Staff Reviews


A pandemic that instantly kills all males of any species has curiously spared Yorick Brown and his pet monkey Ampersand, leaving them the only males in a world populated only with females.  Will he survive the gender politics, medical ethics, the lady biker gangs, the worldwide transportation and government standstill, or even the sheer lack of anyone else with XY chromosomes in this new completely altered world?  This hit series explores the question of what a world without one gender would look like, and has beautiful full color artwork to boot.  If you've never tried a graphic novel before, try this.

Description


"Funny and scary an utterly believable critique of society. A+" THE WASHINGTON POST

"The best graphic novel I've ever read." STEPHEN KING

"This year's best movie is a comic book." ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, NPR

"A seriously funny, nuanced fable.... Grade A." ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Y: THE LAST MAN, winner of three Eisner Awards and one of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling comic books series of the last decade, is that rare example of a page-turner that is at once humorous, socially relevant and endlessly surprising.

Written by Brian K. Vaughan (LOST, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD, EX MACHINA) and with art by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of Yorick Brown the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he's the last man on earth.
