Ramona, oh Ramona..

not sure why I didn't get this on my first read but...

Vol. 4 okay, is a retread of all the moves of the series so far, the ex battle, the game elements, the girl from Scott's past, Scott being clueless & dumb. Amplified, played for laughs sure, but the moves are old, tired and you've seen 'em before. There's a cursory feint towards Scott growing up, getting his shit together which gives it an illusion of change, but really, Vol. 4 is the same ol' Scott Pilgrim, the one you know and love. And

So this is a review for the entire series.
it was amazzzzing by the way.

The characters were so unique and interacted with each other soooo well and it was just awesome!!!
Scott- Funny as hell.
Ramona- Cool as hell.
Knives- Obsessed as hell.
Stephen Stills- Laid back as hell.
Kim- Awesome as hell.
Stacey- Normal as hell.
Wallace- Amazing as hell.
Young Neil- Cute as hell.
Gideon- Annoying as hell.
Natalie(aka Envy)- Retarded as hell.
Lisa- Random as hell.
Julie- Mean as hell.
Mathew Petal- Amusing as hell.

Another hilarious book from Brian Lee O'Malley! I love the world he creates for the characters. I also love that he leaves no stone unturned. He'll bring back some things from the first couple of books, and it fits so well with the storyline. It's sheer perfection. I love how even though a little faith goes a long way in Scott's fights, he is still so insecure about his relationship with Ramona. There are a lot of really funny scenes. Most of them incorporate what's being drawn around characters ...more

These books man. Sometimes it's like reading about my friends. Here we are, 24 or so, dead broke, trying to make a go of it, hurting each other every time we turn around. My favourite part in this book is when Kim gets on a train:
Scott: Sorry about... everything.
Kim:Not your fault.
Scott: *thinks really hard for a couple of panels* I'm sorry about me.
Kim: Apology accepted.

The moments of realizations, the coming to terms with ourselves as bad people, and then taking those steps and saying the hard

Scott Pilgrim continues to capture my roughly defined subculture (at least as we [in my case, a post college graduate still living in his college town and working part time jobs, occasionally playing old NES and SNES games, and somewhat often attending local shows:] stood or stand in our early to mid twenties. I'd like to think I've already somewhat moved out of the scene which Scott Pilgrim seeks to describe) better than any other work of art in any medium. In this particular volume, Scott cont ...more

By far this is one of the best!!

The pictures were fab and I freaking LOVE all the pannels with the cat in it!!

- A Review from a mother of a 13 year old boy -

* Not really a ton of crude language in this one. I was shocked that the word Asshat was used. I mean... This was written by a dude... I actaully had to explain to my hubz what an asshat was, a couple of months ago. He then told me that dudes don't say that word. Maybe he just didn't get the memo.

* There are 3 pannels of shadow nookie but th

I think what annoys me about the sort of music fandom depicted by the Scott Pilgrim characters is not simply that they value music solely because of their emotional reactions to it, but they act as if this somehow makes them special, as if their emotional connection to the music were somehow more valid than the average jugglette's.

Then there's the obsession with the rarity of music: collecting unknown bands and staking claim, which is a symptom of the fact that most trendy people don't recognize

I don't even like graphic novels, but these are amazing. They make me happy for some reason.

Pretty sure this is the Empire Strikes Back of the series. I really loved it.

I love Scott Pilgrim and I finished this book in a day!!!!!!!!

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

This was the worst book in the series for me. It's Scott's 24th birthday and he has matured a bit like I wanted him to over the course of these books. At least he's no longer using girls and being a major jerk, though he is still a jerk. Ramona's behaviour is suddenly all out of character and she appears to just disappear. o..kay?... Anyone doing the math is not surprised to know that this book's boyfriend will have to be twins, otherwise how do we get 7 ev

This volume is similar to Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness, in that it breaks the formula to slow things down a bit and get all introspective. It’s exactly what the series needed at this point, but just as with the third volume, I found myself scrabbling for purchase a bit before hopping on board.

The ongoing war against the evil exes is almost an afterthought, this time around. That battle goes on in the background and is resolved quietly and without much fanfare. Meanwhile, the bulk of th

Posted on my book blog.

Knowing this was the second to last volume of the Scott Pilgrim series, I was expecting this to be the book in which everything sort of goes wrong in preparation to the redemption at the end of the series. Well, I was right. This one is much grimmer than the others, and consequently isn't as fun to read.

