      (A-) 82% | Very GoodNotes: An addictive, offbeat Odyssean quest built on non-linear narrative, splash reveals and pop culture quips and banter.

      What if all the men, except one young man and his male monkey pet, were wiped out all over the world and nobody knew why exactly? That's the setup for volume one of this series that takes a look at gender issues and progressive science versus a natural order of things. I like that the explanation for the plague is not known and there are several possibilities. There's a fair amount of mischievous style humor in the first volume. For instance, women commemorate the dead man at an obvious phallic [...]

      Wow. This was great. After an outbreak swiftly kills almost all of the mammals on earth with a Y chromosome, an amateur escape artist named Yorick and his pet monkey named Ampersand discover that they are inexplicably the only two males left on earth. Yorick goes on an odyssey to not only learn the truth behind this mysterious phenomenon, but also travel to Australia to find the love of his life, Beth. But it's easier said than done and the concept of being the Last Man On Earth isn't as fun as [...]

      I had heard lots of great stuff about this and the premise sounded interesting. One dude left on the planet after all the other men die of some mysterious disease or something. The artwork is quite good but the dialogue is only so-so and honestly I was a little bored pretty quickly, like by page 3. I was also astounded at the direction the story went, found it heterosexist and homophobic. You'd think a world of mostly women would be pretty frank about lesbians; not this book. The only loud and p [...]

      Bullet Review:Pros: good look at how male-dominated our leadership and other key jobs are, that effing endingCons: straw feminism everywhere, the fact that one male still dominates a woman's storyI love Vaughan, but I doubt I continue. The love-hate relationship!! ACK!!

      I am a comic book junky. Someday when I win the lottery I will buy them all and spread them out over my bed and just roll around on them because I can. I love them. I haven’t encountered many as of yet, but I am slowly branching out. I have read all of The Walking Dead ones, most of The Dark Tower ones and The Sandman. I wants them all. When I have them all I will be like Sméagol. I’ll hide away somewhere where no one can find me, clutching at my comics and referring to them all as my preci [...]

      I read this last year and decided to re-read it because I didn't know how to feel about the ending to Book Five. This is such a fantastic series. It's a clever concept, the characters are so rich and compelling, and the art really works for it! Brian K. Vaughn wasn't someone I read a lot of before this series and this book is what converted me into a fan. Let's start with the concept: all the cis men on the planet have died due to some unknown cause except for Yorick. Yorick and his monkey Amper [...]

      I really loved this. For being 10 issues, this went by quickly. The artwork was great. But what really stands out the most is the plot concept. I've never really read anything like it. And I love that they show that a planet full of women would have their share of problems too. It's not some feminist utopia we are falling into here. I mean, there can't be a feminist utopia, especially if an entire biological sex has died for unknown reasons. The only minor issue I have with this is Yorick, the " [...]

      Introduction: What would happen if you became the last gender (whether you are a male or female) on the face of the planet? Well, that is what we are discovering in Brian K. Vaughan’s Eisner Award winning classic graphic novel, “Y: The Last Man: Book One!” After hearing so many glowing reviews about this graphic novel, I decided to give this book a shot and man, was I blown away by the creative concept of this graphic novel! “Y: The Last Man: Book One” is definitely one of the most dra [...]

      Pardon me while I flail about in fangirl mode, but OMFG and all that is holy, Y: The Last Man is totally a.w.e.s.o.m.e!!!! I didn’t think the graphic novel format would ever win me over entirely, but it’s happened - I’m in love - hook, line, sinker, fully, completely. Not only is this an addictive premise taken to the extreme reaches of the most fertile imagination, it’s brimming with fully fleshed out characters who live and breathe with histories, motives, strengths and vulnerabilities [...]

      This was so good. My graphic novel love affair started and stemmed from my first experience ever with graphic novels, which was with the Saga series, which incidentally happens to be by the same writer as this, Brian Vaughn. The guy is a genius, so totally creative with talent up the wazoo. He's creator of so many popular series'Lost, Ex machina, Saga, and now the first series I've come across to rival SagaThe Last Man.As the story goes, one random morning, amidst all the normal every day happen [...]

      I refuse to read any other reviews on this series before I post this. Therefore, I may sound either stupid or prescient. Or maybe a bit of both. Personally, I am leaning towards stupid, butFriends have been telling me to read this series for quite a bit. They said "you like literary comics, so" or "You're obsessed with end of the world plague sort of stuff that presents humanity in a different light" or "you took women's studies classes in college, so you might find it interesting" Well, to be h [...]

      Having read the first ten issues I'm only about one-fifth into the whole thing, but despite being rather conflicted about it I'll probably continue reading. On the one hand, "Y: The Last Man" is a well-written engaging story with some interesting moments and witty dialogues. On the other, it's sexist to the core. So far, the main villain of the story is an extremist group called s who happen to embody all features of the stereotypical men-hating feminists. Their ultimate goal is to murder the la [...]

