Watch out for the monkeys.

With Volume 4, Y: the Last Man begins to move towards the endgame. Several issues of this volume are given over to character backstories, and sets up the Big Bad villains for the final act.
So, the thing to like about this volume is how tightly written it's plot is. Things happen in these 12 issues, they happen very quickly, and they change the game for the entire world. The character backstories are also quite good, ratcheting up the development in what was already one of the best 'character' comics I've ever read.
The downside? Quite a few dumb plot points are used to keep the story going. Characters seem to be incompetent because the plot demands it. Fortunately, I don't think this should carry over to the last volume. Here's hoping this series ends on a high note.
