Y-The Last Man


Recommended Posts

Of all the Vertigo titles on the go at the moment, I'd have to say that Y-The last man is probably the one most deserving of it's MR tag. If you don't read YTLM, it's a simple concept - all the men on earth have died except one guy and his monkey. The latest storyline, 'Safeword' has dealt with S&M in a very well done way. Unlike Garth Ennis overly humourising the element, he actually tied it into a storyline which has advanced the plot in a surprising way, while at the same time being faithful to Dom/sub scenario without making it seem too over the top - althoughthe last page of the first issue was something of a shock.

Do you like the series? What are your thoughts on it?

Pushing the boundaries again...

If anyone is still reading this, what are their thoughts on the latest development - full frontal male nudity?

The way this was done, I think this is a first, but I'm not sure...it was certainly less abstract than in Watchmen, which was handled differently.

I'm shocked that's still up on DC's website!

Once that series is over I'm going to buy all of the trades, so I can read them all at once.

You know, I have a friend who watched the Lost DVDs in a couple of weeks and said he couldn't imagine waiting week to week for it. I likened it to waiting month to month for Y The Last Man. I've been doing it since the beginning and it is the single most consistent comic book run I have ever had the pleasure of reading from the beginning. That includes Preacher.
