9781401258801: Y: The Last Man Book Three

Every man, every boy and every other mammal with a Y chromosome everywhere on Earth is dead. The gears of society grind to a halt following the loss of nearly half the planet’s population, and a world of women are left to pick up the pieces and try to keep civilization from collapsing entirely.

The “gendercide,” however, is not absolutely complete. For some unknown reason, one young man named Yorick Brown and his male monkey, Ampersand, are spared. Overnight, this anonymous twentysomething becomes the most important person on the planet—the key, it is hoped, to unlocking the secret of the mysterious sex-specific plague.

For Yorick himself, the most important person on the planet is 7,000 miles away—and he will stop at nothing to find her. But with an entire ocean still standing between them, chances for a reunion are fading—and new threats are closing in from every side.

Writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra’s acclaimed VERTIGO series Y: THE LAST MAN brings to vivid life the age-old speculation: What would really happen to the last man on Earth? Collects Y: THE LAST MAN #24-36.

About the Author:

Brian K. Vaughan is the Eisner Award-winning co-creator of the critically acclaimed comics series Y: THE LAST MAN and EX MACHINA. He also co-created the Vertigo graphic novel PRIDE OF BAGHDAD and served as a writer and producer for the hit television series Lost. He is currently writing the bestselling Image Comics series Saga and the online comics series The Private Eye, and is the showrunner and executive producer of the hit CBS television series "Under the Dome," based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 10 Up–This work reprints volumes 24-36 of the original comic series in a gorgeous hardcover edition. Yorick Brown and his capuchin monkey, Ampersand, are the lone male survivors of a planet-wide "gendercide." The loss of 48 percent of the population has thrown much of the planet into chaos, creating dangerous conditions for everyone–especially the only man alive. Yorick makes his way to San Francisco, to Dr. Mann, who is trying to find the cause and cure for the male plague. Agent 355 shadows him and protects him from a variety of spies, fanatics, criminals, and nuts who would stand in his way. When Ampersand is kidnapped and whisked off to Japan, they must take to the seas to try and find him. The artwork is stunning, featuring the original strips and cover work. Muted tones and changing palettes are expertly used to convey mood and tone. The highly original plot is compelling and fast moving, with plenty of action. The use of flashbacks, hallucinations, and fantasies within the story line may confuse weaker readers. Most teens will want to read the previous volumes first. Harsh language, adult situations, and occasional partial nudity make this one most appropriate for public libraries.Anthony C. Doyle, Livingston High School, CA
