Summary
"In the summer of 2002, a plague of unknown origin destroyed every last sperm, fetus, and fully developed mammal with a Y chromosome, with the apparent exception of one young man ... Now, aided by the mysterious Agent 355, the human male Yorick Brown must contend with dangerous extremists, a hoped-for reunion with a girlfriend on the other side of the globe, and the search for exactly why he's the only man to survive."--Book 1, Back cover

Review
  • The latest adventures of Yorick Brown, last man on earth, consist of one standoff after another. Yorick stands off girlfriend Beth--in his dreams. Then Yoricks sister, Hero, and the only baby boy on earth stand off a gang of amazon archers. Then Yoricks guard, agent 355, stands off the mysterious ninja who has been hot on Yoricks heels all along. Then geneticist Alison Mann, Yoricks personal researcher, stands off her father over Yorick. (Her father? Yoricks not the only last man?) In the end, Yorick's off to Paris and, he hopes, Beth. A terrific, tangential flashback story rounds out the volume. -- Ray Olson (Reviewed 04-01-2007) (Booklist, vol 103, number 15, p37)
  • Gr 10 Up –This series is based on the premise that a mysterious plague has wiped out all of humanity save for one man, the aggressively average Yorick Brown, and his pet monkey, Ampersand. Where some writers could have easily capitalized on the stereotypes of such an exhausted male fantasy, Vaughan creates complex situations; imaginative scenarios; and multidimensional, realistic, and likable characters. In Motherland , which collects single volumes 49-54, he uncovers a barrage of nail-biting secrets, such as the possible source of the original plague, the origins of vicious ninja Toyota, and the loyalties of Rose the Australian spy/lover of Dr. Mann. Further, readers find that Yorick is not in fact the world’s last man and that, despite warring armies of Amazons, violent preteen gangs, and the proliferation of male-impersonating prostitutes, human relationships and a desire to create prevail. As one character prophetically claims, “Artists are supposed to hold up a mirror to society, but ours could be a…f-ed up funhouse mirror!” That is exactly what Vaughan has done here and with shimmering results.–Shannon Peterson, Kitsap Regional Library, WA --Shannon Peterson (Reviewed November 1, 2007) (School Library Journal, vol 53, issue 11, p159)
