Y: The Last Man, winner of three Eisner Awards and one of the most
critically acclaimed, best-selling comic books series of the last decade, is
that rare example of a page-turner that is at once humorous, socially relevant,
and endlessly surprising. Written by Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, Pride of
Baghdad, Ex Machina) with art by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of
Yorick Brown - the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that
instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a
mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist, and his pet monkey,
Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to
why he's the last man on earth.
This Absolute Edition features the first twenty issues of this action-packed
series along with special script pages, character sketches, and a cover gallery.

Collects Y: The Last Man #1-20.
