angelophile: (Kim Pine 1-2-3-4!)

Couldn't let Beyond the Big Two Week go past without posting at least one snippet from Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim series. And I've chosen a section from the final volume, Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour.

I've picked this moment from the finale, in which the face-off against villain Gideon Graves occurs, mainly because I think the final scenes of the graphic novels play out far more strongly than the film adaptation managed. There's an argument that the book and movie don't tally as the graphic novel was still being worked on at the same time as the movie, but either way, I felt that the movie failed to adequately make it Ramona's story as much as Scott's. Ramona in the book is implicitly not a prize to be won and has her own agency in the final showdown, as this extract shows.

My pick for Awesome New Female Character Week is Ramona Flowers, the mysterious Amazon.ca delivery girl from Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim series. Ramona travels through the subspace dimension to deliver packages and is never seen without her subspace suitcase (storage capacity: unknown). Both are put to good use when Ramona's Fourth Evil Ex, Roxie Richter, shows up and wants to cut Ramona's boyfriend's head off. A fight ensues! On rollerskates.

7 pages from the fourth volume, Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together.

From a 2007 free Comics Festival Anthology here's Bryan Lee O'Malley's "The Wonderful World of Kim Pine." A 4-page strip set in the Scott Pilgrim universe, this one's about Sex Bob-Omb's drummer Kim and her roommate woes. It's also been posted on the official Scott Pilgrim website, along with other free bonus comics.

It was hard to pick just one character to post about, but in the end the victor was Wallace Wells from Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim series. Image heavy post! Scans from vols. 1, 3, and 4.

One more Scott Pilgrim post before I depart for now: A battle between Scott's current girlfriend, Ramona, and his ex, Knives Chau, from Volume 2. The dark-haired girl with Ramona is Scott's sister Stacey. Yada yada 150+ pages yada yada doesn't violate one-third rule.

Really? Only one post for one of the most popular indie comics, like, ever? (Kudos to sandoz_iscariot (sp?) for his good taste!) I intend to remedy that with some previewy highlights from the first volume. (This is way more than seven pages but each volume is ~150+ pages, so that should be okay w/r/t the one-third rule!) This probably isn't spoilers because it doesn't really reveal much that isn't in the movie trailer.

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!
