Luckily for you, February is dedicated to Everything Geek. Let's start off, shall we?
Y: The Last Man
What it is: A masterpiece novel that uses graphic images to display its story. 10
Who created it: Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra
But behind every great story, geeky or not, there is a love story of sorts. This time around, Yorick must find his girlfriend Beth who - call it bad luck - is backpacking in the Australian Outback. With every man just suddenly dying, getting to the Island Down Under is no easy task to accomplish.
There are several sub-plots especially surrounding Yorick's "bodyguard", Agent 355 and her ties to secret government agencies. She genuinely wants Yorick to live, and her will is unquestioned throughout the series which I find really endearing. I hate shady characters so to have 355 in the picture is awesome! And the woman can swing a nasty punch!
But for every woman he meets that want him to live, there are thousands who want to see the last man die.
A rich tale of love lost, families shattered, and mysteries lurking around every corner.
Have a great read, geeks!!
