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:

"With clean lines and muted colors, Guerra and Marz invoke a frighteningly believable future...it's entirely convincing — and addictive." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Fast-paced...lays the groundwork for what promises to be a compelling series." Booklist

Review:

"Its appeal is its fine story, well scripted with dryly humorous touches." Library Journal

He was astray in a society he deeply resentedand#8212;that is, until his brother, Conrad, took him to another planet to retrieve a mysterious substance called aama.

This one is hard to pin down. It's difficult to explain why I was hooked immediately, why I couldn't wait to read what would happen next, why I snuck the final book into work, hid from my boss, and got a little teary-eyed when it was all over. Maybe it's because I'm a guy that would love to wake up into a situation like this. Who knows, but let me tell you: I was giddy throughout. I'm not a giddy person.

I was never a fan of graphic novels, especially about caped tights-wearers. This is the one that showed me that this genre can interest even a dire hard novel reader.

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.

Every time someone says "if only women ran the world," I'll suggest they read this series. Not that the world wouldn't be better run if women were in charge, but if that's the plan there is a hell of a lot of prep work to be done. Only industry that women dominate is agriculture, and what the hell good is that if there is no one to transport it? Or run the power plants? How many female coal miners do you know?

The series doesn't preach, though. It is entertaining as all get out. I am mainly a literary fiction reader, but have found a few treasures in the graphic novel genre (Rabbi's Cat, Sandman series, Deogratias, A Tale of Rwanda, to name a few). This is another gem for my collection.
