Summary: Yorrick Brown, the last man on earth after a terrible plague wiped out half of the world's population, is a man on a mission. After finding the lab of Dr. Mann, a cloning scientist who might be able to figure out why Yorrick is still alive, in flames, Yorrick, Dr. Mann, and secret government operative 355 must travel across the country to Dr. Mann's back-up facility in California. However, their quest gets derailed (literally, heh) in the middle of Ohio, where they come across a town that seems a little too good to be true. Meanwhile, there are several groups hunting the rumored last man, including a group of murderous Amazons that includes Yorrick's sister. Review: Okay, this series has got me good and hooked. The second volume is as compelling as the first one was, and since the basics of the worldbuilding are already present, it's a little tighter and a little more focused. This story flirted with some pathos and deeper emotions for our main characters as well, although I wish they - Yorrick, especially - had been given a little bit more time to process and dive into those emotions. Story-wise, it's a nice arc as well; it's simultaneously self-contained and dropping hints and trailers that will certainly be picked up in the future. I still can't always tell the female characters apart (although I'm really good at distinguishing between the male characters... not so hard, considering there are only two of them, and one's a monkey.) There's only one point in this volume where someone's identity is important to the plot but not stated out loud, and I figured out who that was easily enough. There are other little niggling details about the art that bug me, too; for instance, I would never have guessed that Dr. Mann is Asian based on the way she's drawn - black hair and glasses aren't enough to cut it, folks. Overall, though, the art is clean and attractive, and the story's insanely interesting, so I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series. 4.5 out of 5 stars. Recommendation: Not a stand-alone, but based on what I've seen thus far, I'd absolutely recommend the series as a whole.

Interesting...but more of the same. Sister catches up with brother and acts totally predictable and out of character, at the same time. Meanwhile, the most interesting part is the cliff hanger. I look forward to that.

This series is shaping...

This series is shaping up to be one of my all time favorites.When we last left Yorick, he was trying to travel across the United States with the help of Agent 355 and Dr. Mann. This is especially difficult when most roadways are blocked with abandoned vehicles and other large obstacles. Therefore, the best route of travel? Train. The trip is interrupted quickly when attacked by a gang of women separate from the Amazons. Once again, their journey is thrown into disarray. To go any further in the plot description would throw some major spoilerific elements your way, so I'll stop right here.Going back to that opening sentence of mine - I really hated putting that in there. I mean, I've only just finished the 2nd book (of ten)! However, I honestly feel that way. In the second collection, we are given a whole hell of a lot of character development and story progression. Not only are we witness to several high anxiety confrontations but A LOT of revelations as well. All of these characters stay interesting especially considering Brian K. Vaughn just keeps throwing more people at us. You never get that feeling that Vaughn is trying to stretch the story out in a way that's not needed - length for the sake of it.It probably goes without saying, but the artwork is fantastic. It plays out like watching a great action movie. Pia Guerra does an excellent job displaying Vaughn's vision with quick cutting and suspense building images.I have high hopes for the remainder of this series. The only problem in getting these from my local library is waiting until the next one is available. Probably should've done the smart thing and taken them out all at once.

Another installment in...

Another installment in this very enjoyable sequence (although I've read some out of order). I enjoy the post-apocalyptic feel, the banter, the characters, the drawing and the story. Things are serious for Yorick but not as much as it gets later. He's chased by amazons, including his crazy sister and various gang bangers. More please.

Yorick and his friends...

Yorick and his friends are still being pursued by the Amazons which unbeknownst to him includes his sister. They are also being pursued by an Israeli squad with a secret commander. The group are forced to jump off a train and all reunite in a sleepy town Marrisville, Ohio. The town has a secret it is keeping hidden from the rest of the world and when the trio discover it, it provokes mixed responses and emotions. The Amazon's finally catch up with them and there is a showdown between Yorick and his sister. The art is nothing too exciting, but good enough to tell the story and serves its purpose. This is a story driven rather than artistic driven series from Vertigo.
