Great review guys, balance has been restored.
Scott Pilgrim: The Dark Bassist Returns for Vol. 7. He he.
nice shirt j
I NEED THAT SHIRT!
Although I’d rather have one that says
“Drawing correct anatomy that’s so pre-1990, IMAGE Comics”
I LOVE THAT SHIRT!!!!!! You crack me up Jose.
J is gives us secret messages: support Brian Michael Bendis
i have been going to book stores and no one has valoume 1, volume 2 is the lowest they have. :(
My store doesn’t have it either
Nice shirt J! Where did you get it?
Damn, can’t watch this yet. Just finished Vol.5 this past weekend, without a doubt the best cliffhanger of the series. Can’t wait to read 6!
Love the review. Didn’t know Scott was so “superficial” in the book. He doesn’t come off that way in the movie previews… But it sounds like Bryan Lee O’Malley is actually taking a MORE REALISTIC view of people in their mid-20’s than the movie might be.
Course, I haven’t seen the film. Cera might be playing a superficial fuck for all I know.
Jose, you’re observation about everything being SO important when you’re a teen or in your twenties is SO spot on. Elliott, you’re observation about everything continuing to be important– ay least for certain people– is spot on too.
Although, if you’re like me… I have been through a LOT of death in my relatively short time on this planet… So, from my perspective– NOTHING is a big deal anymore. Except lovin’ women… Which is why it’s (SPOILER! SPOILER!) perfect that Ramona says she might not stick around for long.
I like the shirt too, Jose! VERY SLIMMING. Hides the beers well. ;-)
Seriously, where the heck did you get that shirt?
I thoroughly enjoyed this series, more than any comic I’ve read in a whole lot of years. Having said that, I did feel the last volume sorta had nothing new. There were a lot of the same video game jokes that we’ve seen in other volumes. Yeah, there were always video game jokes (Scott gets a new life!) but usually each volume had a new, different type of running joke.
Anyway, I did like that Scott and Ramona had no real resolution except to give it another go – very mature handling of their relationship. In the end, I was kinda left wondering why Scott likes Ramona so much. Scott and Kim seem like a much nicer couple. And when Scott kissed Knives, I was like where the heck did that come from? And considering how Knives has been pining for Scott since the very beginning up through volume 5, I found it a bit hard to believe that she’d kiss him in volume 6 and feel it’s a mistake.
Also, Jose and John Layman need to get a room already.
I think someone from the ccw nation sent it to him. I’m pretty sure it was insideman.
i got to ask, should i read the comic first before seeing the movie???
what an amazing shirt any time you do a bendis rant or a leob rant or millar you have to wear that shirt
I thought it was a damn good ending. And hell on an X-strike. The missing links did fit for what I’d call a “slice of life” story. This was such a great book, and frankly a great example for the medium. It shows what people can do in comics that can’t be done in other mediums, most notably films as one can make a clear compare/contrast.
Great review pointed out a few things that I didn’t think of fully, I was trying to read it from a bit of a feminist angle, but it’s kinda hard when you honestly have 2 great female side characters in the book, also how the book demonizes characters right before the end. So many little things that make such an impact.
This book was just craft, awesome, and amazing.
