Must-read graphic novels are futuristic classics that shouldn't be missed. Of course, not every must-see is perfect. That's why we've rated them 1-5 on the patented "crunchy goodness" scale.
Title: Y: The Last Man
Vitals: A mysterious plague wipes out every single male on Earth — except for Yorick Brown and his pet monkey Ampersand. As you'd expect, the first thought that enters their minds is... ROAD TRIP!
Famous names: Brian K. Vaughn, Pia Guerra
Crunchy goodness: 5
Spinoffs/Sequels/Copycats: A movie adaptation is in the works, reportedly featuring the Disburbia team of Carl Ellsworth, DJ Caruso, and (sadly) Shia LaBouf.
Elevator pitch: What if women ran the world, and turned out to be just as big assholes as the men?
Deadliest spoiler: Yorick isn't really the only man left. Oh, and the awesome Agent 355 dies after Yorick confesses his love for her.
