One of the great comic book properties that can be read in it's entirety is the series, Y: The Last Man. Writer Brian K. Vaughn created something special that would be perfect for an HBO series. The adult themes and sweeping story need the freedom of cable to tell the tale properly. Most every library will carry the collected volumes.
This FAN FILM (!!) is of such high quality that it could easily substitute for a network pilot. The creators have just the kind of passion that the project requires to be successful.
