5.0 out of 5 stars The best volume yet, 2 Sep 2005
By 
S. D. Mcneill "orientfc" (London) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is the best book of the Y The Last Man series yet. The first 4 have been excellent, but this tops them all. It ties up loose ends (why has Yorrick survived the plauge? Who was that ninja he saw in volume 3?) and then leaves you with some new questions, such as: Can Hero be trusted? Can we believe Agent 355? If you've been a half hearted follower so far, this will make you a full on fan.
Anyone who says comics are for kids should read this and realise that they are wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars new twists, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Y: The Last Man, Vol. 5: Ring of Truth: 0 (Kindle Edition)
Great images and the story takes on a new dimension, I like the twists and turns, and the flash backs are a great way to bring past and present into context.

5.0 out of 5 stars Middle, back story & resolutions, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Y: The Last Man, Vol. 5: Ring of Truth: 0 (Kindle Edition)
It's great to see some of the secondary characters getting fleshed out as much as Yorick in this volume, especially Hero's origin story. This volume accelerates the story covering a lot of ground while not losing anything. Also a relief to get some answers and resolutions that have been teased throughout. A very good turning point and mid-section.

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT!!!, 23 July 2013

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series by a great writer, 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Essentially there is not much point in reviewing this particular volume in detail because it is part of an ongoing story and really you need to start reading it from volume one and continue through to the final volume and the end, as you would with a normal novel. For make no mistake, this is a graphic novel, not a volume in an ongoing character series that you might get from Marvel or DC (e.g. the latest compilation of Spider-man or Justice League stories) and really should not stand on its own. That said, the story and art are of exemplary standard throughout this graphic novel series based on the intriguing idea that all men, apart from one, have been wiped out by a strange plague, leaving women in charge. And the "fairer" sex are not necessarily fairer nor gentler than men when it comes to ruling our poor befuddled planet, as any reader of this series will discover. This would have made a great TV series and fans of Buffy should enjoy the sharp characterisation and dialogue - and like Buffy there are moments of great humour and striking horror. Treat yourself and get into Y The Last Man today and see why graphic novels and comics are not just tremendous fun but also thought-provoking works of art.

Enjoying the story but I feel that this was just a filler to stretch out the story I had to read it again with the amount of characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up!, 6 May 2012
After sex must come religion. The first of the three stories is about religion, more specifically the male dominated catholic faith. This is part list of facts and part rant but it is well told through someone Yorick meets on his travels and his desire to confess his sin from the previous volume. It is a good story which asks excellent questions, has warm human emotions and puts Yorick in a difficult position. Everything a story should do.

The next tales are concerned with moving the plot along. We get some new information on the plague, get reunited with someone and have the whole world put in jeopardy. This is pretty much all action and it is in danger of selling out to become a Hollywood blockbuster. Hopefully things will swing back the other way and we will regain some of the emotion and philosophising that Y does so well.

The art is still up to par but doesn't outshine the story. There are some nice instances of showing not telling and the word to art ratio is strongly in favour of the art. Although there are three stories and this is a thick volume it still whizzes by at a thrilling pace. Thumbs Up!
