Ce tome fait suite à Kimono Dragons (épisodes 43 à 48). Il contient les épisodes 49 à 54, initialement parus en 2006/2007, écrits par Brian K. Vaughan, dessinés par Pia Guerra (épisodes 49 à 52) et Goran Sudzuka (épisodes 53 et 54), encrés par José Marzan junior, mis en couleurs par Zylonol, avec des couvertures de Massimo Carnevale.

***
Épisodes 49 à 52 - La petite troupe est maintenant à Shanzhen, en Chine. Yorick Brown et Rose Copen font le point sur la situation et sur la suite des opérations. Pendant ce temps là, l'agent 355 et Allison Mann font les courses au marché, et Allison avoue quelques petits détails qui peuvent avoir leur importance à 355. Mais bientôt les 4 se retrouvent prisonniers dans une clinique d'un genre particulier, à faire face au mystérieux docteur M qui leur expose une théorie fascinante sur la cause de la mort de tous les individus mâles et sur la propagation de cette "maladie" à la vitesse de la lumière. La sécurité de cette installation est assurée par la ninja Toyota.

Au fil des pages, le lecteur a du mal à se défaire de l'impression que Brian K. Vaughan fait converger ses différentes intrigues de force vers une résolution rassemblant tout le monde dans le dernier tome

This graphic novel is just fantastic. I heard of it thanks to Ray William Johnson (videomaker on Youtube) years ago. He explained the synopsis and I was thrilled so I bought the first volume and I was hooked. Read it really, it is very interesting and you think about the current world and the society.

HASH(0x957de768) étoiles sur 5 The end is nigh 5 juin 2007
Par Tom Knapp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm not ready for "Y: The Last Man" to come to an end, yet volume nine of the series, "Motherland," makes it pretty clear that conclusions are just around the corner.

Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's excellent Vertigo series has set Yorick, the last man, on a global mission of science and personal salvation. His constant companions are Ampersand, his pet monkey and the other surviving male; Dr. Allison Mann, a genetic scientist with many secrets; and Agent 355, a government bodyguard and assassin who keeps her secrets under lock and key. Also along for the ride is Rose, an Australian spy and Allison's lover, whose loyalties are still unclear.

More answers come to light in this book, as the apparent architect of the man-killing plague comes to light and Yorick discovers he isn't the last living man after all. Meanwhile, 355 mixes it up with a ninja, Allison starts bleeding and Rose makes an uncomfortable call home. In Paris, Yorick's missing girlfriend Beth may be waiting, while back in the United States Yorick's sister Hero, the mother of his child (a different Beth), a Russian agent and a former astronaut duke it out with modern Amazons. There is an unexpected parting of ways, a surprising death or two, a couple of emergency surgeries and some wild monkey sex. Portions of this book will keep you on the edge of your seat, while others will knock you back on your butt. And all of these threads seem to be converging, although it's still anyone's guess how things will turn out in the end.

I fear the next volume will be the last, so I am reluctant to read it -- but I hope it's published soon!

HASH(0x957e463c) étoiles sur 5 The end is near 23 mai 2007
Par N. Durham - Publié sur Amazon.com

Brian K. Vaughan's compulsively addictive series is wheeling to a close, and when reading Motherland, the ninth collected volume of the series, this becomes all the more apparent. Things come to a head as Yorick, his pet monkey Ampersand, Agent 355, Dr. Mann, and Rose search for Dr. Mann's kidnapped mother, and learn that Yorick indeed is not the last man on earth. More secrets of the plague that wiped out the men are revealed as everyone makes more shocking discoveries, and 355 and the ninja named Toyota face off in a fight that one of which won't walk away from. In the meantime, Yorick's girlfriend Beth awaits him in France, while his other Beth and sister Hero are on the run. There is also a one-shot devoted to the super-model turned garbage girl that Yorick had a run in with way back in the first volume, which is interesting as well. While it's clear that the series is headed towards a close, Vaughan doesn't rush through things and keeps the book well paced. Co-creator Pia Guerra offers the same brand of artwork that you'd come to expect by now, so take it or leave it. All in all though, Motherland is another excellent volume in the Y: The Last Man series, and here's hoping the end is as great as the whole.

HASH(0x957e4a20) étoiles sur 5 One of the Best of The Best 31 mai 2008
Par Pat Shand - Publié sur Amazon.com

It feels like the end.

