a few decades. But there are things going on in these little books that cut deeper and glow brighter than all the the Double Dragon Meets Garden State glitter -- secret undercurren ...more

This is a tale of two readings:

The first time I read through Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour I went: "uhhh...really?" Underwhelmed, was an under statement. After building up potential conclusions for a year in my own mind, after imagining and re-imagining the deeper meanings O'Malley explored in this post-pop-modern-culture saga of romance and generational angst, I felt let down.

Then I realized: "oh...I was expecting WAY too much from a fun comic book series". And so in my second, third and four

Maybe it's me. I should LOVE Scott Pilgrim. It's tailored to my demographic. I get all the references. It should be like my favorite Saturday morning cartoon grew up right alongside me and we can keep being awesome together forever.

That's what should happen, but O'Malley just can't stop crossing that line between 'clever' and 'precious', and there are just too many musicians for my taste.

So I guess Scott Pilgrim is like your favorite Saturday morning cartoon who you lost touch with, and then yo

Before my my 34th birthday last week I joked with my BF that all I wanted was a box of Lotte Choco-Pies and a couple of comic books. But actually that really was all I wanted, and Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour was on the list.

The final installment in the series (on which the major motion picture is based) is predictably fun and irreverent, predictably packed with satisfying references to manga and videogames and the delightful ennui of generation whatever. What I did not predict was how profoundl

I had a lot of fun with this series and didn't really give reasons on why I liked one more than the other as I was going along, I wanted to review this as a full story. As a full story I give it a 4 and a half! It was fast-paced and full of references that any gamer nerd would get. I found that I really wanted to hit Scott a lot, it was a coming of age story for a guy who is too old to be coming of age. And that immaturity makes me annoyed, but his friends fuss at him enough that it makes up for ...more

In a time when so many people misunderstand how to end things (I'm looking at you, Lost production team), it's nice to see that someone gets it. It isn't just a good ending, it's perfect. As always, the highlights to me are the awareness that O'Malley has of his genre, and the willingness to subvert the reality he works so hard to establish. For each decade there is a fictional character that absolutely embodies the spirit of that time, and Scott IS the first decade of the 2000's, even to the ve ...more

I have completed the Scott Pilgrim series! Overall, I LOVED the series and it was a great introduction into graphic novels. Very witty and unique. I like how the books were "self-aware" (constantly referencing the fact that they were in a book) and that it just matter of factly mentioned completely ridiculous concepts (such as the mind subspace highways [I forget what it's actually called] or pulling swords of out their chests based on character development). Don't read these books expecting som ...more

Let me preface this by saying that I might be bias because I actually saw the movie before I read the books. I was instantly in love, maybe even a bit obssessed with the movie so I decided to read the graphic novels. I really enjoyed the first two. But then the movie plot significantly deviated from the original storyline and I had a hard time coming to terms with that and not comparing the two. I think if I had read the graphic novels first there never would have been a problem. I would have ke ...more

I've thoroughly enjoyed the series, I'm sad to say that the highly anticipated final book was a bit of a let down. I felt like it was the least focused story, try far too hard to be existential while maintaining the pop-culture bath of the previous five. It was still enjoyable, and I ripped through it, but the whole while I simply felt that it was trying too hard to be original and smart and at some points that just came off like the awkward kid that's trying to stand out.
