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!

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.
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 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.
