I haven’t read a comic book since I was a child, saving my measly allowance for Archie and his friends. Once I discovered my mother’s Harold Robbins novels, I never went back to comics…until now.A number of my Goodreads friends enjoy graphic novels (as they are called now), so I became curious and asked my friend Kemper for a recommendation. Y: The Last Man was perfect for me to start with. I love post-apocalyptic stories and wanted some light, easy reading between school books.A plague that destroys the world’s male population, except a young man and his monkey. Amazons who want to rid the world of the last vestige of male oppression. A model who disposes of corpses. A mysterious agent who knits. Republicans with guns. Humorous dialogue, great illustrations, fun characters and a fast-paced story made me gobble this up in one sitting. Looking forward to more!
