Cannonball 48: Y: The Last Man, Volume VII: Paper Dolls by Brian K. Vaughan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another of the weaker volumes in the series, but this one at least moves the story along a bit.

In this volume, Yorick & Friends stop to refuel in Australia before continuing on to Japan in search of Ampersand. This allows Yorick the opportunity to search for his fiancee, Beth Deville, who was in Australia when he last communicated with her.

We also learn a little more about Agent 355’s history, which isn’t as compelling as it could be, in my opinion. It’s a pretty standard story of childhood trauma that eventually turned her into a hardened soul who could only be softened by the right people. Meh and meh.

This volume also sees Yorick’s existence revealed to the rest of the world. Ehhh, once again, it doesn’t do much to propel the story forward, and ultimately becomes more of a MacGuffin than anything else.

But since the series overall is so innovative, it’s easy to overlook a few less-than-great volumes.
