    I know it's cheaterish and stupid to review a series as a whole rather than the individual books, but I read these so fast, so one-after-the-other, that they're not too separatable for me. (Except the subplot about the actress troupe; that one sucked.) I guess people have a lot to ...

    A few days ago I asked Mr. Greg to pick a book for me? he asked me what kind of book you want? And I said something funny? and he did his ?I?m not sure I understand humans emotions anymore? look and asked me what is funny? That activated my ?you think you crazier than me??...

    Alas... I'm not sure how a book like this with such high expectations could ever end and leave everyone satisfied, but it did the trick for me. Sure, I want to know more. But it wrapped enough up to leave me feeling like the journey is complete. The resolution of Yorick's search for...

    I have to judge this series as a whole, and it gets five stars... though some of the individual issues and arcs may not be 5-star. It's got a few places that seem to mis-step, but it's just a fantastic work of writing, of fiction, imagination, knowledge, and insight. Yorick's no hero (...

    It'll be hard to respond to this without spoiling a lot, but here goes... So we finally bring all the characters together, and all the longing and all the inconvenient things that could happen do. Someone wants to confess something only for someone else to interrupt with another ear...

    While it was interesting, I really felt that Volume 10 ways sort of a disappointment as a conclusion of such a mostly solidly unique series. Also, it made no sense to me that all the clones would be called after the original person, which just seems like asking for more confusion. I li...

    I am very impressed. When I started reading this series, I was blown away by the first few volumes and couldn't wait to buy the next one to see not only where the story and characters were going, but also to experience the depth of writing. After a few volumes, though, I felt tha...

    *Spoilers Ahead!* If I think on it too long I can't help but feel just a little let down by the ending of this series. But, that said, doesn't mean that I'm altogether unhappy with the ending or that I think it should have been done differently. All mysteries are not fully revea...

    I imagine I'll update this review to say much, much more later, and to tone down the high minded pretentious to come, but I definitely wanted to write something right here and now, moments after turning the last page, absorbing the last image, and finishing this book (for the first of ...

    This is just the saddest fucking thing. I can't even . . . it gets sadder every fucking time I read it. Yorick the 17th: So this is it, huh? Yorick the 1st: What's that? Yorick the 17th: You know, growing old. All I have to look forward to is pain and misery . . . and heartbreak. ...

    Finished. Maybe this is the universal graphic novel, a little something for everyone? I'm sitting here crying because I'm such a big blubberhead and am so depressed about the ending, an ending that could not have happened any other way in order to remain true to the main idea driving t...

    Reflecting on this series, I'm going to say: not impressed. The series tended to irk me a lot. The idea is still thought-provoking and fascinating (you know the drill by now: what happened if every male mammal was wiped out, besides one Everyman and his monkey). But how Vaughan dea...

    (This is a review of the series as a whole rather than of the final book.) I read the whole series in about two days, so that should give you an idea how compelling this comic is. It's very well done, and I'm glad I was able to borrow the whole thing from friends and just read, read...

    I don't even know where to start. I'd love to just throw, no shovel, all kinds of praise on this! You know, like when The Academy gave Peter Jackson all those awards for The Return of the King, mostly neglecting the first two (sidebar: I hate those damn Hobbit movies). Vaughan did e...

    I went back and read the series over the last month or so -- made easier by the fact that my local library has a full set now, and are not in as serious demand. I liked the ending much better on the second read. Y:The Last Man tells an extended tale of the single man who survives "the...

    Okay, so that ending was all kinds of awesome. And horror. And awesome again. We get our happy ending, have it turn into the opposite, and then we get it happy again, and then we are subjected to a truly great punchline. You know, as in the answer to a great joke about men and women...

    A superb ending to an amazing series. Y - The Last Man weaves an incredible tale about a global apocalypse and it's potential roots but still manages to make it very human with brilliantly fleshed out characters - a kick-ass secret agent, a genius bio-geneticist, a doggedly determined ...

    Quite the satisfying read. I really appreciated that the source of the gendercide was not the point of the series. That kept the series from turning into some silly mystery, sending them off finding clues and figuring out what happened - that would have been pointless. What was inte...

    Wow that ending...good series but seriously? It's like all that work and development led to nothing. Speaking of developing, at this point I can discuss Agent 355 and Yoricks's relationship. We follow them for a five year period on many dangerous missions. They don't get along inti...

    NOOOOOOO. It's finished!!!! I've tried to delay finishing this incredible series for ages and I'm going to miss all the characters SO much. Yorick, 355., Dr. Mann.. AMPERSAND ugh, all of them! I don't know how to feel about that ending, this whole volume was so intense. The revelat...

    I finished last volume and my overall impression is that it's good series but not without flaws. Y:The last man is funny and even ridiculous on few occasions but also points out unequalty (there are hardly any female pilots, women that killed their husbands serve more time than men ...

    Y THE LAST MAN is the story of a young man, named Yorick Brown and his monkey Ampersand, both males in a world where every single male has died. That's right, every male on the planet, not just human males, has died in the world, and this story doesn't go the way you think it would. Wh...

    this is the most beautiful epilogue to a comic series i have ever read its elegant and mind-blowing and satisfying i was very sad to see 355 die since all the signs said that she and Yorick will be together in the end i was heartbroken with yorick to know that beth the first was go...

    Reading the epilogue with Ramin Djawadi?s Light of the Seven in the background wasn?t a very good idea. This last volume was a roller coaster of emotions, one moment I was feeling happy, the next I was feeling sad and all this kept happening until the crushing finale that made me w...

    Oof. Owie, right in the amygdala. A pretty melancholic ending for an otherwise powerhouse series, but conducted to hit where it's meaningful. So all in all, the ends are tied tightly and the graves are settled. (view spoiler)[Killing off 355 in such a way was morally reprehensible on...
