Kimono Dragons

Finished part 8. Y: The Last Man volume 8: Kimono Dragons by Brian K Vaughn to be exact. We finally get to Japan! 355 and Yorick go one way to try to get Ampersand while Dr. Mann and her girlfriend Rose, the one-eyed Aussie spy, go to Dr. Mann's mother's lab. 355 and Yorick get captured by some Yakuza and finally talk. Seriously talk. It was refreshing. Dr. Mann gets a backstory, as well as Alter, the Israeli that tried to kill Yorick waaaay back in the third collection. a 5.

it is getting harder and harder to talk about the series without giving away spoilers for the previous volumes! so much in these later books refer to the previous ones that i really can't say too much. Since i just had Breaking Dawn spoiled for me by some dumb Amazon reviewer I'm admiring you awesome bloggers more and more! somehow you manage to make me really want to read things without giving things away. continue all the great work.

  1. I'm still waiting for the next installments from my library. I may just have to break down and buy them. I really wish they were cheaper. ;-P

  2. that is the problem with long graphic novel series. If you're buying individual issues as they come out it probably ends up being more expensive overall but it's hard for me to shell out 10-20 bucks for 1/12th of a story! I mean, i love the Sandman series but have been buying them 1 or 2 at a time from McKay's or from bookstore's on coupons. i am still missing 7-9!
