PopFUZE #17



According to Super Hero Hype, Y: The Last Man will hit the silver screen as a trilogy of films. The Y film was first announced last year and I was dumbfounded as to how they could fit the whole saga into one movie. With this now looking like becoming a trilogy, I feel much better about it.

I have just finished reading Vol. 6 of this awesome series and remain convinced that Y: The Last Man is one of the greatest comics of all time. While the movies will never touch the work of Guerra and Vaughn, at least the wider population will be exposed to their brilliance.

Oh, and I can't wait to find out who will play Ampersand!

well i'm just glad they aren't even trying to do just one movie. it would never have worked. i think it's great that this is going movie style. and you're right, one of the best series ever. excellent stuff. i just read the next to the last trade and i guess the last issue hits stands this week. sad to see it go, but these days i'm a big fan of complete stories.

Don't tell me what happens, as I have only just finished Vol 6 TPB. Do you know how many trades there will be in the end?

Y: The Last Man - Best Comic Ever!

Hadn't heard this... hope they do it justice.

It truly is great.
I get it monthly, but only read it once there's a complete arc (or two, or three)... and had the last years worth saved up waiting the final issue...

I've only got 6 left...

I should say, hadn't heard the part about the trilogy... knew about the movie, just figured they'd pull from the book to make a 2 hour thing... so cool, here's hoping!

Originally it was going to be a 'done-in-one' movie, but I just couldn't see how they could pull that off. I'm thrilled we get to see 3 films. It would be cool if they trained a real monkey to play Ampersand, rather than rely on CGI (which I am sure is what they will do).
