Disney, through its Star platform, premieres this September 22 the first season of Y: The Last Man (Y: The Last Man), a series produced by FX. Although Disney has been recognized for its work on projects such as WandaVision (Matt Shakman, 2021), Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Kari Skogland, 2021) and Loki (Kate Herron, 2021), all Marvel characters, this time it presents a story from the DC company with almost twenty years of experience in the comic book universe.
Although it may not be a comic very referred to in conversations that fly over the subject, Y: The last man has been sustained in time. The adaptation proposed by Disney and Star invites us to think that it is not only a remarkable contemporary work with a fan base but also a pertinent piece in relation to the present day (or that through its adaptation it allows to address various current issues ).
The arrival of the trailer for Y: The Last Man on August 16 of this year contributed to a reasonable expectation. The production seems solid, in terms of aesthetics and realization, with a series of topics that are attractive to the naked eye: a post-apocalyptic time, humanity reduced to a few and the urgent need to find answers before all instincts prevail over reason.
Y: The Last Man:
some things you should know
The Disney and Star adaptation is inspired by one of the most recognized graphic novels in recent years, Y: The Last Man. That detail, which has been acclaimed, is not a minor thing in such a wide and competitive universe of stories. It was created by screenwriter Brian K. Vaughan, who featured the drawing by Pia Guerra as part of the development for the Vertigo Comics publishing label.. Its first publication was made in 2002. Then there was another, six years later, in 2008. The covers of both editions were prepared by JG Jones and Massimo Carnevale.
What does the story of Y: The Last Man tell? Contrary to what you may suggest, it is not a story in which only one person inhabits the earth. This story tells how, in a post-apocalyptic world, only a specific group of men prevail, those who have the Y gene. In this context, women are the ones who rule the different layers of that very particular world.

In this way, they must deal with the search for a solution to the phenomenon that affects humanity and, in turn, try to preserve an idea of civilization in a complex environment for this. In this context, a man, played by Ben Schnetzer, is the lynchpin of the narrative. He, along with his monkey, will activate different phases of the narrative.
What can you expect from this series? It may be one of the most talked about in this year’s premieres. Both the story, marked by the female influence, and its realization, are relevant and according to different social dynamics. Therefore, it is valid to suspect that it will generate different conversations and, perhaps, it will be remembered as one of the series of the season or the year. However, it is convenient to wait and let each chapter discover its place within current productions.
This September 22 will be available three chapters of Y: The Last Man. Then one will be activated daily during every Wednesday. They are a total of six episodes. The titles are as follows:
Day before, the.Would the World Be Kind.Neil.Karen and Benji.Mann Hunt.Weird Al is Dead.My Mother Saw a Monkey.
