It's still difficult to tell the characters apart, but I'm getting better. Unlike some graphic novels, the graphics - although beautifully rendered - aren't the core of the story. The writing, which is witty and clever, is the core.
I want to explore this term "vague" as I read more; I called this "hovering" too - there is a theme, action, plot constantly hovering above the story, and then swoops in. Like a video game, I presume.
Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World by Bryan Lee O'Malley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's hard to review a series of books individually that are tied together. An interesting, intriguing volume in the six-parter. Graphically speaking, each panel is almost a little work of art, beautifully eye-catching and engaging. But this as much or more about story, character and plot as it is about graphics - and the story really pulls you in. The writing is deadpan, clever, witty; Scott Pilgrim is developing into a charming oaf of a man-boy, seriously crush-worthy. A sold entry in the series.
