Graphic Novel Club August: Y the Last Man Vol. 1

Oh yeah. I run a comic shop in Durham, North Carolina.
Once a month on the first Thursday, a group of us meets and talks about a book we all read.

This month the group collectively chose Y The Last Man Volume One.

Written by Brian K. Vaughan; Art by Pia Guerra and José Marzá, Jr.; Painted Cover by J.G. Jones

"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."

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'sthe last man on earth.
