Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up This series is based on the premise that a mysterious plague has wiped out all of humanity save for one man, the aggressively average Yorick Brown, and his pet monkey, Ampersand. Where some writers could have easily capitalized on the stereotypes of such an exhausted male fantasy, Vaughan creates complex situations; imaginative scenarios; and multidimensional, realistic, and likable characters. In Motherland , which collects single volumes 49-54, he uncovers a barrage of nail-biting secrets, such as the possible source of the original plague, the origins of vicious ninja Toyota, and the loyalties of Rose the Australian spy/lover of Dr. Mann. Further, readers find that Yorick is not in fact the world's last man and that, despite warring armies of Amazons, violent preteen gangs, and the proliferation of male-impersonating prostitutes, human relationships and a desire to create prevail. As one character prophetically claims, "Artists are supposed to hold up a mirror to society, but ours could be a...f-ed up funhouse mirror!" That is exactly what Vaughan has done here and with shimmering results.-Shannon Peterson, Kitsap Regional Library, WA

    The penultimate collection is a pleaser!!

    As the series races to its conclusion, this collection showcases so many different aspects of the world that now exists. So many of the mysteries are coming to a head and then there are two great issues involving charcaters that we met previously. SO good! Vaughan and Guerra have created such a world, not just a story. Great stuff!
