Y – The Last Man

1:59 pm | writes:

Brian K. Vaughn’s epic comic book series "Y – The Last Man", came to an end today with the release of issue #60.  Funny, suspenseful, and insightful – it’s a comic for people that think they don’t like comics. 

 

Basically, the plot hinges on Yorick Brown, an amateur escapologist, fool in love, and part time foster parent to a poop-slinging helper monkey named Ampersand – and how he responds when a global catastrophe leaves him as the last man – not human, but man – on earth.

 

Check out the crack-like first issue here

I remember my first taste of cilantro – and its almost greasy, earthy taste.  Today it’s one of my favorites, but apparently it still has more than its share of Haters.

Chip Kidd at Home

Here is an interesting Dwell video profile of book designer/novelist/"singer" Chip Kidd – directed by a fellow NYU alumnus that I loathed.  So it’s cool to uncool ratio is split dead even as far as I am concerned.
