"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Y: The Last Man, Vol. 10: Whys and Wherefores

Book #48 on my list this year was Y: The Last Man, Volume 10: Whys and Wherefores, which is unfortunately the last of what was a quite entertaining The Last Man series. Wikipedia has a good overview here and a there's a nice long piece on IGN here (both are full of spoilers).

Why I Read This Series
I think my interest in this series originated from a review I read in Entertainment Weekly. That lead me to looking up more online where I was impressed by the rabid fans and the consistently glowing reviews from other sources I respect (Jonathan Lethem, NPR, Time, Salon, etc). Once I read Vol. 1 I was hooked.

Volume 1
Volume 2
Volume 3
Volume 4
Volume 5
Volume 6
Volume 7
