Y am I always late to the party?

It's been a very long time since I picked up a comic, and even then I was never a comic book person, just an occasional reader of whatever my brother happen to shove at me. But I just read Y: The Last Man - Unmanned and I'm completely in love with it (thanks for the recommendation spectralbovine!). Every character is interesting, the story unfolds on many levels, the dialog reads really well (and is loaded with fun pop culture references), the illustrations are great... It was a total pleasure. When I started it, I figured I would just read a little here and there—stretch it out over the weekend. Didn't happen. I couldn't stop. And now I can't wait to get the second book and dive in.

It's like that! I hope you enjoy the rest of the series! And if you go slow enough, you may actually be able to get the last trade when it comes out. Otherwise, I'll have to send you the downloaded issues so you can finish the series.

Unless the series goes way down hill at some point, I really can't imagine it losing me along the way. I really enjoyed book 1 more than I would have hoped.
