In the summer of 2002, a plague of unknown origin destroyed every last sperm, fetus, and fully developed mammal with a Y chromosome-with the apparent exception of one young man and his male pet. This "gendercide" instantaneously exterminated 48% of the global population, or approximately 2.9 billion men. Now, aided by the mysterious Agent 355, the last human male Yorick Brown must contend with dangerous extremists, a hoped-for reunion with a girlfriend on the other side of the globe, and the search for exactly why he's the only man to survive.… (mere)

    The Walking Dead, Volume 01: Days Gone Bye af Robert Kirkman (stephmo)
    stephmo: If you enjoy the sudden "end of the world as we know it" aspect of Y, The Walking Dead is another great series. This time, a virus leaves the majority of the world as zombies. This series concentrates on the basic aspects of survival.

Good art and interesting concept, BUT ... All the men in the world are dead except one and he, naturally, is the main character. The female characters are drawn very male-gaze. All the women are curvy AF with teensy-weensy waists including the one who is starving and hasn't eaten in a week. Racist, transphobic, and sexist statements are made and left unaddressed, and apparently none of the women left are able to do anything useful at all to keep the world going. ( )

A fantastic opening act. Very tense. ( )

Interesting premise. Every guy's dream is to be the last man on earth, and of course when you think about it, it's really a nightmare.

Could've been a great story, but it suffers from the attempt at trying to be too clever. The literary references are ubiquitously known - an attempt at more subtlety would have gone a long way.

Nevertheless, it wasn't a horrible story, and is enjoyable for an hour or so distraction. ( )

As a fairly die-hard fan of Vaughan's work in "SAGA", I have to say I was a bit disappointed.

As post-apocalyptic lit., it doesn't really work. Yorick is kind of infuriatingly oblivious to the fact that he's probably the best chance of saving humanity, and shows absolutely 0 interest in making any kind of self-sacrifice. He's also not insane enough to excuse his (in)actions.

The whole women-run post-apocalyptic society was kind of interesting, though I can't say it rang true for me. (I suppose I technically have to give Vaughan a bit of a pass, as we don't exactly have a ton of real-world models to compare with). I really doubt that America would somehow try to reconstitute itself until the Secretary of Agriculture-cum-POTUS, for starters. Also the whole 'cloning and playing God' bit feels a bit dated to the Bush Jr. era, which I suppose is appropriate, but just so overdone.

The potshot at Hillary Clinton hasn't aged well.

Art was fine but unremarkable.

Compare with SEVENEVES, which actually deals with a lot of these issues, in a much better manner. ( )

Great concept that I wish was expanded more within this novel rather than in subsequent books - coming from reading manga, this falls a bit underdeveloped, lots of potential with a great alternate universe though ( )

The ethics of cutting-edge science are at the forefront of the story as well, as will be, I imagine, a conflict between the emotional and ecological sides of sexuality.

Volume 1 Softcover, Unmanned, is a separate work from the deluxe Book 1 hardcover edition. Book 1 contains the chapters found in Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the softcover editions.
This entry has the title of Volume 1 but the ISBN of Volume 4, so I have chosen to keep it separate from both.
