If you don't read a lot of comic books, and you're looking for a good one to check out, try Y: The Last Man from Vertigo. It's about Yorick, a young man who, for unknown reasons, is the only man on Earth who doesn't die a horrible death on the day that the "man" part of mankind is wiped out. Women take over the world, and the Y-chromosome-sporting Yorick has to stay out of their clutches, since half of them want to kill him and half want to use him in horribly awesome ways. Luckily, Shia "The Beef" LaBeouf knows exactly what that feels like.
In a move that was probably made because his own TV's parental control V-chip didn't work, the new head of HBO recently put the kibosh on its plan to bring '90s comic book series Preacher to late-night. And while HBO may not be ready for such dazzling visuals as an inbred Jesus descendant peeing on people or angel-demon sex-having, Columbia Pictures totally is. Before it was circled and then bailed on by HBO, Preacher was an in-development film project, with Kevin Smith's View Askew producing and James Marsden attached to play the title character. This go-around, if it finally gets off the ground, the film will be directed by Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition, Jarhead), who is currently on the hunt for a lead.
