Are you a fan of the graphic novel “Y: The Last Man?”According to, a fanmade version of “Y: The Last Man” has arisen to tide fans over until the theatrical film is created. Although there have been talks of an official film being made, fans of the graphic novel got restless, and, finally, someone made a film of their own.

The fan film is made by writer/director Christian Cardona (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”), and is called “Y: The Last Man Rising.” The film debuted earlier this month. Check it out below:

According to

“Y: The Last Man” was written by Brian K. Vaughn and was first released in 2002. The graphic novel follows life on Earth after every male mammal dies off unexpectedly. Every mammal except a man named Yorick Brown and his pet monkey Ampersand, that is. The 60-issue-long series followed Yorick and the surviving women as society plummets into anarchy and they seek to live on in this changed world.

What do you think? Should “Y” be made into a film? Is this fan version a sign of great things to come? Would you hope for a Cardona-directed version of the film? Sound of in the comments section below!
