The Last Man. Book One

Vaughan, Brian K.

(Book - 2008)
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
"In 2002, the world changes forever. Every man, every boy, every mammal witha Y chromosome every on Earth, suddenly collapses and dies. With the loss of more than half the planet's population, the gears of society grind to a halt, and a world of women are left to pick up the pieces and try to keep civilization from collapsing entirely. The 'gendercide', however, is not absolutely complete. For some unknown reason, one young man named Yorick Brown and his pet male monkey, Ampersand, are spared. Overnight, this anonymous twentysomething becomes the most important person on the planet-the key, it is hoped to unlocking the secret of the mysterious sex-specific plague."--Cover p. [4].

This might not be the most original story out there but it's fun to read.

Vaughan's get this story well done with good characters and memorable moments.

The artwork is outstanding.

A thought provoking and entertaining Graphic Novel series! Loosely based on Mary Shelley's novel.

Pretty good.

The art is excellent, and the writing isn't overbearing. Being a story focusing on the last man, there is some great female characterization, which is usually missing from many graphic novels. (I only wish it wasn't necessary to have only one male character in order to get some depth for the ladies, too.)

This book is widely recommended, and I cautiously agree. The story is a very interesting concept, but I felt it was a bit lackluster by the end of this first volume. I look forward to reading the rest of the series to see where it ends up.
