One of the best series of graphic novels available out there!

Really interesting story, and it throws you in right away. I thought it was going to be simply a Science Fiction story, but after reading this first book I think there's something mystical about the death of all men.

It's a lot more violent than I thought it would be, but nothing truly creepy. Just humans being violent and, of course, every man except Yorick dying.

I really look forward to seeing where this will go, but I don't think the series will be a keeper for me. The story is interesting, but the art isn't as grabbing as some other series I like - Sandman, for one.

Something has mysteriously killed off all the men on earth except one--20-something Yorick. He's only interested in finding his girlfriend in Australia, but the US government and man-hating Amazons have other ideas.

Vaughan does an excellent job depicting a world that suddenly consists entirely of women. He doesn't take the idealistic, kumbaya approach, but instead accurately depicts the broad spectrum of personalities that exist among women just as they do among men. The full-color artwork is intriguing, and the depictions of the cities on the east coast of the US are quite accurate. I look forward to reading the rest of the series, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys graphic novels and is intrigued by the concept.
