Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-This book reprints issues 6 through 10 of the series. Cycles continues the story of young escape artist Yorick Brown and his pet monkey Ampersand, the only survivors of a mysterious plague that killed all the male mammals on Earth. This title finds Yorick and his pet are under the care of biologist Dr. Mann and Agent 355, an operative of the collapsed U.S. government. The two decide to sneak the somewhat willing Yorick from battle-torn Boston to a laboratory on the West Coast to discover what allowed the pair to survive. After Yorick disguises himself in a gas mask, the three hop a train and find themselves in a strangely idyllic town in rural Ohio. After only a brief rest, the feminist terrorist group Daughters of the Amazon tracks them down. Despite the action sequences, this is not a typical superhero book. In fact, the plague is the only fantastic element. This sense of realism brings accessibility, and it is enhanced by subtle artwork that focuses on the physical and emotional reactions of the characters. And the focus on character is the true strength of the book. Despite his rather daunting quest, Yorick still obsesses over his lost girlfriend and offers a seemingly endless supply of quips and puns. There are brief but interesting explorations of ideas like feminism, war, and male/female relationships. These elements add up to a comic perfect for readers ready to move on to more complex and mature story lines.-Matthew L.

    Fantastic Series Continues

    This second volume in Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's fantastic series finds the trio of Yorick Brown, Dr. Alison Mann and Agent 355 on the run from the bloodthirsty Daughters of the Amazon who want Yorick dead. They find themselves in a small Ohio town where all the Women have a secret and there they will have a final confrontation with the Amazons and Yorick's sister. Hero. This second volume keeps up the quality of the first and slowly begins setting up the series for the many plot twists and turns that are to come.

    Series continues to roll!!

    The book is amazing. Its starting to boter me that I didn't read this when it was originally released. Yorick and his motley crew are in it deep again and its so hard to see a way out of some of the situations they find themselves. Shockers abound. True shocks. Great stuff!