It feels like every character has gone downhill for this one. With the exception of Scott, who despite all his failings, actually manages to mature somewhat, and Kim, who s

As has been said before by other reviewers: this volume of the Scott Pilgrim adventures is Scott Pilgrim gone dark, darker than dark, opaque, black, bleak, desolate. Few things capture that better than Scott's final dream, in which he crawls over desert to complain to a cactus about his lonliness...only to end up spooning his friend Stephen Stills.

Unlike others, I still saw humor here, not as much as in other volumes, but good hearty amusement. The artistry of sliding doors, the jaded confusion

First of all, why does it take O'Malley A YEAR to write a book that it takes me TWENTY MINUTES to read?! Cripes, it went so fast that I barely even noticed it, despite like a year of anticipation.

This installment of Scott Pilgrim reads like this series' "Empire Strikes Back." It's the one that's really plot heavy where everything goes to shit to hopefully build up to a giant, spectacular climax with lots of Ewoks. (Okay, I don't know if there will actually be Ewoks in SP6, but it would be awesom

I read this this morning in one sitting. Volume 5 of Scott Pilgrim finds Scott getting "old" (24), and reaching awkwardly adult moments with his bandmates, his girlfriend, and her league of evil ex-boyfriends that he has to fight to win her heart. In short, it's just another Scott Pilgrim book :o)

The further I get into this series, the more I realize that Kim Pine is my favourite character in the series. She's snarky when she needs to be, emotionally mature when others require it of her, and hop

Me encantó este volumen, se ha convertido en mi favorito de la historia y definitivamente prepara el terreno para el 6to y último volumen de la historia. *Se va por el subterráneo mágico*
Nicolo Yu
The penultimate volume of Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim ends on a sad note. Scott will undoubtedly sink to his nadir in the next volume. He's all alone now, his oldest friend, Kim has just left him, and so does Ramona, crawling back to Gideon it seems. But it will be Kim whose loss will hit him the hardest. His greatest fear is realized.

If this book had a face, I would punch it's face in the face.

Si Ramona decide dejar a Scott y quedarse con Kim Pine en el sexto volumen, no estaría decepcionado en lo absoluto.
Como todo penúltimo volumen, este es el que termina con un cliffhanger y todo se va a la mierda (En serio, no es spoiler. Pasa en todo penultimo o antepenultimo capitulo de una serie).
De todas las peleas que han habido, diría que este es el volumen con las peores peleas. Scott pelea en segundo plano mientras Kim y Ramona dicen cosas mucho más interesantes que cualquier pelea que pue

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT HAHHHHHHH

Ramona has twin ex boyfriends? Get out really. What other chauvanistic sexual fetishes can you put on this poor girl?

So now the parasite known as Scott Pilgrim has Ramona for a host. His band is splitting up and he just can't catch a break. Aw.

His stalker high school ex girlfriend fights Ramona in a girls bathroom. Are you sure O'Malley isn't 17 years old?

And the end reveals that Ramona has left Scott (YAY) to go back to her ex, Gideon, to set up the final book.

“You stole him with your advanced American slut technology! You're not nice!”

Oh Ramona..
I had waited for this book for a long time, And finally I have finished it.~
The continuing comedy softly diminishes in this volume, as Scott continues to reap the consequences of his cluelessness and carelessness, resulting in the darkening of the series that seems completely natural and interesting to me. The slow cracks between Scott and Ramona's relationship finally kicks in if I have to say. The dark ton

Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe seems to be the book before the book. The set-up to the finale. The Twins were not quite as interesting of characters to me, which is sorta reflective to their film versions -- although, in the film, they were musical monsters (or just has a really, really expansive volume switch to their hi-tech boombox), which isn't the case in the book (or at least, gotten across to me).

This installment still has flashes of humor, but for the most part, it has a somewhat somber

For some reason I didn't enjoy this one as much, maybe because it seemed like less was actually going on. Though, it will definitely be interesting to see how this all works out in the final volume. I'll probably do more of an overall review for the series on volume six once I've completed it.

So this book kind of sucks for Scott. It’s where Brian Lee O’Malley proves he’s an asshole. I think he’s trying to make Scott kill himself.

It’s a waste of time, of course, as Scott isn’t self-aware enough to kill himself.

Take that, Brian Lee O’Malley. You fuckstick.
