Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd to none Wouldn't that be awesome. The last dude in a land of women......Wrong, it sucks more than anything has ever sucked before. Our hero (Yorick) is the poor sole who has to brave the sometime hostile, sometime friendly, sometime physcotic EARTH populated solely by women. Brian K Vaughan kills the ultimate male fantasy, but somehow we love him for it. This was my first taste of Brian's writting, and he does not disappoint. This series stands side by side with the best mature graphics of all time. Never has a graphic novelist captured the emotion, and struggle of a simple minded character (Yorick) in a world that is anything but, as much a Brian K. Vaughan has with Y The Last Man. Ths story starts with a bang, and does not let up for 60 issues ( 10 trades, or 5 HC vol. ) Its is one twist after another. Will we ever find out what happened to the men of our planet. Was it divine selection, a disease of epic proportions, or the master plan of a crazy feminist dictator? All our questions are answered as we travel the long hard road with our buddy Yorrick, and his ever strong cast of partners, and enemies. Buy this series, and forget you ever thought Sandman was the best Veritgo series of all time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A man and his monkey A great series with its share of laughs but also find itself deep in the heart of the main character as he battles not only external forces, but his own feelings and questions about his survival.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fresh entry in dystopian fiction This is an intriguing opening to a dystopian sci-fi tale. In a single moment, every male mammal on the planet dies, except for one man and one monkey. It poses interesting and unique problems as an apocalypse story. it's not simply that half the planet has died. animals can no longer be bred for food, the human species cannot continue. There is a great vacuum in various infrastructure--the narrative points out that 85% of governing officials, and 99% of electricians and other trades are now gone, not to mention the priestly cast of most world religions. There are factions who want to celebrate this catastrophe, factions who see changes in balances of national power It is only the opening volume in a 5 volume series (collected from comic book format) so its hard to weigh in entirely. It did draw me in immediately and i am impatient for the next volumes to arrive in the mail. the story and writing are the appeal here, the art is merely a framework for the story--there is nothing great or terrible about it, so i suppose, as a "graphic" novel, that could be construed as disappointing, but there is more than enough story to make up for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Series I'm writing this review for the entire series of Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan. To sum the 10 books up in one word...Amazing. It is by far the best graphic novel i have ever read. The characters are funny and original and the story is exciting and will have you begging for more. I have read the entire series close to 5 times now and will probably read it a least 5 more times. Everytime I pick it up I instantly fall in love with the characters and their journey. Great read!
