Y: The Last Man is the sort of comic that you can’t put down. I had a hard time stopping myself from staying up all night to read the entire series. Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s story of the last man on the the planet (a plague inexplicably wipes out all males on Earth) is simply fascinating. Hollywood has discussed bringing it to screen over the years, but they already have tough competition. Christian Cardona’s fan film Y: The Last Man Rising is freaking awesome. The casting for Yorick, Agent 355, and Victoria is spot on, and I feel like the short captures the essence of the comic series over its 20 minutes.
If you’re a fan of the comic book, I think you’ll be impressed with this adaptation. If you haven’t read the comic, I hope this inspires you to do so.
Watch the film after the break.
