MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
The 80s gave us kids who didn’t fit in until something extremely strange happened to them to make them cool and fun.  The 2000s gave us kids who didn’t fit in until something extremely strange happened to them to make them cool… and angsty.

Entering into the ring this week is one Scott Howard, awkward teen until the light of the silvery moon unleashes his genetic code turning him into TEEN WOLF.  Also entering the ring is one Jacob Black, who… uh… crappit, never seen the movies, have not interest in it, but he is TWILIGHT WOLF!

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour (Volume 6)
It’s finally here! Six years and almost 1000 pages have all led to this epic finale! With six of Ramona’s seven evil exes dispatched, it should be time for Scott Pilgrim to face Gideon Graves, the biggest and baddest of her former beaus. But didn’t Ramona take off at the end of Book 5? Shouldn’t that let Scott off the hook? Maybe it should, maybe it shouldn’t, but one thing is for certain all of this has been building to Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour! The sixth and final volume to indie comics most influential series in the last decade!

    Thanks! :-) That may be Dante’s best art yet.

      I’ve been wondering for a while now, is Dante real? I feel like he might not really exist. I’ve never seen him or heard him on the show, although I’ve only made it up to MSP#152 and Critical Hit #21.

    Completely agreed. You guys look pure badass.

    I think it was John Wesley Shipp, not Harding.

    Not sure if I got the spelling right.

    I wonder if Scott Pilgrim’s author was somehow inspired by Futurama’s episode Anthology of Interest II, more specificaly “Raiders of the Lost Arcade” in which Fry asks the what if machine “What if life was more like a video game?”, it even has a “It’s okay, I had another guy” moment when Fry is killed. After all it did come out a whole 2 years before the first volume of Scott Pilgrim…

    I love Matthew’s frequent mentioning of soap anecdotes, especially since they are rarely entirely accurate (JOHN Black was the Days of our Lives character for instance) although knowing Matthew’s particular brand of humour, perhaps it is intentionally done?

      This one was intentional. I’d have to know which ones were previously thrown to know if they were or not… My soap knowledge is a bit out of date, after all. I haven’t watched regularly since Harley Cooper was a superhero.

    Uh, Matthew, 668 is the neighbor of the Beast.
