Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a plague of unknown origin instantly kills every mammal with a Y chromosome, unemployed and unmotivated slacker Yorick Brown suddenly discovers that he is the only male left in a world inhabited solely by women. Accompanied by his mischievous monkey and the mysterious Agent 355, Yorick embarks on a transcontinental journey to find his girlfriend and discover why he is the last man on Earth. But with a gang of feminist extremists and the leader of the Israel Defense Forces hunting him, Yorick's future, as well as that of the human race, may be short-lived.

Review:

"The artwork in this apocalyptic variation on The Fugitive remains pedestrian; though by avoiding panoramas and spectacle, it makes this a story about people rather than lurid action." Booklist

Review:

"[A] sense of realism brings accessibility, and it is enhanced by subtle artwork that focuses on the physical and emotional reactions of the characters....[T]he focus on character is the true strength of the book." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

After a mysterious plague kills every living being with a Y chromosome, escape artist Yorick Brown inexplicably became the last man on Earth. In the second volume of this riveting series, the far-reaching ramifications of the loss of half the world's population are further examined as Yorick, joined by an enigmatic government special agent and a cloning bioengineer, embarks on a cross-country trip to solve the mystery behind his survival. But when the violent Daughters of the Amazons trap the trio in a town inhabited solely by female prison inmates, mankind's last hope may be lost forever.

Synopsis:

The second story arc of the runaway hit Vertigo series Y: The Last Man is collected in this new trade paperback! Reprinting issues #6-10, Cycles features a special sketchbook section by artist and cocreator Pia Guerra. As Yorick Brown, the last man on Earth, begins to make his way across the country to California, he and his companions are forced to make an unscheduled stop in Marrisville, Ohio — a small town with a big secret.

This is a truly excellent sf series. What would happen if every man on earth, save one, died suddenly? Yorick and his monkey Ampersand are the only male creatures left on Earth, and must travel from Boston to California in the company of Dr. Mann (an expert in cloning) and the enigmatic Agent 355. Problem is, everyone wants a piece of Yorick -- sometimes literally.
