I really enjoyed the first volume in this series and wanted to get more of that awkward comedy style the book has. So here is my review of volume 2.
Does Scott and Ramona’s burgeoning relationship have a future? Isn’t Scott still supposedly dating Knives Chau? Who is Ramona’s second evil ex-boyfriend, and why is he in Toronto? Who are The Clash At Demonhead, and what kind of bizarre art-punky music do they play? Who’s their hot girl keyboardist, and what is Scott’s relation to her? Why is The Clash At Demonhead Knives Chau’s new favourite band? Fights! Drama! Secrets revealed!

I like that at the start of this volume we get a little flashback into scotts past and how he knows a few of his ex girlfriends. This is brilliant, especially when you get deeper into the book and find out that some of them are going to be coming back into his life very soon and can bring a problem or two for him.I have always loved getting backstory for characters as it means the reader is able to form a deeper bond with the character. It is even better with scott as it sort of shows us why he is as messed up as he is.
I really do like the art style this series has got as it has the manga look of the black and white images but with the style of a graphic novel and it makes you want to look at everything you can possibly look at to be able to get the most out of this book.
One part that I didn’t like but loved in the movie was the skateboarding/grinding part, I personally think it was done a lot better in the movie. In the book it was a 3 page part and it felt like it didn’t even matter to the story.
The character interactions are always great and getting to see two characters that should be kept apart at all costs meeting is always something that I am going to look forward to such as romana and knives.
I am looking forward to jumping into the third book and seeing how the story continues.
