    Waiting for the trade?: Although Y is written in multi-issue arcs, it actually reads better as a monthly due to the maintained level of high suspense and regular cliffhangers. One doesnt want to wait a whole month to discover what Dr. Mann has found, but the delayed gratification makes it sweeter. Plus, there will certainly be rampant spoilers before the paperback arrives, and missing the full impact of this revelation would be most unfortunate. For those whove been reading the series in TPB up to now, it would be a good idea to break the habit just this once and get this arc in serial form. Dont worry about how your bookshelf will look; according to the Zen principle of wabi-sabi an imperfect collection is more perfect for its flaws. And who can argue with Zen. Read Full Review

    New readers looking for a point of entry into Y: The Last Man would do better to pick up Safeword, the latest collection, for a fuller introduction to the title. The qualities that make Vaughans writing so successful - his capacious imagination and the sense that his characters, like the actors on Amy Sherman-Palladinos Gilmore Girls, must have taken elocution lessons to deliver such an endless stream of wit - are evident in issue #29, but as a stand-alone, it doesnt quite capture the pleasure to be had from the book.
