  1. In typical comic book male centric fashion, this series wonders what life would be like if all men died spontaneouslyexcept 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 innovative in the world of comics is pretty much Iron Age for the rest of literature How does Vaughan manage to make a series with gender issues at its center so bizarrely sexist Example In a world where all men a [...]

  2. Yorick Brown is that guy who can t hold down a job Plays with magic.d 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 s, a bunch of Republicans and his brainwashed sister Hero are all wanting a piece of Yorick.Either to kill him or mate him He just wants to find his fiance in Australia.This was a fun book I thought it was going to go very political but quickly became a fun book.

  3. 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 seem to want to offend the post feminist sensibilities of the women, so instead the women tote guns and put their wombs at risk of becoming a zombie buffet But everyone gets along ish, and there are usual [...]

  4. 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.

  5. 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 story has been great so far Every page had me interested in finding out what happens next Also, of all the apocalyptic scenarios I have seen, this is the most creative by far.I am looking forward to volume 2 b [...]

  6. This book is such a neat concept, but there s 4 things I m stuck on.1 it s a book about a world run by women after all the men die, yet it s still told from the POV of a man because conveniently one survives I think I would have loved this if we were given a story of a world with just all women, because heaven knows we could survive without that one man 2 This book was way, way, way, way political than I was expecting it to be The mother of the MC works in Washington so a lot of this concerned [...]

  7. 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

  8. 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 friends enjoy graphic novels as they are called now , so I became curious and asked my friend Kemper for a recommendation Y The Last Man was perfect for me to start with I love post apocalyptic stories and wanted some light, easy reading between school books.A plague that destroys the world [...]

  9. 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 Vaughan s characters Also that he has this noble desire to make it to the other side of the world to reunite with his girlfriend and repopulate the world The story is essentially about all the things getting in his way. [...]

  10. 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 symb [...]

  11. The story started out so well fast paced, intriguingI can see it s a dude comic, the main character ends up being the last man left on a planet full of allll kinds of women No matter what kind of an ugly twat you might wanna be, some woman will want you Yessss I see half naked blonde, beachy style woman, some ex models running around, army women, special op women, scientist women That s ookayyy with me It is a dude comic, after all, no Then came this Yorick main char I m not afraid of the worldI [...]

If you are a woman,You might have to sleep with meSince I m the Last Man on EarthAnd there ain t nothing wrong with meLoudon Wainwright IIIMeet Yorick, an unemployed English major with moderate to poor computer skills He lives on ramen noodles And, oh yeah, his hobby is magic.You probably wouldn t sleep with him if he was thewell, nevermind.There he is, ladies The Last Man on Earth.The dating pool has just gotten a little smaller thanks to a mysterious plague that has wiped out all males, cute p [...]

  13. I ve read so much here and elsewhere about how brilliant this series is, and from the two books I ve read, I m afraid I can t agree The concept plague instantaneously kills all Y chromosome mammals except a guy named Yorick and his pet capuchin monkey around the globe without warning has tremendous promise However, the execution in the two books I read this one and Vol 13 was pedestrian Characterization, plot, and art were all two dimensional By contrast, Judge Parker has nuance in the latter c [...]

  14. This is the first graphic novel I ve read, so far Because after this oneI m hooked Yorick is a young guy, wondering where is his place on this planet He can t find a job, he loves magic and his girlfriend, Beth She travelled to Australia, to be all smart and to gain some experiences in anthropology, so now Yorick is all alone, feeling like a loser, because he s not doing anything remotely as important as she and the rest of his friends do He doesn t even want to go out of his apartment any And j [...]

  15. Ask a comic book geek what the greatest graphic novel of all time was, and at least 9 out of 10 will tell you it s Watchmen And there s no denying Watchmen deserves the accolades it gets, as it quite effectively reinvented the graphic novel genre However, if you asked THIS comic book geek what the greatest graphic novel of all time was, and I would instantly tell you it s Y The Last Man The book starts out with an intriguing premisea mysterious plague instantly kills off every man on the planete [...]

