    The Last Man series continues to entertain! I don’t really think my review of this one will differ much from my previous reviews because I feel pretty much the same. So, pardon any repetition!

    If you are a post-apocalyptic fan, this series is right up your alley. I just checked back through my other reviews of this series, and while, for me, there have been a couple of issues that were not quite as strong along the way, it has generally been a win!

    I continue to enjoy the artwork, and, as I like

    If you are a post-apocalyptic fan, this series is right up your alley. I just checked back through my other reviews of this series, and while, for me, there have been a couple of issues that were not quite as strong along the way, it has generally been a win!

    I continue to enjoy the artwork, and, as I like to mention with any series that does this, it has remained the same artist throughout. This fact appeals to me greatly when it comes to graphic novels and I am much more likely to start a series if I look at the final volume and see all the same names on the cover as the first volume. I like how the art has kind of a classic comic book feel!

    Basically – you like post-apocalyptic and you like comic books? 100% guarantee you will dig this!

    Also, I like the alternate covers they have throughout the collected volume. I don’t think I would like the entire volume in this style, but for a little side journey at the issue break, it is pretty cool!

    4 stars. This one brought tears to my eyes twice. I hope it continues on its upward streak. The past volumes had begun to get a bit tedious and one-note.

    In this volume:

    --The group makes a short detour to Australia before heading to Japan. Yorick hopes he can find Beth#1 before they head out to Japan in search of Ampersand. While in Australia, Yorick encounters a journalist who's on a mission to find proof of men-sightings. This could spell disaster for Yorick if the rest of the world becomes

    --The group makes a short detour to Australia before heading to Japan. Yorick hopes he can find Beth#1 before they head out to Japan in search of Ampersand. While in Australia, Yorick encounters a journalist who's on a mission to find proof of men-sightings. This could spell disaster for Yorick if the rest of the world becomes aware of his existance.

    --We learn how 355 came to be an agent of the Culper Ring and also an insight into her tragic childhood. This was the first shed of tears for the volume.

    --Dr. Mann and Rose get closer but is she really one of the good guys?

    --The Israeli woman Tse'Elon comes back to handle matters with Yorick's mom.

    --Hero delivers a letter to Beth#2 that Yorick had written prior to him leaving overseas. She makes a shocking discovery when she meets Beth#2. After Hero saves Beth#2 from a nun and her crew, Hero asks Beth to join her on a road trip to make another delivery to the two twin scientists who were last left to care for the pregnant astronaut.

    --Love the drawing of 355 as a child. The art is always superb. I love the story of how 355 came to wear her blazer. This scene made 355's loss of her dad even more poignant. There's also some background story to 355's mentor that leads into another arc where the group is about to be attacked by some cannibal women.

    --Second instance of tear shedding: We finally see Ampersand again. There's a glimpse into Ampersand's life pre-Yorick where he was a victim of some cruel lab experiments. It was a little confusing what excatly Ampersand had to do with Dr. Mann and Yorick before he even met them but hopefully this will all clear up in the next volumes. Poor Ampersand is also a victim of animal cruelty by his kidnapper Toyota. I have fallen in love with Ampersand and I was angry and sad to see what the poor monkey had to endure. Last we see him out at sea inside a seagull's nest or fleeing from his tormentor away from the ship and into the bustling port of Japan. It's not quite clear.

    I am ready for the next volumes. I have a feeling these are going to get better and better from this point on.

    Somebody once told me the world was gonna roll me,

    Y ain't the sharpest tool in the shed.

    He was looking kind of dumb, with a finger and a thumb,

    and a monkey sitting on his forehead.

    Well, the plot's still running and it ain't gonna stoppin'

    The fed's gonna know that a lone agent is nothing.

    So much to do, so much to see,

    So what's wrong with taking the detour?

    You'll never know if you don't go (down under)

    You'' never find your fiancee Beth,

    Hey know, it's a Yorick!

    He's the last man! Go play!!

    In Australia and in deep paper this time.

    Damn reporters. Who knew that tabloids could be so much like skin rags?

    Oh, wait, that would be everyone. Never mind!

    The world-building in this one is pretty sweet, even if we don't get to stay too long in the present. 355's past gets a lot more page time, though, and I can't say I'm disappointed. :)

    This is getting to be like watching Lost or some action movie--intriguing set up, but as it is drawn out you start noticing where sex scenes and weirdness try to cover up the fact that the story is meandering, like maybe the author don't know quite where he be going. Or, maybe I'm wrong and it is meant to be "sexy" or something.

    Anyway, I know food is short and all, but hunger doesn't turn every woman into a Barbie Doll with an impossibly thin waist, big boobs, and the like. I don't think it is

    Anyway, I know food is short and all, but hunger doesn't turn every woman into a Barbie Doll with an impossibly thin waist, big boobs, and the like. I don't think it is too much to ask for a little realism in our comic books. Comic people want it both ways sometimes: they want their art, stories to be taken seriously as literature with something to say about our lives, societies, and worlds, but they create characters that do not resemble people in the real world, forgetting that most people don't fit the beauty ideal they draw on.

    Yorick finally makes it to Australia! While Dr. Mann and 355 agree to let Yorick take a look for his long lost girlfriend Beth, they encounter more trouble than expected.

    This volume seemed more like a something Vaughn used to tie up loose ends. It felt as if almost nothing progressed here. We're met with two back stories that while interesting, failed to really alter the story in any way. That being said, it's not really all that bad, just not as great as the series has been.

    Books 6 and 7

    Books 6 and 7 didn't really leave as large of an impression on me as the earlier installments. I'm hoping that Vaughn has a plan here; that the series doesn't become a jumbled mess. I have 3 more entries to go and I have pretty high expectations! C'mon Vaughn, don't let me down!

    Yorick stops in Australia; hi-jinx ensue. I guess it's nice to see a story about the possibility of Yorick being outed, but there's overall not a lot of bite to this story, other than the nice opportunity to continue Beth's story [6/10].

    This one-off about Beth II actually has some depth to it,

    This one-off about Beth II actually has some depth to it, since we've come to care about both her and Hero. The church-related satire doesn't quite work, but the interactions between the two women are interesting [6+/10].

    The backstory for 355. There's nothing particularly surprising here, but it's nice to learn a bit of her history [6/10].

    The backstory for Ampersand. There's one interesting reveal and one plot point, which makes it pretty decent [6/10].

    The lack of a solid story arc in this volume makes it a slow slog. However, it is apparent that some of the loose ends and other issues that Vaughan left hanging are slowly being pulled together for the stretch run into the conclusion of the series. This gets two stars for having "middle volume" syndrome. It gets boring at times but still has promise.

    It is great to be able to read the entire series after it has concluded. This is an addictive story, because Vaughan succeeds in setting up an

This gets two stars for having "middle volume" syndrome. It gets boring at times but still has promise.

    It is great to be able to read the entire series after it has concluded. This is an addictive story, because Vaughan succeeds in setting up an intriguing premise and taking us along for the long ride to see how it all ends. This volume is slightly disappointing in its pace, but all the right characters are being positioned, whether it is physically or emotionally. Hopefully Vaughan has more good stories coming up.

    Yorick has grown up since the first stories, but he remains unfocused and confused. Every hero needs a mission, an inspiration; its tough to see where Yorick is supposed to get his from.

    The art is top quality, as usual from the Vertigo imprint. But it seems the original artist, Pia Guerra can't keep up and the creative team is bringing in one guest artist after the other. It gets annoying after a while but the story is still well told.
