Page 45 Review by Jonathan

"Hey Ramona... have you ever dated anyone that wasn't evil?"
"Once, this guy Doug. He was kind of a dick, though."

Yes, he's back! World class slacker and most oblivious hero of all time, Scott Pilgrim is in for some double trouble!

This volume kicks off with Scott's birthday and him solemnly vowing to be the best 24-year-old ever, before going straight into evil overdrive with the entrance of Ramona's -- [redacted - ed.]

But will his martial skills be enough to save his relationship with Ramona? Are they even destined to be together after she confesses to an aghast Scott she doesn't even like his band Sex Bob-omb? Is she really the clean-cut heroine she seems to be? Why does her head sometimes start glowing?!! Will Scott ever realise Kim Pine his oldest and dearest friend is still in love with him!?!?! Dare they tell Ramona about Scott's innocent sleep-over as he forgets his key for Ramona's apartment yet again?!!! Will Steven 'The Talent' Stills finally finish mixing the Sex Bob-omb album? Just who is Wallace's mysterious new boyfriend? Can Knives Chau ever get over Scott and stop being so goddamn annoying and clingy? And will Young Neil ever find someone who'll actually just go out with him?

Ahhhh, so many different plot strands tangling, weaving and inter-twining this time around as Bryan Lee O'Malley skilfully mixes things up yet again to mangle Scott's heart-strings as well as our own and leave us wondering exactly what happy ending it is we all want to see.

Colour Edition extras include a behind-the-scenes process piece on how O'Malley approached each book from script through thumb-nails for full pencils, lettering and inks, as well as initial designs and ideas jotted down on paper, some of which never made the final cut. Also: loads of poster and t-shirt designs, plus a couple of watercolour paintings.
