I have fond memories of this graphic novel series, and often recommend it to others, but I had actually forgotten how the storyline progresses, which made it fun to revisit this. I plan to reread the whole series, since it’s impossible to restart it without finishing it.
I still love when it breaks the fourth wall and addresses the audience directly. That could be annoying or disruptive, but it is so well done that it really works in this series.

This made me laugh. A lot. I read it straight through and grabbed the 2nd one.
The side characters are fantastic, and I love how it just hits you suddenly with a dose of magical realism, right out of the blue. The video game nods really make me chuckle, and Scott Pilgrim is so neurotic and awkward that you can’t help but be amused.

Love these! I can’t put them down. I am very upset that I don’t have book 3 on hand. *grumbles*
I really love the randomness, the slacker-vibe, and the backstory. I know that’s not for everyone, but it works for me. I also love that the character description boxes pop up more in this one, and I’m still sitting here amused by Scott’s continuously disastrous love life.

Wow. I love this one. This series finds its groove more with each new book. I like how the ninja-ing amps up in this one. I enjoy Evil Ex 4 and the purse scene, as well as the dad of Knives.
Honestly, Ramona Flowers is my least favorite character, but she ends up being interesting by default, just through her conversations with Scott and because she brings on the Evil Exes.

I’m still endlessly amused by Scott Pilgrim. I skimmed other people’s reviews, and they thought this one was more depressing. I confess the more pathetic Scott is, the more I’m amused by him. I also didn’t mind retreading old themes. It kind of cemented the series before the big ending.

This one had so many great moments, including my favorite instance of breaking the 4th wall. Plus, there’s a few twists that really got me in all the feels. The memory cam panels are everything.
Some of these side characters barely goy more than 2 or 3 dialogue bubbles per novel, and yet I’ve come to adore and/or hate them, sometimes both, depending on the moment. It pulls together so many different moments from across the series into an epic finale.
I adore this. I think I like it better every time I revisit it.
