Description

"Funny and scary…an utterly believable critique of society. A+"—THE WASHINGTON POST"The best graphic novel I've ever read."—STEPHEN KING"This year's best movie is a comic book."—ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO"A seriously funny, nuanced fable...Grade A."—ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

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. Written by Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD, EX MACHINA) and with art by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of Yorick Brown—the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he's the last man on earth.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 06, 2003 – Yorick Brown is an escape artist; has a fabulous girlfriend who's traveling in Australia; and possesses a genetic make-up that's allowed him to survive a plague that killed every male being on the planet except for him and his pet monkey. Yorick is the last man on earth, and in the resulting chaos, he must find a way to help save the human race. At least that's what the (now all-female) government thinks. Yorick would prefer to find his girlfriend, but it's hard to get a flight halfway around the world when almost all the pilots and mechanics are gone. It's hard enough to drive down the block, since the streets are jammed with the cars of men who were behind the wheel when the instantaneous plague hit. Furthermore, the entire social fabric has gone to hell, with gun-wielding wives of Republican representatives insisting on getting their husbands' seats and tribes of latter-day Amazons claiming males were meant to die. Since Yorick's mother is a congresswoman, he's protected by secret spies. And his escape skills come in handy when he's trapped first by a marauding garbage-woman and then by his mother, as she tries to keep him from doing anything stupid. Meanwhile, who are the mysterious Israeli soldiers who seem so gratified by the situation, and why is Yorick's sister so intent on joining the Amazons? With clean lines and muted colors, Guerra and Marz n invoke a frighteningly believable future; their vision of the surprise and horror to come is so beautifully ordinary, it's entirely convincing and addictive.

Great Graphic Novel

I read each and every one of this book, this author is very talented and makes the reader think outside the box , makes you think "what if"

One of the Best

Y: The Last Man makes you read for the plot, but you’ll soon find yourself staying for the characters. There are wonderful, loveable, and equally-hateable personalities scattered along here that makes the ride enjoyable. The interaction between characters and the world is very seamless and it’s difficult to pinpoint only a single favorite moment. I highly recommend this to readers young adult and over because the concepts shared can sometimes be a bit mature, but that takes nothing away from its credibility as a masterpiece.
