Y: The Last Man

Much time has passed since we last heard about the always coming but never arriving movie adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s incredible comic book series, Y: The Last Man.

Back in November of 2010 it looked like the long-attached director/star duo of D.J. Caruso and Shia LaBeouf were out and that The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier was a candidate to take over. Not much has been said since then, but now it would appear that New Line is ready to make another go of it.

Y: The Last Man Sale

Got an extra 60 dollars? Well get out your credit/debit card information because if you haven’t read Y: The Last Man yet, you’re going to need it. Why? Well, because Comixology is offering the entire 60 issue series for 99 cents an issue.

To put it simply, Brian K. Vaughan‘s Y: The Last Man is one of the best comic books of all time. Published by Vertigo and DC Comics, the series focused on a world that only had one man left on Earth. The comic is easily accessible for new readers and is one of those books that creates new readers. But even if you’re not new to comics, the book still has a wealth of material that is bold, creative, and exciting even by today’s standards.

‘Y: The Last Man’ Adaptation Still Stuck; To Make Movies Or A TV Series?

For what seems like an eternity now, an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan‘s incredible graphic novel series, Y: The Last Man, has been in the works.

For most of that time, Disturbia and Eagle Eye director D.J. Caruso has been attached along with his star from those two movies, Shia LaBeouf. At first, LaBeouf seemed a perfect fit for the lead role of Yorick Brown, but as time has moved on and the actor has become a much bigger star, this team has felt less and less fitting and things never played out.

Since then, The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier‘s name has been said to be in the mix to take it on, and while nothing official has come of that, MTV was able to talk to him recently about where things stand in the ever-difficult task of bringing a live-action version of the graphic novel to our eyes.

Scooby Doo

Someone named Dr. Monster has an awesome artist remix of Scooby Doo in which Velma, the nerdy girl of the group, is the only remaining survivor of the the Mystery Team after zombies, vampires, and other evil creatures have taken over the planet. Click the image to see it in-full.

She isn’t completely alone, as a solid, Dolberman version of Scooby has shed his goofy skin and is ready and willing to protect with highly-aggressive nature. Velma has also grown up in her new role, making sure to always be equipped with a shotgun, machete, and wooden stakes while wearing a cross ’round her neck. She also re-named the van The Misery Machine and pimped it out with flammables, an artillery of weaponry, a giant wooden stake, ultra-powered lights, and a nice little memorial for Fred, Daphne, and Shaggy.

Brian K. Vaughan Breaks Hearts; Leaves ‘Lost’ Writing Team

Vaughan

Very recently an episode of Top Chef Masters aired in which chefs created dishes using only Dharma Initiative-approved food items from the show Lost. These dishes were served to the show’s writing and producing team, including Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, and Brian K. Vaughan. As a massive fan of Lost, I recall being reminded of how awesome it was knowing Vaughan — creator of amazing comic books like Y: The Last Man, Pride of Baghdad, and Runaways — was also a part of this special show. Now this is no more, as it has been confirmed that Brian K. Vaughan has left the show to move on to other things.

In a brief, passing moment during a Q&A session, Damon Lindelof was asked what Vaughan was like, to which he simply replied “Unfortunately he has left for greener pastures. When he first came on the show Jorge Garcia was ecstatic because he’s a huge fan of his work.” This depressing news was later confirmed by ABC.

This of course doesn’t mean that Lost is going to suck or anything extreme like that — Vaughan didn’t even join the show up until season 3 — but the mark he left on the show while he was there will forever be appreciated. Namely, the amount of fantastic pop culture references he slipped into various episodes was especially enjoyable.
