Scott Pilgrim Vol. 2: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Bryan Lee O'Malley
With Scott Pilgrim, O'Malley has taken all the fun things about growing up after 1980 and combined them in his series of original graphic novels. There's videogame action with a rock 'n' roll soundtrack, characters you can't help but love, and pop culture references galore. Scott Pilgrim Vol. 2 carries on the excitement of the first volume while adding more depth and history to Scott and his gang. O'Malley's manga-influenced art is sharp and fun, but it's his hilarious dialogue that makes the books impossible to put down.
