Scott Pilgrim Gets it Together cockteases you with by opening with ten color pages that I still don’t get the meaning of. It’s a shame, because it’s so pretty. Either way, the black and white art is still expressive and does a lot with fewer lines than previous volumes. O’Malley jacks up the romance as our hero goes through a hot Canadian summer of growin’ up. It’s a rather cool character progression that O’Malley underscores with one of my favorite jokes in the book. There are a bunch of jokes in this volume, and they’re funny, but this volume has less of the funky action sequences that I was a big fan of in the earlier volumes. It could be that this is a longer book, making the throwdowns feel sparser. But when you get to the last fight, you’ll laugh and for cheer Scott, which is a great feeling. I am absolutely in love with the series and I can’t wait to visit his world again. Buy all these books and lend them to your friends. Don’t ask for them back,just buy them the fuck again.

They forgot to get mayo in the earlier sequence.Wallace is gay and also hilarious.Oh nice one Wallace. You are king of the burns.

Previews are available here and here.
