death and destruction. This time around,
the acts of a drug-dealer are paralleled with the story of a mysterious disease
that swept over an alternate Earth. No
one is able to escape the effects of the highly contagious virus, except for
one man and his newborn daughter. As
they struggle to survive this plague, the man and his daughter believe to have
finally found some solace, only to have it dashed away. However, one should always be careful as to
whom they turn away.
picture of the follies of the human condition.
Here we have a father who only wants to keep his family safe, but ends
up just making things worse at every turn.
And it doesn’t help matters any that the world has pretty much become
mob rule with only the wealthiest being able to secure the supplies necessary
to sustain a prolonged hibernation away from the contagion. There’s no more time to think of others
because as soon as you’re exposed to the virus, you’re as good as dead. So, now we have a Y: The Last Man situation,
where this man seems to be the only one immune to the virus, that is until his
daughter was born. Now with one less
worry on his mind, the man only needs to think of the basics in order for him
and his daughter to survive. And here’s
where we get to see how far this good man is willing to go in order to keep his
daughter safe. The issue does raise some
good points about how death isn’t fickle and McKenzie really drives it home
