Graphic Novel Goodness
I've been checking out the graphic novel section of the bookstores more and more lately. I picked this one up the other day after reading some good reviews on amazon.
What would happen if all the males in the world died, all in an instant? All except for Yorrick and his pet monkey, Ampersand. That is the basic premise of this series.
Yorrick's mother is a congresswomen and his girlfriend is currently in Australia. Though he desperately wants to go find his gf, what's left of the American government wants to keep him on US soil. Yorrick and a guard woman, known only as 355, hit the trail to find a certain scientist that has been doing work with cloning to try and figure out what happened and why Yorrick is the only man left.
Typically when I think of comic books I think of superheroes, but the only thing out of the ordinary here is the fact that all the men are dead.
I really, really enjoyed this graphic novel. I can't wait to pick up the second one today. Highly recommend.
