Reviews - What do customers think about Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 2: Scott Pilgrim Versus The World?
Continues the series's plummet into pointlessness May 30, 2008
I enjoyed the first 150 pages of the first Scott Pilgrim book, which is why I was disappointed to see almost everything cool about it deconstructed in the last dozen pages. When I picked up volume two, it was hoping O'Malley would quickly dump the pointless regurgitation of videogame cliches and get the story back on track. I was sorely disappointed.
Scott Pilgrim can't decide if it wants to be a quirky romantic comedy or a wire-fu action romp, as a result it does neither well. Despite a strict avoidance of realism O'Malley fails to deliver a compelling fight sequence. What's worse is that while O'Malley shows actual skill in creating interesting and likable characters, his insistence on using fight sequences to resolve interpersonal conflict squanders his characters' potential.
Scott Pilgrim might have been an quirky and engaging rom-com, but it has become a messy cliche driven melodrama. Now the only value of these books serve, is as instruction for how an author can allow pandering to destroy his own work.
An Impromanga artist makes it big! Apr 14, 2008
There's a select few people who were around for the golden age of Impromanga... but from it a lot of artists exploded onto the scene. One who's talent was always apparent but never appreciated was Mal... who is finally hitting the big time with Scott Pilgrim.
Sure there's the upcoming Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) movie adaptation in the works, but this is one of those books that doesn't need the movie deal to carry it. Fresh, innovative, addictive like pizza to a fat kid... Scott Pilgrim is on his way to conquering the world. You might want to take the time to nab the entire run, and Mal's first manga Lost at Sea, if only to rub your friends faces in their lack of coolness for not getting them first.
Scott Pilgrim Is Awesome Dec 25, 2007
It is dork-tastic and kind of stupid, but if you're a gamer, or now gamers or, you know, watch tv and movies, you'll love this comic. This art is a little unrefined, but I think that was sort of the point, and the manga style is spot on for this book.
Best Comic Book Ever! Oct 27, 2007
Yep. I get every comic out these days but this was the best comic I think I have ever read. I can't wait for more.

Girlfriends are evil.
Even more so if they are exes in rock bands, or other oddities. Current girlfriends that have ex-boyfriends that want to fight you are also a bit annoying.
So are teenage girls that like to go ninja on your current squeeze.
Having something to sit on at your place is also useful.
