    Back in the United States, the last man on Earth was first unmasked by a supermodel forced to work as a garbage collector after the death of the patriarchy. Years later, what surprising role does this beautiful young woman still have to play in the life of Yorick Brown?

    Do you remember way back in issue number 2, when Yorick was handcuffed to a dump truck by a former supermodel named Waverly? Well this is a story that sort of catches up with her. It tells us how and what she has been doing for all this time. We open to find a couple of Amazons about to kill a woman who makes a living by pretending to be a man for women. Before they can do any real damage, Waverly comes up and stops them. Apparently, Waverly has taken over many of the Amazons just by offering them a job. She offers the cross dresser a job and takes her with her into the sewers. She has to go down and find the bones of an old sanitation worker. At first the new fish is afraid there might be rats, but has it explained to her that rats only live about three years, so there are no more. There she gets a radio call that says there is a stiff in the White house. At the White House it is requested of her to take care of all the funeral arrangements for Yorick's Mother. While she is looking over the corpse she sees a picture of Yorick and begins to freak. All this time she had been telling herself, she only thought she was talking to a real man. That night her and "Bob" are in bed together, she is distracted by the picture she had seen tonight. She had been doubting her sanity, and now because of the picture, she wants to give a fine send off to Yorick's Mother. At the funeral we see that it is as classy as the one given to JFK. After it is over both Bob and Waverly are walking into an alley, when they spot a herd of rats. They see it as something of a miracle, and accept the fact that now they can be more than just "bodies" as they had been before the gendercide.
