Recommends it for: Comics readers, fans of pirates
From the title to the swordplay to the sophomoric dialogue, this volume plunges Y: The Last Man into cloyingly amateurish territory. Characterization suffers at the behest of sexual antics and cartoonish plots (pirates? Really?). This is the first volume where I found myself skimming the dialogue and panels to just get through scenes. This doesn’t match up with any of the tones from previous volumes, and it makes every unbelievable aspect of the story much more annoying (from a woman getting her ...more

So, a lot happens in this volume. Unfortunately, it's the first collection that probably deserved a little less than 4 stars. If not for the incredible ending, I would probably give it a 3-3.5.

Vaughan explores a little of what Yorick's girlfriend is up to in Australia and how she's coping with the plague. We're treated to an excellent dream sequence where Beth (view spoiler).

The only thing I didn't like was the ridiculous subplot with pirate

Technically, this volume wasn't probably any worse than the previous volumes in this series, but for whatever reason, I just wasn't as into it as I have been. I think that one of the things that's sort of been bothering me about this series is perfectly explained by one of the characters in this volume:

"It figures. An entire planet of women, and the one guy gets to be the lead."

In that way, this title isn't really any different from, say, Dances with Wolves or the Last Samurai, where instead of

A frequent complaint about this series is that even though there is only one guy left, he is still the center of everything. It is to some extent, every man's fantasy--you're all that's left and all the women are throwing themselves at you because they are horny and/or want to get pregnant. That being said, as a reader and as a woman, I find this series absolutely fascinating, well-done, with excellent and witty dialogue, awesome literary references and really interesting questions explored.

this thing is getting soap operatic. now that yorick had sex once, he keeps on hooking up with people. every woman who learns he was engaged (which he wasn't) rather than just having a girlfriend is all like, oh, I never would have hooked up with you, last man on earth, if I had known you were *engaged* instead of just in a relationship. also, agent 355 once said she loved yorick and has tried to walk that back ever since. now she hooks up with the doctor, and yorick walks in on it and gets all ...more

Cruise ship pirates? An attacking submarine? Flashy excursions into lesbianism? Espionage that Agent 355 doesn't know about? C'mon, that's worth savoring!

True, Girl on Girl is by far the most ridiculous volume in the Y the Last Man series, but does that mean it has no value? I wouldn't jump to that conclusion, or merely write off this sea adventure as one note or immature for its sexuality. The story is simpler here, but I'm fine with taking a break from the thornier issues Vaughan has set up ov

Yeah, that opium smuggeling wasn't really my thing, but apart from that great!

This volume of Y: The Last Man just seemed "too easy." It seems in this volume that Vaughn was running out of story ideas and took the simple way out by using sex between two of the main characters. This series has been a bit of a disappointment for me; while reading this volume, I found myself rolling my eyes. I had joked with a friend while discussing this that either Dr. Mann and Agent 355 were both going to fall for Yorick or that they would fall for each other.

It seems that both have happe

This volume got back in the game for me. Yorick, 355, and Dr. Mann have managed to board a ship headed out to Japan so they can search for Ampersand.

Unfortunately, it looks like some horny, teenage boy got a hold of this volume sometime before I did and ripped out several sections of this book, pages I assume contained naked women. I can only infer that Yorick, for the second time in the volume, had sex, this time with the captain of the ship and Dr. Mann and 355 somehow got it on, how this cam

Yorick's odyssey continues, but it's not clear what this stop in his journey contributes. Another beautiful woman loved and lost? This series seems not to know whether it wants to be an intellectually honest thought experiment or simply an engaging comic book tale. Or maybe it is simply the latter, and I want more of the former.

Vaughan merely flirts with topics that merit serious attention. In a world with no men, what becomes of the line between heterosexuality and homosexuality? In a world wit
