Hey, you wouldn't happen to have a demonoid invite would you? I've been trying to register ever since they came back but registrations haven't opened ever.
I know this book is pretty old by now, but I just finished the full run of Y-the last man. I didn't really like it at first because Yorik is such a douchebag, but he eventually grew on me. Overall I thought the series was pretty great. I hear they're going to turn it in to a movie, but I find it difficult to imagine how they're going to compress that story line in to a movie.
For those that haven't read it, it's the story about the last man on earth. The book opens with every male mammal on earth suddenly bleeding from every orifice and dropping dead, that is every last mammal excepting one douchebag wanna-be magician and his pet monkey. The rest of the series, which spans about 5 years, is about his journey through this new world.
I also just finished Old Man Logan by Mark Millar, which was interesting but not fantastic. Basically a story about Wolverine in a future where the bad guys won and took over the united states. Logan is now a farmer just trying to feed his impoverished family. For mysterious reasons he now refuses violence of any kind. An old friend emerges and asks for his help, and he only agrees because he's behind on the rent.
Personally I thought his Marvel 1602 was much better. Well the main series anyways, the other stuff they made in the universe afterwards was kind of lame. Marvel 1602 is basically a story that explores the marvel universe if it existed in 1602. So the mutants are considered demons, Xavier is a monk, Nick Fury is a spy for the queen, ect.