      So what can I say? Ever read a book and like the underlying story but are so irritated by the author's views on certain issues that it detracts from the story? I try not to do that. That's why this silly mess of liberal nonsense gets three stars. There IS a cool story underneath the bloviating.In 2002 a virus kills off all the males in the world. Only Yorick Brown and his male pet monkey have survived. A very cool and interesting concept. The rest of the story is spent on his hunt for his ex, hi [...]

    15. Donovan on said:

      While solidly good, Y lacks the magic, humor, and dialog of Brian K. Vaughan's later works. I'll also be an asshole and say I also didn't love the artwork. I know it's over ten years old now, but come on. The Deluxe Edition's paper was practically newsprint and I just wasn't impressed. It's not bad, it's just satisfactory, it's just there. What Y lacks in some areas it makes up for with cheesy humor, violence, action/adventure, and, I have to say, preposterous "what if" appeal. The first page, w [...]

      I'm surprised I liked this one. I thought I was going to hate it after I bought it, but it turned out pretty good. The plot and art was great and will most likely get the next one.

    17. Raeleen Lemay on said:

      I really liked this! And that ending, DAMN. Need to get my hands on the rest of the series right away.

    18. Kaitlin on said:

      I read this as part of the #GettingGraphic readalong I am hosting today and it was definitely a very cool concept. In this story we see all the men on Earth suddenly die out at the same exact time. No male mammals are left alive either. Pretty much everything with a Y chromosome is dead except for out main character and his pet monkey.I have to say I wasn't a big fan of the whiney main character here. He's rather too 'teenage' and headstrong for my liking which meant he gets into some rather sil [...]

    19. James Renner on said:

      Just finished all five books. What a wonderfully plotted story. Some beautiful commentary on the human condition, wrapped around a fantastical story about a world where every man (but one) has died. There were real consequences for characters all the way through, and an honest and fulfilling ending. Well done.

      I’ve had this collection for a while, now, having bought it on a random whim right after my son was born. I have a bit of a soft spot for post-apocalyptic settings, especially disease outbreak scenarios. Maybe it’s my latent hypochondriac tendencies. Further, there seemed to be a lot of places to go with the idea of “the last man on Earth.” Having finished the first ten installments via this deluxe volume, I think I’m still unsure of what I think about it. I definitely enjoyed reading [...]

    22. Bailey on said:

      Reading this in 2017 shines a pretty stark light on the major problems here, especially after having just read Paper Girls and seeing how far BKV has come wrt how to talk about people and culture. I'm glad I read this since people set it as a benchmark (which it probably was in 2002) but I'd definitely caution anyone coming to it now about managing expectations.

      For an unknown reason, all men around the world died, except that is for Yorick and his pet Capuchin monkey. Yorick and Ampersand are the last two surviving male mammals on the face of the Earth. Yorick needs to learn as much as he can about the plague if he wants to save mankind and find his girlfriend on the other side of the world.I've read quite a bit of dystopian, but Vaughan handles this particular "what if" in a unique, inventive, and believable way. His take on the world with approximate [...]

      I'm torn. I want to know what happens, but I'm irked by so much about the first two volumes! 1. Brian K. Vaughan really, REALLY likes the word "retarded." Characters of all backgrounds say "retarded." Multiple times.2. Homophobia and transphobia FOR DAYS.3. Women's bodies still have your standard superheroine babely dimensions. This feels very much like work done by white dudes who grew up in the vocabulary, vernacular and visuals of superhero comics.4. The plot is suspenseful, and I RESENT my u [...]

      Strangely compelling. I have been thinking about reading this series for awhile but really didn't think I would like it. But I gave it a shot & I'm glad I did. I really can't say for sure but I think it's the mystery of why Yorick & his monkey are the only males of any species on earth to survive the plague is what makes it so interesting. Also how much the world changes when all the men are gone is also interesting. Not to mention the artwork is excellent. Unless it takes a big dive in [...]

    27. Caroline on said:

      I really enjoyed this story. I found Yorrick to be kind of obnoxious at times but overall I still quite liked him. All the other characters that he encounters on his journey were really interesting- I loved some and hated some but they were all good and entertaining characters. I'm not in a hurry to continue this series like I am with Saga (the author's other series) but I will definitely read more in the future.

      So I usually read my graphic novels on the weekend and manga during the week (manga is easier to commute to work with), but I had to make an exception! I couldn’t put this down, the characters are ridiculously easy to get attached to and the story just grips you in! I went out and picked up Volume 2 already, this may be the best graphic novel I’ve read this year so far, hoping the other 4 volumes follow suit.
