4.5 5I saw the movie adaptation a couple of years ago and, ever since then, I ve wanted to start the graphic novels I m so happy that I finally did, because this definitely didn t disappoint I liked it even than the movie because the art is used in such a clever way, so different than any other graphic novel I ve read before I ve only read Maus and Fun Home, but those were for school The humor was great as well and I already ordered the next volume so I can read it soon
Game on This is the first book in a series of six of Scott Pilgrim saga.Creative Team Creator, writer and illustrator Bryan Lee O Malley AM I DREAMING Um am I dreaming I ll leave you alone forever now.Thanks.My first contact with Scott Pilgrim s world was through the movie adaptation, that I wouldn t watch at least not so soon as I did if Mary Elizabeth Winstead which I love wouldn t be in the cast And I would lost a lot Since that movie rules So bizarre, clever, exciting and funny Am I dreaming [...]
DNF at page 54 This was exactly what I was feeling while reading Scott Pilgrim s Precious Little Life I actually tried watching the movie a while back, but it made me really, really uncomfortable And the same happened while reading the graphic novel I wanted to read it because I really liked Seconds, but I guess I somehow forgot that the movie was based off of a graphic novel And I hadn t made the connection between the two until I started reading and feeling really and I mean really uneasy I wa [...]
I FREAKING LOVED THIS.The art was used SO cleverly which my graphic design mind loved and is probably one of the reasons I liked it so much.I ve seen the movie so I had a little to go off of when reading this, but I was surprised to find I loved it maybe than the movie It s so quirky and wonderful and just so much good stuff wrapped into one thing SO GOOD.
What a weird comic I couldn t stop reading Scott is quirky and endearing The humour is great I heard bad things about the movie, but the book is perfectly enjoyable Art could have been better.
I debated what to rate this graphic novel On the one hand, the characters are thoroughly unlikable Scott Pilgrim is a vapid, useless lump of a man who is dating a high schooler because that s the level of his maturity emotional intelligence Ramona Flowers is standoffish and rude because it makes her look cool The only redeeming character was Wallace, the gay roommate On the other hand, once introductions got over, during the last scene of the book the concert and Scott s fight with the first evi [...]
Scott Pilgrim is so how I see the world I m sure it s because of the years of doing almost nothing but playing Mario Bros in my childhood, but the levels and energy bars and coins, etc as applied to mundane life things are so perfect to me Also, the characters Oh, the characters Scott Pilgrim is such a rad character because he is so douchey, but still somewhat sympathetic, and everyone spends the whole story pointing out his doucheyness I just really love a story that calls a douche a douche.Thi [...]
Scott Pilgrim is dating a high schooler so begins one of the finest comics sagas of all time I ve read Bryan Lee O Malley s Scott Pilgrim before, seen the extremely faithful Edgar Wright movie adaptation, and have just re read it this time in colour , and the comic still blows me away with its quality Reading the same story the third time around and it s not boring in the least It even somehow feels fresh despite having been published in 2004 On paper the story seems like no great shakes 23 year [...]
This wasn t so bad, but that cover sucks.I m not that fond of reading contemporary novels, and it s no different with graphic novels This had a simple plot, and nothing made it amazing for me The artwork was decent, but I ve seen way better People have been recommending this everywhere, so I decided to finally give it a try It s honestly not that bad, it would appeal to the contemporary readers I m still interested to continue on with the series though There s this mysterious thing about a cert [...]
Am I too old to like Scott Pilgrim I just don t care for a main character who is in his twenties, has no job, sleeps the zzzzzzzz kind with his roomate, dates a high school girl and cheats on her with a kinda cool delivery girl.How is this guy attractive to women at all Back in my dayThis graphic novel made me feel old.Scott Pilgrim is a bit of a dick and it is hard to cheer for him when he is fighting his girlfriends ex boyfriends I think the only way the author manages to make us on his side i [...]
Buying all of them, what can I say
After the slow trudge through Shelley s The Last Man , I decided to switch to some lighter fare It s about time I got back to my comic book to read pile, anyways So I pulled out Scott Pilgrim.I ve heard a lot about the book in comic book circles, and it s been overwhelmingly positive Despite this, I ve been somewhat wary of the trendy hipster label it s been saddled with, but that gets thrown around too much, and I figured beyond the trendy elements, I d get snatched up by something deeper in th [...]
4.5 Estrellas.Divertida y extra amente graciosa Una perfecta novela gr fica con personajes bien definidos que sabe darle su debida importancia a cada uno de los mismos.Debo aceptar que me mostraba un tanto esc ptico sobre leer ahora, o seguir posponiendo la historia, pero me alegro de haberla escudri ado al fin No me arrepiento para nada.Espero que los siguientes tomos me mantengan as de entretenido.
Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestThe movie adaptation of this comic book series came out during my second year of college I went to go see it with friends and we were totally blown away because everything was so scene that it literally hurt, and also all the video game and anime callbacks, plus the fact that it was kind of like a Jackie Chan movie as done by Judd Apatow My twenty year old brain was blown away by the awesome, and it never occurred to me to question the fact that this book puts [...]
Read on the WondrousBooks blog.I watched the Scott Pilgrim vs the World movie years ago and it was real love For a while it topped the Jeannette s Favourite Movies list Even as I m writing this, I have a strong urge to re watch it Therefore, it s probably completely understandable that I absolutely loved this book It was fan tastic And obviously while they were making the movie, they paid huge attention to detail, because even though I had forgotten some moments and scenes, it was so easy to re [...]
