Co-creator Pia Guerra returns for Part 1 of the 2-part "Tongues of Flame."  This brand-new storyline - and excellent jumping-on point for new readers - explores what's happened to organized religion in the unmanned world. The Last Man on Earth is desperately searching for a Catholic priest so he can make an important confession.  But if Yorick's not careful, he may end up needing Last Rites instead.

    Pia Guerra returns to the book and since the guest-artists that was used maintained a nice visual continuity, her return is pretty seamless. This is by and large a tailing heads issue that is broken up by a killer flashback sequence, and it says a lot about the art that the scenes in the present day were able to hold their own when stacked against the sheer visceral thrill of the flashback, where we have a character telling her story of what happened when the plague hit. Still, the shot of the plane hitting the ground is a fantastic visual, though the scene where Yorick makes his move was also nicely done, as it's instantly clear he was the one who made the first move.
