NOT the typical post apok, last man standing book at all.

When this series was on the stands, I sort of look a look and never really got into it. Sure, the art was good, it was sort of an original idea, but honestly it didn't grab me.

Cut to years later and either my tastes changed or my curiosity got the better of me; either way I am glad.

Having had the series suggested and recommended to me by numerous people, I saw Deluxe Edition Book One on sale on Amazon and decided "What the Hey" and ordered it.

I was not even a quarter of the way through it when I ordered the other four books.

It has been a VERY long time since I have found a series where my main disappointment at the end of a book is that it is over. I devoured these, and then at the end of Book Five had to sit there and go "Awww, man...".

The story reaches an end, and it is a good one, but I found myself still wanting time with those characters. I wanted to know what happened to so many of them, and how they turned out. The snippets and hints were not enough.

The writing will draw you in. The art will keep you there page after page.

Trust me: If you are going to get one of these compilations, just do yourself a big favor and get all five at once.

It has taken me a while to get to this point. I started reading the first deluxe probably at least a year ago, slowly making my way here. Slowly meaning i bought volumes 3, 4, and 5 withing the last two months. The final book brings me to a point where the overall story no longer matters to me. While we've received hypothesis and a possible certain answer for the plague, I found myself caring more about the characters and their direct involvement with each other. The relationships formed in this series were fantastic, I was attached and emotional invested in all of them. Overall a great finish to a wonderful must-read series. This book will take you for an emotional roller coaster, and it's worth it in every single way.

A great way to end off the series. While I don't consider it the perfect possible ending (watchmen, bioshock infinite, and a few others have earned this achievement) it was nonetheless impactful, sweet, sad, and satisfying.

Classic May 15 2012
By Terrence A. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Just finished the series about an hour ago. From the very first page, I was hooked. It starts off with a bang and never lets up. It's funny, whenever I told people who inquired about the books what they were about, they kind of smirked and you could read their thoughts in their eyes.

"All the men die except for one guy and he's in a world full of nothing but women? What kind of perversity is that you're reading?"

I kid you not when I say that this is one of the VERY best comic series/ graphic novels I have ever read. I got really involved in it and it's to Brian K. Vaughan's credit that he not only succeeded in telling a rich, complex tale and wrapped it up nice and tight, he succeeded with flying colors in creating a world populated with wonderful, deep, memorable characters in a story that is so much more than what you see on the surface. It has so much to offer in terms of ideas, beliefs, theories and general insight into our world that it's absolutely no surprise to this reviewer that Vaughan won the Eisner award for this amazing story. The art by Pia Guerra is also very good and consistent throughout.

I can't say anymore than that this book affected me very, very deeply. I can't recall any other graphic novel bringing me to tears with its denouement.

Actually, I'll say this. If you're reading this and you're a film/TV producer, don't even think of trying to shoehorn this series into a two hour film. This is worthy of at least a trilogy, or at the very least, a devoted mini series.

The final volume of a great series May 11 2011
By Andy Shuping - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the 5th, and last, collected volume of one of the greatest illustrated series ever written "Y the Last Man," and I can't imagine a better ending. We rejoin Yorick, Agent 355, Ampersand, and Dr. Mann as they continue their quest to find Yorick's missing girlfriend and discover a way to preserve the human race. And along the way old friends rejoin the group as the final truth is revealed. Our characters have grown as we've traveled around the world with them and now we discover secrets to their past that have direct bearing on the present condition the world finds itself in. And the mysterious ninja that's been trailing the team? We find out who she is and who she works for. And Yorick may not be the last man left alive after all.

I really want to say more, but I don't want to spoil the ending because I'm not sure its one that anyone would have predicted. And its powerful. Just like in all good stories we have to say goodbye to some of the characters we've grown to know and love. The writing is at its absolute best in the series and Brian doesn't disappoint. He keeps us on the edge of seats constantly turning the page to find out what happens next. And in some places you can't help but be moved as he stirs powerful emotions as we witness what happens to our favorite characters. And Pia's artwork is as fantastic as it was in the beginning. Its a great last volume and an exciting epic conclusion to one of the most powerful stories ever told.

