I'm glad that I read this before I read Bryan O'Malley's other work. Scott Pilgrim is definitely the better story. This one isn't bad either though. As a stand alone it works alright. It reminded me of The Clarence Principal, just not nearly as depressing. The story is kind of weak at the beginning, and then it gets a smidge confusing in the middle. The end of the story really saves it though. While Scott Pilgrim has the better story, I would say that this book has a much better art style. I can see the similarity in the way the characters are draw, but in this book it is much easier to tell the characters apart. There is a quiet beauty to the book (even though there is a lot of text in it). If you are a fan of Bryan O'Malley's other work I would definitely give this a try. If you're just looking for a nice book that you can pick up and read in an hour this will fit the bill too. If you're looking for a comic that will change the way you see the world this one isn't rally it though.
