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.

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.
