Volume 1

The first ten issues of the award-winning series written by Brian K. Vaughan (EX MACHINA, Lost) are collected in this new trade paperback! It’s the saga of Yorick Brown – the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome who searches the world for his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.

Volume 2

This volume collects issues #11-23, in which, a Russian spacecraft from the International Space Station returns to Earth carrying three passengers: one woman and two men. Could this be the end of Yorick’s status as the last living male? Plus, the group runs up against a roadblock in Arizona where the female remains of the Sons of Arizona militia have cut the interstate to keep out any vestiges of the U.S. government.

Volume 3

In this collection of issues #24-36 of the Eisner Award-winning series, Yorick’s unbalanced sister, Hero, tracks him to San Francisco, only to find that he has seemingly succumbed to the male-killing plague.

Volume 4

As these stories from Y: THE LAST MAN #37-48 begin, we catch up on the adventures of Yorick’s monkey Ampersand and learn the origin of Agent 355. Plus, Yorick searches for his fiancée in Australia, with deadly results, before heading off to Japan to learn the shocking truth behind who ordered Ampersand’s abduction.

Volume 5

In these stories from issues #49-60, Yorick and Agent 355 prepare for their ultimate quest to reunite the last man with his lost love, while the person, people or thing behind the disaster that wiped out half of humanity is revealed.
