Book Overview


In 2002, the world changes forever. Every man, every boy, every mammal with a Y chromosome everywhere on Earth suddenly collapses and dies. With the loss of nearly half the planet's population, the gears of society grind to a halt, and a world of women is 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 pet male monkey, Ampersand, are spared. Overnight, this anonymous twenty-something 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 cause of the epidemic is less important than the fate of his beloved fianc e, Beth. Now, after nearly four years and countless grueling miles, the final answers are about to be revealed--and the truth may be more than any man could bear.

In the conclusion to their acclaimed Vertigo series Y: The Last Man, writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra bring to vivid life the age-old speculation: What would really happen to the last man on Earth?

Collects Y: The Last Man #49-60.

   Great story and great reading
The series, written and illustrated, asks important questions about our nature and also gives us a parallel universe in which women are the only survivors of a plague except Yorick, our male character who is basically the last man alive along with his pet monkey and women protectors. Volume five is on par with the rest of the books and is a very emotional addition to the series. Just go out there and get your heart broken in, so that when you really need it yorick is ready.
   Once of the better series I've read.
Heartbreaking, well-written and wraps well without overstaying its welcome. One of the better series I ever read is definitely one of the better ones.
   Simply amazing. Fantastic
Wow, we can really think all right now. One of the best stories I ever had the pleasure to read is by far one of the best. Would love to do some more stories about what happened after Paris. If not the best graphic novel I've ever read close, maybe Watchmen then this, but it could be a tie. There is no way that anyone can love and not read it.
   Ruins everything that came before
One of the worst endings to any series I have ever followed in my entire life. At once, at the monumentally trite, while at the same time is depressing. A nihilistic abomination that does truly ruin every shred of good storytelling that came before. There are good ways to do tragedy, but as they say, this was so bad that I might stop reading Saga because if this is the kind of ending that the author likes, I'm going to save myself the trouble now.
   This is a must read!
If you think that comic books can not tell a concise story, then this is a must read. If you are into SHTF stories from alternate perspectives, this is a must read. If you want to see an adventure about a boy and his monkey, then this is a must read.
   I like this series but last book left me unhappy
I loved all four books. Even the fifth was great until the very last part. Not sure why it went in this direction, I don 't want to leave any spoilers. Overall, entertaining readnice art work as well as well as well.
   I've never been disappointed by Brian K. Vaughn
This was a must read after reading the four previous volumes. I highly recommend this book, it is an interesting story with great characters and very believable social commentary. I love Brian K. Vaughn's writing, everything from Runaways to Saga to Papergirls and beyond.
   A satisfying end
I don 't know why it took me longer than it should have to finish this book, let alone the entire series. This final book by Y definitely wraps things up as properly as a story should end. It has all the emotions, all the feelings. I had no expectations about how this would end, and that is why I feel satisfied with how it all ends.
