Read This NOW! = Y: The Last Man


“Y: THE LAST MAN, winner of three Eisner Awards and one of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling comic books series of the last decade, is that rare example of a page-turner that is at once humorous, socially relevant and endlessly surprising.”

Y: The Last Man is a comic book, which you can also purchase in graphic novel/collected edition form, about the last man on earth, Yorick Brown, and his male pet monkey. They are the only two male mammals tht survived some sort of worldwide plague. He is literally the LAST GUY on the planet! Earth is in shambles, for the most part, as women have begun to try to rebuild civilization and cope with this disaster. Yorick is on a journey to try to find his fiance` in Australia, but he is a political weapon, and many people try to hunt him down along the way. That is just the tip of the iceberg: this series is amazing.

This comic is crazy, and it’s not kid stuff either. It was put out by DC’s VERTIGO imprint, which basically means that it is for mature readers: nudity, language, violence, you get the picture. It is really good, with a great deal of twists and turns, amazing artwork, witty dialogue, and biting cliff-hangers. Brian K. Vaughan is one of the greatest comic book writers ever, and this series truly attests to that.

I’ve read a great deal of comics, but I’m no comic book geek. I remember hearing about this comic and seeing it years and years ago, but I never got into it. Why? I am a fool. Now that I’m almost done with it, I’ve got to say, I’m thoroughly impressed. This is some really great stuff, and I think any mature intellectual individual will appreciate it. It is not short of action, and it is being made into a movie (eventually). Anyway, I’m not gonna recommend some random garbage for you to check out; this stuff is legit. Trust me; or trust them: “Funny and scary…an utterly believable critique of society. A+”

“The best graphic novel I’ve ever read.”

“This year’s best movie is a comic book.”

“A seriously funny, nuanced fable…Grade A.”

^^ Don’t miss out… It runs  60 issues, or 10 collected editions. You can buy them here:

You can also download it via torrents, but I don’t do that because I like holding the book and reading it; I don’t want to read a comic book for hours on my computer screen. However, if that floats your boat, get the whole thing for free here:

Here on go easy, I give you the links. YOU, already know.
