All the loose ends in the Y: The Last Man series finally start to get tied up. There are still a few more twists and turns left, but it's nice to have some of the storylines finally resolved.

Summary: Yorrick & Co. head to China, following Dr. Mann's mother, and finally learn what - and who - is responsible for the plague that wiped out the male half of humanity. There are also two one-offs, in which we get a little more about Yorrick's mother, and learn what ultimately happened to the Fish & Bicycle Theater Company.Review: Really? REALLY?!? The entire Y: The Last Man series is based on one very cool premise: what would happen if a mysterious plague instantaneously wiped out every male mammal on Earth? While the series has mostly focused on the social rather than the biological implications of the plague, it is science fiction, and they were going to have to get around to giving us an explanation eventually. I spent the past eight volumes dreaming up cool backstories, and when we finally get there, all I get is *this*?!? A lot of pseudoscientific ramblings about morphogenetics and ecological balance, and misuse of the term "evolution" so many times it made my teeth hurt? It's a shame, too, because there was so much potential, and with a few tweaks it could have been really cool, instead of something that made the biologists in the audience die a little inside. Oh, and some stuff happened that wasn't immediately related to biology. Those parts were all quite good, as usual. 3.5 out of 5 stars.Recommendation: If you've come this far in the series, you have to keep reading to know how it all goes down, but be prepared for the explanations you have in your head to be much more interesting and plausible than the real thing.

One aspect of this series is its constant self referral. Brian Vaughn shows a remarkable memory for what has gone before in this story, even minor characters from long ago.The main story continues on its path, with some mysteries revealed and others yet unsolved.

The penultimate volume in the Y: The Last Man series is great fun, with significant revelations hiding behind the turn of each page. The back story of Allison Mann is prominently featured this time around, and it proves to be much more interesting than what we have learned about Yorick Brown and Agent 355 in earlier volumes. Various characters from earlier in the series make return appearances, and the evolving almost-all-female globe begins take on more interesting and convincing shapes. Overall, volume 9 is a great beginning to the inevitable wind-down coming in the tenth and final volume in a uniquely entertaining series.

Can't wait for the finale.

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!
