The Weight of Water

Yorick has some odd travel arrangements. Getting to dress up like a woman, wearing gas masks or odd costumes, putting himself through hell simply to hide that he isn't the thing once known as "man." but taking a trip in a box on a ship is one thing, and finding out that your bodyguard and your pet doctor are having relations is another. For yorick this seems to be a bad thing, too, because 355 and yorick have something that ties them together. Or at least they did, until they found themselves on a frieghter that has one secret out in the open and another riding just below the surface. Y has been a great read from the beginning, and this is no exception. yorick seems to always get himself into situations he can't handle alone, and he has to figure out exactly what is right or wrong in this new world ran by women. In this trip it is especially bad, because Y finds himself on a ship with a very attractive woman, and finds that they relate on more than one level. The only problem is that the person is not what she appears to be and neither is the ship, and Australia is one of the few places that has been keeping a navy in place to deal with things they deem threats. This is what i like about Y: it has art that is easy on the eyes, stories that make you wonder what you would do in this situation, and times when one wishes they cared about nothing beyond themselves. Y has already found out his sister would rather see him dead than still walking around, he has no idea what has happened to the woman he loves, and has seen how many countries would like to have a man to repopulate their dying flags. He is more valuable than he knows, and now he is running with something that is seen - in the eyes of something powerful at least - as worth less than a torpedo. What a great thing to read. If you haven't gotten on the Y bandwagon yet, go to the first volume and start from there. Something has killed all the men in the world except for the one we know about, and that one has been through a lot in the last few books. The world has also changed and those changes are interesting - enough so that reading the books seems to take less effort than a reader would ever realize. Couple that with the fact that there is one other male, a little monkey that lived through it, and you can see why you have to find out things from the start. It is a good read and one that is not the world of the last man on Earth's dreams. I highly recommend it.

One of the greatest stories in comics

I was turned on to Y The Last Man at work when I saw someone with the comic. I asked him what it was about and he told me. Being a fan of post-apocolyptica, I asked if it was any good. He looked straight into my eyes and said, "I don't read crap, man." If you looked at the guy, a stereotypical comic book/gaming nerd, you could tell he knew his stuff. I went home and bought all the available graphic novels, 6 at the time. I have no regrets. I have since lent these novels to about a dozen people and they all loved it. This comic perfectly blends action, comedy, sci-fi, romance, and drama together to create a world where women rule.

Pirates and Mystics

Ah, yes, the sexist military policies of the past centuries have placed the world in a precarious position now that 2+ years of passed since the plague that wiped out 99.99% of the male population. We saw this earlier in some of the previous books but in this collected set of 5 of the series comics we see in on the oceans as Yorick, 355, and Dr. Mann take what they think is a cruise ship to Japan in the hopes of finding Ampersand. They never make it there as the ship they are on is attacked by the Australians out of what they claim is self-defense. Don't get too excite by the cover or the title -- yest there is some lesbian content but as we keep learning, Yorick had an extra helping of sexual conservatism than we might expect from a well-educated family and he reacts poorly when 355 and Dr. Mann seek solace in each other arms. The final comic in the book fills in a big gap about has happened to Beth in Australia and how she and Yorick's relationship worked as she falls into the hands of Aborigines still practicing their traditional beliefs.

better and better

the first volume of Y hooked me and each book gets better and better. i don't know how Vaughan does it. if you're a fan of his other work (Runaways), you'll probably dig this, his more-adult fare.

Arrrggg, Matey!

I've pretty much read through all the Y: The Last Man books in one sitting. I tore through this as well. The good parts of this is you see Yorick going through some doubts on seeing how the world works now with the line blurring between who are the good and bad. Also, the tension between 355 and the doctor come to a head; not that you can't see it coming, but I literally yelled outloud, "FINALLY!" The sub-story of Beth was fantastic. It goes into the relationship between Yorick and Beth; how they met, how they got along, how she got along with Hero, some background on Beth; it was more or less a vision quest. Yorick's been going on faith that Beth is alive half a world away, this was Beth's test of faith. Overall a good read. I just recently heard that the series is going up to #60 issues. I'm sure it's going to be gripping and the art is going to continue to be great all the way through. -B
