Y: THE LAST MAN is the gripping saga of Yorick Brown, an unemployed and unmotivated slacker who discovers that he is the only male left in the world after a plague of unknown origin instantly kills every mammal with a Y chromosome. Accompanied by his mischievous monkey and the mysterious Agent 355, York embarks on a transcontinental journey to find his girlfriend and discover why he is the last man on Earth.Now, the entire critically acclaimed Y: THE LAST MAN saga written by Brian K. Vaughan, one of the writers of LOST, is collected into a series of oversized, hardcover editions. In this third volume, Yorick's unbalanced sister Hero tracks him to San Francisco, only to find him seemingly succumbing to the male-killing plague after losing his still-unused engagement ring to agents of the Setauket Ring. Plus, Yorick, Agent 355 and Dr. Mann ship out across the Pacific to Japan in pursuit of Yorick's stolen monkey Ampersand, whose innards may hold the key to mankind's future
This snazzy hardcover edition collects issues 24-36 of Yorick Brown's post-apocalyptic story. Hardly a hero, Yorick was an aspiring magician with only a few tricks up his sleeve when a plague struck the planet, killing every male, but miraculously sparring this smart-aleck and his pet monkey, Ampersand. In this chapter of the story, Yorick is still searching for his lost girlfriend, while his sister, who became involved with an Amazonian gang who wants him dead, follows her brother to the west coast. After creating this original and addictively thought-provoking comics series, Brian K. Vaugh went on to write for the hit TV series LOST.
