Scott Pilgrim and The Infinite Sadness by Bryan Lee O’Malley

Rating: ***** (5 out of 5)

Review: Leaps and bounds better than the first two volumes. You get to know the characters deeply in this one, with lots of dynamic back story and dialogue. There is an intensity that was lacking from the previous volumes, and the story really starts picking up pace.

The fights are less superficial and the relationships get more complicated. The artwork also gets more interesting and unusual, and the “meta” comments (for example: “Right. It’s almost 3.30, and we’ve been here for a quarter of this book. Let’s call it a night.”) are much funnier and well placed.

Looking forward to the next one. Three exes down, four to go!
