I didn't like this one as well as the first. I think what I liked so much about the first one was that the whole idea of all the men being gone was new, and gave me a lot of things to think about. Now that the idea isn't new anymore, and the story is just about Yorick trying not to get killed, it's not quite as interesting.

It's still good, and the artwork is great, but the language is pretty bad. Does every character have to use the F-word constantly? Seems like the author could have tried harder to make the characters more distinct, instead of basically being all one character with different faces. And, although I know it's hard in a graphic novel, I would like to see some character development. Like what happened with his sister? How did she get to the point where she is? Honestly, Yorick is not that interesting, so too much revolving around him isn't as good as this story could be, I think.

Still, I would recommend this to fans of graphic novels. I'm still looking forward to seeing where the story goes.