Like Lost, Brian K. Vaughan's "Y: The Last Man" is a sweepingly epic series made up of huge mysteries that only get more mysterious with each new volume. Over the course of the first eight books, there has been a lot of build-up with only a few of the major questions answered. That, however, changes with this volume: "Motherland."

In his best effort since the fifth book, Vaughan finally answers the big question: How and why did all the men die out? The explanation seems shaky at first, but through scientific reasoning and considerable build-up, BKV makes it work. And the payoff is phenomenal. This is the stuff we've been waiting nearly fifty issues for, folks, and it'll keep you reading until you hit the last page. When I picked this book up, I planned to read the first issue and then go to sleep. However, I just couldn't put it down until I finished the main story line of the book (the first four issues). We get a history and origin for Toyota, a final confrontation between Toyota and Agent 355, a conclusion to the Dr. Mann/355/Yorick journey, and so much more.

The final two issues in this book are one-shots. Earlier in "Y: The Last Man," Brian K. Vaughan made some iffy one-shot issues (the two-part 'Comedy and Tragedy' from book three comes to mind), but at this point, he has such control over the story that he can veer off from the main plot without losing consistency. The first issue catches up with a minor-minor character, Waverly (the chick who gathered the bodies), who we haven't seen since the first book of the series. The story is poignant and probably shows Vaughan at his least subtle, but the parallel he shows us at the final page is really breath-taking. The final issue catches up with the acting troupe from the aforementioned "Comedy and Tragedy" two-part, and Vaughan handles that story way better here. This one-shot is probably one of his best, as it works as the conclusion to "Comedy and Tragedy," a nod to the writing process, and a metaliterary nod to comics as well.

All in all, it's one of the best volumes of what could very well be the best comic series of all time.

HASH(0x957e4f48) étoiles sur 5 Losing Steam, But Hinting At Great Things To Come 25 juillet 2007
Par Scott William Foley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In case you're not familiar with Brian K. Vaughan's Y: The Last Man, the premise is that a catastrophic plague has wiped every man on the planet but one, Yorick Brown. For an inexplicable reason, Yorick and his pet monkey, Ampersand, were spared. Now Yorick desperately wants to traverse a planet in chaos as women work to establish order once more so that he can reunite with his girlfriend. He travels with Agent 355, who has been charged with protecting Yorick, and the scientist Allison Mann, who tirelessly works to determine what made Yorick and Ampersand different from anything else with the Y chromosome.

Motherland is the ninth volume in this graphic novel series. When Y first started, it was unlike anything else I'd ever read in comic books. Action-packed with a real sense of plot and purpose, Vaughan broke barriers with every installment. However, on this volume, I feel things are starting to drag out a bit. Still an enjoyable read, but it's definitely treading water compared to earlier volumes.

But, be that as it may, I have every faith in the world that Vaughan will regain steam as he comes to the conclusion of this series. It was understood from the get go that this was a finite title, and I really think it will be a joy to read from start to finish once it's concluded.

For those of you unfamiliar with Brian K. Vaughan, he is a master storyteller in the world of comic books, but he's also the guy they brought in to get the television show LOST back on track when it waned a bit last season. Did you notice a discernable improvement in LOST towards the end of last season? You can thank BKV for that.

Please realize that Y is not your mainstream comic book such as Superman or Batman. It is a comic book, yes, but it is more like the HBO of the comic book world. There is adult language at times and adult themes. However, if you've ever been interested in seeing sequential art at its best, give Y a try.

Y is the male chromosome.

Y is the Yorick Brown.

Y is the last man.

In this graphic novel series, we follow the adventure of Yorick, the last know man alive after a sudden plague wipes out the mass of male humanity - and all the male mammals except for Yorick's helper monkey-in-training, Ampersand.

I cannot give you an accounting of the individual books. After reading the initial book on a Tuesday, I had to go and get what I could to finish reading the series. I was able pick up all but the last volume. Having read through the next eight volumes, I sit and wait for the final volume to be sent to me. I can't wait.

I want to know just what caused the plague. I want to know if there's a cure. I want to know if our hero (not our Hero) finds his love. The narrative is compelling and I fell in and I need a resolution. I have to give credit to the collaborative team behind the creation and continuation of the series. I literally couldn't put the books down and I was at a loss when I had to stop with the story arc unfinished.

Read these books, they might not be deep, but they sure are entertaining.
