Although some of the word bubbles overlap the other in some pages, The Last Man let's you step into the true meaning of equality, collapse in society, and the true idea of not knowing everything regardless of gender.

A truly great series. well worth the read. Vancouver based artist Pia Guerra's work is very well played, and the writing and concept are brilliant. Recommended.

This might not be the most original story out there but it's fun to read.

Vaughan's get this story well done with good characters and memorable moments.

The artwork is outstanding.

A thought provoking and entertaining Graphic Novel series! Loosely based on Mary Shelley's novel.

Pretty good.

The art is excellent, and the writing isn't overbearing. Being a story focusing on the last man, there is some great female characterization, which is usually missing from many graphic novels. (I only wish it wasn't necessary to have only one male character in order to get some depth for the ladies, too.)

This book is widely recommended, and I cautiously agree. The story is a very interesting concept, but I felt it was a bit lackluster by the end of this first volume. I look forward to reading the rest of the series to see where it ends up.
