time is now. Suddenly, and without warning, a mysterious plague
kills every living living creature on the planet with a Y
chromosome... for those of you who failed Biology, that means
no more men. Except two. Yorick Brown and his pet monkey are
the only male creatures to have survived. They now inhabit
a very different world, and their unique status is far from
privileged. They find themselves on the run from a coven of
Amazons who want Yorick dead... and one of these women is
his own sister...
Yorick on the move again as he constantly tries to outwit
the various groups trying to track him down. But he has help
in the form of a mysterious individual who is working for
the government and a doctor involved with cloning.
collection sees him taking refuge in an almost utopian village
that is run by a group of women with a secret to hide. This
volume reminded me of the TV drama Last Train, where
the few London survivors of a nuclear holocaust discover a
strange village in the middle of nowhere that seems too good
to be true.
like I mentioned with the last volume, the writer cleverly
slips in the odd homage to a movie. And again just when you
think you've spotted it, and you think he isn't going to mention
the fact, Brian K. Vaughan steps in to show he was there ages
before you. Last time it was the Nazi monkey in Raiders
of the Lost Ark. This time it's the scene where Marty
wakes up in bed to be confronted by his younger mother in
Back to the Future.
addition to the main story there are a few pages added in
at the back of this collection of rough sketches of different
characters by Pia Guerra. I didn't realise before, but his
drawings - uninked - have a Disney quality to them.
