Scott Pilgrim Vs. the Universe - Bryan Lee O'Malley Not quite as fun as the others? I guess because it's setting up dramatic tension for the next chapter?

This one didn't feel as cohesive though. The parents were kind of plunked. Ramona picking a fight about Scott cheating seemed odd after what happened at the end of Vol 4. And the secondary characters didn't live and breathe and be awesome they way have every other time. Maybe that's it. The best thing about Scott Pilgrim has never been Scott Pilgrim, it's been everyone else, and in this one everyone else doesn't get to be awesome.

Still good, just, you know, in comparison. It's a high bar that's been set.
