Y: The Last Man: Book 2

In 2002, the world changes forever. Every man, every boy, every mammal with a Y chromosome everywhere on Earth suddenly collapses and dies. With the loss of nearly half the planet's population, the gears of society grind to a halt, and a world of women is left to pick up the pieces and try to keep civilization from collapsing entirely. The "gendercide," however, is not absolutely complete. For some unknown reason, one young man named Yorick Brown and his pet male monkey, Ampersand, are spared. Overnight, this anonymous twentysomething becomes the most important person on the planet - the key, it is hoped, to unlocking the secret of the mysterious sex-specific plague. For Yorick himself, the most important person on the planet is 10, 000 miles away - and he will stop at nothing to find her. But as he travels across this strange new world, danger and opportunity alike threaten to derail his journey - and with it the future of the human race.

Biography

Early life and career

As an undergraduate film student at New York University, Vaughan took part in Marvel's Stan-hattan Project, a class for fledgling comic book writers that also helped Joe Kelly break into comic books. Vaughan's first credit was "Cable" #43 (May 1997).

Later career

Vaughan has written most of the major DC and Marvel characters, including Batman and the X-Men. He has also written several screenplays, stage plays, and short stories, although he prefers writing comic books. He has stated in an interview with Wizarduniverse.com [ [http://www.wizarduniverse.com/magazine/wizard/001089880.cfm Brian Bendis interviews Brian K. Vaughan] ] that he prefers to write his own creations like "" and "Ex Machina" because he doesn't think he's the best at using his "voice" with company-owned characters.
