Last Man is awesome


I just read the two first volumes of “Last Man”, the incredible action comic by french authors Bastien Vivès, Michael Sanlaville and Balak, published by First Second. Each book is around 200 pages, but I read it in one sitting 'cause I just couldn’t put it down. It was such a refreshing take on an action and adventure story, with a great cast of original and captivating characters. And it’s such a funny book. At certain scenes I had to put the book down to catch my breath because I was laughing out loud.

I haven’t laughed this hard while reading a comic since Jeff Smith’s Bone was coming out on a monthly basis.

Highly recommended.
