Y: The Last Man, Volume 2: Cycles by Brian K. Vaughan

After far too long a break since the first excursion into Y: The Last Man (see my review of the first volume, Unmanned) I return with volume 2 of this series. I was extremely impressed with the first book, and I had really high hopes for the second one.

After the explosive (literally) conclusion to the first volume, Yorick, Ampersand, Dr. Mann, and Agent 355 head west. The trip is difficult, and in an attempt to save time, the group hops onto a train. Things become difficult, and our heroes land in a small town in Ohio, where things seem a bit too perfect.

Vaughan ratchets the action up further, as more and more pieces of this strange new world come to the fore. The art continues to be excellent as well, as the characters and the situation are depicted accurately, and not too far over the top. The conclusion leaves huge mysteries for the future, and I for one can't wait to get to the next volume. Expect more soon.
