Épisodes 11 à 15 (dessins de Pia Guerra, encrage de José Marzán junior, couleurs de Pamela Rambo) - Yorick Brown, Ampersand, l'agent 355 et le docteur Alison Mann s'offrent un instant de détente alors que leur train est arrêté pour avarie matérielle. L'agent 355 a trouvé un paquet de cigarettes et en profite pour fumer. Une fois les réparations effectuées, le voyage reprend, mais une passagère clandestine s'installe sur le toit de leur wagon ; il s'agit de Natalya Zamyatin, un officier de l'armée russe. Dans l'espace, l'équipage d'une mission Soyouz a décidé de revenir sur Terre, leurs réserves s'épuisant. L'équipage est composé de 2 hommes (Vladimir et Joe) et d'une femme (Ciba Weber). Depuis un endroit inconnu, le mystérieux commanditaire continue d'informer Alter Tse'elon (officier de l'armée israélienne) des déplacements de Yorick Brown. La distance s'amenuise et la rencontre est proche.
Après un tome exceptionnel sur la différence des sexes, Brian K. Vaughan réalise une histoire plus centrée sur l'intrigue. Il n'y a toujours aucune explication sur la cause de l'éradication de la population mâle, mais la perspective d'autres survivants masculins apparaît. Le lecteur retrouve ce qui fait la spécificité de cette série, et de l'écriture de Brian K. Vaughan.Lire la suite ›

"One Small Step" contains two stories, the primary one being the title story. Yorick, Agent 355 and Dr. Mann travel through Missouri to Kansas and seek to help two more potential male survivors of the plaque to arrive safely on Earth from orbit. All males of all species on Earth died in the plague, but it didn't extend to those males OFF the planet. The International Space Station houses two male and one female astronaut, all of whom are dangerously close to suffocating in the failing life support of the station. They have to evacuate the station and find out whether they can survive now that several months have gone by since the plague.
Thrown into the mix are the Israeli soldiers, led by their stoic Colonel, whose motives have been unclear until this story. Suffice it to say that old scores die hard.
Brian Vaughn builds the tension slowly with several events threatening to collide explosively. The violent colonel, an endangered Yorick, and the fate of the astronauts all hangs in the balance. I found myself flying through the climactic pages of this story, eager to find out what was going to happen.
You really have to read the first two volumes before you move on to this one. There's too much back story you'll miss. But it's worth the time. This is one of the best comics to come out in the past several years and is not to be missed!
In the process, Yorick and the people who help him encounter crazed "Amazons," who believe it is their duty to remove the last vestige of the male of the species from the planet, an out-of-control Israeli Defense Forces commander who wants Yorick for her own purposes, Yorick's mother, a Representative and one of the few members of the U.S. government left alive, Yorick's sister (with a few plot twists I won't reveal), and various others, some who try to aid him, many of whom try to kill him.
The science in this set of graphic novels frankly doesn't make much sense, so you have to turn your brain off, much as you have to do when you read Superman. Some of the depictions of life without men make sense; some less so. There are plot twists galore and *everyone* has secrets, some of which aren't revealed until the final volume.
I found the artwork in this series to be adequate but uninspiring. It reminded me a little of the old Curt Swan Superman and Legion of Super Heroes days. It's clean and uncluttered but this isn't artwork that's going to blow you away or that you'll want to show off to your friends. The real attraction to this series is the writing. To a certain extent, I think that's appropriate, as this doesn't have the grandeur and the scope of, say, the latest Avengers or Justice League space battle.
In this third volume of the series, we meet Natalya, a Russian agent who has come to the Midwest to try to facilitate the landing of a Soyuz spacecraft, containing three astronauts, two of them male. We also find out the surprise identity of the person who is helping the Israeli general to find Yorick, and how they have been able to track him, thanks to a tracking device that was implanted in Yorick's monkey.
More important, the story really starts taking off in this volume, with more depth and greater understanding of the individual characters. Yorick finally starts growing up and starts sounding and behaving less like a whiny child. The battle sequences and strategies keep you on the edge of your seat (metaphorically speaking) and there are several plot twists, the most notable of which is what happens to the astronauts who finally manage to land their spacecraft and what happens to the leader of the Israeli forces. There is even a hint that something may be developing between Yorick and his bodyguard, Agent 355.
I won't spoil the surprises but I have to say that the author really hits his stride with this volume, as the stories just get better and better. In particular, the characters seem more real, and I started to care what happened to them, the mark of good writing.
The one thing I didn't like was the introduction of a group of players and their interaction with a small town in the heartland. This came out of nowhere and I wasn't impressed. Even more out of left field was the appearance of a ninja of some kind, named Toyota (?!), who appears to have kidnapped Yorick's monkey, Ampersand but then let him escape into the hands of the players. After the quality of the earlier writing, this sequence didn't impress me.
Overall, though, this issue is where I really started getting seriously involved in the story and I can recommend it more than the first two.
The Russian space capsule is going to land in the American heartland. It happens to be near a research facility that should be able to keep the male astronauts isolated from whatever killed all of the males actually on the planet (Yorrick and Ampersand excepted). But of course nothing is simple in this new world and the Israeli army unit makes their play as they learn the truth about the space capsule.
Suddenly we meet a troupe of actors who find the injured Ampersand. They quickly discover he is male and decide to do a play about the last man on Earth. A mysterious sword-wielding figure keeps an eye on the action from the shadows. When the big performance finally arrives there is some chaos and Yorrick arrives to reclaim Ampersand. The story ends with a quick joke after we learn what some feel is necessary to save the world.
Two very different stories. The first is full of action and brings together a number of continuing characters and advances the plot significantly. The second story is more of a pause with almost no action and none of the continuing characters. It is hard to rate a book made up of two such different parts but I felt each story had something to offer even if the second story seems very unlike the rest of the series. Check it out.
I went home and bought all the available graphic novels, 6 at the time. I have no regrets. I have since lent these novels to about a dozen people and they all loved it.
This comic perfectly blends action, comedy, sci-fi, romance, and drama together to create a world where women rule.
