Format: Paperback
We begin with a text recap of what happened in the previous volume. This features a number of statistics about how our society is divided and the roles that men and women occupy. Most airline pilots, CEO's and violent criminals are men. Without these roles being filled what will our society evolve into. One of the characters also quotes similar figures mid text. It is nice to know your writer does his homework, and by being so informed, we can have greater confidence in his story.

It has been said that good fiction concerns extraordinary things happening to ordinary people. Although our central characters include a brilliant scientist, a heroic soldier and a female James Bond, many people they meet along the way are regular folk caught up in this unfolding catastrophe. Whilst there is a great deal of homicidal feminism, which can make two dimensional characters, there are also touching moments of normality. Yorick, who has become smugly annoying, does seem to grow and change and behave realistically, assuming that is possible being the last man on Earth.

The raw innovation and bold style of the first volume fade into more conventional storytelling now our attention has been captured. The art is solid but not exceptional. The dialogue is generously spaced out however with the minimum amount of text per panel making this a real page turner that doesn't feel wordy or exposition heavy. This is the proverbial difficult second album and while it can't manage the spectacle of the first it exposes us to important points of view on love and death and sets up a great hook for the next part. Thumbs Up!

Format: Paperback
I was a bit critical of Vol 1 but vol 2 is much much better. The foundations are all laid down and this is just a real page turner. Yorick is much more likeable in this vol. The interplay between Yorick and his sister is pretty interesting and I am excited to see how this turns out. When you finish this I was desperate to read Vol 3. The art is ok, nothing spectacular but serves its purpose.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A. Ross TOP 500 REVIEWER on 23 Sept. 2005
Format: Paperback
I missed all the hype about this series, and just happened upon the trade paperbacks at the library. So far, it's good, very solid storytelling and art that grabs you, but is perhaps not quite as amazing as the many gushing reviews I've since read make it out to be. The premise, as the title says, is that some kind of plague spontaneously kills every male on earth at the same instant -- except a 20something slacker named Yorick and his monkey Ampersand. Following the events of the first book, we pick up the story of Yorick, his government agent bodyguard (Agent 355), and the geneticist who might be able to solve save humanity, as they try to make it cross-country from Boston to San Francisco.
The Amazon death squad (which melodramatically includes Yorick's sister) is still hot on his trail, and the mysterious Israeli army officer from the first book is also in hot pursuit. The bulk of the story takes place in Marrisville, Ohio, after the trio is forced to jump off a train. This is an apparently idyllic small town leaving in peace and seclusion compared to the big cities seen in the first book. Of course, the town of 67 women has a dark secret, and when it's revealed it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense. And when Yorrick is let in on the secret, he inexplicably flies off the handle about it in a jarring scene that comes out of nowhere. It's a major misstep by the authors, and one that has no storytelling purpose whatsoever. This volume climaxes in a showdown between the heroes and their Amazonian pursuers, and the meeting between Yorick and his sister is handled well.
However, the most intriguing part of the story is a very minor person who makes only two appearances in the background of the story, but has some earthshaking information that no one seems to listen to.

Before Saga, there was Ex Machina. And before Ex MAchina there was this comic book beauty. Oh great Brian K Vaughan, in my opinion: a less hippy, less hairy, less up-tight modern day Alan Moore.
This series is a great series.
The characters feel real; the story makes you think, makes you laugh and grips you like a boa constrictor. It is perfect.

LONG LIVE BRIAN K VAUGHAN!!!

That is all.

I personally found that Y: The Last Man was a bit of a grower, it took me a little while to appreciate what was in front of me. Buying all ten volumes is certainly an investment but I don't regret it. And, since you're already looking at Volume 2 I'm guessing you're on the right track! Go on, buy it!

I ordered this for my neice for Christmas - and fortunately, it arrived by post literally 3 minutes before my sister and neice arrived to visit my father. When I handed it to her, she was absolutely delighted, and, instead of visiting with Dad, she curled up in a comfy chair and began reading it!
