it just rubbed me the wrong way Like I don t understand why the entire world just stops functioning completely Are there no female engineers or scientists or electricians in the entirety of the world So there s this thing that happens in post apocalypse stories that I need to talk to you about You know how in a zombiepocalypse story we occassionally receive hints that it might be better for the women to stay safe so they can make babies Usually it s only hints, and the male characters don t seem to want to offend the post feminist sensibilities of the women, so instead the women tote guns and put their wombs at risk of becoming a zombie buffet But everyone gets along ish, and there are us So there s this thing that happens in post apocalypse stories that I need to talk to you about You know how in a zombiepocalypse story we occassionally receive hints that it might be better for the women to stay safe so they can make babies Usually it s only hints, and the male characters don t seem to want to offend the post feminist sensibilities of the women, so instead the women tote guns and put their wombs at risk of becoming a zombie buffet But everyone gets along ish, and there are usually plenty of women and men, so it doesn t seem like fertility is the most important concern Or you get the big, bad group of fascist men trying to turn some poor girl into a breeder for the new human race, but she tends to rise up, spank their patriarchal asses, escape with her girl power intact, and hook up with some nice guy with whom she s fought for survival And in the bleakest of apocalypses there s no hope anyway, so who gives a shit about procreation Everyone s dead or dying, cannibalism is running rampant, society has failed, and humans are doomed to extinction The best the survivors can do is keep hiking down some road to whatever is further down the road with the world as nothing but the road.But I ve totally fucking had it now that I ve read Y The Last Man This book really pisses me off to no end.I m fine with the ian self mutilators I can buy an angry, post apocalyptic group of violent women I am willing to suspend my disbelief that Yorick and his monkey make it through the manpocalypse as the only surviving Y chromosomes I ll yawn and tolerate the Yankee setting of yet another apocalypse I ll cringe but cope with yet another bad ass, dreadlocked, African American woman who s the most capable and violent person around I ll even believe that spindly little Yorick can pass as a woman as long as he has his gas mask on But what I won t believe, what I won t buy, where I won t suspend by disbelief, where I am not fine is with the idea that Yorick would ever, EVER, be allowed to wander around the winter of homo sapienism with one body guard, risking his testicles for some stupid, pointless, selfish, idiotic search for the love of his life and his sister His sperm, and Ampersand s, would be the most important substances known to womankind not because he is a man but because of sheer practicality He would be protected whether he liked it or not He would be imprisoned His sperm would be used to impregnate It would be used to find an immunity for future boys It would be used for the survival of homo sapiens Period I heard this book was really great a must read graphic novel At best it is okay if you look past the idiocy of Yorick s wanderings, his insufferable smarminess, that stupid fucking monkey, and the poorest characterizations of women you re ever likely to see Why two stars then Because it isn t quite as bad as the Luna Brothers Girls though it is damn close Yorick Brown is that guy who can t hold down a job Plays with magic..and he is the last man on earth Something has killed off everything male on the planet He and his pet monkey are all that s left Now gangs of women called the s, a bunch of Republicans and his brainwashed sister Hero are all wanting a piece of Yorick Either to kill him or mate him He just wants to find his fiance in Australia.This was a fun book I thought it was going to go very political but quickly beca Yorick Brown is that guy who can t hold down a job Plays with magic..and he is the last man on earth Something has killed off everything male on the planet He and his pet monkey are all that s left Now gangs of women called the s, a bunch of Republicans and his brainwashed sister Hero are all wanting a piece of Yorick Either to kill him or mate him He just wants to find his fiance in Australia.This was a fun book I thought it was going to go very political but quickly became a fun book This book is such a neat concept, but there s 4 things I m stuck on.1 it s a book about a world run by women after all the men die, yet it s still told from the POV of a man because conveniently one survives I think I would have loved thisif we were given a story of a world with just all women, because heaven knows we could survive without that one man 2 This book was way, way, way, waypolitical than I was expecting it to be The mother of the MC works in Washington so a lot This book is such a neat concept, but there s 4 things I m stuck on.1 it s a book about a world run by women after all the men die, yet it s still told from the POV of a man because conveniently one survives I think I would have loved thisif we were given a story of a world with just all women, because heaven knows we could survive without that one man 2 This book was way, way, way, waypolitical than I was expecting it to be The mother of the MC works in Washington so a lot of this concerned the government and what to do once a bunch of the male politicians died, and that was cool for a few pages, but got old really fast I m sure this will getinteresting throughout the next books, but it was a bit repetitive 3 I feel like this just feeds the negative image and stereotype of radical feminists One main antagonist in this book is a group of women called the s who burn sperm banks and basically celebrate the end of men, which I think is farfetched and a bit inappropriate Even if some women did this, I don t think they would play as major of a role as they did in this book, and I think this misleading depiction could rub off wrong on readers and make feminism seemmilitant than it actually is 4 One of the first things I thought of when I started this was the topic of trans men and how they would be treated and or react to this situation I think it would have been awesome to spotlight a trans man navigating this new world However, this book handled it so poorly The one mention of a trans man is to tell the reader that he was murdered by the s because they didn t think any men should continue to live Additionally, a slur tr nny was used to address this person, AND he was misgendered and called a she whenever his death was described This book was written set in 2002, so I anticipate some of those flaws and the political incorrectness may derive from its outdatedness, but I still couldn t get over those few things.But other than that, I had a great time reading it The art is nice It s funny It s easy to follow, and one of the only graphic novels i ve read in a while that I m eager to find the sequels to immediately I discovered this series randomly while looking through graphic novels on Hoopla I had never heard of it before but recognized the

