After a catastrophic event, amateur magician Yorick Brown discovers he's the last man on Earth. Can you imagine? What would all the women do? Heading out with his monkey Ampersand to find his fiancé Beth, Yorick finds himself on the adventure of a lifetime. He encounters a government run solely by women, biker chicks, pirates, astronauts, amazons, convicts, scientists, a special agent assigned to protect him and oh yeah, a ton of women who want to sleep with him. Full of cliffhangers galore, the New York Times bestselling Y: THE LAST MAN by Brian K. Vaughan, writer for Lost and artist Pia Guerra is a fascinating story of what if.
But you don’t have to take my word for it.
“The best graphic novel I've ever read.”—Stephen King
“Provocative. . . . Full of . . . twisty double meanings and thematic echoes that reward careful reading.” —NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
“Pia Guerra's expressive naturalism and Vaughan's razor-sharp plot and dialogue make Y the most emotionally addictive read in comics today.” —WASHINGTON POST
“One of the more interesting comic book series of the last 20 years, up there with Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN and Alan Moore's issues of "SWAMP THING…. The series is a comic-book masterpiece.” —LOS ANGELES TIMES
"Y: THE LAST MAN…. has steadily proved to be one of the best examples of its art form--the monthly comic book…. Fascinating.” —CHICAGO TRIBUNE
So, if you haven’t read it yet, or want to go back and read it as it was originally published, there’s no excuse not to pick up the special $1 edition of issue #1 in stores Wednesday.
