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

The issue is about evenly split between the action sequences and the quieter moments.

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.

After reading the initial book on a Tuesday, I had to go and get what I could to finish reading the series.

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
Brian K. Vaughan continues to churn out awesome volume after awesome volume of "Y: The Last Man." This trade paperback consists of the four issue "Girl on Girl" story arc (that features Yorick, 355, and Dr. Mann aboard a ship that is in big time conflict with a submarine that is a bit too close for comfort) and the one-shot "Boy Loses Girl," which gives us an update on Beth's situation.

Every since the Safeword arc, "Y: The Last Man" has pretty much been solid gold through and through. So when I say that this TPB is the weakest volume in the series since the third book, that's really not a negative remark, because this was a really, really entertaining book. I wouldn't mark it as high as "Safeword" or "Ring of Truth", which contained some of the best comics I've ever read, but this is still way-above-average stuff.

I wasn't in love with the story of the four-issue "Girl on Girl" arc, but it was good enough to thoroughly entertain. But then, in the last issue of this TPB, Brian gives us a non-linear, dream-like, flashback-heavy story featuring Yorick's girlfriend Beth that gives us a lot of necessary insight into her character. I'm loving Vaughan's one-shots, because he really knows how to pack an emotionally powerful story into twenty-two pages better than anyone else.

Format: Paperback
The fifth collection in the series, RING OF TRUTH, saw Yorick, 355, Dr. Mann, and Ampersand complete their transcontinental journey. GIRL ON GIRL sees them crossing the Pacific on the trail of Ampersand's abductor, who has taken him to Japan. It isn't that the stories here are bad; they simply aren't as good as what came before or what would come after.

And yes, there is girl on girl action. Although there had been some extremely repressed sexual tension between Yorick and Agent 355 in the first few books, nothing had happened. So one could hardly blame 355 when she finds herself in a moment alone with Dr. Mann that leads to some much needed affection. Yorick, who to tell the truth is a real weenie of a character (and the series weakest element), reacts badly upon discovering them together.

This isn't quite filler material, but it is close. It introduces some plot elements that lead into future issues, but I agree with those who think these issues are somewhat pedestrian.
