Two years, a trip from the east coast to the west coast, and multiple murders later, Yorick finally gets laid.

I know this doesn't seem like much of a milestone, but come on. It's been two years and he's the only man alive in a whole world full of horny women and it's THIS GUY who's being faithful to someone he was proposing to over the phone when everyone started dying who is left to repopulate the planet? She's on the other side of the world and it took him a month to get out of NYC!

Sometimes you just have to say no to love and start repopulating the planet, dude.

Other than that, this was a pretty exciting volume with a few surprises and a lot more bloody action as the nuts come out to play. :) Oh, and we think we actually know what caused the gendercide. :)

Yorick, Agent 355 and Dr. Mann have finally reached Dr. Mann's lab. It has been two years since all creatures with a Y chromosome, except for Yorick and his pet monkey, Ampersand, were wiped off the face of the earth. In this volume, they are coming closer to finding out what caused this “plague” and why Yorick and Ampersand were spared. Also, in this issue, we get some background on Yorick's sister, Hero, and an update on where she's been since they met up after the plague.

This is one of the better issues of the series, I think. I don't think there were really any parts that I weren't interested in. I really liked this one. ( )

Vaughan and co. manage to keep the story going nicely from volume to volume. I'm really enjoying the series, and am devouring the books in one sitting. ( )

Though it begins with a relative lull (and some sex), the fifth and longest story arc from Y: The Last Man seems to accelerate the comic's already feverish pace. It has been more than two years since a flash plague killed all males except for Yorick Brown. Now he and his monkey; the scientist Alison Mann, whose research might enable keeping future males alive; and agent 355, their escort, have reached California, where the data Mann lost in Boston is backed up. Yorick's sister, Hero, still tracks him and is still, unfortunately, affected by the Daughters of the Amazon brainwashing she underwent that tells her to kill, not save, him. Rogue former colleagues of 355 are after her to get an amulet they believe has special powers, and a ninja is out to steal Yorick's monkey, Ampersand. Flashbacks reveal more about Hero and begin disclosing the fate of Yorick's fiancee in Australia. Oh, and Yorick gets sick with symptoms like those that killed the other males. Busy, busy, white-knuckle stuff: the series just gets better.

This series continues to be so incredibly strong, I can't recommend it enough.

In this collection, we find out more about Hero as she struggles to "deprogram" herself from her past as a member of The Amazons. Also, Yorick meets another woman who shares the same name as his missing girlfriend, Beth, and establishes an instant connection.

Probably the biggest part of The Ring of Truth is that we found out why Yorick and Ampersand survived the plague. Well, sort of. We're still unaware of what caused it so it could only be a guess on the part of Dr. Mann. I was sort of satisfied with the revelation; not blown away. If anything, it makes me a little weary of what originally caused it. I hope I'm not let down. ( )
