Reviews for Y: The Last Man: Motherland Vol 9
Things are winding up now. The great excitement of the unknown has passed and the reader wants everything tied up neatly so they can move on. This volume begins to wrap it all up spilling the beans about the plague, cloning, the Mann family and everything else. Unfortunately it is in a very wordy way. It is hard to think of a different method other than pages and pages of speech bubbles. Maybe an Alan Moore style couple of pages of plain text. It is a necessary evil but still evil especially when you have such great artists on board.
The art is great with some excellent colour schemes adding to the emotion and contrast of the scenes. Some really minor characters from way back get revisited in standalone mini-stories which, although unrelated to our heroes struggle, do fit thematically and will give you a smile once you finally remember who they are. There is a nice comic within a comic too which Yorick gets to read that should bring a smile to your face for both the story, the art and technique. After much thought we are still going to continue the tradition of Thumbs Up! by 365 Graphic Novels
