As I was driving into work this morning, I saw a woman waiting to cross the street holding a Y: THE LAST MAN trade paperback! She was totally "normal" looking and not someone who I'd label as a comic reader. I love seeing regular folk reading comics!! I took it as a sign from the Comic Gods to promote the book here.
Y: THE LAST MAN - WHAT IT'S ABOUT:
"Yorick Brown is an escape artist 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. 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...."
This title seems to be the "New Sandman", meaning the lastest Vertigo book that girlfriends will read and actually like! heh.
There's currently 8 collected volumes available now (Vol 9 coming out in April). Or you can pick up the monthly single issues! Check it out at your local comic store, Lisa's Store or here on Amazon.
