Y: The Last Man

I’ve been holding these hostage for…awhile. So I need to say something about them so I can return them. (I think that they’re beginning to suffer from Stockholm Syndrome as they are even shelved on my living room bookcase. *ahem*)

Anyway, Y: The Last Man by Brian Vaughan and Pia Guerra is, first, a graphic novel. Second, it’s apocalyptic and all the men die suddenly one day with no explanation. Yeah, you read that right, it is about the last man left alive on Earth.

Ok, so the story is pretty dang compelling. After all, the dead half of the world’s population is over-represented in positions of power all over the world, so there is quite a bit of upheaval. That being said, poor Yorick is not only saddled with the name of one of the dead men in Hamlet, he has some massive survivor’s guilt and an overwhelming unanswered question looming over his head. The world has been forever altered and it changes everything from reproduction to politics to how humanity defines itself.

Agh, I still don’t know what to say about it! This is most likely due to the fact that I’m not quite sure what I think. I mean, I know the story and, even, the execution are interesting, but they aren’t lending themselves to pithy observation. So someone please read them and tell me what you think? Pretty please with sugar on top?

Oh, I forgot this, but the end is a bit WTF…in a good way. I promise.
