When I first heard of this series I was very intrigued by the concept and knew I wanted to read it. Thankfully they had it at my local library and I picked up volume one only to find I could not put it down. This series in amazing as I'm sure many other reviewers are already telling you. The characters are likable and feel like real people despite the extraordinary circumstances around them. They include of course many strong female characters such as a secret agent assigned to protect Yorick, a biologist trying to bring mankind back who may know more about the incident then she's let on, an Israeli officer that will stop at nothing to find the last man on Earth whose motive and goal is unclear, and many more. The dialogue is witty and the storyline is addictive. Nearly every chapter ends with a revelation of some kind that shakes your perception of the world within the comic without relying on cheap tricks to keep the reader engaged. I don't want to spoil anything for people that haven't read it before but I will say that if you haven't given this series a chance yet and it isn't at your local library then here is the best place to start. I seriously doubt you'll regret it.
This was really my first graphic novel that I was fully immersed in, loved reading so much in just a few short pages, I knew I was going to shell out the Big Bucks for the Deluxe versions (even though the prices are roughly the same). The Deluxe editions look fantastic on my bookshelf, and have such a great reread value.
The Deluxe edition includes all the cover art of each issue printed within it, in vibrant colors and a great ratio in accordance to the page. The end of it also includes some preliminary sketches for the characters and some of the props.
Should you purchase this and continue on to Y: The Last Man, Book 2, Deluxe Edition, you'll find that the Deluxe Editions come with something a little different after this, and each one is still a delicious little surprise for you to soak in after the completion of the volumes within.
It has something for everybody. Steamy action, violence, nerd culture, comedy, and more.
**Follow the adventures of Yorrick Brown and his pet capuchin Ampersand as they go on a quest to find his missing fiancee and discover why they, and they alone, are the last two mammals on earth with a Y chromosome.
But I kept reading and found myself not wanting to stop reading once I was about midway. Vaughn creates an amazing and original story (sometimes with cheesy dialogue) that is new to comics. Packed with many plot twists, I never know what is going to happen next. I just ordered book 2 and 3 because I know I will want to finish this series.
Also, credit to Guerra for some fantastic artwork.
