After leaving Marrisville in the last issue, issues 11-23 follow the trio on there journey to California. I will say it's a little ridiculous that they haven't gotten there yet, considering the dialogue indicates that one issue = one month, but this is a minor flaw. Along the way, Yorick, 355, and Dr. Mann meet a number of communities of woman, and see how everyone is keeping up after the gendercide. This focus on the side stories has given this series a much wider sense of scope and a number of fascinating characters. Even better, Ampersand is no longer causing tons of problems for the trio, which was my biggest problem with the first volume.
I can't wait to see where the series goes from here.
This high-quality, full-sized, hardcover collects the third and fourth volumes of the 10-volume series. For collectors, these 'deluxe' editions are certainly worth waiting for, and at about the same price as buying both TBPs, there is very little to discourage you here. Removable dust covers, larger format, high-quality pages, and a little extra artwork are nice, but throw in the little bonus that each of these editions has at the end (the written script for one of the episodes in this one) and you've got a real treat for "Y" enthusiasts. Personally, I'm glad I waited on this series for the release of these deluxe editions.
Deluxe edition volume 2 starts out with One Small Step, where Yorick, Dr. Mann, and Agent 355 learn about possible male survivors on the International Space Station that are about to crash land in the Mid-West. This story arc introduces a couple of new characters, including a sharp-shooting Russian that promises to play a role in future volumes, and strengthens the role of Alter, the Israeli special ops commander that has some seriously big plans for Yorick. "One Small Step" maintains the same 'on-the-run' feel that the series started with, and lives up to readers' expectations. [5-stars]
The second story arc in this volume is "Comedy and Tragedy", where we follow a troupe of actors trying to make their mark on the new world by putting on a play about (You guessed it!) the last man on the planet. This story didn't do too much for me personally, but had its moments. It did introduce a shadowy new ninja-like character that I'm sure we'll learn more about in future volumes, but remains a complete mystery at the end of this one. [3-stars]
This volume finishes with perhaps the most popular story arc in the "Y" library, Safeword. Here the story takes a serious turn toward the dark side with some frankly unsettling scenes of mental and physical torture, disturbing hallucinations and flashbacks, and plenty of bloodshed. The story relates Yorick's stay with 355's old friend 711, as well as the gang's travels across Arizona, where they meet another F'd-up militia group that needs dealing with. Very exciting and much more serious-seeming than previous story arcs, "Safeword" grabs you and never lets go the whole way through. Some of the best writing and illustrating I've ever seen. [5-stars]
Overall, this is a more than pleasing edition in the "Y" series, and shouldn't be missed by any fan of graphic novels. Watch and be mesmerized as Vaughan reveals Yorick's adventures through a world full of almost exclusively hot girls. Highly Recommended.
