4.0 out of 5 stars It's great, but..., 19 May 2010
By 
This review is from: Scott Pilgrim vs the World: Volume 2 (Paperback)
The first thing I'd like to point out is I did really like this book, which is why I gave it four stars. The dialogue is fantastic, the characters are great, and the style manages to do so much despite being quite simple. If you liked the first volume, Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life, you'll enjoy this.

The problem I have is that what really sticks in my head are the things I didn't like about the book, which I will admit are minor details and may not bother you at all. After reading the first book, I hoped that the next would devote more time to the Evil exes plot, but I still think this particular story still feels underdeveloped; the evil ex in this story just isn't present enough to have any detail to him, which is a real problem when all the other characters are so well written.

I suppose my issue here is that the story I expected to be the focus was not, and the focus was instead on the relationships between the characters. This isn't a bad thing when the dialogue is this good, but given that the evil exes story line is the one that I was most aware of, to find it fairly absent through the majority of the book was a little disappointing. I haven't read beyond this volume, so I can't say this is a constant in the Scott Pilgrim series, and the plot may be better developed in the next book.

I should say again that the book has great writing and illustration, it's just the story I thought would be the most important is not. I just wanted to say that so that you know what to expect. Otherwise, it's a great little comic.
