Yorick Brown, the last man on Earth, has finally reached the
country where his fiancée Beth has been stranded since
the male-killing plague struck more than three years ago.
Unfortunately, the visit is just a stopover - the trail that
has led Yorick and his companions (government operative Agent
355 and biochemist Dr. Allison Mann) to the shores of Australia
continues on to Japan, where Yorick's pet monkey Ampersand
- the only other male mammal to survive the plague, and the
possible key to its cure - has been taken. Before
pursuing Ampersand north, however, Yorick has a brief window
of time to find Beth in the remains of Sydney. But his search
also provides a chance at the story of a lifetime for one
muckraking journalist - a story whose consequences may be
graver than anyone could guess...
the seventh collection in the Y: The Last Man series
of graphic novels. In this volume the main narrative doesn't
move ahead that much. The two main threads see Yorick and
Co. trying to avoid a photojournalist who is on to them, and
Hero and Beth - the other Beth that seduced Yorick, not his
fiancée - have to escape from a group of religious
nuts who believe that Beth's child is the second coming. In
this collection we are treated to a number of back stories
that help to piece together some of the characters histories.

growing up and being enlisted into the organisation. It also
explains how Yorick originally adopted Ampersand, and there
is a hint of an explanation as to why the two of them were
immune to the plague.
are some great edge-of-your-seat moments too. There was one
chilling moment in this collection, with Agent 355 and the
journalist, where I thought things were about to take a dramatic
change... for the worse. And the panels where Beth and Hero
are attempting to escape from the crazy nun and her followers
is nail biting stuff.
