(aka bashing :D) [ok, so it's blurry but you get the point] Although the very first page made me cry in despair all over again [Yorick is trying to convince a woman to let him board the train to get out of Boston, but her reply is: With the shipping routes as fucked up as they are, the whole east coast's just about of supplies] because I simply disapprove of how the world is suddenly in so much chaos now that men are gone. Now, I'm not trying to say their contribution to the world was useless or easily replaceable - not at all - I'm trying to say they can be replaced in most of the jobs they were doing (just like women could be too). Now, let's imagine all women died. More or less 50% of the population would be gone. There would be no way to repopulate the planet, yes, but you know what problem would be solved? Unemployment. My aggravation kept growing as the Amazon's leader, Victoria, babbles on about how as long as one man is still alive on this planet, we have no choice but to play by their rules. They manage to obtain information about this Last Man's whereabouts and all pack up and go after him! *sigh* the world's infrastructure is in ruins, there's no food production (let alone less important things such as electricity, water supply and similar). I don't know, but if I was the leader of a pack of a women, I'd search for ways for our community to survive by finding ways to get the food industry back up running instead of chasing around for this one man who's very likely to get killed or captured by someone else. Given the bad mood of most women we met so far in this comic, I'd say, the chances are preeeety high. Some cool art again: I loved this volume a lot better than the previous one. The turn in the story where 355 doesn't go through the jump off the train as smoothly as others and when they stumble upon this self-sufficient town of Marrisville was refreshing! I thought "finally!," I might have rushed with my conclusions... then... then Yorick delives this speech about how he's devoted to his girlfriend Beth was the first girl I ever slept with, you know? She was the only woman alive who wanted me back when I was just an unemployed loser. If nothing else, I think I owe her a little loyalty. riiiight before he kisses Sonia. Man, don't go all fucking Dark Knight Rises on me [Batnoob whines to Alfred how he cannot move on, Rachel is gone! Then some chick with a foreign accent taps dat and he's all "Rachel, who?"] Then, Sonia, right after she has finally lured him into a kiss, breaks free and goes all come clean, about how she was a junkie and how the whole town was actually released from a nearby women's prison. Yorick rages, runs to the house! and goes: You fucking criminals, you all! to a bunch of women who took his wounded, dirty ass in and slaughtered one of the cows (who cannot reproduce anymore) for the guest. Yorick: they still owe a debt to society, don't they? I mean, why the hell should they get to live in paradise? and here he goes AGAINNN! man, I can't take this :'D Okay, :'D *wiping tears* as I said, I'm giving this one three stars. The story is still quite fast, actiony, and this issue managed to scrape the surface of the what would be a possible solution for women to do while they wait for the last generation to die out. It kept my attention just enough for me to want to read the next issue too (a part of me just wants to laugh on about all the silly shit the characters say like this pearl here - Sonia: You haven't seen us during our periods. All of our cycles are in synch, so once a month, this town turns into a bloody whirlpool of bitchiness.)

    The second collected edition of Y: The Last Man comic continues where the unique storyline left off. It is humorous, thought-provoking, crass, and controversial - but all of it in just the right amounts! I was a bit more invested in this one than the first because the story is now familiar to me - I often find this to be the case with graphic novel series. Now, I can't wait to see where it goes next!

    MAYBE I'm just spoiled by a glut of really great comics over the years, but while Y: The Last Man is still solid as hell, it's not quite rocking my boat yet. It's still slightly edgy, but I've read lots of comics that cursed and had nudity. That's not what makes a great story. A great story makes a great story.

All the later great comics, such as Saga, written by the same guy, had to have come from SOMEWHERE. :) We shall see. Goodbye, paradise, hello spaceboys. :)

    You know, I think that I would enjoy this series more if it weren't so full of straw feminists. The idea of the Amazons is at least conceptually sound. Given what a horribly traumatic thing the plague must have been to live through, I can see a certain number of women going around the bend in this exact way. But the execution just comes off as feminist bashing, especially since the only good women in the series so far are the ones willing to revolve their lives around the one remaining man.

