5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 27 Jun 2008
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Decent Start, 27 Jun 2008
When reading a long graphic novel series you have to usually remember that for the most part they get better as they go along. The first volume will lay the groundwork and this will often lead many to say that a comic is boring.

Y The Last Man Vol 1 is good enough to make you want to read the next one but has some serious flaws. For starters women are portrayed as rather one dimensional and Yorick can be a little annoying in his single minded attempt to get to his girlfriend when humanity is obviously in danger. On saying that
I raced through this book and while I did find it annoying in parts it is a good start and I will be picking up Volume 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but not perfect, 31 Aug 2006
What you think of this album depends on how you like your maiden. If you have never ever heard an Iron Maiden album before then I would not recommend starting here. This album is in my opinion a lot "louder" though not "heavier" The band wanted to create an album that sounded as though it was recorded live and they have achived this but this makes it hard to listen to in some parts which is a tragic shame as this has some gobsmacking songs. These colours don't run is simply fantastic as is "The Longest Day" and "Different World" and to be fair these songs make the album worth it and also to be fair the rest of the album is very good but I feel that you buy concert CDs for a reason. Still if you like the "live sound" you will love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Resistence is futile!!!, 11 Jun 2003
If you read Amazon.com and the reviews that are on there then the chances are you think that this book is not very good. In truth this is highly enjoyable with slight flaws. First up then the gripes. The relationship between Seven and Chokoaty is not delt with well although it is obvious that it will be dealt with in part 2. I really cant argue with those that wish Voyager had been allowed to return with a little more triumph. On the plus side it is very good to finally get some closure on what happens to the crew and the book it's self is very well written indeed. There were no boring parts in this book at all, indeed I truly did sail through this book in 3 days.
This review in a way is pointless as any voyager fan must own this book if they want to know what happens next after the ultra annoying ending to the show.