  16. so while i realize that the premise of this book is supposed to be stunning in overturning the stereotypical assumption that women without men will create a feminist lesbian utopia, a la Herland, by proposing that left to their own devices, women would act like a bunch of goomba guys, arm themselves and create civil war, strife, and general mayhem, can any of us really image a scenario in which large groups of women, left without men for extended periods of time, would NOT 1 hug a lot 2 lick eac [...]

  17. A sort of reversal of the film Children of Men , Y the Last Man is sometimes difficult to take seriously The storytelling itself is not bad, though it sometimes falls into the faults of Lost, with endless, predictable hardship It is an interesting concept, and Vaughan at least connects himself tangentially to the literary tradition, but these connections are often too flimsy or too coincidental in construction.The worst crime of all may be that one keeps feeling that Yorick is standing in as an [...]

  19. Ok, so overall I thought this was very intriguing, and I definitely care enough about the story to want to read the next volume However, I did have a few weird issues with some of the content and depiction of certain characters Also, because this came out in 2002, there are some aspects of it that I find, for lack of a better term, politically incorrect, such as using the word retarded as something negative The characters are a bit one note so far, but it is only the first issue From what I ve h [...]

  20. This comic book series has received rave reviews for its rather satirical premise concerning the idea of the extinction of all mammals with the Y chromosome, and how the female population supposedly tries to deal with this global crisis I ve been intrigued by this series for four years now, but put off reading it even after I bought an actual copy about three years ago It s a Vertigo title which immediately guarantees it s promising Finally, I got to read the first volume Unmanned which collecte [...]

  21. Prvo sto bilo koga privuce ovom stripu jeste sama postavka sta ako sve musko umre na ovom svettu, odnosno skoro sve.Pored interesantne ideje ovde imamo i interesantne likove, fine dijaloge sa dovoljno sarkazma i humora kao i naravno odlicne crteze.Sada samo da se nadam da ce objasnjenje za sve ovo biti dobro na kraju a ne neka glupost magic.

  22. Maybe like 3.5 stars, but this was pretty good Yorick is a bit daft, but I have a feeling there s room for growth here It s the end of the world and somehow all the males are dead except for Yorick and his male assistant shoulder monkey , and instead of a zombie apocalypse it s a bunch of raging female extremists who are the enemy There s some political jokes aimed at everyone and a few pop culture references to appreciate I am definitely interested in continuing the series I don t think it is [...]

  23. Now that I ve finished the series well, the first 9 books the 10th is unavailable to me , I ll write a bit about how I feel about the series as a whole.I really wanted to hate this series It is incredibly sexist in so many ways, and I started taking notes on some of the ridiculous aspects of it so I would remember by the time I got around to writing this My husband would find random pieces of paper scattered around the house and ask me what factories stop working, no electricity, internet cafe [...]

  24. All the men are dead.Yorick Brown remains after a mysterious virus eliminates every last thing with a Y chromosome While he s expected to do his part in figuring out why he survived, he s mainly concerned with finding his would be fianc in the outback of Australia.This would be my first experience in reading a graphic novel where the main character isn t flying swinging driving around in spandex For my first foray into the non superhero genre, I probably couldn t have chosen a better series Not [...]

  25. Y for the male chromosome XX is for female One day, suddenly all men die and after that the world goes on without them One major problem is that men are needed for reproduction, so the world seemd to come to a certain dead end.Our hero is a guy who unlike all the other men is still alive, facing many problems I loved this series as I really love other stories by Brian Vaughan and I would definitely read of it

  26. So far so good Volume 1 definitely piqued my interest enough to make me want to read Volume 2 And besides, the last man is HOT What I can t objectify the last man Some notes these are mostly for me to be mindful of as I read the remaining volumes Yorick Yorick s father was a Shakespeare buff and named Yorick and his sister after characters from Shakespeare s plays The name Yorick comes from Hamlet Yorick is the deceased court jester He is represented in the play by a skull, and example of mement [...]

  27. Ok, I thought this would be a comic that portrayed women in a positive way but I was wrong It s the complete opposite The women are OH SO HELPLESS without the men They have no electricity, little food and no proper security Um why not If all the men died tomorrow, us women would definitely be able to manage better than the women in this comic It seems totally illogical to me but I m willing to give it another chance so it can prove me wrong I don t understand why the s even exist but I m hoping [...]
