Y the Last Man: Unmanned

The last issue, #60, of Brian K. Vaughan’s series Y the Last Man was just released, so I thought I’d go back to the beginning with Volume 1: Unmanned and read through to the end. Y is Yorick, literally the last man on Earth when a mysterious plague wipes out every male mammal with a Y chromosome. Yorick, along with his last monkey, the male Ampersand, go undercover to track down his mother and sister. He meets up with Agent 355, a member of the covert group The Culper Ring, and she is reluctantly pressed into protecting him. Unmanned sets the stage for the series with strong characters and a good mystery.

For other books I’ve read, and for the ridiculously long list of books I think I’d like to read, visit my library at Gurulib.
