Y The Last Man (Finally finished it)

Postby Starlord » Sat Jun 21, 2008 2:45 am

SPOILERS AHEAD, MATEY!














So I finally picked up the last trade of Yorick and crew. Wow. I always worry about how a series is going to end. Rarely do I think that it is ever done right, but this impressed the hell out of me.

A wonderful ending that made sense to me. Although I was pissed as hell that they killed off the agent (can't remember her name at the moment), and shocked to shit with who Hero ended up with!

But the moment that actually brought a tear to my eye, Ampersand. Goodbye little one... :cry:

It is always said when one of the Simian Peoples passes, especially one as heroic as Ampersand. Kong Speed, my friend.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never read this book. I want to, but it's one of the many that I need to track down in trade... :?

I actually lost track when I left comics. I have the first three trades, and I remember reading more than that in single issues... but I need to get the rest of the trades ASAP.

When Hawk posted that list of books he was giving away I asked for the first Y trade, but I don't know what ever happened with that...

This really is a good series. When it comes to anything not done by the big two, it ranks third; right behind Fables and Walking Dead.

Two things:

1) I'd put it AHEAD of those two.
2) Fables and Y are actually done by the big two. ;)

Well, I know... technically. LOL! I was wondering who was going to call me out on that one. :-D

I guess I meant, none super-hero related. ;-)

Also untrue.

Ampersand was a super KongDamn hero. :)

I have a battered copy of the first trade that I've been trying to replace with the singles for a while now. If I ever get my hands on them I'll send it over. Absolutely love the book, it was the first book to ever go start to finish without leaving my pull list, and I was damn teary-eyed when I closed that last issue.

issue #60 actually inspired my shortest comic review ever:



Y The Last Man #60
Published by Vertigo
Written by Brian K Vaughan
Pencils by Pia Guerra


This will be a very short review:
I have enjoyed Yorick's trip, every last mile;
With this issue we wish him adieu,
And when I turned to the last page, Alas... I smiled.

Score: 10

excellent review, and I couldn't have said it better myself. And your score was dead on.

Now here's a question for you guys. My oldest daughter (soon to be 16), is wanting to get into the Vertigo titles. She's very mature for her age, and I'm thinking this might not be a bad one for her to read.

Thoughts? :?

It's up to you man. I read ElfQuest when I was like ten, I don't think it scarred me for life.
Having said that I had a hard time letting my eleven year old read Runaways, and I had a tough choice with RASL as well, but she seems to be handling both fine and loves them dearly.

In conclusion, you know your daughter better then us, if you think it is a good idea, then go for it.
