  • Yorick finally makes it to Australia, but he only has twenty-four hours to try to find Beth and deal with a tabloid reporter who gets him on camera.
  • Vaughan also checks in with Hero, who is running errands for her brother.
  • And we get flashbacks to fill in 355’s and Ampersand’s histories.
  • As the story moves into its last third, Vaughan begins to tease answers to questions—but the full picture is still far from clear.
  • Goran Sudžuka joins Pia Guerra; José Marzán, Jr.; and Zylonol for the Hero, 355, and Ampersand issues—I always enjoy his work, and he is at home as part of Y: The Last Man’s stellar art team.
