Y: THE LAST MAN, Vol. 1: Unmanned by Brian K Vaughan & Pia Guerra

Y: The Last Man, Vol. 1: Unmanned (Y: The Last Man #1) My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've been meaning to read this for ages, and now that I have a 2-in-1 laptop, I finally started this comic book series.

When all the mammals with a Y chromosome die out of the blue, the world is thrown into chaos. All of a sudden, there are corpses everywhere, and the women have lost their marbles. The world's gone crazy--violence is everywhere, there are shortages, the government's in turmoil, and some women are even hunting men.

Too bad the only man (and his monkey) left alive is a whiny loser with a penchant for magic tricks and bravado.

The human race is in trouble, but this guy, a mysterious agent, and a geneticist are on a quest to save it...

I enjoyed this volume, but I have a few problems. Starting with how much I dislike the Y guy because he's annoying af. The Amazons are as sketchy as their motivations. What better way to destroy the patriarchy than to BECOME A NEW VERSION OF IT? O_o As well as the fact that society has fallen because of the tight grip men have on everything... Okay, you know what? The more I write/think about it the more I realise this was probably the point.

I love Saga by Brian K. Vaughn, so I have faith in all of the prickly stuff bothering me balancing itself out.

Besides, I like the cheeky monkey. And I want answers to my many questions. :D