I don't think at all that this is what Vaughan intended, but that's how I ended up reading it. It's a shame, because the characters are mostly interesting, but I don't think I'm enjoying this series enough to continue.

    I think I have two problems with this story so far that prevent me from loving it. The first is that I'm not that attached to Yorick; I get that he's meant to be an "everyman," but I'm much more interested in the women around him. I want to know what happened to Hero that led to her becoming an Amazon and believing so strongly in what they had to preach. I want to know more about Agent 355 and Dr. Mann (I loved hearing a bit about their back story).

I want to know more about Agent 355 and Dr. Mann (I loved hearing a bit about their back story). Honestly, some of my favorite parts of the comic are when someone tells Yorick to sit down and shut up. I don't even hate the guy, I just find it amusing to see his ego get deflated. My second problem is that even though most of the characters are women, I feel like I'm constantly reminded the author is a guy. There are the period jokes, like how all the women in Marrisville get their periods at the same time and the town becomes "a bloody whirlpool of bitchiness." The Amazons are over the top in their man-hating, especially since it just doesn't seem worth it when there's only one man left. Sofia basically existed as nothing more than a love interest in this issue - and of course she and Yorick make out, right after Yorick talks about how loyal he feels to his girlfriend Beth. Also, apparently 355 likes Yorick now?? Please don't let this become a comic where all the ladies fall in love with Yorick and his magical penis :/

    While not as good as volume 1, this was still entertaining. There's more world-building and Yorick's sister is in this one more. I hope the story gets more complicated, though. So far, it's pretty much just everybody wants to kill Yorick. Yorick is a little meh. Hopefully, his personality grows in the future. It was still a quick read and I am interested in finding out what happens next.

The subtitle of book two is “Cycles,” and cycles can refer to many different things: motorcycles, the cycles of birth, growth and death, cycles of seasons, menstrual cycles. I wonder, in a world full of women, do they all get their period at the same time? Because these things have a tendency to synch up. Some observations: - Yorick may be handsome, but he’s kind of stupid. - As if it needs to be pointed out, the Amazon leader is Crazy. “You knew he was a monster the moment you saw that hideous appendage… His growth used the same hole to discharge waste AND seed!” Wow, lady. You have issues. - I’m enjoying this series so far, but I have to say, the language is a little hokey in parts. Por example, “Because once you make it past the scales and the blindfold… Justice is a woman with a sword!” Yeah. That’s deep. (Although Dr. Mann’s retort was pretty funny, “Jesus Christ, we’re in John Ashcroft’s hell!). - Who and what are the FTRA? Hmmm… I suppose I’ll have to keep reading to find out. Bring on the third arc, "One Small Step." Hmmm, if those (view spoiler)[guys in the space suits at the end of book two (hide spoiler)] are any indication, Yorick might not be "The Last Man" after all.

    and there it is, the built up, the tempo, the charisma of brian k. vaughan. From the slow built up in volume one, the series has taken a sharp turn with action, suspense and page turning drama!

    There's quite a few reviewers offended by these volumes, the way the women are portrayed isn't exactly flattering, the amazons are an awful group very stereotypical men haters, the first decent group of women we find in this volume turn out to be criminals, or junkies and it just gets a bit tedious that all the women are kinda dicks, even mann and 355 you're very wary of them, like we don't know much about their pasts yet.

