Take three astronauts, one surface-to-air missile launcher, and a pair of Mossad-issue handcuffs...and you'd only have half the ingredients of the last man on earth's most dangerous escape act.

    I'm getting a bit anxious when it comes to getting the astronauts on the ground, and Brain K. Vaughan seems to be well aware of this, as he decides to torture us readers with the promise of an answer next month. However, there's more than enough going on in this issue to hold my attention, as the lead villain of this issue is a pretty nasty customer whose cold, and dispassionate approach being the only group on the planet with a living male was quite surprising. It's also good to see Yorick is finally allowed to do something heroic, as lately he's been more of a passenger, than an active participant. However, the real star of this issue would have to be Agent 355, who manages to come up with a plan that while reckless did prove to be a success. I also enjoyed the moments of humor, as Yorick was in fine form in his dealings with his kidnappers, and I loved the final scene where Yorick is allowed to express his annoyance at the cliffhanger ending us readers are subjected to.

    Brian Vaughn is a sincere writer; his characters speak and act in ways that feel consistent and believable. Im sure he has an endgame in mind for this comic, there are surely numerous major events to come. I just wish that his bosses at Vertigo would allow him press down on the accelerator a bit more. Most comic books wish they had the same troubles, Y: The Last Man is its so good we just cant wait to see how it turns out. Read Full Review
