Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness
Bryan Lee O’Malley
Somewhere near Mount Uniacke, Bryan Lee O’Malley is constructing the ongoing tale of the titular 23-year-old Toronto musician and his complicated love life, mashing manga-influenced art with indie rock, pop cults, video games and destroying Hogtown landmarks—good-byeeee Honest Ed’s, you monolithic eyesore—with glee. Though Scott is supposed to fight seven of Ramona’s superpowered exes in order to date her, much of this volume (the third of six) concerns his nasty ex Envy Adams, and culminates in a flashback-heavy battle with an evil vegan at Lee’s Palace. So, uh, when’s volume four coming out, O’Malley?
