Yorick and his friends are still being pursued by the Amazons which unbeknownst to him includes his sister. They are also being pursued by an Israeli squad with a secret commander. The group are forced to jump off a train and all reunite in a sleepy town Marrisville, Ohio. The town has a secret it is keeping hidden from the rest of the world and when the trio discover it, it provokes mixed responses and emotions.

The Amazon’s finally catch up with them and there is a showdown between Yorick and his sister. The art is nothing too exciting, but good enough to tell the story and serves its purpose. This is a story driven rather than artistic driven series from Vertigo.

Yorick may not be the last man for much longer. Out in space is a spaceship with three astronauts, one a woman and two men. They need to land back on earth and the question is will whatever wiped out all the men work on them or has it moved on/deactivated. No one knows or understands what killed all the males (apart from Yorick and his monkey of course) so they are going to have to risk a landing and hope for the best.

Yorick hates being the last man and is very hopeful that the two men will survive the landing and be able to take on the mantle of repopulating the world’s men. A Russian lady joins the team who made a couple of brief appearances in the second book and I really liked her. The Israeli squad also catches up with them and some more storylines are closed and new paths open up.

This series keeps you guessing with lots of twists and turns, I will definitely be reading more in the future. I love the ideas behind it and the character development so far has been really good.

I really need to give this series a go. It looks fantastic, and I'm pretty sure my library actually has a copy. Woohoo!
