In Brian K Vaughan’s Y: The Last Man, something has caused all of the men in the world to die—all the men, that is, except Yorick a recent college graduate, amateur magician, and monkey owner. The world has become a dangerous place for everyone; half the population has died, and in their deaths left the country in shambles—roads are gridlocked, communication avenues have all but dried up, the Secretary of Agriculture has become president, and the country is beset with food shortages and paranoia. Yorick, unsure of why he and his monkey are the only beings with Y chromosomes to survive, journeys across the country in search of answers and a way to contact his girlfriend, Beth.

As hokey as the premise sounds, the entire 10-volume collection is a gripping, thought-provoking, and even funny series.
