Comic fans rejoice! It seems that the FX adaptation of Y: The Last Man is still on course

The epic series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra tells the story of Yorick Brown (Y) who is the last man on earth after a plague kills all Y-chromosome carriers and his struggle to survive and bring the human race back.

It seems that Vaughan is trying to find the right writers/producers to being the series to life. FX CEO John Landgraf told IGN: “There’s a kind of a scrum of interest in that. We’ve had a number of producers and writers who really want to participate in that.

 “Ultimately, it’s Brian’s call who he wants to work with and I think that’ll come out soon.” 

In the current climate of comic TV popularity, Y would be an epic, human tale among the capes and super powers that would belong more to The Walking Dead camp.

And that is fine with us.



Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