A complete-feeling conclusion to one of the best graphic novel series of all time July 7 2011
By Chip Hunter - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Well I didn't see that coming.. The final volume of "Y- THE LAST MAN" certainly had some surprises in store, and I bet very few readers were able to accurately predict how the story would end. The personal journeys of Yorick, 355, and Dr. Mann were the main focus of the entire series, and they got most of the attention during this final volume as well. I found their stories compelling, believable, and satisfying (if not always happy), and at the end of this book you really feel like to got the entire tale. No sudden departure or leaving the reader wondering here, as Vaughn delivers what you'd expect from a master story-teller, giving you all the detail (and epilogue) to wrap the story up completely. Less satisfying was the revelations about what actually killed all the males and why Yorick (and Ampersand) alone were spared. It doesn't really take away from the overall enjoyment of the story, but I was really expecting something more imaginative and provocative than what was delivered. But, it goes back to the point that the main focus of the series was the personal stories of the characters, and not so much the global story of gendercide and recovery. Overall, an extremely well-done conclusion to an absolutely wonderful series.

As for these deluxe hardcover editions, I totally recommend them. High-quality paper, some additional artwork, large format, dust jacket, and bonus material make these editions must have for collectors and simply better than the trade paperbacks. When you consider that these are really two volumes in one, they actually come out cheaper too, so there is really no reason why you wouldn't go with these deluxe editions if you're trying to decide between the two.
Great comic book series Jan. 10 2013
By R. Pairault - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought the entire series after it was complete, and published in deluxe hard cover collections. I still bought them one volume at a time, and read them in sequence. Even that approach was nail biting in some cases when I couldn't get the book right away when I was done reading the previous one!! Maybe worth noting that when I started reading “Y” I was in a “Walking Dead” mindset, having just finished re-reading the entire collected works all the way to Volume 8. The story is captivating, even though the plot in itself is not super original. Being the last man on earth, literally, is not a new theme. But the main story, the side stories and all the characters are very well rounded. The timeline and chronology is very well handled. I loved the black panels with white text to set the place and time context. The drawing, which is such an important part for me when reading comic books or graphic novels, is very very solid, brilliant in some cases. I look at the pages a lot, without even reading words, for quite some time, before reading the story. Even if I could notice when the artist changed, it was not detrimental to the quality, the flow, or the story telling. The ONLY thing that I could mention as a very slight negative is the panel cut which is almost clinically identical across the entire story, except for some full page art, full bleed coloring, and some other effects of that nature. I am used to –and enjoy– more original cutting of the panels as in European comics from France, Spain, Belgium, etc. and it made it to the more traditional US and English comics too. The chapters detailing the interaction and instructions between the writer and the artist, the sketches, and other extra material definitely make those books a great addition to your comics collection. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Y The Last Man Deluxe Book Five Review March 8 2012
By Xavier Zavala Heras - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
So, here we are. The last book about the last men on Earth, Yorik Brown!

Many of you would think I'm cheating because I didn't wrote a review for each part, but... man! I'm a bit tired! I read all 5 books in a week. A few hours before sleeping. Sometimes I was so tired but I couldn't stop reading. The story is THAT gripping!

Anyway, as you might already know, the book is about a world that is being habitated only by women given that a plague killed every mammal with a Y chromosome. Meaning, every man, dog, bull, etc on Earth is dead... Except for "master" escapist, Yorik Brown and his manle monkey, Ampersand.

Why Yorik and Ampersand are alive? Whay the plague didn't kill them? Well, you won't find out up until the 5th book, but that doesn't mean there's nothing on the road, isn't it?

I'm fascinated on how the writer managed to create a world were only women rule. There's the afraid, confusion, and then fractioning.

Afraid? Well, the current way of living is gone forever.
Confusion? How would the femenine gender manage to go on, when most of the labor used to be made by men!
Fractioning? Intersting how there's several group of women such as the Daughters of the Amazon, or the Army Gals from Israel, that form groups of women gathered by common believe. VERY interesting!

The action, character development, interesting points of view about life, machismo and other stuff is right there and written beautifully. I'mpossible not to laugh or feel angry when stuff happen. Those emotions can only be get on a comics when the writing is damn good.

The art also do it's part. The covers made by JG Jones are amazing, and the inside art by Pia Guerra is also perfect for the story. It goes hand and hand. Just lovely!

Every book comes with a good set of extras, going from sketches on Volume 1 (and 2, I believe), and the other volumes contain the scrip for one of the chapters.

When I end reading the series, I felt... Not sure how I felt, but I do know that I felt I just read one of the most amazing stories ever written, and I don't say that lightly.

If you want to read a comics, but not necessarily a Super-hero comic, I higly recommend these books. They have a begining, a resolution and an end. There's no more after the fith. Is all over. And that makes me love the series even more.
