It's 2002, and a plague of unknown origin has killed all of the male mammals on Earth-all except an amateur escape artist named Yorick Brown and his surly helper monkey, Ampersand. As the last remaining &-chromosome carriers on the planet, Yorick and his pet hold the fate of humanity in their hands. To ensure the survival of the species, they've teamed up with a gun-toting government agent and the world's premier bioengineer to discover the secret behind the plague. But while they ride the rails across a radically transformed America, the man-hating Daughters of the Amazon are right behind them-and an unplanned stopover in the seemingly utopian town of Marrisville, Ohio may mean the end of the line for the Last Man.

Review of 'Cycles (Y: The Last Man, Vol. 2)' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

I actually liked this volume better than the first one. From a story standpoint it's a little more interesting.

It still suffers from using too-common literary references. Some of them irked me a good deal, like seriously, come on, how does an English major not know what "crossing the Rubicon" means? The pop culture references also were a bit cutaneous: Anyone who has seen Back to the Future would have made the connection without an explicit mention.

I had a problem, too, with the excessive use of the adjective "fucking." Yeah, I get it, it's a post-apocalyptic dystopia/utopia (depending on your view...) and people are pissed off all the time. But are there people who really use it in almost every sentence?
