Scott Pilgrim Volume 2

[Wow, my reviews were so much shorter back in 2007.]

Scott continues to try and live his life as normally as possible (good luck), as ex-boyfriend number two arrives and Scott's new girlfriend Ramona fights off the girl Scott left for her. Meanwhile, we learn a bit of Scott's fuzzy past (which seems to be rather like a video game), new friendships are formed, and the band's future gets weaved into Scott's rather complicated social life.

What happens when you're asked to open for your ex's new band? O'Malley continues to shine here, mixing humour, very real characters, and fight moves usually reserved for CGI that none of our otherwise normal kids seem to think twice about. Great stuff, can't wait to read more.
