"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,” NPR"A seriously funny, nuanced fable.... Grade A."—ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLYY: 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.

I really like the first trade of t...
