Rated 4 out of 5 by from More of the same but still Funny Reason for Reading: Next in the series. I liked this book much better than the first one, but I've given them the same rating. I felt the same way throughout this book as I did when I finished the first one, if that makes sense. My problems with book one have mostly been taken care of now and I found this a pleasant, humorous diversion. I can understand the cult appeal this has had. I still don't think it is suitable for younger audiences and while this book is not as "adult" as the first book it still is about college students, not YAs and I was pleased to see that my library has it shelved in the adult section. So, anyway, lots of fun. I love the video game angle, it's cute. Scott is a jerk, but Ramona is cool. This volume does a lot of flashbacks to Scott's past so we learn a bit more about him, these transitions are shaky though and one doesn't often realize one is in the past right away. The battle scenes are good and I'm really starting to enjoy the characters' personalities, except for Scott, of course. I'll continue the series, but I'm wondering if Scott is going to develop as a person throughout the series or is it just going to be about him beating the evil boyfriends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scott Pilgrim 2: They Relive The Past When last we left off with our intrepid young couple, they were just starting off in a relationship. But first we detour to a guided tour of Scott’s past love life. So buckle your seatbelts, as we dwelve into Scott Pilgrim Volume 2 Versus The World and plummet headlong into his sordid grainy life. Keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times for this trip down memory lane, all curated by the amazing writer/artist Bryan Lee O’Malley. For those of you who came in late, Scott Pilgrim is our hero, a slacker in his early twenties who in the first volume meets the girl of his dreams, the mysteriously alluring Ramona Flowers. But the major stumbling block for their continued happiness is Ramona’s Seven Evil Ex’s, who are united to destroy Scott. And have fun while doing this. During these epic battles, the laws of physics and common sense vanish in a puff of logic. And barely anyone even notices these breaches. So now that these safety instructions are finally out of the way, on with the show. We immediately enter the wayback machine and see Scott’s time in high school, complete with a first day fight. At this point the human drama unfolds with Scott being blindly oblivious to Lisa, a girl interested in him, and showing interest in Kim, whom we were introduced to in the first Volume. Both girls join Scott’s band and everything seems peachy keen until our hero is plucked away by a move to Toronto. Kim and Lisa are left lovelorn. Or are they? One of the joys of pillaging all six volumes of Scott Pilgrim at once is all the plot and character details O’Malley manages to deftly shuffle into the story along the way. Paying attention to how Scott recollects these events, seemingly so innocuous at the time but oh so pivotal later in the narrative, becomes very important before the end. Scott is our gallant romantic hero. Scott is a caring gentleman at all times. Or is he? Events in this story slam into our future, but even those answers bring forth more questions. The underpinings exposed here have the task of vividly making all of us, somewhere down the road, question our own total recall. What seems like a simple backstory reveals all. Meanwhile back in the present day, we also plunge into another wildly crazy battle with yet another Evil Ex. Scott faces death, destruction and dismemberment at the hands of Lucas Lee, an “accomplished” actor with absolutely no respect for Casa Loma. Scott somehow survives (otherwise their would be no Volume 3) and finally sees the next Evil Ex at the very conclusion of this Volume. Also, Ramona’s day gets weirder and weirder when she enters a surreal fight of her own at the library. And it was not about overdue books. Both battles feature O’Malley letting his imagination stretch and bounce off of the universe. After both these bone rattling battles, the emotional body blows begin anew. Another fragment from the past, a dangerous and nasty character who trolls around Scott, makes her appearance. The pages and pages of Scott’s anguish over She-Who-Is-So-Clearly-Not-Worth-It draws you in and drags you through the muck. Scott just wants to know why he is not worth of Envy’s love. Wrong question Scott, wrong question. You should be asking why do you still care about this BL##P. You can fill in the blanks yourself. Right now, Scott is all set to enter Volume 3 and encounter the next Evil Ex. An Ex with a strange Six Degrees Of Separation connection to his world. An Ex that brings the surreal to the next level of surreal. And Scott’s life gets more complicated. As usual. And I fully believe Sonic & Knuckles were a way better band. Scoopriches

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He is Scott Pilgrim and he is awesome!, Scott Pilgrim Volume 2 has it all - dorky hats, gay roommates, skateboarding battles against evil ex-boyfriends, a slightly psychotic teenage girl called Knives out for chopsocky revenge and, if all that has left you tired and hungry, a recipe for vegan shepherds' pie. As you may have gathered, the second instalment of Bryan Lee O'Malley's series of graphic novels is quite unlike anything else on the market. The brilliance of the storytelling lies in the fact that O'Malley is able to deviate from the central storyline, playing with different genres and even breaking the 'fourth wall' to address the reader directly, whilst all the while keeping his eye fixed firmly on advancing the plot, so that these asides and deviances never slow down what is, in effect, a narrative told at breakneck speed. O'Malley's art is joyous and vibrant, but also capable of incredible subtlety, so that Scott and his friends - and, most especially his wronged ex-girlfriend Knives, come across as fully-formed characters whose stories carry real emotional weight. If you have not yet read Scott Pilgrim's adventures, I strongly advise you get in early so that you can follow the excitement of each new volume as it appears!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stellar Comedy/Action/Romance Graphic Novel The Scott Pilgrim series from Oni Press is difficult to describe. I'm often unable to describe the premise of the series which prevents others from trying it. It's funny, heart-warming, self-aware, and genuine. It's a coming-of-age story in which the protagonist must mature by dealing with his emotional baggage in addition to the baggage of his love interest, Ramona Flowers. The series is enriched with references to retro video games and pop culture references. It's easily the most creative graphic novel I've read and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good read that will evoke chuckles. If you like video games, you will like Scott Pilgrim. If you like comics, you will like Scott Pilgrim. If you like breathing, you will like Scott Pilgrim.