So many are offended, and i get that however you should have stopped reading by volume 1, and also if all the women just grouped together and saved the world instantly it would be a quick read, so if you can't accept the basic premise of the plot then don't pick this up, you're gonna hate it! However i still love this, i find yorick hilarious still and lil ampersand is just too cute. His relationship with sonia is a bit forced though and up to that point i respected yorick and his quest to find his girlfriend and he wasn't hanging around to repopulate the world but then not two seconds later he's making out with a crack head. In all disaster movies/books there's always gotta be that one asshole group who just want to fuck shit up, and their ultimate goal doesn't make any bloody sense and in this it's the amazons, who will get on your very last nerve. But i kinda like how all these women were like should we try and keep the city running, go to work? there's no food or electricity, instead they were like fuck it, let's go out murdering and stealing shit, all the women are pretty hardcore, that's way better than them trying to rebuild civilisation and some people are kinda missing that and wanting some serious story about how women would run the world as normal give or take fifteen minutes or so. I still love it, just binge reading my way through these, i totally get why people would hate it, i doubt it would grow on you cause each volume the shit that goes down gets progressively more insane but if you liked the first volume this is just as good!

    This series is shaping up to be one of my all time favorites. When we last left Yorick, he was trying to travel across the United States with the help of Agent 355 and Dr. Mann. This is especially difficult when most roadways are blocked with abandoned vehicles and other large obstacles. Therefore, the best route of travel? Train. The trip is interrupted quickly when attacked by a gang of women separate from the Amazons. Once again, their journey is thrown into disarray.

The trip is interrupted quickly when attacked by a gang of women separate from the Amazons. Once again, their journey is thrown into disarray. To go any further in the plot description would throw some major spoilerific elements your way, so I'll stop right here. Going back to that opening sentence of mine - I really hated putting that in there. I mean, I've only just finished the 2nd book (of ten)! However, I honestly feel that way. In the second collection, we are given a whole hell of a lot of character development and story progression. Not only are we witness to several high anxiety confrontations but A LOT of revelations as well. All of these characters stay interesting especially considering Brian K. Vaughn just keeps throwing more people at us. You never get that feeling that Vaughn is trying to stretch the story out in a way that's not needed - length for the sake of it. It probably goes without saying, but the artwork is fantastic. It plays out like watching a great action movie. Pia Guerra does an excellent job displaying Vaughn's vision with quick cutting and suspense building images. I have high hopes for the remainder of this series. The only problem in getting these from my local library is waiting until the next one is available. Probably should've done the smart thing and taken them out all at once.

    This volume is really heavy on the Amazons, which is unfortunate, because in my opinion, the Amazons are to real feminists what blackface performers are to actual black people. The Amazons are the authors' completely un-subtle representations of everything that people (especially men, but even some women) fear about feminists: They want to castrate men (and not always figuratively)! They want to rule the world! They hate childrearing, domesticity, common decency, and basic morals! Aahhhhh! Hide This volume is really heavy on the Amazons, which is unfortunate, because in my opinion, the Amazons are to real feminists what blackface performers are to actual black people. The Amazons are the authors' completely un-subtle representations of everything that people (especially men, but even some women) fear about feminists: They want to castrate men (and not always figuratively)! They want to rule the world! They hate childrearing, domesticity, common decency, and basic morals! Aahhhhh! Hide your children! In the mouths of these Amazons, words like "patriarchy" and "oppressors" sound laughable, even ridiculous. The Amazons are basically an over-the-top mockery of everything that feminists supposedly stand for. Yorick, the main character and only surviving male in this post-apocalyptic world, claims to be as liberal as they come, but he hates the Amazons with a fiery and unexplained passion (even before they started trying to kill him). Also confusing are Yorick's many macho comments about women, including the following: "Made me wonder if this whole thing happened for a reason. 'And the meek shall inherit the earth,' and all that..." He says this, by the way, to the woman who has been saving his ass throughout the entire series. Whenever someone calls out Yorick on his condescending attitude towards women, he always says something like, "Oh, you know what I mean." That's just it, though - I don't. Is Yorick actually a conservative blowhard masquerading as a liberal because it's "cool"? Do the authors think they're making him a liberal character but just getting it horribly wrong? At one point, another character calls Yorick a sanctimonious brat, and I couldn't agree more. He's a petulant, rash, and arrogant child, and unless he grows up fast, I'm going to lose interest in what happens to him. I find it incredibly frustrating that in a world where virtually all the men have died, the most interesting story that the authors could come up with was having all the women in the world chasing after/protecting/wanting to mate with/wanting to kill the last surviving male. Rather than challenging the status quo, this series seems to be reinforcing men's self-importance and power -- after all, despite a female/male ratio of 3 billion to 1 (and despite being surrounded by people who are much stronger and wiser than him), Yorick still seems to think that everything is naturally going to go his way. Rather than accommodating them, Yorick expects every woman he meets to accommodate him, and really, isn't that less "speculative fiction" and more "real life"? And having the Sonia woman develop an insta-crush on Yorick is just silly. I'm beginning to think that this series is nothing more than an extensively thought-out description of a masculine power fantasy. I have two other minor complaints. One: The Israeli side story is very boring and seems completely irrelevant at this point. I'm sure all will be explained later, but really, do I want to wait for it? I'm sure it's some conspiracy having to do with some kind of arcane object, yadda yadda yadda. Can we just cut to the chase? Number two: Yorick being an escape artist and owning a monkey are also completely irrelevant at this point. This hobby and pet of his just seem like a quick and dirty way for the authors to give him a personality, but it's not enough, since neither factor ever plays a significant role in any of the action. I'm sure that his escaping skills and/or his monkey will save his life at some point, but right now, it just seems like a transparent ploy to make him seem interesting or exotic.

