Read full description of the books Y: L'ultimo Uomo, Vol. 2: Cicli:It has been a long time since I read the first volume in the award winning Y: The Last Man series, and it took me some time to fully memorize the previous happenings and plot twists before getting straight on track.
Second volume started quite well, but I did find myself being back to the reasons why this series failed to make a long lasting and positive impression, and why I felt this to be more problematic than entertaining look at the subject of "one man - millions of women".
This, of course, is very heavy on social criticism towards gender issues and equality. And rightly so. It is clear to me that there is quite a lot of research behind the developments that might put some readers on the fence with, but when experiencing negative backlash within the mind, there is Google that helps seeing that the knee jerk reaction might not be as justified as one could think.
Our leading male character, the last man on earth, is not the kind of man you would wish to hold the answers to the mystery of male extinction. Young, naive, arduous and little on the dumber side even with a warm heart. There is too many angry women, I mean seriously. Even one angry woman is a pain in the ass, but having tens of angry women is an annoyance I would not wish to be needing to deal with.
The plot makes very little sense to me at this point. Bunch of angry feminist-scum chasing one man like rabid animals for reasons of stupidity. Or that at least is how it looks at this very moment. I also squint to the idea of plot moving on only due to extremely stupid and illogical decisions each character makes. It gets tiring, and it gets that very quickly if not soon enough. I find this kind of story building to be too easy and lazy, and it only works in horror movies where it is almost an requirement to want that leading character to drop dead. That, I figure, is not what Y: Last Man is trying to achieve.
I have couple volumes on me, and I will give them a read, perhaps I find something else to like than those few humorous dialogues between now and then.
Read information about the authorBorn in Cleveland in 1976, Brian K. Vaughan is the Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster Award-winning writer and co-creator of the critically acclaimed comics series Y: The Last Man, Runaways, and Ex Machina (picked as one of the ten best works of fiction of 2005 by Entertainment Weekly).
Recently named "Writer of the Year" by Wizard Magazine, and one of the “top ten comic writers of all time” by Comic Book Resources, Vaughan’s work has been featured and/or reviewed in countless mainstream media outlets, including The New York Times, MTV, National Public Radio, and feminist magazine Bust, which photographed him for their “Men We Love” issue (don’t ask).
As an undergraduate film student at New York University, Vaughan got his big break as part of Marvel’s Stanhattan Project, a workshop for aspiring comic book writers. In the ten years since, he has written nearly all of the major DC and Marvel characters, everyone from Batman to the X-Men.
In September of 2006, Vertigo released Vaughan’s first original graphic novel, Pride of Baghdad, lavishly illustrated by artist Niko Henrichon. Inspired by an unbelievable true story of four lions who escaped the Baghdad Zoo during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Pride is equal parts anthropomorphic adventure and Animal Farm-like parable about the ongoing conflict in Iraq, and was described as "the best novel so far" about the war by the UK's Telegraph.
Along with his creator-owned work, Vaughan is currently writing The Escapists, a Dark Horse miniseries inspired by Michael Chabon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, as well as a new Doctor Strange limited series for Marvel with artist Marcos Martin.
This summer, the new WGA member/CAA client transplanted his poor playwright wife to Los Angeles, where Vaughan is currently working on the screenplay adaptations of Y and Ex Machina for New Line Cinema, as well as other new creations in film and television.
