Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

The saga of Yorick Brown, the last man on Earth, continues in PAPER DOLLS, writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra’s award-winning VERTIGO series. In addition to catching up on the adventures of Yorick’s monkey Ampersand (whose body holds the key to stopping the male-killing plague) and telling the origin of Agent 355, PAPER DOLLS chronicles Yorick and 355’s search for Yorick’s fiancee Beth in Australia — a search that yields a large dose of unwanted publicity for the Last Man, and deadly consequences for those he cares for!

Mana recenzija (pārdomas)/My (thoughts) review

Par nožēlu jāsaka, ka Y: The Last Man sērija turpina sarūgtināt un savā kvalitātē kristies. Strauji tuvojas pēdējais voljums, un šaubos, vai vismaz maz cerību, ka gaidāma kāda izmaiņa pozitīvā virzienā.

Tātad Joriks, aģente 355 un Dr. Manna turpina ceļu Ampersanda atgūšanai, bet, pirms turpināt ceļu uz Japānu, Austrālijas militāristu pavadībā (ar zemūdeni) piestāj Sidnejā. Par spīti loģikai un racionālam saprātam Joriks izlūdzas 355 pavadībā iespēju meklēt viņa līgavu Betu. Kā arī uz mirkli pabijām pie citas Betas, ar kuru notikušas interesantas pārmaiņas (9mēneši), bet uztraukumam nav pamata, jo viņa ir drošā Varones uzraudzībā.

Viss jau it kā +/- būtu labi, bet bez tagadnes laika līnijas, kura arī nav ideāla, jo skaitās, ka pēc gandrīz visu vīriešu nāves pagājuši 3 gadi, bet dusmas sanāk par to, ka lasītājs(konkrētāk, es) to būtu varējis zināt?! bez šādas priekšā teikšanas, ik pa brīdim ir, protams, interesanti, bet drusku par garu esoši atmiņu stāsti gan par aģenti 355 un viņas apmācību, gan Ampersandu un viņa nokļūšanu pie Jorika. Kopā salikts stāsts nešķita vienmērīgi plūstošs, bez aizķeršanas.

Arī joki vairs nešķiet tik labi, kā sērijas sākumā. Vismaz Paper Dolls noslēgumam nebija ne vainas, un liels paldies par to Ampersandam. :)

***************************************

Sadly I have to say that Y: The Last Man series keeps disappointing and its quality drops again. The last volume is rapidly approaching and I have my doubts or at least very little hope for big improvement.

So, Yorick, agent 355 and Dr. Allison Mann continue their trip to get Ampersand back, but before they go to Japan they rest for a while in Australian’s submarine in Sidney. Despite all logic and rational thinking Yorick whines so long that with agent 355 agrees to search with him his bride Beth before they leave. Also we quickly visit another Beth with whom a surprising changes has happened (9months), but no need to worry because she has Hero’s company.

Everything could be +/- ok but besides the not so perfect present time line (which isn’t perfect because it’s supposed to be three years after almost every men died but I’m a bit angry about that that there is very little what tells you how much time goes by without someone telling you) from time to time there are interesting but a bit too long flash backs and background stories both about agent 355 and her training, and about Ampersand and how he got to Yorick in the first place. When everything is put together the story has its bumps in the road and it isn’t flowing smoothly.

Also the jokes don’t seem to be that good as in the first few volumes. At least the very ending of Paper Dolls were not that bad thanks to Ampersand. :)

    A male-killing plague? Well, that’s scary. The synopsis sounds interesting, but so sorry the actually story left a lot to be desired. Hopefully the last volume will make up for these so-so ones.
