    The question of the male astronauts has been running through the pages of this book for the better part of the past year, so I must confess I was a little disappointed by the rather abrupt resolution this plot in given in the opening pages. Now there is a plot element that is left behind that does leave the door open, and I imagine we'll be looking back on this subplot from time to time, which in turn will hopefully result in Natalya making a return to these pages. However, it is starting to grow a bit worrisome that this book has yet to offer up any clues about the plague itself, as the opening scene cheats us out of learning if the plague is even still active, and the lingering plot element that results from this plot is going to be on the back burner for quite some time. Now I realize that the plague is the lynch-pin that is the very core of this series, and I can see why Brian K. Vaughan would be reluctant to start up the guessing game this early into the run, but it would be nice Read Full Review

    As you can tell by the way I didnt discuss much of the issues goings on that theres not a lot of action after the astronauts touched down. Some would say that this fact points to padded comic book writing, but I would argue against that sentiment. Vaughan is telling his story at a somewhat deliberate pace, but each page in this issue has meaning and adds a good deal to the ongoing narrative. Vaughan is doing more than just wrapping up an arc here; hes expertly setting up the next two arcs and its a treat to be able to see such forward thinking. Ive said it once and Ill keep saying it until someone listens, if youre one of those people interested in spreading your love of comics on to others, Y is the perfect book to use. Read Full Review
