Title: Y the Last Man: Vol 8 Kimono Dragon and Vol 9 Motherland
Author: Brian K Vaughn and Pia Guerra

I CANNOT wait for this series to be done, but as a dedicated reader I’m committed to finishing it.

However, I will say that the series has taken a nice turn back to the positive. Instead of playing up the stereotypical extremes of the women – eg can’t do anything or are raging lesbians, we start to get a clearer picture of why the plague that killed off those with the Y chromosome happened and how it might be reversed.

I’m still perturbed by comments in the book that suggest in the years since the plague happened that women haven’t been able to clean it up. At one point, one character notes they cannot take a certain road because it’s still a graveyard for cars and bodies that were there when the men died. I’m supposed to believe that women, in the five or so years, haven’t been able to do anything to correct that? Unbelievable!

For those of you who enjoy the series, what is it that is most intriguing? Because I’m simply not getting it.
