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...







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.

Actually, #8 is a really good jumping on point for Iron Fist. It's the start of a new arc, and there are only one or two story points from the previous arc that are still important, and they explain those in the issue.
