It’s the story that had to happen: the lesbian love boat arc of Y: The Last Man.
Yorick Brown, the sole survivor of a plague that wiped males of all species off the face of the earth, is off to Japan to find his pet monkey, Ampersand, who holds the secret to curing the outbreak. With him are longtime companions Dr. Allison Mann (I wonder if the pun is intended) and the still-mysterious Agent 355.
After Yorick is discovered to be a stowaway on a converted cruiseliner by the ship’s captain, he is quickly taken in, and true to form he ends up quickly developing feelings for her.
Meanwhile, the simmering heat between the openly gay Dr. Mann and Agent 355 finally boils over.
Then the Australian navy shows up and all hell breaks loose.
If you’re a comic book junkie then Y: The Last Man is what you’ve been jonesing for.
Writer Brian Vaughan and artists Pia Guerra — a B.C. girl — and Goran Sudzuka never seem to disappoint and with Girl On Girl they’ve delivered another classic.
