Y: The Last Man, Vol. 1: Unmanned

"Y" is none other than unemployed escape artist Yorick Brown (his father was a Shakespeare buff), and he's seemingly the only male human left alive after a mysterious plague kills all Y-chromosome carriers on earth. But why are he and his faithful companion, the often testy male monkey Ampersand, still alive? He sets out to find the answer (and his girlfriend), while runni...

    Ok so maybe it's just me but I found this series to be incredibly chauvinist. I know I'm gonna get flamed for it, so many ppl rave about it. I APPRECIATED IT but the premise and execution and what the women were doing, boy oh boy. I'm gonna shut up and not review this. Check box'd. ...

    I haven’t read a comic book since I was a child, saving my measly allowance for Archie and his friends. Once I discovered my mother’s Harold Robbins novels, I never went back to comics…until now.A number of my Goodreads friends enjoy graphic novels (as they are called now), so I becam...

    In typical comic book male-centric fashion, this series wonders what life would be like if all men died spontaneously...except for one. I suppose if we're trying to put ourselves in the head of an early-nineties comic book reading teen, this might feel innovative. Unfortunately, I find that innovati...

    So there's this thing that happens in post-apocalypse stories that I need to talk to you about. You know how in a zombiepocalypse story we occassionally receive hints that it might be better for the women to stay safe so they can make babies? Usually it's only hints, and the male characters don't se...

    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 fo...

No matter what kind of an ugly twat you might wanna be, some woman will want you. Yessss!I see half-naked blonde, beachy-st...

    Well, I get why everyone LOOOVES this book but some of it just rubbed me the wrong way. Like I don't understand why the entire world just stops functioning completely. Are there no female engineers or scientists or electricians in the entirety of the world? ...

    Yorick Brown is that guy who can't hold down a job. Plays with magic..and he is the last man on earth. Something has killed off everything male on the planet. He and his pet monkey are all that's left. Now gangs of women called the Amazons, a bunch of Republicans and his brainwashed sister Hero are...

    Y: The Last Man has a great premise -- all males (of every species) suddenly die -- except one. The story focuses on the lone male survivor and is an unraveling of why / how he survived the mysterious scourge.It helps that the last man standing is humorous and likable like so many of Brian K. Vaugha...

    I discovered this series randomly while looking through graphic novels on Hoopla. I had never heard of it before but recognized the author. The premise sounded interesting (view spoiler)[something kills all but one man on the planet (hide spoiler)] so I decided to give it a go. I am glad I did! The ...
