Y: The Last Man Might Actually Be Real!

Y: The Last Man is one of the greatest comic book stories of all time. It’s a rich, detailed and evocative story about…all sorts of stuff. Look, I’m no good at themes and subtext. It’s a great story and a great comic. I still remember checking out the first tpb because of good word of mouth and then immediately going out and buying the next several.

And we finally have a real, honest-to-god trailer for the upcoming TV show!

Looks pretty cool!

The most shocking thing about this trailer is that it actually exists at all. A Y: The Last Man TV show has been in the works for years at this point. I think Shia LaBeouf was attached to star at one point. It’s one of those shows/movies/adaptations that just never came to be.

But now it’s on its way and will arrive on our screens on on FX and Hulu on Sept. 13! How exciting!

I’ll Believe’em When I See’em

Yesterday’s comic news cornucopia was abuzz with announcements of a Godzilla vs. Kong movie, a Y: The Last Man TV show and two official X-Men shows about Legion and the Hellfire Club. The news was everywhere.

But here’s the thing: I’ll believe’em when I see’em.

And this is one I really want to see!

All of these announcements could be true…or they could just be the same type of announcement we always get. Where’s the Booster Gold TV show that was announced? Where are the Lobo and Metal Men and Justice League Dark movies that were announced? Where’s the Y: The Last Man movie that was announced?

The only project I actually believe will happen is Godzilla vs. Kong, but even then, I’m skeptical. These announcements happen all the time and few of them ever come to pass. So by all means, they can announce whatever they want. But let’s see them put their money where their announcements are!

Also, seriously, Legion and the Hellfire Club?! FOX has access to the entire X-Men library and they chose the two dumbest things to make shows out of? Where’s my X-Factor detective show, dammit?!

Y: The Last Movie

This needs to be made by a real studio, right now.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Y: The Last Man, I’ll give you a synopsis:

A mysterious plague has wiped out every human male on the planet, except for one. How does the hero cope as the last of his kind, in a world ruled by women? It’s smart, well-written, genuinely funny at times, and now it has its own fan-film.
