Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

After two years spent warily crossing the U.S., Yorick Brown and his escorts, agent 355 and biochemist Alison Mann, have gone to sea. Mann has determined that the key to understanding what kept Yorick from dying when all the other men did lies within the body of Yorick's pet monkey, Ampersand, who has been abducted by a Japanese mercenary. Following the monkeynapper accounts for the sixth Y: The Last Man collection opening aboard a pirate ship commanded by an exceedingly intrepid erstwhile comp-lit student. Piquant flashbacks and clever, humanizing, and, under the circumstances, not incredible details, like the pirate captain's background, and accidents, like Yorick finding 355 and Mann in flagrante one night--not to mention the volume-closing at-long-last peek at how Yorick's girlfriend, Beth, is faring in Australia--keep this otherwise more routine installment as riveting as its predecessors. Also, by now the saga's relatively plain artwork has become the Y: The Last Man look, and guest artist Goran Sudzuka wisely doesn't deviate from original limner Pia Guerra's style. Ray Olson

I've pretty much read through all the Y: The Last Man books in one sitting. I tore through this as well. The good parts of this is you see Yorick going through some doubts on seeing how the world works now with the line blurring between who are the good and bad. Also, the tension between 355 and the doctor come to a head; not that you can't see it coming, but I literally yelled outloud, "FINALLY!"

The sub-story of Beth was fantastic. It goes into the relationship between Yorick and Beth; how they met, how they got along, how she got along with Hero, some background on Beth; it was more or less a vision quest. Yorick's been going on faith that Beth is alive half a world away, this was Beth's test of faith.

Overall a good read. I just recently heard that the series is going up to #60 issues. I'm sure it's going to be gripping and the art is going to continue to be great all the way through.

Format: Paperback
Y: The Last Man is one of the best ongoing series out there, with a great premise, good characters, decent art and strong writing, so I'm always eager when a new trade paperback is released.

What we have in this, the sixth volume, is a decent adventure that doesn't feel vital but makes for a good read nonetheless. Girl On Girl was good, make no mistake, but didn't leaving me hanging on the edge of my seat like the last one, Ring of Truth. Like the fourth volume, Safeword, Girl On Girl doesn't do as much to drive the narrative forward as I would have liked. The events of this installment may turn out to be fairly major for the series, but on the surface at least it seemed like a side story while the characters cross the Pacific. Not at all bad, but it didn't feel as essential as the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th volumes in the series.

That said, I still can't recommend this series enough and will continue to follow this as the story unfolds. Believe the hype.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Y: The Last Man is a 10-volume graphic novel collection about what would happen if an unexplained plague wiped out every male on earth, animals and human alike, in a heartbeat. The premise of this story is that two males were inexplicably spared: a young man named Yorick Brown, amateur escape artist and generally something of a loser, and a capuchin monkey. The primary plotline is concerned with how to keep Yorick alive long enough to figure out just why he survived and whether that information can be used to help repopulate the earth, all while Yorick tries to find his girlfriend and would-be fiance, who was on a sabbatical in the Australian Outback when the disaster struck.

In the process, Yorick and the people who help him encounter crazed "Amazons," who believe it is their duty to remove the last vestige of the male of the species from the planet, an out-of-control Israeli Defense Forces commander who wants Yorick for her own purposes, Yorick's mother, a Representative and one of the few members of the U.S. government left alive, Yorick's sister (with a few plot twists I won't reveal), and various others, some who try to aid him, many of whom try to kill him.

The science in this set of graphic novels frankly doesn't make much sense, so you have to turn your brain off, much as you have to do when you read Superman. Some of the depictions of life without men make sense; some less so. There are plot twists galore and *everyone* has secrets, some of which aren't revealed until the final volume.

I found the artwork in this series to be adequate but uninspiring. It reminded me a little of the old Curt Swan Superman and Legion of Super Heroes days.

Format: Paperback
Yorick has some odd travel arrangements. Getting to dress up like a woman, wearing gas masks or odd costumes, putting himself through hell simply to hide that he isn't the thing once known as "man." but taking a trip in a box on a ship is one thing, and finding out that your bodyguard and your pet doctor are having relations is another. For yorick this seems to be a bad thing, too, because 355 and yorick have something that ties them together. Or at least they did, until they found themselves on a frieghter that has one secret out in the open and another riding just below the surface.

Y has been a great read from the beginning, and this is no exception. yorick seems to always get himself into situations he can't handle alone, and he has to figure out exactly what is right or wrong in this new world ran by women. In this trip it is especially bad, because Y finds himself on a ship with a very attractive woman, and finds that they relate on more than one level. The only problem is that the person is not what she appears to be and neither is the ship, and Australia is one of the few places that has been keeping a navy in place to deal with things they deem threats. This is what i like about Y: it has art that is easy on the eyes, stories that make you wonder what you would do in this situation, and times when one wishes they cared about nothing beyond themselves. Y has already found out his sister would rather see him dead than still walking around, he has no idea what has happened to the woman he loves, and has seen how many countries would like to have a man to repopulate their dying flags. He is more valuable than he knows, and now he is running with something that is seen - in the eyes of something powerful at least - as worth less than a torpedo.
What a great thing to read.
