"Y, The Last Man" appreciation thread [comixxx]

This is the best... anything I have read in a long time. It has a fairly simple premise. Some god awful mysterious plague strikes and kills every single thing on the face of the planet with a y chromosome (rofl) except for Yorick Brown and his pet monkey, Ampersand. What the story does, however, takes every heterosexual male's fantasy of being the last man on Earth and turns it into a nightmare. Several extremist groups think the plague as a sign that uppity, loud-mouthed broads are meant to rule the world and see Yorick's very existence as the biggest threat to the planet. Yorick is not a super hero. He is not trained in the armed forces. He isn't particularly nimble. He's just a post university english major struggling to get by in Brooklyn who makes money on the side by doing escape routines and various magic tricks. He initially sets out on a quest to find his woman mother and sister, and ultimately to find his girlfriend who was in touring Australia when the plague hit. Without giving too much away, nothing really goes as planned and he ends up having the search for his girlfriend put on old and gets sent across the country to figure out why he was unaffected and to find ways to clone him.

I'm going to stop there because I don't want to give too much away. Anyway, the series is up to issue #32 out of god knows how many. The next one comes out on May 4th and they're released monthly. I seriously can't get enough of this stuff and sort of wish I hadn't found out about it yet because waiting from month to month for new issues is going to be torturous.

This is a really good book and I am glad Angel mentioned it here. I first read it while flipping through the Vol. 3 Graphic Novel at Chapters (the spacemen arc), and was interested enough to pick up the rest. I don't regret it.

I like Yorick a lot, and he has the lighter from Preacher which is a nice little metareference.


He drinks a whisky drink!
He drinks a vodka drink!
He drinks a lager drink!
He drinks a cider drink!

Ah, I did not know which graphic novel that was from (I have been meaning to read preacher for so long but I just have never gotten around to it).

Oh, man. Move it higher on your "to-read" list. Preacher is one of the best series I've ever read, and since it's completely finished, you can read it all in one sitting if you so choose to do so.

Bryden was pretty impressed with this comic a while ago.
Mainly because he is a chauvanistic bastard.
