Review: I bought the first paperback volume of this series with fairly low expectations and largely because I found it cheap. I was pleasantly surprised to find engaging characters, an intriguing plot treated in some unexpected ways, and good artwork. So I invested in another couple of volumes. Had I known how well the series was going to develop, I would have bought it all in these deluxe hardback editions. As the series progresses, it gets better and better. It's a simple basic premise, the death of all male creatures bar two, a young man and his pet monkey, that could have been handled in some very obvious, and very crass, ways. To the creators' credit, it never is. It's handled with tact, wit, intelligence, and an admirable lack of the usual comic-book sexism. The twists and turns of the plot are full of genuine surprises, usually character-driven. The little group that accumulates around the last man all have fascinating back-stories that are explored with dexterity and woven into the central narrative. The result is that it's not just the underlying mystery as to who or what caused the death of all the other males that keeps the reader coming back for more, it's genuine engagement with these people and all their human foibles, frailties, humour, hopes, fears, foolishness, regrets, courage, pain, love, and dreams. The artwork also grows on the reader as the series progresses. To begin with, it seems perfectly adequate, though perhaps not particularly outstanding. The more you read, however, the more you realise just what a vital part the deceptively simple, clean, clear style plays in carrying the story along. Like all good comic books, it's the combination of writing and graphics that makes the whole work so well. And work it does. For me, this series joins such keynote works asWatchmen andSandman as one of the few genuinely outstanding 'proper' novels in the medium, demonstrating what a great medium for storytelling the graphic medium can be in the right hands. Wonderful stuff!

Review: When this series was on the stands, I sort of look a look and never really got into it. Sure, the art was good, it was sort of an original idea, but honestly it didn't grab me. Cut to years later and either my tastes changed or my curiosity got the better of me; either way I am glad. Having had the series suggested and recommended to me by numerous people, I saw Deluxe Edition Book One on sale on Amazon and decided "What the Hey" and ordered it. I was not even a quarter of the way through it when I ordered the other four books. It has been a VERY long time since I have found a series where my main disappointment at the end of a book is that it is over. I devoured these, and then at the end of Book Five had to sit there and go "Awww, man...". The story reaches an end, and it is a good one, but I found myself still wanting time with those characters. I wanted to know what happened to so many of them, and how they turned out. The snippets and hints were not enough. The writing will draw you in. The art will keep you there page after page. Trust me: If you are going to get one of these compilations, just do yourself a big favor and get all five at once.