You know how sometimes writers want to please everyone So they end up creating something like a genre salad and its usually bad Here we have the same thing but it works, it works so freaking well First of all the art is a combination of manga and classic comics style Now to the story It starts like a music romance comedy and then out of nowhere comes out a fighting scene Oh and I just love how his opponent drops money after he defeat him.The story is about Scott, a 23 year old boy who s a little [...]
Okay So Here s the problem I have with this comic I have seen it s movie counterpart nearly 100 times I can quote it word for word, and I loved it because it was cool to see a comic like movie With that being said, I think it may have ruined any potential enjoyment I would have gotten from this comic had I not seen the movie.It should be pointed out that the comic basically acted as the movies script, and was nearly word for word from comic to screen I guess I was hoping for character developme [...]
Well that was different Scott Pilgrim s Precious Little Life is a funny graphic novel to review, not because it was laugh out loud funny but because it was a bit meh I have had time to reflect upon it, and having originally awarded it 4 stars, I have downgraded it to 3 There are several reasons why I have done this 1 Despite O Malley s cute illustrations, most of his characters look the same, and unless he drastically changes their hair, their facial features are mirrors of each other These is i [...]
Before I begin I just like to say was no doubt and hesitation that this is probably one of the best comic books ever Why is this book so good Its fun, it s funny, it s clever and it leaves you wanting If you love relationship books you will love this book, if you love books that make you laugh you will love this book, if you love comic books in general you will love this book The story centers around Well Scott Pilgrim Scott lives in Toronto Canada which for me having grown up in Toronto Canada [...]
Wow Scott is a real dick Having a girlfriend and then going for another girl Seriously I hate that kind of attitude in books manga graphic novels so this is 2 stars for that 1 star for the slightly boring story.I have been meaning to read this book comic for some time, lots of people seem to like it and I loved Bryan Lee O Malley s previous book named Seconds However this was just a disappointment.We have a main character named Scott Pilgrim and he is pretty useless Lives with a friend, sleeps i [...]
I can t believe it s been ten years since Scott Pilgrim was published and at least five since I discovered Bryan Lee O Malley s truly original concept I ve started rereading this series earlier today and it was just as fresh as I discovered Scott Pilgrim was this shallow guy dating high school girls and mooching off his roommate but one could just not help root for him Especially when he falls for the mysterious Ramona Flowers and because now he started dating her, now has to fight her seven exe [...]
Lovely mix of Hornbyesque Lad lit, Steven Chow style comedy, and Simon Garfunklesque post adolescent melancholy Worked nicely as a palate cleanser after the wrist slitter that was Into The Wild It s funny and imaginitave without being twee, honest without being obvious, and sweetly sad without drowning in ennui It s a precious little book Even if like me comics aren t quite your thing.
DISTANCE SHOT MANNY is typing on his laptop MANNY typing It s EXACTLY the same as the first half of the movie Scott Pilgrim Versus The World Just uncannily like Except that it isn t as well drawn or funny NEW ANGLE More typing MANNY typing To be honest, I feel a little ripped off I know that s completely illogical since the book came first, and I should be, you know, like praising its originality and wit, without which the movie would never have been But all the same CLOSE UP MANNY turns to came [...]
A good start I actually thought I might find this comic bit boring since I already watched the movie but both writing and art style are different enough to make comic completely different experience Which one is better I am not sure yet.I will make my judgement when when I finish series.Also I hated O Malley s illustrations in Seconds but it didn t bother me here for some reason even though they are nearly same I guess they fit better in weird world of Scott PIlgrim than in mature themed Second [...]
Scott Pilgrim is a light manga style comic about the eponymous 23 year old slacker musician who is dating a 17yo high school student Knife and meets another new girl, Ramona Flowers The story takes place in Toronto and this is the first of 6 books in the series I liked the rapid fire millennial dialog between the characters and especially the crazy ending no spoilers Ok, the plot is not particularly complex but the characters are fun and endearing and the manga style black and white artwork It w [...]
Great fun, I had seen the movie first, so I already knew where this was going Still, the plot and execution are unique, to say the least I m not completely sold on the story, but I want to read the next volume.
This is so much better than the movie The fact that the movie contained pretty much THE WHOLE FREAKING SCOTT PILGRIM SERIES CRAMMED INTO ONEI really enjoyed reading this The transition in this book is very very very entertaining especially Scott s humor I just love Wallace and Scott s relationship as bffs orbrothers hahaha especially the time when they first met The movie is awesome and action packed and amazing I m really a fan of it But it will never ever ever surpass the feel of reading this [...]
I didn t like it _.
Everything about Scott Pilgrim is fun.There s a fell to it It s in the mood The illustrations give the world this video game vibe And the premise seems like something out straight out of a video game.Scott Pilgram has to defeat his love interest s seven evil ex boyfriends In this book, we only meet one evil ex, but the way Scott defeats him, through song, is incredibly fun.But even with everything the series had going for it, I m not sure I ll continue In the first installment, I wanted to see [...]
Ok, I kinda loved this and I don t even know why It was about totally normally almost mundane things til about 3 4 of the way through and then it went all magical realism and stuff I liked the combo.
