Not as strong in overall execution as the first volume, Unmanned, but good in the details. Further dissection of the Daughters of the Amazons and juxtaposition of that cult with the contained, more ordered world created by former female prisoners makes it worth the read, however (look forward to the last two issues for thematic clarity). The artwork remains consistent throughout, none of it jaw-dropping, but with good shading work to define the emotions drifting across each page--with the sunset work providing a nice tone to what I only imagine can be the first of many showdowns between Yorick, the last man, and his violent, crazed sister Hero.

And the surprise in the last panel of the volume will redeem the romantic simplicity that tends to leak into this book.
