    You know that thing, where you find this great webcomic and spend half an hour clicking through it backwards, seeing whether it only had a few good strips, or whether its actually solid throughout, and then you figure what the hell, I m not doing anything tonight and so you click the archive button, and go back to the first comic, and it s from 2002, and it s just bad flat art, dumb jokes, no sense of pacing That s the experience of reading Scott Pilgrim.The jokes lack subtlety and insight You know that thing, where you find this great webcomic and spend half an hour clicking through it backwards, seeing whether it only had a few good strips, or whether its actually solid throughout, and then you figure what the hell, I m not doing anything tonight and so you click the archive button, and go back to the first comic, and it s from 2002, and it s just bad flat art, dumb jokes, no sense of pacing That s the experience of reading Scott Pilgrim.The jokes lack subtlety and insight, the characters are consistently annoying, the art s rudimentary, everyone looks the same except for their hair, which the author constantly changes, anyways I ve heard some people blame manga anime inspiration for the similarity of O Malley s characters, but there are plenty of manga artists who have mastered the art of caricature, and use it to great effect Also like a web comic archive, it gradually gets better but not quickly enough.It s reminiscent of Nick and Nora s Infinite Playlist, a movie I tired of about halfway through Both of them are trying to be cutesy, quirky, ironic, and referential, but it s all very familiar stuff I never felt there was a quick, complex mind at the helm and with modern, referential humor, it s all about the delivery and the originality.Then again, by this point, quirky internet humor has entered the mainstream and lost much of its punch, like Jerry Seinfeld talking about airline food now everyone s doing it It s like your friend who thinks sayingremember that episode of Family Guy is the same as telling a good joke Both Nick and Nora s and Scott Pilgrim were by the book quirky None of it is going to strike you as interesting or witty if you re the least bit familiar with internet subcultures and humor already.Both also had somewhat unsettling homophobic overtones, playing off all the gay characters and same sex romance for jokes and cute lesbians for titillation It s nice to haveopenly gay characters in YA media, but not as thin, walking punchlines It was worse in Infinite Playlist , but there was still a persistent undercurrent of homosocial discomfort.The book was also very reminiscent of the splendid anime FLCL, from the mysterious, begoggled, badass delivery girl arriving to complicate the sex life of our oblivious jerk protagonist to the naive, sweet waif caught up in it all the seemingly normal world invaded by magic, twisting our expectations of reality Yet unlike FLCL, this was not a rollicking, take no prisoners, psychedelic reimagining of the genre, it was just a dull story about annoying people occasionally perked up by in joke fight scenes The musical obsession was another shared thread, right down to the same characteristic Rickenbacker.It s very soap opera who is dating who, who used to date who, which would beintriguing if I were interested in the characters Instead, they re the sort of dull, naive, self absorbed people that I spent high school and college avoiding, right down to the fratboy favorite lipstick lesbian poster on the wall and an undying reverence for whatever bands Pitchfork told you to listen to this week 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 a particular song were somehowvalid 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 the difference between a cause and its effect It s true that a knowledgeable musicologist or musical historian will be familiar with a number of undiscovered bands, but deliberately seeking out unknowns will not make youmusically sophisticated most unknown bands are unknown for good reason.Scott himself is a mess, and yet without being either sympathetic or complex He s definitely got that Holden Caulfieldwoe is me, it s not my fault I m an assholevibe As it goes on, it resembles a harem animeand , where all women fight over Scott all the time, despite the fact that he s a self absorbed loser.Now, some authors, like Nabokov or Anna Kavan, have succeeded in presenting these awful, unpleasant characters in a way that reveals their natures, the psychology which drives them to be so self centered and thoughtless helping us to understand these characters, and even sympathize with them, while still disliking them It s difficult to do, but certainly possible Unfortunately, there s very little introspection in Scott Pigrim, the story touches superficially on a lot of parts of childhood, especially trends, but almost never turns a critical eye on them Everything is taken for granted, not only by the characters, but seemingly by the author Other characters do sometimes get angry at Scott, or criticize his behavior, but this isn t the same as a commentary on the sort of person he is we don t see him change, or sufferthan temporary drawbacks.There s something funny about a story centered on character interaction that eschews psychological progressions or conflict resolution in favor of videogame powerups and ninja battles But then, how many self absorbed videogame loving assholes wish that sex and relationships were acquired and maintained by minigames and xp grinding Each issue is incrementally better than the last the story becomesstreamlined, and O Malley takesartistic chances, usually to the general benefit of the comic, eventually hiring on other artists who really improve the style though in all the reviews, no one ever mentions Kantz and Ancheta 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 to improve his book and he gets all the credit.Between the ever growing cast of indistinguishable characters and the author s love of flashbacks, the storytelling leaves a lot to be desired, particularly in terms of clarity We certainly didn t need over a thousand pages of to get here, there were maybe three volumes worth of story with some stronger structure and development to drive toward the conclusion, it could have been solid If I d read a thousand pages of Hellboy or Blueberry, I could have tackled ten or fifteen complete story arcs spanning decades and continents.Sure, we get a lot of foreshadowing, but that isn t the same as actually exploring how events came about or what they meant It s just characters constantly referencing their background, then getting interrupted before they can explain it It s such a patently artificial way to maintain tension.All in all, Scott Pilgrim feels very much like a mid level webcomic It centers on the author s life and experiences, harping on in jokes and hobbies, but lacks the character, narrative structure, wit, or art that sets good webcomics apart It does improve, by the last volume, into somethingenjoyable to read, but it s not enough to make up for all the time spent getting to that point My Suggested Reading In Comics

