Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour

I almost hated to read this one - it sat on my shelf for ages - because I was sad to have the series end.  It is such a quirky, bizarre story, smart and original without taking itself too seriously (or seriously at all, for that matter).  The main plot is about Scott Pilgrim, a young 20-something who's been floundering at life for some time, never quite able to commit to one thing or another.  When he meets Ramona, though, he finally finds something worth committing to - mostly.  Issues from the past haunt him and sabotage his plans, and in this final volume, everything comes to a very satisfying - and strange and funny - conclusion.  This graphic novel series certainly isn't for everyone, but for those of you who enjoy the twisted and funny, you should definitely check it out.  My favorite by O'Malley continues to be Lost at Sea (an amazing coming-of-age story that all those who think they don't like graphic novels should read), but I love this series, too.
