Editorial Reviews

Review

"The smartest comic book series for adults."

"Artfully written . . . Y remains a helluva trip."

"A seriously funny, nuanced fable about sudden global matriarchy."

"Funny and scary...an utterly believable critique of society. Grade: A+"

Rivals TV's Lost as a smart, consistently entertaining work of popular art."

"Innovative and unique, Y is a comic unlike anything going from either big-production houses today."

*Y: The Last Man, Deluxe edition, Vol 2*

This high-quality, full-sized, hardcover collects the third and fourth volumes of the 10-volume series. For collectors, these 'deluxe' editions are certainly worth waiting for, and at about the same price as buying both TBPs, there is very little to discourage you here. Removable dust covers, larger format, high-quality pages, and a little extra artwork are nice, but throw in the little bonus that each of these editions has at the end (the written script for one of the episodes in this one) and you've got a real treat for "Y" enthusiasts. Personally, I'm glad I waited on this series for the release of these deluxe editions.

Deluxe edition volume 2 starts out with One Small Step, where Yorick, Dr. Mann, and Agent 355 learn about possible male survivors on the International Space Station that are about to crash land in the Mid-West. This story arc introduces a couple of new characters, including a sharp-shooting Russian that promises to play a role in future volumes, and strengthens the role of Alter, the Israeli special ops commander that has some seriously big plans for Yorick. "One Small Step" maintains the same 'on-the-run' feel that the series started with, and lives up to readers' expectations. [5-stars]

The second story arc in this volume is "Comedy and Tragedy", where we follow a troupe of actors trying to make their mark on the new world by putting on a play about (You guessed it!) the last man on the planet. This story didn't do too much for me personally, but had its moments.

After reading a lot of the Invincible series, this series was recommended to me. I was instantly drawn in. The reason I reviewed the second was to make the point that the first may have been amazing, but the level of production doesn't drop at ALL. I finished the first three in a weekend, and am waiting on the fourth to get to my door.

Once you start with the "Y:The last man" graphic novel, you can't stop. Therefore this second book is a more than needed step in this thrilling epic adventure. I had bought the first book in one of my trips and, after 1h, I knew I had to go to Amazon to buy (urgently) the rest of the novel. Highly recommended.

The reason why I am giving it 2 stars is I bought all 4 books (and pre-ordered the fifth) together and all the 4 books came badly damaged. the story is great one of my favorite graphic novels the art is cool the paper quality is not like the one you find in a normal comic book or graphic novel it is more like a normal book paper quality (the way it feels and looks) overall it is a great book if you can buy the deluxe edition I would suggest you to buy that one at least it won't come as damaged as this edition or maybe I wasn't lucky and I got the books this way maybe you won't get them damaged you can't really tell how the books will come with AMAZON

I really enjoyed this second book of the graphic novel series, especially with how it attacks a lot more adult themes than the first book. The result though, is parts that are a little x-rated and odd, but they serve to really evolve the main character Yorick Brown. There are excellent bits here, with the possibility of more men existing (as they were orbiting the Earth at the time of the event that killed all of the males in the world), militias in the time of a fractured government, traveling acting troupes (as the loss of electricity has eliminated most forms of entertainment), among other adventures. I will say that two of the issues in the middle are kind of goofy, they probably made a lot more sense when they were in the form of a single issue comic book, but here they really feel out of place. This short section features a ninja attacking the monkey Ampersand, who is rescued by a group of actors, and serves as a muse for a play featuring the last man on earth. It's really an odd tangent, but in the end it really helps develop some of the characters. There are a bunch of new characters introduced in this book, and they are all excellent and unique, that it sucks when they exit the story, either by violence or just the main group moving on without them. The art is again excellent here, and I love some of the use of full page panels that mixed in throughout, any of which would be great as a poster. Overall, this is an excellent sequel, and after reading it I immediately bought the other three deluxe edition books of the series sight unseen. Highly recommended.

I still have about 30 pages to go in Book 2, but this is such an entertaining comic book series. I started reading this comic after researching the web for good graphic novels, and this one got me addicted right from the start. Excellent writing, great sense of humor, and sharp, detailed artwork. Everything a comic book series should be.

This is one of the greatest series I have ever read in my life. The story is about a man named Yorick and how he (and his monkey) are the only males to survive after something kills all the men in the world at the same time. Yorick and his monkey embark on a journey to find out what happened to all the men, and to get to Australia where his girlfriend, Beth, may still be waiting for him. The story is gripping, intense, funny, and tragic. These books are a must read!
