Oh Me Oh My Oh Why?

So I ended up reading all 60 issues of Y: The Last Man in a couple of days (I was on vacation!) at such a clip that I barely had time to formulate a proper précis on the gender issues contained within those pages.

I just HAD to get to the end!

I can say this: I was fairly disappointed that all the women, and when you consider that practically all the mean have died, that is, for all intents and purposes, EVERYBODY, were your stereotypical Amazon Barbies with impossible waists and chest. Aside from one character, and she came off as a submissive oaf.

But should have I expected any better from a genre built on Übermensch? In this case, YES!

I plan to re-read the entire series so that I can better comment.
