The final volume of a great series

This is the 5th, and last, collected volume of one of the greatest illustrated series ever written "Y the Last Man," and I can't imagine a better ending. We rejoin Yorick, Agent 355, Ampersand, and Dr. Mann as they continue their quest to find Yorick's missing girlfriend and discover a way to preserve the human race.

And the mysterious ninja that's been trailing the team? We find out who she is and who she works for. And Yorick may not be the last man left alive after all.

I kid you not when I say that this is one of the VERY best comic series/ graphic novels I have ever read. I got really involved in it and it's to Brian K. Vaughan's credit that he not only succeeded in telling a rich, complex tale and wrapped it up nice and tight, he succeeded with flying colors in creating a world populated with wonderful, deep, memorable characters in a story that is so much more than what you see on the surface.

This was the first comic book i read that didn't feature a superhero and it is now my all time favorite. There shouldn't be a delay in picking this up(and the previous 4 hardcovers) if you have even an inkling of interest. You will not be disappointed.