    If there were only one man left alive, all the powerful political factions would fight over him and chase him to all ends of the globe and desire to possess him. Ok, yes it's possible. Does anyone else think it's a little male-centered? And on that note, this whole series is in a world largely of women now, and all the authors can do is follow around one cissexual male who is the central figure in a drama with all the women orbiting around him.

And the battle of the sexes is on more intensely than ever. Yep, it seems a little silly in a story whose premise is that almost everyone with a y chromosome has passed away. But still there's constant banter about men vs. women. And the feminazi Amazons are out to get all men. So it's kind of interesting to turn the whole issue of female safety around and look at a situation where a man is constantly on thin ice safety-wise just because he's a man. Yorick remains just as self-important and self-empowered as ever, though, which is not analogous and makes me less impressed with the let's-make-an-interesting-social-point thing.

    If you want to read this graphic novel, then you probably already read the first book of this series. You haven't??! What the hell are you doing here then, read the first one! This one was interesting just as the first one. And can I just say how much I like the illustrations (is this the right expression for comics?) The penciller, colorist and inker are really talented…and the writer also, of course. I was surprised when I saw how the relationship between Yorick and Hero changed.

    As I mentioned after reading Unmanned, I gave volume two of this series a go to make sure I wasn't missing anything about it. It didn't really improve, so I feel okay in not going any further into the story. There's a very interesting premise here, which is different enough from the other "Last Man on Earth" stories I've read to pique my interest, but the final product is a bit too juvenile and ridiculous to keep it. In this volume, Yorick has made it a bit further into his journeys, accompanied As I mentioned after reading Unmanned, I gave volume two of this series a go to make sure I wasn't missing anything about it. It didn't really improve, so I feel okay in not going any further into the story. There's a very interesting premise here, which is different enough from the other "Last Man on Earth" stories I've read to pique my interest, but the final product is a bit too juvenile and ridiculous to keep it. In this volume, Yorick has made it a bit further into his journeys, accompanied by a doctor and a government agent, and he stumbles across a town that seems to be doing very well for itself. They have power and water, and even a hydroponic garden, and when he and the agent need some medical assistance, that's where they wind up. The Amazons (including Yorick's sister, Hope) catch up with them and a showdown takes place, and that's really the main plot of this particular story arc. It's okay, but nothing special. What really bothers me about it, though, is the blasé attitude that the author seems to take to portraying the women. through themselves and through Yorick. Yorick has a bad habit of referring to them as "ladies," and at one point is pretty surprised that they managed to figure out how to get the electricity running. The Amazons are a summation of every man-hating cliché you've ever heard, wrapped up in a bunch of violence and anti-male dogma. At one point, the leader of the Amazons expresses regret over the use of violence, but then states that "so long as one of those men runs free, it's what we have to do," or some such nonsense. It's a bit stupid and ridiculous. Add to the mix a bit of an "I'm the last man on Earth, so every woman must want me" vibe, and it gets almost offensive. In the hands of a better writer, I think the premise could have held up to the promise and expectations I had for the series. As it is, though, it's hard to stay interested in the series. (view spoiler)[Now that I've read that the cause of the deaths is never really explained, there's not much left here to make me want to read any more of it. (hide spoiler)]

