The latest issue of Y: The Last Man [#30; Part 3 of the 4-part Ring of Truth storyline] revealed to Yorick Brown (and the dutiful readers) how the amateur illusionist (and his pet money Ampersand) survived the plague that killed everything else on Earth with a Y chromosome. For the benefit of those who really want to know, here it is. If you don't want to know...

SERIOUSLY. SHOO. HERE COMES THE SPOILER.

HERE.

IT.

IS.

SPOILERS!



Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read

Monkey shit. That's how they survived. There was a specific mixture of chemicals & such in Ampersand's feculance that acted as an antigen to the plague, and enough of that crap got onto Ampersand and Yorick. Heck, #1 had Ampersand tossing shit across Yorick's apartment. Dr. Mann (the geneticist travelling with Yorick) theorized that the cure for the plague could be inside Ampersand...but Ampersand got stolen by a mysterious assassin.


Y: The Last Man #31 (the conclusion to Ring of Truth) is scheduled to hit shelves on February 16th.

I read the first trade and didn't find enough to make me move onto the rest. But I have a writing question. Highlight text to read

Does this make Yorick the bearer of the mirror-universe AIDS, being effected by a monkey and saving him from infection?

After reading through the pages and pages of Dr. Mann's explanation, once we got to the punchline, I had the exact same reaction as Yorick himself:

"That's a F-ing RIP-OFF!!"

Actually, it was so simple as to be brilliant. Great stuff once again from Brian K. Vaughan.

To Matt T. - it's been a week or so since I read the issue, but I think that your theory was even stated as such. The irony is just perfect, and that's why the explanation works.