    Rather than rate each book individually, it madesense to review them as a contingent.I got into the Scott Pilgrim series backwards I follow a few webcomic artists Twitterfeeds, and there was mention of buying Scott Pilgrim books from Brian Lee O Malley Naturally, I checked out Scott Pilgrim, and found out about the film After seeing the film and being left in awe, the next natural progression was to read the books.Scott Pilgrim, the story of the eponymous character s battle against his Rather than rate each book individually, it madesense to review them as a contingent.I got into the Scott Pilgrim series backwards I follow a few webcomic artists Twitterfeeds, and there was mention of buying Scott Pilgrim books from Brian Lee O Malley Naturally, I checked out Scott Pilgrim, and found out about the film After seeing the film and being left in awe, the next natural progression was to read the books.Scott Pilgrim, the story of the eponymous character s battle against his new girlfriend s seven evil exes, himself, and pretty much everyone, is a surprisingly deep narrative There are things in this which the film really glossed over, and those things are what makes me think What Bryan Lee O Malley accomplishes within one or two volumes is a lotthan J.K Rowling ever accomplished in six books.The characters are believable, to a point, though once you insert yourself into this alternate universe they begin to flesh out and make a lotsense There are, it must be said, very few superfluous characters, as they all end up playing a part somewhere along the way, whether it s Other Scott affirming Wallace s homosexuality, or Comeau for his role as one of the few totally level headed people in the entire story.The art style, while not truly detailed per se, is quite fetching in the way it holds the story together under one manga style The art even seems to change as we venture from real life, to SP, to subspace, to dreams Or maybe that s my perception of what s actually going down in the world of Scott Pilgrim.While most people recommend that the comics are read before viewing the film, I d advise the total opposite Go see the film, as it will make you question things If you like the film, read the books as they will answer your questions and provide yetfodder for your enjoyment However, I would highly recommend reading up to the end of Volume 2 before viewing said film, just for the one line which really doesn t go over right, and makes Scott look like a total ass The explanation is in Volume 2, with further explanation which to be frank, is better left until after the film in Volume 6

    This is one of the most influential comic books I have ever read The pace and most importantly, the tone, defines a generation that just doesn t want to grow up And that is a good thing And a bad thing And life itself, really.Brian Lee O Malley just gives us a mashup of sassy, funny, wholesome, absurd moments of the life of Scott Pilgrim and friends, and gets to encapsulate what those 20 30s were all about It is a relatable and at the same time fantastical portrayal of what we go through in This is one of the most influential comic books I have ever read The pace and most importantly, the tone, defines a generation that just doesn t want to grow up And that is a good thing And a bad thing And life itself, really.Brian Lee O Malley just gives us a mashup of sassy, funny, wholesome, absurd moments of the life of Scott Pilgrim and friends, and gets to encapsulate what those 20 30s were all about It is a relatable and at the same time fantastical portrayal of what we go through in life, and this journey is wrapped up in extremely idiotic situations, were quintessential characters just are themselves, unapologetic, funny, witty, absurd and at the same time, extremely real and surprisingly profound.Another aspect I want to talk about is the importance of self reflection the author knows the story he is trying to convey, and he knows he is telling us in the most bizarre, cool, funny way he has concocted up He knows it is an utter absurdity bording on insanity It somehow works It works on every single god darn level You will laugh, you will be and feel nostalgic, you will feel the love for music, art, games, pop culture that permeate every kid and teen s life, and how those tastes mold them as the adults they become, because in a way those choices we made so long ago when we knew nothing and were just admiring and dissenting what was good of what was bad, or what we liked and what we don t, remain with us and are at the very core of who we are.So yeah, there are flying robots, witty remarks, casual relationships and true love, and there is also the importance of self awareness and owning up to the worst part of ourselves, understanding that the worst is also us, and that we must own it in order to move on, and learn from the mistakes and fight not only for what is right, but for what we love.All of that is Scott Pilgrim, or at the very least, it did all of that for me It is a hell of a ride that I try to re read every couple of years.Hold on people, and don t let go

    I don t get it A lot of folks talk about how lovable these books are and OHOHOHOHOH AMAZING GRAPHIC NOVELS YES, but I don t see it It s boring, predictable, filled with un relatable characters, and just sort of trite I wasn t nerdy enough to think it was amazing every time he used OOOOOO VIDEO GAME FONT and said LEVEL UP.I m too not an emotional moron, for lack of a better term, to find any of the characters with the exception of some minors relatable or likable in any way If the grand I don t get it A lot of folks talk about how lovable these books are and OHOHOHOHOH AMAZING GRAPHIC NOVELS YES, but I don t see it It s boring, predictable, filled with un relatable characters, and just sort of trite I wasn t nerdy enough to think it was amazing every time he used OOOOOO VIDEO GAME FONT and said LEVEL UP.I m too not an emotional moron, for lack of a better term, to find any of the characters with the exception of some minors relatable or likable in any way If the grand reveal and entire point of six volumes is to get to OH MY GOD I DID BAD THINGS IN THE PAST BUT NOW I CAN ACCEPT THEM AND MOVE ON IN THIS FANTASTIC NEW RELATIONSHIP, you re not very difficult to surprise Overall, they re just sort of okay to me You re not missing much by not reading them You re not gaining much by reading them.All that being said, why am I giving them three stars I feel like I m talking myself down to two BUT two seems too low, even if three seems too high I enjoyed the style, and there were fun parts mostly in books 1 3, after which it s a downhill journey , so it s not all bad I hope that O Malley s other work is better
