Y: The Last Man: Kimono Dragons (DC Comics, 2002; #43-48)

Y the Last Man 8.jpeg
  • Yorick and friends are in Japan, searching for his missing simian companion.
  • You know what that means: sex robots, the yakuza, and Canadian pop stars!
  • While Yorick and 355 are having all the fun, Dr. Mann reunites with her mother and starts to get answers about what’s going on.
  • In addition to will-they-won’t-they relationship drama and betrayals, Vaughan weaves an important lesson into this arc: everybody hates ninjas.
  • Guerra, Sudžuka, Marzán, and Zylonol’s art is as focused and expressive as always.
