Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour had a lot of scenes that I think could qualify for "One Perfect Moment Week," but here's my pick. SPOILERS for the last volume of the series!

Alas, since this book is new, I can't post more of this scene. But some context: Scott Pilgrim is fighting Gideon Gordon Graves, Ramona's 7th Evil Ex. Gideon has been using his powers to literally get inside and mess with Scott's and Ramona's heads, and part of the final battle takes place in Ramona's subconscious. Gideon thinks he's made himself "all powerful" there, but...

Besides just being a kick-ass moment in general, I love this moment for the agency it gives Ramona--she's not a princess in a tower who needs rescuing (she saves Scott's bacon here). She has her own battles to fight. And who hasn't wanted to literally kick that one Evil Ex out of their head?

Awesome. I've only got Vol. 1, but I've been looking forward to the movie since the first trailer. This... is great.

Everytime the "power of love" is brought up in this series, I keep hearing "Power of Love" by...Huey Lewis, I think? You know, the song from Back to the Future. And not even the whole song. Just the part where there's no instrumental and he just shouts "It's the POWER of love!"

And I hear the Sailor Moon song, so bless you for giving me something else to get stuck in my head instead.

I think they played off of Sailor Moon as well somewhere in this part.

Someone needs to Perfect Moment the Chrono Trigger finishing move.

Almost redeemed everything I didn't like about vol. 6.

God damn, I just mainlined my entire Scott Pilgrim collection for the last book, and it did not disappoint. I'm seriously so proud of Bryan Lee O'Malley - you can see him pushing his art, story, and characters from where they started, even though plenty of his fans would have been totally happy if he never changed. I love the whole message about how becoming an adult doesn't mean you stop dreaming -- you just stop pretending both you and the people you love aren't perfect, and kept trying to change for the better.

Good choice for your scans, because Ramona's moment in the sun was SO right on! Agency, yeah!

Although I have to mention that the people over on the Seattle Stranger Slog pointed out that the composition of the cover makes it look like Scott Pilgrim's "hot pink ballsack is hanging out."
