5.0 out of 5 stars A great series by a great writer, 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Y The Last Man Vol 5 "Ring of Truth": 0 (Paperback)
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.
