I read the first 3 volumes a couple years back, and thought it was a very well put together story for an audience that didn't include me. This volume is on this year's Hugo ballot, which is the only reason I read it.
Turns out this is amazing. The art was always great, the writing was always solid, but now I'm digging the narrative so much I may have to go back and read the 2 volumes I skipped.
okay. so it's Brian K. Vaughan doing a utopia where all the men have died--oops, did I say utopia, I meant to say dystopia where all the men died--except one. sooooo I was expecting more Edmund Cooper than Margaret Atwood, more Gender Genocide than The Handmaid's Tale. so far, it's kind of a mix of both, plus Designated Survivor, and a pinch of The Stand (the scary pinch). I like it, and it feels right to be reading it right now. bonus: the references to The Culper Ring, and what that was, make me want to get to the nonfiction book I have stashed called Our Man In Charleston.