    ***Buddyread with the Shallow Readers! Criteria: Women seeking last man and monkey a few weeks late*** It's been two months since I read Unmanned. So going into this was weird at first. I obviously remembered the main premise and the most of the main players. But waiting that long is something I shouldn't do again. Anywho. This was awesome once I remembered everything that was going on. Yorick is still a stand up fucking guy, thank god.

This was awesome once I remembered everything that was going on. Yorick is still a stand up fucking guy, thank god. As the last man on Earth (as far as we know) he's still not acting like a douche nugget. 355 and the Doc are still traveling with him, making their way across country to get to the lab in California. And OF COURSE the cute diapered monkey Ampersand is still riding shotgun on all of the crazy adventures. So what happens in this volume? They are attacked by a different organization that sets themselves apart from the Amazons. Instead of cutting off one boob they're out to wreak as much havoc as possible. After the attack they end up in some tiny town in Ohio. The catch: They're all former inmates of a local prison who were only released so they wouldn't literally rot in jail and starve to death. But it's all okay. Because they're polite, helpful, believe in no violence, and simply want to be left alone. But the world has other plans in mind when Hero, Yorick's sister, shows up with her sister Amazons to take Yorick away and kill him for having a penis. And thus, chaos ensues. But I won't spoil the fun details. We end with Yorick once again setting out for California, where he gushes over his girlfriend who I guessed early on didn't actually want to be with him anymore. But what choice does she have now!!!! I loved this. And I seriously hope I continue to love it.

    Enjoyed this even more than the first. The series has a lot of Vaughan's trademark humour, whilst also offering different and interesting perspectives on what would happen if all men died (except one) and women inherited the earth. Though there are plenty of crazies in this post-men era, the story and themes are ultimately very feminist.

    Maybe I'm getting too critical with the books I'm reading but this series isn't very believable. I mean honestly, if this did happen, would everyone be out to kill the last guy on earth? Wouldn't he be extremely special in the hope of keeping humanity alive? These "amazon" women who apparently hate men are trying to end "male oppression" by killing the last remaining man on earth. And what is up with his sister being brainwashed to kill him? It just doesn't make sense.

These "amazon" women who apparently hate men are trying to end "male oppression" by killing the last remaining man on earth. And what is up with his sister being brainwashed to kill him? It just doesn't make sense. I kept thinking, "don't they know that once they kill the last man on earth they are ending humanity?" It just seems like everything that's happening in this story isn't very accurate. At least in the Expanse series I could see how we could colonize space and the science behind everything seemed believable. The only reason I'm finishing this series is because I have them all from the library.

    I read this for my December 2017 TBR pick: “Read a graphic novel”. This was an amazing sequel and I can’t wait to read the next one! This story just keeps getting better and better. I was really impressed!

    Story Things took a few turns in this volume that I didn't see coming. I was glad to get some explanation about some things, but overall I left with more questions than answers. I'm more invested in the series than I was after the first one. Artwork The artwork continues to be solid. I still don't like it as much as Saga, but it's still up there.

    Maybe it's because I knew what kind of tone and writing to expect, but I liked this better than the first volume. It's still falling short of the mark I think to make a meaningful commentary about gender, but it might be getting there? IDK. I'll see if I borrow volume three from the library
