Honestly, this was so bad I might stop reading Saga because if this is the kind of ending that the author likes I'm going to save myself the trouble now.
Many of you would think I'm cheating because I didn't wrote a review for each part, but... man! I'm a bit tired! I read all 5 books in a week. A few hours before sleeping. Sometimes I was so tired but I couldn't stop reading. The story is THAT gripping!
Anyway, as you might already know, the book is about a world that is being habitated only by women given that a plague killed every mammal with a Y chromosome. Meaning, every man, dog, bull, etc on Earth is dead... Except for "master" escapist, Yorik Brown and his manle monkey, Ampersand.
Why Yorik and Ampersand are alive? Whay the plague didn't kill them? Well, you won't find out up until the 5th book, but that doesn't mean there's nothing on the road, isn't it?
I'm fascinated on how the writer managed to create a world were only women rule. There's the afraid, confusion, and then fractioning.
Afraid? Well, the current way of living is gone forever.
Confusion? How would the femenine gender manage to go on, when most of the labor used to be made by men!
Fractioning? Intersting how there's several group of women such as the Daughters of the Amazon, or the Army Gals from Israel, that form groups of women gathered by common believe. VERY interesting!
The action, character development, interesting points of view about life, machismo and other stuff is right there and written beautifully. I'mpossible not to laugh or feel angry when stuff happen. Those emotions can only be get on a comics when the writing is damn good.
The art also do it's part. The covers made by JG Jones are amazing, and the inside art by Pia Guerra is also perfect for the story. It goes hand and hand. Just lovely!
Every book comes with a good set of extras, going from sketches on Volume 1 (and 2, I believe), and the other volumes contain the scrip for one of the chapters.
When I end reading the series, I felt... Not sure how I felt, but I do know that I felt I just read one of the most amazing stories ever written, and I don't say that lightly.
If you want to read a comics, but not necessarily a Super-hero comic, I higly recommend these books. They have a begining, a resolution and an end. There's no more after the fith. Is all over. And that makes me love the series even more.
As for these deluxe hardcover editions, I totally recommend them. High-quality paper, some additional artwork, large format, dust jacket, and bonus material make these editions must have for collectors and simply better than the trade paperbacks. When you consider that these are really two volumes in one, they actually come out cheaper too, so there is really no reason why you wouldn't go with these deluxe editions if you're trying to decide between the two.
If you are into SHTF stories from alternate perspectives, then this is a must read.
If you wanna see an adventure about a boy & his monkey, then this is a must read.

I wish that other comic book series that are genuinely interesting, engaging and well-crafted got the opportunity this one had to play out to a proper conclusion. This is sadly rare in a medium still regarded by many comic book companies as disposable. Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in producing Y: The Last Man, one of the few truly great graphic novels, among the best I've ever read, and I've read a lot, having been a comic book reader since the early 1960s.
A wonderfull ending.
Parts of it you could possibly see coming, and others, just come out of no where.
If you haven't read these books, get them