since I was a child, saving my measly allowance for Archie and his friends Once I discovered my mother s Harold Robbins novels, I never went back to comics until now.A number of my Goodreads friends enjoy graphic novels as they are called now , so I became curious and asked my friend Kemper for a recommendation Y The Last Man was perfect for me to start with I love post apocalyptic stories and wanted some light, easy reading between school books.A plague that destroys the world s male population, except a young man and his monkey s who want to rid the world of the last vestige of male oppression A model who disposes of corpses A mysterious agent who knits Republicans with guns Humorous dialogue, great illustrations, fun characters and a fast paced story made me gobble this up in one sitting Looking forward to The story started out so well fast paced, intriguing..I can see it s a dude comic, the main character ends up being the last man left on a planet full of allll kinds of women No matter what kind of an ugly twat you might wanna be, some woman will want you Yessss I see half naked blonde, beachy style woman, some ex models running around, army women, special op women, scientist women That s ookayyy with me It is a dude comic, after all, no Then came this Yorick main char I m not afraid of The story started out so well fast paced, intriguing..I can see it s a dude comic, the main character ends up being the last man left on a planet full of allll kinds of women No matter what kind of an ugly twat you might wanna be, some woman will want you Yessss I see half naked blonde, beachy style woman, some ex models running around, army women, special op women, scientist women That s ookayyy with me It is a dude comic, after all, no Then came this Yorick main char I m not afraid of the worldI m fraid of a world without you I mean it, Beth I really feel lost when we re apart Beth I know I ve missed you too, Yorick I was just thinking about the time we were on the roof in the rainYorick But it s not just that I mean, of course I miss that, butYou re my best friend, Beth You re brilliant and funny and your favorite movie is Miller s Crossing I didn t even know there were women like you.Later the main char hereafter referred to as Twat says to his mother Twat But I don t want to sit here and be aa stud for however many anonymous women you expect me to inseminate Not when the girl I love is out there He blankly stares through the window No, man NO Don t do this to me So much for the dude comic Ok.So, next we see Twat encounter a woman that seems to be picking up dead bodies and driving them in a garbage truck in order to exchange them for canned food I won t even go there, but what I wish to point out is the following remember Jill from Resident Evil 3 I was always pissed that she s fighting infectious zombies half naked, when her priority is to shield herself from their bites at any cost I d armor up Now, this tschik seems to do the same She s an ex super model, trying to lift the male dead bodies of 80 100kg each and toss em into the garbage truck There is no way she can do this alone without getting in heavy body contact with half or nearly rotten dead bodies Did I mention that it is also nighttime Moving on What appears next seems to be the development of Twat s character, where we see that he s not only a gentle lover, but also momma s boy And anyway, what could POSSIBLY be worst than the dreadful terrorists that seem to be aiming straight and only at America pause fordrama Okay Leave that be I won t even go into the topic where the women in power state how the dead men s Constitution doesn t apply any, because it is their constitution and that it s time for something NEW Fuckyea.So, we come to the main problem It s manpocalypse and the President decides that the last left man on earth being as they re apparently too late to grab hold of the sperm bank s is being sent on a journey with a Godspeed to you both and whatever you dodon t fuck this up image error Now, I don t know about you, but I d shackle dat man and milk him Something like..well, this One thing I don t get to complain about is the artwork love it I definitely wouldn t let the immature twat set off on a journey guarded by only one person, no matter how spec op they may be shakes head Oh, and while we re at the White House scene, lookie at this tries to suppress her chuckle No, not really D gahahahaha If they did it, you better watch out for what the others do, some srs sh t We also have the s who go all Altair on their breast so they can handle the bow better In the world of powerful firearms and effective cold weapons you chose a..bow Bow chicks become popular in 2012, not in the time of the Last Man so nu huuhhh Don t even get me started on Dr Allison, where the throws herself at developing a breast cancer cure for the last generation livin on this planet Dr If we re going to be the last generation of humans, we should at least be allowed to live our miserable lives in good health sigh D Why am I so angry at this comic and I ve just started It s cause the main character pisses me SO off He s got great responsibility now and he he literally waits for the moment when his guard looks away for him to go make some shi Not only he s totally consumed with seeing his darling did she agree to marry him or not fiance Twat We both know that I resent you dragging me to some attack of the clones doctor when I could be out there looking for the girl I love FINE , he s all too immature Twat Jesus, where the hell do you get off lecturing me like I m some kind of delinquent kid We re practically the same age 355 aka Guard then start acting like it, Yorick AND he s a grammar Nazi sigh he doesn t deserve the harem he s got himself intoI forgot what were the positive things I was gonna point out and the reason it actually got two stars instead of one but..Nevermind Ok so maybe it s just me but I found this series to be incredibly chauvinist I know I m gonna get flamed for it, so many ppl rave about it I APPRECIATED IT but the premise and execution and what the women were doing, boy oh boy I m gonna shut up and not review this Check box d.
