‘”Scott Pilgrim” is the best book ever. It is the chronicle of our time. With Kung Fu, so, yeah: perfect.’ Joss Whedon, creator of ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’
‘One of the best things to happen to printed comics this millennium.’ Ain't It Cool News
‘A hilarious, idiosyncratic gem.’ Washington Post
‘A great oddball tale that captures the energy of a generation.’ Publishers Weekly
‘An inventive, genre-tweaking tale of young love, platonic bed-sharing and epic battles unlike anything else you will likely pick up. So, go on, pick it up.’ E! Online
‘Scott Pilgrim is the best 23-year-old ever. Like Proust's Swann, he has a story that takes multiple volumes to unfold, except Pilgrim is even more awesome because he's in a comic book … the series is wildly enjoyable for its absurdist humor, its indelible characters and its growing, inevitable sense of melancholy as Pilgrim becomes that most terrifying of things: 24 years old.’ Glen David Gold, author of ‘Carter Beats the Devil’ and ‘Sunnyside’

As mentioned in my previous reviews I was enjoying the series but cause the movie had done such a good job at replicating the first book and most of the second they weren't the most interesting books to read.
However, this book is the first that the movie moved away from and I enjoyed reading this so much more. I liked getting to know more about Envy and Todd, they're much more fleshed out in this book and we get to know more about Scott's past.
The interaction between Scott and Knives is also a refreshing scene as we get Scott to finally see him act without being madly in love with someone. It was good to see him not revolving around Envy or Ramona, and instead to actually notice Knives wasn't feeling great.
Ramona also gets to kick some booty in this volume, which was nice.
Another thing I really liked is how the fight scene between Scott and Todd wasn't just over in one scene but instead spread out throughout the whole book.
I thought the ending to the first volume didn't really fit. It just came completely out of nowhere. But volume 2 combined this strange, surreal element with the quirkyness of Scott and his friends very well. It didn't pull it off perfectly, but it was good fun none the less.
However, volume 3 is just brilliant. It loses some of the subtlety of the first and second volumes to just go completely bizarre. The manga influences are really coming through in this volume, and it really pays off.
The characters are already quite well developed up to this point in the series, but they continue to grow and your fondness/loathing of them is accelerated 10x with the developments in volume 3.
I know O'Malley's artwork is sometimes panned, but I think it suits the series' pretty well. Some of the captions in this book are superb.
Chances are, if you've already read volumes 1 and 2, and you're looking at this, you've probably already made your mind up to purchase it so don't need me to tell you to. But hopefully this review will be of help to somebody!
All in all, a good part in the series that can only pressure potential readers into finishing the collection.
