It's the dramatic conclusion you've been waiting for as Yorick and company reach the end of their journey in this very special 48-page issue.

    This gets my highest possible recommendation. If you're a regular reader with concerns about the finale living up to the hype, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. And if you're new to the world of Y altogether, now's a great time to pick up that first trade and start the journey. Read Full Review

    So its a great ending to the series. Its satisfying, in that it gives us an (open) end to a great story, but its also unsatisfying, in the way that every goodbye shares. We dont want this story to end; theres so much more time we could have spent with the characters, and so much more that we want to see. But it has to end, and Vaughan and Guerra finish it up perfectly, letting us imagine everything that we didnt actually view. The series will live on in our minds, and we can be thankful for the time we had. Thanks, guys. Read Full Review

    How do I end my last review for Y: The Last Man? I guess Ill do it in the same manner with which Vaughan, Guerra, Marzan, Loughbridge, and company ended Issue #60. Im so sad that this series had to come to an end, but I am happy that it concluded in the finest fashion possible, with class and an ending that was truly the last chapter of the tale. Y is among the finest series ever produced by Vertigo, and I think it will be a long time until this excellence is seen again. Read Full Review

    Its an old adage that a great entertainer should leave his audience wanting more. I found myself intrigued by this future world and would love to spend even more time in it. Cmon, Vaughan, you probably have everything that happens in the future sketched out on long sheets of white paper, right? Cant you share some of that stuff with us? Read Full Review

    I'd hate to end on that negative note, so let me reiterate that as far as this reviewer is concerned, the conclusion of Y: The Last Man is as close to a perfect ending as you're likely to see anywhere in the history of comics. Read Full Review

    For the Spanish uneducated, "Alas" means "Wings". But it's not that hard to understand. It was bittersweet to see all the characters for the last time. I'm going to miss them. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Feb 1, 2008

    As compelling as the ethical elements of the story are, what really stands out as the greatest strength of the book is the characterization. Through various flash-forwards, the writer explores who the various cast members of the series are. It turns out Hero and Original Beth were lost souls who finally found themselves. Allison Mann is transformed from a woman at war with different parts of her own personality and past into a bunch of separate individuals that represent those distinct fragments. The characters are riveting, as everyone is outstanding, intellectually and/or in terms of physical skills. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Feb 3, 2008

    This series was dealt a fatal blow with the murder of 355 a few issues back. The void she left wont ever be filled. She, more than either of the Beths (the pretty blonde girls that formed the core of the traditional hero quest for so many issues of this title), was the love of Yoricks life, the ideal partner who challenged him beyond his own self-perceived limits time and time again. Its really a sign of his strength that Yorick survived her demise at all. His daughter (another Beth) the Prime Minister has confined him in his own best interest, but really, what was she thinking? It takes more than a straightjacket to hold a Fool. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jan 30, 2008

    It's servicable, but I would rather ignore it completely and will probably never go out of my way to read it again. I'd say Avoid It, but this is the last issue and we'll never get any Y ever again. So it's worth it in that regard, but it wasn't what I expected, it wasn't what I wanted, it didn't answer any lingering questions I had and it failed in properly showing me the future of these characters and the affects and lasting impressions they made on the world were.
