Booklist Review

The last panel of Cycles BKL N 15 03 revealed that, although Yorick Brown is the last man alive on Earth, two other live men are on a space station. Their return to terra firma would take some heat off Yorick, who, in the third Y: The Last Man collection, remains in the custody of secret U.S. agent 355 while Israeli commandos pursue him. He, 355, and cloning scientist Allison Mann head for the decontamination facility near which the astronauts intend to land. They are joined en route--near-fatally for 355-- by a Russian agent, who comes in handy when the Israelis show up and snatch Yorick. Only after negotiations, ammo exchanges, and Yorick's own heroics does 355 re-take him. This hunk of Yorick's odyssey ends with a surprise as nasty as the Cycles surprise was hopeful. A pendant featuring Yorick's pet monkey, Ampersand, and a peripatetic theatrical company fill out the volume; drawn by a different, slightly more polished artist than the main story's Pia Guerra, it is every bit as well written by Vaughan. --Ray Olson Copyright 2004 Booklist
