27 Down, 25 To Go "Scott Pilgrim Volume 6" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Scott Pilgrim Volume 6, the final book in the Scott Pilgrim series, is subtitled "Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour." I was skeptical about this book (like I am about all finales), but I found this to be the perfect ending for the series. O'Malley ties up loose ends while offering several surprises along the way, and his characters continue to evolve throughout the book. This final volume entices me to reread the entire series, it's that good.

One thing Scott Pilgrim Volume 6 did for me was increase my interest for seeing the film adaptation, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (out August 13th). The trailers seem to capture the book's nerdy, comic spirit, I hope the film wins over my skepticism like Scott Pilgrim Volume 6 did.

I have been a fan of Bryan Lee O'Malley's comics since I read his graphic novel Lost at Sea years ago. Now that he has wrapped up the Scott Pilgrim, I am anxious to see what's next up this talented cartoonist's sleeve.

My next book is Star Island, by Carl Hiassen.
