Pullbox Preview – Scott Pilgrim Vol 4: Gets it Together!

Scott Pilgrim – Gets it together Vol. 4 (Oni Press – O’Malley) – To give you a little bit of a background, in case you haven’t heard of the everyday adventures of Scott Pilgrim, Scott Pilgrim was both Entertainment Weekly’s and Wizard Magazine’s 2006 Indie book of the Year. Scott is an early 20-something trying to get his life in focus (and thus the name starts to succeed in this volume). Scott deals with his wonderful girlfriend (Ramona) , his “not so awesome but they aren’t quite willing to admit it” band (Sex Bob-omb), numerous ex’s, roommates and groupies… oh yea… and trying to defeat Ramona’s seven ex evil boyfriends to prove his worth. Scott is part satire, part slapstick, part drama… but all smart. The books pokes at topics from serious social issues to roommate conflicts to relational insecurities… Scott even gives a personal tutorial in the back on how to read a comic. While the art is cartoonish in nature, it is wonderfully done and fits right in with the story-telling. If you have someone in your life that you are trying to get into comics, but maybe the traditional superhero comic just isn’t them (and having them be a Friends fan wouldn’t hurt one bit), at $11.95 for a 216 page story… you simply can’t go wrong.
