I <3 Y: The Last Man
. Its final issue holds the runner-up position for comic-book-induced crying jags (Teen Titans v. 3 #20 holds the gold there...) and I love pretty much everything Brian K Vaughan's done. Y
also made me fall in love with Pia Guerra, whose style of art was simple but expressive
as all hell. Yorick was never quite Yorick unless he was illustrated by Guerra.
Unfortunately she disappeared into the ether after that final issue. I saw her at Comic Con 2008, where she rocked at what was essentially a Women of Geek panel. Lucy Lawless dominated, buuuut I was mostly there for Pia Guerra. And it's Lucy Lawless
, so I forgive her.
HOWEVER! Ms Guerra has resurfaced. Illustrating a Ianto comic penned by Gareth David Lloyd.
I might have screamed when I discovered this.
First page is here
She draws Ianto's face awesome. Doesn't she draw Ianto's face awesome? The layout is very Y
. This is not bad. My pull list is still mourning its loss.
This is a A PERFECT MELDING OF MY NERDDOMS.
So, yes anyways. Totes buying the next issue of Torchwood
magazine. Not out for a month. First time I'll have bought any kind of fanmag... they're kind of lame as a general rule. I made fun of my friend who bought a Supernatural
fanmag mercilessly. Which means I'll have to hide this one carefully. :)
I also love Pia Guerra because 355 is the biggest badass ever.
I want to be her when I grow up.
ETA: Pia Guerra has been the artist on the recent Doctor Who comics! HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS!?!?!@?! must*twitch*purchase...
